    Owner Yeung must be one of the friendliest, most welcoming independent restaurant owners in San Francisco, and his burgers are KILLER GOOD. Have the house burger w/ a garlic fries/onion rings combo.

    A friend advised me to turn your burger upside down as you eat it. Burger sauce and everything soaks into the bottom bun from the get go and gets messy, so flip it over and let it absorb into the top

    Best and cheapest meal we had in San Fran. Both burgers were killer and the sweet potato fries rocked! Cash only and no alcohol (even though it says differently online).

    A great feast of all combinations of burgers and fries. I ordered deluxe with cheese and a spries that is sweet potato fries and normal fries. Good place for feel good food.
  • Ben C.
    Had the burger with avocado on it and it was really good, however my friends had just a burger with several cheeses on it and it was phenomenal. Tons of choices.

    Chef-owner Sylvia Park Yi's burgers range from the traditional to the Hawaiian-influenced Bula Burger (Niman Ranch beef patty topped with bacon, Swiss cheese and pineapple teriyaki sauce).

    Best veggie patty I've ever had! I recommend it in the Spicy Sly. Beware gluten-freers, the fries are breaded (just added deliciousness).
