BurgerMeister is a local San Francisco Bay Area burger joint with 7 locations, 3 in San Francisco, Alameda, Berkeley, and Daly City. They pride themselves on making great burgers that are juicy, taste great and require both hands to eat. They’ve won a lot of awards for their burgers.
Open since 1999, they use Niman Ranch all natural, hormone-free and antibiotic-free beef. They uses Mitchell’s ice cream for shakes. We tried the San Francisco Columbus Avenue location near Fisherman’s wharf. They serve burgers, hot dogs, salads, sandwiches, and more. Our last visit was at the end of 2014.
Decor, Vibe – BurgerMeister has clean modern decor with lots of drawings of landmarks on the wall. Many tourists and a couple locals were dining there. Good selection of beers on tap.

BurgerMeister Weekday specials
Cheeseburger ($10.75) with 1/2 lb Niman Ranch Ground Beef pattie, Cheddar cheese, and a side salad. The burger was huge, bigger than most and it was so juicy the lower bun got soggy. The burger was cooked to our specific medium rare and tasted good. It had more charcoal grill flavor that most burgers.
Bacon Cheeseburger ($10.75) with 1/2 lb Niman Ranch Ground Beef patty, with high quality bacon. Nice crisp upper bun, meat cooked to our desired medium. Not too juicy as the moisture had been absorbed by the lower bun. They let it sit too long.
Chicken Club ($12) with grilled chicken breast, applewood smoked bacon, Tillamook cheddar, avocado, lettuce, tomato, on sliced sourdough was HUGE. A super sized sandwich good enough for two people. Fries here are thin, crisp, stellar.
Kids 1/4lb Niman Ranch Burger ($6.50) came with natural cut fries that were very good and a soda. A great deal for a pretty massive burger.
Vanilla Shake ($5.50) with Double rainbow ice cream, was tall and hit the mark.
BurgerMeister took about 5 minutes to cook our burger to order. In 2014, the Westlake branch took forever to bring us our food, order, etc. They need more servers. The burgers here are very good and deserve ordering. We would rank them slightly below our favorites Pearls Fat Burbers. We have no problems going again if wanted a burger and were nearby.
Be sure to checkout their Weekday specials Mon-Fri 2-6pm, Meal Deal Mon-Thurs, and Smart A la Carte burger.
