So hopefully all you burger fans are well acquainted with the completely and utterly insane burger from ~CAUSWELLS~ and their weekly Monday pop-up at Cease & Desist in the Mission, Burger. Adam Rosenblum (Causwells chef) and Alvin Garcia (Causwells partner) have been looking for a brick-and-mortar location for their burger concept, and they are just about to sign a lease on a 2,000-square-foot space near 6th Street and Market (and no, it’s not Dottie’s). Garcia says it’s going to be a complete buildout, so we’re looking at the first quarter of 2016 on this one. It will be a quick-service format (order at the counter, and they’ll bring your burger to your table), and there will be beer and wine too. This should be the first location of what they hope to be many more. Lucky us. In the meantime, you can keep enjoying their Monday pop-up at Cease & Desist, 2331 Mission St. at 19th St.
More burgers: I’ve been hearing good things about the griddle-steamed (à la White Castle) slider pop-up in the Marina, ~SEL’S OLD-FASHIONED SLIDERS~, happening on Friday and Saturday nights at Lucky Dogs. According to their Yelp profile, they’re “serving the all-American classic cheeseburger in all its original glory, using the perfected method of griddle-steamed cooking introduced in 1921. Made with 100 percent all-natural, source-verified Angus beef from Creekstone Farms, nestled between Martin’s Famous Potato Rolls (flown in direct from the East Coast), with griddled onions, American cheese, and pickles. Crinkle-cut fries are also available with a house-made natural cheddar cheese sauce.” Seriously, where do I sign? See you there. Fri 9pm-1am, Sat 12pm-1am. Follow along on Facebook for updates on Sel’s hours, which change. Lucky Dogs, 2211 Filbert St. at Fillmore.
Another favorite around town is the burger at ~ABV~, and in honor of their one-year anniversary, and 10,000th burger sold (whoa!), they are offering a great deal for the month of July. You can come in for a burger and a pint of Moonlight beer (or a glass of wine) for $10. Score. Available every day Monday through Friday from 2pm to 1am and during brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11am. Happy Birthday, ABV!
