Burger Bar San Francisco now open

What an absolute JOKE. While the burgers are tasty and well built, they have the gall to charge you for....wait for it....DIJON MUSTARD. You've got to be kidding me. $22 for a burger and they charge for dijon. Not only that, 'I'm sorry sir, you can't change the chefs choice burgers". I wanted a Hubert Keller Burger, without blue cheese, as i can't eat cheese. When I was told that i couldn't substitute, I was tempted to ask if the server had seen the film 5 easy pieces, (white toast) but since she wasn't old enough to get into an R rated film, i dropped it. In any case, had to build my own. Which cost MORE THAN THE PREPACKAGED VERSION. The place is unbelievable.

The other side was we were shown 2 tables right next to serving stations, while there were 1/2 dozen other two-tops available. We pressed the issue and were awarded a better location right by the entrance to the bathroom.

Oh, yeah. The lemonade, @ $4 per is watered down country time.

Come on, guys......

If you haven't figured it out by now, we won't return. Keep the place in Vegas, and hope to attract a lovely touristy macy's crowd. You'll make your return on investment and your investors will be happy. Keep teaching the servers to sell sell sell. That's the point, isn;t it? I'm guessing that this won't fly with food concious San Franciscans. Unbelievable is all I'll say.
