1 Buckhorn Grill $ American Traditional, Hamburgers

101 4th Street, San Francisco, CA

Listed by

Several locations in the Bay Area, SF and Emeryville that I know of. CAFO meat but excellent tri tip and one of the best deals for meat & veggies. A 12oz cut of beef, au jus with veggies (can sub all roasted veggies for the mashed potatoes/gravy) will run you $16.99. Casual dining, you order at the counter and get a buzzer for your order. Staff is consistently really nice.

3 Roam Artisan Burgers $ Hamburgers

1785 Union Street, San Francisco, CA

Listed by

Grass fed burgers, yay! They also feature exotic meat specials, like elk or bison. Also fairly good ingredients (organic ketchup, ha!), and fries/sweet potato fries are done cooked in rice bran oil. Double up on the patty for your bunless burger for sure.

5 B-Dama $$ Spanish/Tapas, Japanese/Sushi

4301A Piedmont Ave, Oakland, CA

Listed by

Authentic Japanese, high quality ingredients (some organic), and a very interesting small plates menu -- beef tongue, chicken gizzards, pork belly, etc. No rice or noodles in sight!

6 Lin Jia $$ Chinese

3437 Lakeshore Ave, Oakland, CA

Listed by

Want some Chinese food without it being too much of a cheat? This place has grass fed beef and gluten free options! Pretty limited GF options though, especially for lunch.Probably still a soybean oil bonanza. Mongolian beef can actually be done GF even though it's not marked as such on the menu -- highly recommended if you have a craving for some quality takeout style Asian food.
