Awhile back, I had a friend visit from the South (I was born and raised in the South as well). I had been talking up Clark's in MV as having a decent hamburger so we went there one day for lunch. He ordered a chili burger and was bummed to receive an open faced sandwich. In the South, a chili burger is a closed sandwich and the chili is a spiced, finely ground meat (with no beans!). Maybe it's an East Coast thing, I'm not sure but, since my friend's visit, I've kept an eye out whenever I visit a hamburger place but so far, every one serves an open faced sandwich and the chili has beans. Is there anywhere in the Bay Area that serves what I'm looking for?
