Citizen Band Burger

This place is legit. Really well cooked, great tasting meat. Good Brussels sprouts and roasted cauliflower too.


The burger was big, well seasoned, cooked medium rare, like a actually. And it was on a homemade challah bun which may have been the best part.

This may be the first burger I want to go back for.

Also really great desserts from the adjacent bakery.


Burger and Po Boy at Beast and the Hare

Okay, the burger here was on point, delicious mayo/saucy stuff and fries and the patty was thick and cooked perfectly medium rare and with the best lamb bacon Ive ever had.

But the Po boy…. The PO BOY was ridiculous. Pulled raised pork with fried oysters. A southern square dancin, alligator wrasslin party in my mouth.

Burger + fries, $13. Po boy, doesnt matter get it.



The Burger Rundown – Part 1

I’ve been eating a lot of burgers.  Here are my brief notes:

So far, my favorite has been Super Duper Burger, not just because of the delicious, perfectly cooked burger (I mean grease pit perfect) but because there are unlimited FREE pickles.  I mean, come on.  Obviously, I got the super burger with “everything on it” meaning: lettuce, tomato, red onion, super sauce, jalapeno peppers, grilled onions, and pickles.  Yes, two types of onions and pickles twice.  Burger + Fries + Racer 5 for $17.

I ate another great burger at Marlowe in SOMA.  They put this horseradish aioli on there that’s just creamy and tangy and a bit spicy.  Fries left something to be desired but the bone marrow made up for that (irrelevant, this is about burgers, stay on topic).  Burger + Fries $13.

Last for part one is Umami Burger.  Probably my least favorite of the three but still good.  With regard to atmosphere (again irrelevant) it kind of felt like I was eating in a fraternity: you want another beer bro? burgers are a way of life, bro! I would definitely recommend a nice glass of syrah to compliment that beast of a burger.  Okay.  I got the Manly Burger, my friend got the Port & Stilton.  We split.  They were both fine.  Burger + fries $14.5.

I don’t have photos but I also had a pretty yummy Buffalo burger at Roam on Union St.  It was big and meaty and the truffle fries were good.  Burger + Fries + Beer $20! Kind of a lot.  Still though, honorable mention!

more to come…
