Downtown San Francisco. I work here. I have worked here for almost a year now. And until the FiveTen Burger truck rolled into town,
I just have not eaten burgers during lunch. Nearby are the fast food chains, or burger bistro in the Westfield mall. You probably won’t see a Burger Bistro review here, because that means I’d have to eat it again. There’s also a fancy steakhouse on the top floor of the mall, but I forgot what that burger was like, so already it was not worth the price.
Great news came only a few weeks ago, a new burger joint was opening up a block away! From the logo alone I was pretty excited. Super Duper looked to be a non-pretentious place to grab a burger and a shake. And on Wednesday I got to go in before they officially opened, along with the rest of the social media nerds, and have a free burger.
Unfortunately, being in downtown SF, there are tons of social media nerds, and when I arrived the line was huge. These days, apparently nothing is really worth doing unless there is a big line you must stand in, but i digress.
The line ended up moving pretty quickly, and I got into the renovated space. They took over the storefront where Seller’s Market used to be, home of the $9 grilled cheese sandwich. The new layout feels a lot nicer, and you walk in and can see the menu. The loft area looks nice too, and they managed to squeeze a decent amount of seats in. They also are planning to build a little patio out front for a few more seats.
I won’t go into full details about the burger at this time, since I got it free, and it was churned out very fast. Not that it was bad by any stretch, I’d just like to back and take my time and order from their full menu. Their fries taste like what In-N-Out fries should taste like. I realize that is kind of a weird statement, but if you try them I think you’ll know exactly what I mean.
I am very excited to have Super Duper only a block away. They have a chocolate chip Super Shake that sounds real enticing. It is a very traditional kind of burger place, with a simplified menu. They only offer “cheese” and not a choice of what kind of cheese, which I do like. It shows they’ve thought about it and decided their burger is best a specific way. That or it’s just cheaper. Who knows.
It is definitely worth a trip, and if you are nearby it’s going to be your best bet for grabbing a good burger.
