    1st time using Foursquare to find an eating place within walking distance of hotel. This place was at #1 with great reviews of the veggie burger. It's as good as everyone says -add sweet potato fries.

    The housemade organic veggie burger is delish. Order it sunnyside to add an egg and aged white cheddar. Seasonal Veggies or sweet potato fries to round it out. Finish w a salted caramel shake. Mmmm...

    This burger shack's menu's full of totally unique flavor profiles. Choose your patty opt for one of Roam's tasty builds like the Tejano w/ a side sweet potato fries with chipotle sauce n' maple syrup. Read more

    Gluten-free buns and lettuce wrap available for paleo-minded folks! House sauce with blue cheese is the bomb. But.. Make sure you're ok with an annoying crowd in an obnoxious neighborhood.

    Unique burgers and fry choices but not addictive. Good # of add ons except the carmalized onions are mushy. My choice: pacific blue w/zucchini fries on top. Shakes are… (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Get the sunny side housemade veggie burger. Delish, with aged cheddar and a sunny side egg. Mmmmm... sweet potato fries and a kiddie sized milk shake, w/ bruleed marshmellow. Done and done.

    Pretty straight forward burgers that taste like a good hamburger should. If you have ever referred to yourself as a "foodie" (you should jump off a bridge) you'll probably like Umami Burger better.

    Sweet potato fries are outstanding. I don't remember the name of the burger I ordered but it was fantastic with their gluten free bun.

    Laurissa · September 1, 2014
  • Kenny L.

    I'm a meat-lover, but the the veggie burgers here are fantastic. Get it sunny-side on a whole grain bun with a side of zucchini-onion haystack. You'll leave full and satisfied.

    Kenny Liao · December 26, 2011
  • Nimisha

    All of the meats are humanely raised on open pastures and the house-made veggie burgers are organic, gluten free, and vegan. The veg and salt-caramel shake is the best! Read more

    I just tried the sunny side burger and it was delicious as with all the other ones I've tried here. Get the daily special soda too.. I had the blood orange this time.

    Order the sunny side burger with a side of sweet potato fries. This place can get crowded, so have a friend stalk the tables while you wait in line to order.

    The manager (blonde hair running the register) tonight was talking down to employees. I observed a customer not get her burger on time & recvd a gift card frm manager and made his staff pay fr it.

  • Rob R.

    Everything is amazing, but I have a hard time not ordering the burger Tejano style every single time. Also, their milk shakes weigh about 10lbs. You've been warned.

    Rob Ray · October 28, 2011
  • Donald W.

    It's not you're typical burger place. You can choose from: steak, bison, turkey or veggie burgers. The milkshakes are to die for. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Too many big families in line means long wait to order now but food comes pretty fast still. Prices went up a little. On the Fence a lot more now. Looking for better option now.

    Ron A. · August 15, 2012
  • Chris H.

    Maybe the best sweet potato fries I've ever had. Doesn't come with a dipping sauce so make sure and ask for one... Herb mayo is great, and free!

    Chris H. · January 19, 2015
  • Jenna B.

    The turkey tejano burger is delicious! So are the truffle Parmesan fries. The entire restaurant has a great vibe, loved the music they played.

    Jenna Black · August 31, 2014
  • Kelsea L.

    One of the best burger joints we've found in SF, reasonably priced for the quality of food....I got the heritage with elk and sweet potato fries :)

    Kelsea Lundquist · April 11, 2011
  • La C.

    Elk Sunny Side is really good but quite small... If you're two you better order three burgers or add the Fry Fecta, which is a heavy fried mix..

  • PILAR P.

    My favorite burgers in all the world! Every time I come to sfco I must have one!!! And the strawberry milkshake is great!!!

    Veggie? Their veggie burger French & fries style is really delicious! It's made from quinoa&beets. You can even wrap it in lettuce instead of a bun

    Adrian Roessler · April 24, 2013
  • Evan

    Order the French and fries with any meat (I love the turkey, fiancé digs the bison), but swap the Dijon with their herb mayo,

    Evan · June 8, 2012
  • Katie I.

    The Farmers Market Salad is delicious year-round! Adding a trio of turkey burgers on the side makes it even better.

    Katie I. · July 16, 2014
  • Paul V.

    Hard to choose between the Sunnyside burger and the BBQ. Both great. For once the sweet potato fries beat the normal potato.

    Paul Vousden · March 21, 2012
  • Scott S.

    Excellent spot for a quick paleo meal. Make sure to ask for a lettuce wrap to contain the savory grass fed beef.

    Scott Snyder · August 11, 2014
  • Brian B.

    Tejano burger is unique and delicious! The beef burgers here have never let me down.

    Brian Brightbill · August 26, 2014
  • Attune Foods

    Fresh juicy turkey burgers with sauteed mushrooms and russet fries. Try the salted caramel shake- and share it with a friend!

    Attune Foods · June 19, 2010
  • Alex

    Really good quinoa/beet burger. It does sort of fall apart, however, so make sure you grab a fork to finish it off.

    Alex · June 14, 2012
  • Alex H.

    Erg! Salted Caramel Shake blew off my facebuds! I've tried the French & Fries, Tejano and Heritage and they are all good.

    Alex H · April 20, 2012
  • Julia K.

    Huge salad, tasty sweet potato fries, and my favorite burgers in town. Tejano hits the spot every time.

  • Esther A.

    Yum! Get the Bison Burger Tejano style and the Fry-Fecta - 3 types of fries - regular, sweet potato and zucchini!! 

    Esther Assaad · August 26, 2010
  • Nipun S.

    Try the Tejano, Sunny Side or French and Fries. Delicious! Also the fries with Truffle Parmesan!

    Nipun Sachdev · March 20, 2015
  • Morgan M.

    Great for a burger lunch, but not hangover brunch. They don't serve coffee and there are lots of kids on the weekends.

    William Johnson · January 26, 2015

    Great truffled fries. Be sure to get the marshmallow in top of your milkshake! It's worth it :)

    Maile Krauss · April 17, 2011

    Try the The Classic Burger With Bison Meat - Meaty, leaner and less to no fat. Really good.

    ChezBlackstar · June 22, 2012

    Tasty free range beef burgers, or homemade veggy burgers. Don't pass up the fries.

  • ChezBlackstar

    Try the Elk Sunny Side Burger - Unusual meat but very good, mellower than beef.
