    Some of the best and cheapest burgers in town! Add a strong beer selection and alcoholic milkshakes and you have a truly addictive experience. I love the vegetarian option the Haight-Ashbury!

    I have to admit that my favorite burger is the Southern Comfort. There’s something about the warm fried-green tomato patty against the cool pimento cheese sauce is that is truly addictive! Read more

    A. List faves? The "Southern Comfort" (pimento cheese, fried green tomatoes, vidalia onions, & bread & butter pickles) coupled with an "Evil Empire" (vanilla vodka, red wing coffee liqeur, ice cream). Read more

    Truly excellent burgers - I go for the basic and add either crispy onions or bacon. Fries are pretty good. Shakes are rich and the shaketails are tasty, thick, large, and come with a kick.

    It might just be a bad night, but the Six Buck Chuck didn’t do it for me as far as burgers go. However, you can’t beat the price. And, for dessert, the Oreo Speedwagon is pleasantly potent.

    Beer and burgers, they got 'em both here in spades. Twenty beers on tap & legit burgers, check out their loaded cheeseburger, the Six Buck Chuck, or the Big Daddy, a bacon, 'shroom & blue cheese burg. Read more

    OMG, what a great meal! The veggie haight Ashbury burger, strawberry rhubarb shake and sweet potato fries. The chicken and Turkey burgers were yum too. I would love to return.

    Six Buck Chuck is the classic cheese burger. Fresh - cut french fries and BTW own root beer. A meal that has wow-ed my taste buds and earned them a new fan.

    No real room for improvement on this place. A great burger for a good price. Grass-fed meat too. Try without a bun. You can really taste the meat. Even more tasty!

    No question about it, the Big Daddy is the burger to get but you must also get the BTS Shake, it blends in a Twix, Butterfinger and Snickers to make the ultimate shake!

    SO good (<-- understatement)! Burgers are cooked to order and filled with flavor. Split fries with a friend and don't order beer if you plan on sitting outside.

    They are jerks about sitting at the bar. Sure for people who haven't ordered in line (which is dumb) but if no one waiting for a bar seat and I'm willing to order more food that seat should be mine.

    The burgers themselves are not seasoned or poorly seasoned. You want lots and lots of toppings (and probably some salt) -- or no meal at all.

    Stay away from the six buck chuck, it doesn't have any flavor. Mine was extremely greasy, but not juicy at all. I had to drench my burger in their BBQ sauce to make it at least decent.
