Anyone who knows me well enough will know that I'm a total chicken/fish person and mainly stick to that when I order at restaurants or when I cook at home. While I do like red meat, if I never had it again I'd probably be just fine. With that said, every single time I have a burger, and I mean a good, juicy, dripping in sauces burger, I just about think I died and went to heaven. What is it about them? Thankfullllllyyyy, I often forget just how mouth-watering they are thus limiting my intake but I will be the first to admit that there's just something about
However, one thing I won't do is spend a lot of money on one. Maybe I'm bitter about my eating experience ending so quickly but I tend to think that things that are over in just a few bites don't deserve astronomical pricing (burgers, pizza, sandwiches, etc). At the same token, I'm not about to run to the nearest dollar menu at Fast Foods & Crap R' Us, Inc. LLC because barf when you couple that with red meat. So a hybrid restaurant of the two has long been my fave for burgers (outside of a dad & a backyard grill, of course). This was reinforced when we started frequenting Little Big Burger in Portland when we lived down the street [2011 post on that place here, funny to see how different I post now]. In San Francisco, the Little Big Burger equivalent is undoubtedly Super Duper Burgers and they are good. Rill' good. Dangerously good.

^I ordered the Super Burger - Add Cheese
^Jay had the Super Burger - No Cheese, Add Bacon
^We obviously enjoyed said burgers with fries since we're not communists.

^I've had their Veggie Burger before too and it's just as yummy.
The good and bad news is that they also happen to be peppered throughout the city at every GD turn. So I often find myself rounding a block and immediately avoiding eye contact with their siren-song sign like I am passing an old flame I ended poorly with. Because I could eat their fries and burgers all day long. And at their prices, everyone else can too.

We visited The Marina District on Chestnut Street for this post but they are all over the city.
