the cheeseburger of my dreams

st francis diner, 24th & york, san francisco
as I mentioned in the last post, my inability to obtain a cheeseburger had been haunting both my dreams and my waking life. the first time I tried to go to St Francis, I was thwarted by their winter hours, and so this time I made sure to call ahead. I was heading out even later than I had the last time, because I had forgotten my keys at a friends house the night before, and didn't want to leave the house as I would be locked out. so I waited all day in my (foodless) house for my roommate to get home, finally heading out for the first meal of the day around seven. so yeah, I was pretty much starving by the time I got to the diner. usually I try to take a bunch of pictures of my meal so that I can pick the best one, but this time I only managed to snap a few before devouring the burger. and devour I did- this was exactly the cheeseburger I wanted. it came with everything, and was grilled perfectly. sometimes I prefer American cheese to cheddar, since cheddar doesn't melt as well, but this cheese was practically dripping off the patty. I think the burger lasted all of about a minute and a half, and the fries not that longer.

  3. Delicious, delicious cheeseburger. This picture makes me envious for greased up goodness that is contained within a juicy cooked burger patty.

  4. damn, that burger looks great! my mouth is watering. I hate like hell being on a diet AND being gluten-free. trust me, gluten-free buns don't taste anything like the soft buns at delis, diners and dives. Vikki at www.survival-cooking.com.

  6. I had a killer bacon cheeseburger the other day at Rico's in downtown Oakland at 15th & Franklin. It was perfectly cooked & perfectly tasty. & it came with tater tots, but not just ANY tater tots - these were the idea of tater tots made real - crispy, crunchy, tater tot goodness. Mmmmm. Love your site!

  9. Aww...the perfect burger! The melted cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes really does it for me and those fries looks great too. I was making sub sandwiches for supper, now I might have to make a run to the grocery store and make burgers tonight.
