The Chieftain – San Francisco, CA

My lunch buddy-coworkers and I are awfully indecisive about where to eat, so when one of them had a new recommendation, The Chieftain, an Irish Pub and Restaurant, we went for it. He had been there before and really liked the tuna burger, so away we went. I was in the mood for chicken strips, but that was a no go so I went with the good ole standby burger–$8.95 for a cheeseburger and steak fries.

The burger was very… whelming. Overwhelmed or underwhelmed I was not. The outside was a little charred while the inside was a bit too rare, frozen patties methinks? The bun was good, just above average to balance out the just below average patty.

I don’t prefer steak fries, but these were fine, not crispy enough where they become real good, but not soggy enough to be a bummer.

All in all, and rather briefly, the Chieftain was average. I didn’t come in with any expectations, and I left with them being met. Unfortunately my buddy wasn’t as happy with the tuna burger this time around, but it was a nice place to relax and have a long lunch.
