Darla's Restaurant - San Francisco (closed)

3.5/5 stars

In a fantastic place to eat like San Francisco, you've got the guts if you dare to claim "quite possibly the best burgers around"...

I'm an avid Jatbar reader and they've got some pretty terrific (and plentiful) burger reviews. One of Jatbar's FAVORITE burgers is Darla's, so I've been wanting to go for awhile.

THE FOOD: It was solid - not my favorite, Clark's still holds that title, but pretty darn well made. Meat was lightly seasoned and of quality - a drippy, juicy, 1/3 pound. My favorite part of the burger was probably the chewy french roll that held it all together. I ordered the classic - a simple cheeseburger made special with three kinds of cheese - American, Jack, and Swiss. Smeared lightly with mayo and served with lettuce, thin red onions, store-bought, dill pickle chips, and crispy, shoe-string fries, it was overall, a satisfying meal - complete with strawberry milkshake that tasted like it was made with homemade ice cream. Second best part of the meal was the fudge-a-licious brownie served with your check. Nice touch! I want to come back and try the Southern-lookin' fried chicken and mashed potatoes. The burgers were nice, but definitely not the best around.

THE PLACE: Cute and neighborhood-y, with Japanese influences. I thought that was funny. An all-American burger place with Japanese art on the wall and vending machines that you'd find in Akihabara. Prices were reasonable.
