Foursquare Tips

  • Paleo friendly. They do lettuce wrap and have an awesome side of roasted kale
  • I absolutely love sitting against the windows with the neatly designed stools!
  • Bahn Baby Bahn! Order it.
  • The All American with pork belly is my favorite burger of all time. Of all time.
  • They've added a couple new burgers! Try the Tong Po or the Firecracker. The latter is pretty spicey!
  • Wow! Let's just say they don't have burgers made if beef, but do have plenty of other options. And terrific coleslaw. And friendly service and beer on tap! A great addition to the hood
  • Bahn me burger
  • The classic is tasty, the pork is super juicy. The lettuce wrap and slaw side are great low carb options
  • Sooo yummy!
  • Tom Pizzica, the Food Network Star runner-up and former host of Outrageous Food, has opened his first restaurant in SOMA. Make sure you try the pork-belly patties which are 100% ground pork belly.
  • Sides of cole slaw and roasted kale are large, flavorful and filling. $8 for the pair makes a well-balanced and filling (vegetarian-friendly) meal.
  • Roasted kale is nicely charred and has just the right amount of residual oil from the cooking. Came out hot and was a great deal at $4. It would benefit from more salt and pepper and/or garlic.
  • Cole slaw is rich, flavorful and delicious; The side is huge and a great deal at $4! Kind of reminds me of the toppings on a Whopper, in all the best ways.
  • The Gringo and Cheese Fries
  • The Pork Belly Burgers with the classic additions are tasty!! I used to work in cooperation with Big Chef when I worked at ZeroCater.
  • The kale is surprisingly delicious
  • Everything
  • Interesting place, nice lunch spot sit by the window and look out. I do feel like they'd be more popular with at least one beef patty option though. Eat the cheese fries fast before they get cold!
  • Working our way through the menu Everything is delicious.
