We’re not going to say that Sam’s makes the best burger in the world, but we will say that when you’re eating it, you’ll think it’s the best burger in the world. That’s because the best (and in our opinion) only time to come to this place is when you’re absolutely wasted. It’s within two blocks of five separate neighborhoods (North Beach, Chinatown, the FiDi, Russian Hill, and Nob Hill), so you won’t need to convince people that they’re going very far if you’re already in one of those places. And if they don’t want to come with you, leave them behind - they were dragging you down and it’s pretty small in here anyway. It’s called Sam’s Pizza and Burgers, but you’re really only here to get the burger and laugh at the pizza in the window. Getting a hot dog is also acceptable, but remember, it’s cash only.
