Not long ago, the only food options available for delivery in San Francisco were pizza and Chinese food, and you wanted a burger, you’d have to venture outside of your home. Those were dark and lonely days, and we’re honestly not sure how we made it through. Fortunately those days are long gone, and you can now take your pick from the best burger restaurants in the city and have them delivered straight to your doorstep. Here are our top five mouth-watering picks for the best delivery burgers in San Francisco. How many of them have you tried?
If a thin, hand-smashed patty with charred and crispy edges on a lightly toasted brioche bun sounds like your idea of burger perfection, Smashburger is the burger joint for you. Choose from tasty classics like a bacon double cheeseburger, or go for a more creative choice like the truffle mushroom swiss burger, but whatever you do, don’t miss the milkshake. It’s hands-down the best milkshake in San Francisco, and it’s ultra-thick, which helps it survive the trip to your house without melting.
Big Mouth Burgers are well-known in San Francisco for their giant, juicy, burgers made with a half-pound of quality beef, but their incredibly varied delivery menu makes them the perfect option if you’re in the mood to try something a little different. We recommend the New Orleans burger, with grilled spicy cajun sausage, or The Texan, which comes piled with slow roasted pork loan smothered in barbecue sauce.
A classic old-school diner, Wesburger ‘n’ More has an extensive menu of comfort food options, from fried chicken to mac and cheese, but the burger is what keeps us coming back for more. The burgers are made with brisket instead of chuck, giving them a great beefy flavor, and the toppings are simple and fresh. The signature choice is the Hot Wes, which comes topping with onion rings, queso, and pickled jalapeños for a bit of heat. Fair warning to any traditionalists out there: they only have tots, no fries. (We doubt you’ll mind!)
We just have two words for you: Chili Cheeseburger. There may be many other delicious options on the menu at Hall of Flame, but none compare with the food-coma-inducing, mouth-wateringly messy goodness that is the Chili Davis Burger. It’s just the right amount of spicy, and somehow manages to hold together despite a generous portion of chili. Add a side of fries (dare we suggest chili cheese fries?) and their signature Oreo milkshake for the ultimate indulgence.
‘Artisan’ might not be the first word that comes to mind when describing the perfect burger, but the team at Roam are trying to change that. Their creative menu has a couple of classic options to keep traditional burger lovers happy, but also a variety of interesting ingredients to satisfy the San Francisco foodie crowd – sustainably sourced bison, anyone? We love the feisty Tejana, which comes topped with pepper jack cheese, jalapeño relish, white corn strips, and a housemade Ranch dressing. No matter what you order, you’re in for a treat, and you won’t find a burger like it anywhere else.
