Went here twice in our holiday, the first time we just ordered chili fries each, the portions were so big we could have shared one of them between us. We returned a few days later and tried the burgers which were amazing. Refills on the coke were the desired option and we are glad we went.

I have heard for a long time how BurgerMeister has such great hamburgers. On this trip, I finally decided to try them. I can honestly say it was just okay. I ordered a cheeseburger with cheddar. My burger barely had any cheese on it and what little cheese it did have, it was stuck to the bun. The overall taste... More

Fantastic burgers. Had the teriyaki burger and it was the best. Great thing is, you can have your burger cooked the way you want it. Rare to well. Prices are decent for San Francisco. The place isn't the prettiest or the fanciest, but it's clean. You get a choice of two sizes of burgers, 1/3 lb and 1/2 lb. the... More

I try to limit my red meat intake, so I don't eat here as often as a would like ---- because the burgers are very very good. The accompaniments are pretty good too.

Superb burgers, freshly made, a little on the pricy side and the fries are only OK but definitely the best burger I've eaten in some time.

Great food for a burger chain. Pretty fast service, and great choices. I like the avocado cheese burger and the fries or onion rings are satisfying.

Love a good burger or chicken sand and till around 5 years ago would eat here about once a week. Still a cute little place. Like the quality charbroilers, hot doggies, grilled sandwiches, many available extras, and nice variety of tableside condiments. The fries that come with are still simply excellent. Add the dull chili or substitute so-so salad/slaw if... More
