Slow Club - San Francisco, CA

Slow Club is a hip and happening restaurant just off the 101 freeway in a San Francisco, South of Market location. All the food is fresh and tasty. The servers are very aloof with an extremely high tattoo quotient and cutting-edge eye-glasses. Don't expect attentive service or even a friendly greeting when you show up. On a menu with grilled flatbread and grilled pork paillard, one would not necessarily expect to find a great burger. One would be wrong.

The menu has the current date on it, so it changes, but the three times I have eaten here, the burger ($10.50 with fries and swiss, jack or cheddar cheese - another $1.50 for Gorgonzola)) has been on the menu. I was told by the waitress that it was Neiman Ranch beef. The May 16 menu on the website says Prather Ranch. It doesn't matter. It is cooked to perfection just south of medium. The balsamic onions, mustard and aoili blend for a spicy mixture underneath the soft roll. This one gets a 4.5 spatulas. The thin cut fries are light and tasty and rate a 4.5 as well.

So, if you have a friend craving a muffaletta sandwich, but you just want a burger with a side of attitude, this place is for you.

Burger 4.5 spatulas (out of 5)
Fries 4.5 spatulas
