|The Sunny-Side Burger from Roam Artisan Burgers features an egg on top.|
Roam Artisan Burgers on Fillmore is the second location for this San Francisco burger chain. It is a warm and friendly place to meet friends for burgers, which is exactly what we did one Wednesday night. We all ordered our food at the counter and staked out 10 places at the communal table in the middle. Roam has a very nice wine and beer selection which is definitely a win. But go here for the burgers, which are some of the best I have had in San Francisco.
I got the Sunny-Side ($8.25) with the beef patty, organic free range egg, aged white cheddar, caramalized onions, greens, tomato, sweet chili sauce. The patty is 4.5 ounces but seems bigger. The meat is moist and nicely spiced, cooked just the right medium. Sesame bun toasted and spongy. Sauce is just the right amount of sweet and spicy. Onions sweet and perfect. Fresh tomato slices were fresh and tasty. My only quibble would be the egg yolk should have been runny, not cooked hard.
|Russet Fries from Roam Artisan Burgers|
The Russet Fries ($2.99) are medium cut and sprinkled with parsley. These were not as hot as they could be.
Zucchini onion haystack strings ($3.49) are ok. They were tough to eat and indeed stringy.
The place offers a nice choice of meats including beef, turkey, bison and veggie. I didn't consider anything but beef, but a lot in our party did. They seemed equally pleased.
I will be back. Sorry for the photo quality. The place was very dark. I lit the food with my iPhone.
