Polker’s Gourmet Burgers is located on the outskirts of Russian Hill in the Polk Street neighborhood shopping district.
This restaurant is very popular for breakfast. You will see lines out the door, most weekend mornings. We came for the burger, but they serve lots of other food.

Polkers Gourmet Burgers San Francisco Cheese Burger

Cheddar Burger ($8.50) was served with a ton of delicious curly fries. Meat was cooked to our desired medium rare and super juicy.
This was one of the better burgers we have had lately. The bun was a little stiff and all the sesame seeds were a bit overpowering.



Polker’s Gourmet Burgers served up a very good burger, very quickly. The prices are reasonable and the serve was decent, no wonder people line up.
They have take out, breakfast is served till 3pm, and burgers are served from 11am onwards.

The place specializes in thin crust pizza and is known for local, organic ingredients. It was rated as a top pizza place by Michael Bauer. Our last visit was in late 2011 and we noticed prices had gone up. Their San Francisco location opened in 2012, we dined here in May 2012. It is located right next door to burger heaven, Polkers.
