12 Juicy Burgers Out for Delivery in San Francisco
All your burger cravings, brought straight to your doorstep
Super Duper Burgers
Super Duper is a chain, but it’s our chain, flipping tasty burgers across the city, East Bay, and Peninsula. The mini burger is a single patty, the super doubles up with two patties, and true Northern Californians never forget to upgrade to garlic fries.
This neighborhood bistro serves a full menu, but the burger is the star. The Americana features your favorite melted cheese and house sauce, but instead of fries, it’s okay to get fancy with a tangle of greens or shoestring onions.
Sam’s Pizza & Burgers
Sam’s is a North Beach institution, known for serving night-saving burgers and pizza into the wee hours. The no-frills quarter pounder comes on a sesame bun, and no fancy fries, okay?
The wine country “roadside refresher” is a mini chain by now, but it’s still got it. Peruse a big burger menu, from the Western with bacon, blue cheese, onion rings, and barbecue sauce, to the Californian with a fried egg, balsamic onions, and arugula. Don’t miss the sweet potato fries and Nutella milkshakes.
This diner in a converted old train car has been flipping burgers late into the night since the 1960s. The Grubstake burger is piled with “lots of” bacon, while the “nugget” adds a fried egg, and the “smackdown” goes big with mushrooms and steak sauce.
Roam Artisan Burgers
Roam is another local chain with a focus on sustainability. The create-your-own burger offerings include a selection of beef, bison, turkey, or veggie patties, along with lots of tempting toppings. Some prefer the zucchini-onion haystack over fries.
The Michelin-starred restaurant may have a dining room full of white tablecloths, but it’s just as well known for the burger at the bar. It’s a brisket blend, stacked on an English muffin, with thrice-cooked fries, and for the first time ever, it’s available for delivery.
4505 Burgers & BBQ
4505 started as a whole-animal butchery before opening its burger and barbecue joint on Divis. They’re now delivering their “best damn cheeseburger,” featuring gooey gruyere and a griddled sesame-and-scallion bun. There’s also “frankaroni” fried mac-and-cheese with hot dog inside, and smoked meat by the pound or platter.
WesBurger n' More
WesBurger is a Mission original, in the heart of the neighborhood’s bar scene, with award-winning burgers and retro diner vibes. Wes Rowe slashed the menu last year and doubled down mastering the art of the smashburger. The single hits Happy Meal kiddy nostalgia, simply topped with cheese, pickles, onions, while the double adds red onions and special sauce. No fries. Just tots.
Popsons was a spinoff from Causwells, focusing on the bistro’s most popular menu item, and going all in on burgers. The kitchen butchers and grinds fresh daily, and keeps the burgers simple, with American cheese, special sauce, and seasoned fries.

Hi-Way Burger & Fry
This relative newcomer to the SF burger scene is already a Noe Valley kid favorite. The small counter serves up quality ingredients, in the form of grass-fed burgers, flat-top franks, sweet potato fries, and cookies-n-cream milkshakes.
The West Portal classic has been serving old-school burgers and steaks since 1979. (The Burger Inspector very much admired the wood paneling and “grandpa vibes.”) The burger offers a thick third of a pound of beef or bison, and you can kick in curly fries or mini corn dogs on the side.
