Eating at Sam Burgers


Where North Beach and Chinatown meet in San Francisco, there is a special place. Sam's Burgers simple joint that has been there for going on 55 years. It hasn't changed much and it is still a family-run business and it is still cool:

Metallica loves the place

In 2012 on a episode of  the Travel Channel's "The Layover", a tipsy Anthony Bourdain stumbled into Sam's and basically fell in love with the their burger saying it is "one of the top three" in the world:

The Anthony Bourdain Special

Sam's Burgers is a true San Francisco treat and one of the best places in the city to get true vibe of the city. 


  1. That burger looks delicious Patrick and the place is like a 50's milkbar meets burger den - what a great place.
