And if that wasn't enough, all restaurants that appear with an asterisk are donating $1 from the purchase of each Burger Week burger to the SF Food Bank. Now that's juicy.Read More

And if that wasn't enough, it comes with truffle parmesan fries.
Burger Bar is offering two creations for Burger Week: the Hubert Keller Burger, a buffalo patty with caramelized onions, baby spinach, blue cheese, and a red wine shallot reduction, and the World's Hottest Burger, stuffed with jalapeño and habanero peppers and spicy sauce, then topped with more peppers, jalapeño bacon, tomato, and chipotle aioli and served on a jalapeño bun.

This restaurant may be a magnet for ladies who lunch, but there will be no pinkies raised with their special Estancia beef burger, topped with foie gras, pancetta, cipollini onion jam, and a white truffle-Parmesan cracker. (Do your shopping first, or you may have to go up a size.)

The Jameson Burger is a half-pound patty topped with scamorza, white cheddar, caramelized fried onions, applewood smoked bacon, peppadew corn salsa, and a Jameson maple syrup BBQ sauce.
