Best Burger in San Francisco? Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers is a nondescript burger joint using natural beef. You can get buffalo, beef, chicken, turkey, and veggie burgers. They also have hot dogs and salads, but frankly you come here for burgers, fries, shakes, etc. Pearl’s uses Niman ranch meat. They have several locations, Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers on San Francisco’s Nob Hill, and Pearl’s Phat Burgers in Mill Valley’s posh Blithedale shopping area. (Opened 2003) We have dined at both the Mill Valley location and San Francisco.  Our last visit was in September 2016.


Decor, Vibe – Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers is a small cramped interior, clean. Not a lot of tables.  Families, couples, small groups crowding into the place.

Pearls Deluxe Burgers has several different burgers and vary in size and allow customization. They also have specially named burgers that are pre-configured.

Pearls Burgers Picks:

Pearls Deluxe Burgers deluxe burger with bacon cheeseburger

Deluxe Bacon Cheeseburger

The half pound Deluxe Burger ($7.49) with bacon and cheddar cheese was of pretty good size. We should order the 1/4 pound Mini burger next time! When our burger arrived, we quickly smelled the pleasant odors of a freshly cooked burger.  We ordered the burger medium rare and saw pink in there! It was hot and juicy and tasted great. If a restaurant ask you how you want your burger done, you will probably get a decent hamburger. Fresh bun, lettuce, onions and tomatoes helped too. The sesame bun was very fluffy and had higher than usual sesame seed flavor.

BBQ Burger 1/2 lb ($8.99) was a messy treat full of sauce and onions.  Same great medium rare patty and lots of grease and juiciness.

mini Burger 1/4 lb with cheddar ($5.49, $4.99 with no cheese) is big enough for many folks. A real quarter pounder with nice juicy quality meat. Lots of tomato and lettuce slices. Not really a mini in our book.

Kobe burger 1/2 lb ($11.49) with cheese was an expensive but worthwhile treat.  Juicy and some real American Kobe flavors.  3 slices of tomato and some lettuce made this a tall burger. A real Japanese A5 grade Kobe burger would cost triple digits!

Spries ($3.49) half regular fried, half sweet potato fries was a nice change of pace.  The sweet potato fries were on the small side and a little dry. Their fries have little ridges to make them extra crispy.

Pearls Deluxe Burgers Springs

Springs ($3.49) half onion rings, half sweet potato fries was stellar with some solid sweet potato fries and very tasty homemade onion rings. They said the onion ring recipe was a secret.  Garlic Frings ($5.99) with half garlic fries and half onion rings is another fun mashup of fine deep fried goodness.

Vanilla Milk Shake ($3.99) was decent but not overly thick or sweet.

Chili Dog ($6.99) was a bit on the salty side with a thin chili sauce.

Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers service was fine.  It took about 5 minutes for the burger to be brought to us.  The place was pretty small and cramped.  If we wanted a good burger, we’d definitely consider this place.  It is one of the best cheap burgers around, a little better than Custom Burger, and Mo’s in San Francisco, but a lot better than the average burger at McDonalds or In and Out. Burger Bar in Macy’s Downtown San Francisco also has very good burgers and a nice atmosphere, but even higher prices.
