For the last year or two I have stayed away from the beef burgers at SF Saloon. The meat supplier seemed to have changed for the worse. The very juicy and tasty patty had been replaced by something too firm, with too little fat content and beefy taste. Well, last night I noticed a new burger (49'er) on the menu with bleu cheese crumbles, grilled onions and grilled mushrooms. I like bleu cheese on my burgers. I like the strong counterpoint to the beef taste and the salty content works for me. Often I find that the crumbles are too small or too few, but not in this case. I also added bacon and the extra taste seemed to raise the stakes to an even higher and more delectable level.
This was an excellent burger. And their fries are some of the best in town with an enormous serving that comes with the burger.
During happy hour (4 to 7 PM) all their beers on tap are also a buck cheaper. My Sierra Nevada was $3.50. All in all I left a happy burger diner.
