4505 Burgers and BBQ is run by chef and artisan butcher Ryan Farr. Ryan formerly was executive chef at Fifth Floor. He teaches butcher classes and serves up food at the San Francisco Ferry Building Farmer’s Market. We saw them at the Eat Real festival in Oakland and on other occasions the Ferry building. They create homemade relishes, multi-national ’Zilla sauce, and even bacon-dressed chocolate desserts. They have since setup on Divisadero in SF’s Nopa neighborhood.
Decor, Vibe – 4505 Burgers and BBQ has a outdoors picnic area for dining, very casual
Their Menu has burgers, BBQ, and lots of meat.
Choose 2 Meat combo ($17.95) – Pulled pork was fantastic and worth it. The Beef Brisket (+$2) was okay. We’d get a different meat than it. Excellent Basked Beans and collard Greens (+$0.75) Very sour Carolina mustard sauce
1b of Pork Spare Ribs ($14.75) it the spot. Fall off the bone and very smokey.
Cheeseburger ($5 at Eat Real festival, $7 for a bigger one at SF) lettuce, tomato, onion, shh spicy secret sauce was a pretty darn good burger. Cooked to a perfect and juicy medium rare, high quality meat, and a very high quality fluffy artisan bun. Small but great size to allow sampling other eats like the Roli Roti Porchetta sandwich or Prather Ranch hamburger.
Basil Sausage ($5) came on stick but was very good, featuring a little bit of zest and even some bits of basil inside.
Service – It took only a couple minutes to get our burger. Either take it as is or plain with meat and cheese.
Value – On the small size, so value is not good.
Verdict – 4505 Meats serves up a mean burger and BBQ. Give them a try if you are a carnivore.
