Red's Java House


551 The Embarcadero, San Francisco
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Red’s Java House is an old shack on the Embarcadero overlooking the water that makes burgers and fries and has a spacious back patio that runs into the massive parking lot behind it. As individual parts, there’s nothing too mind-blowing about this historic restaurant on Pier 30, but when it all comes together, and you’re drinking a cold beer while looking back up at the Bay Bridge, it’s a solid reminder about how great simple things can be. The burgers are simple, but they come on a chewy sourdough roll. The patties are super thin, so make sure to get a double.
