Joe’s Cable Car Restaurant – San Francisco, California

Joe's Cable Car

After walking 12 blocks (down Mission St.) I stumbled upon Joe’s Cable Car Restaurant. As soon as I walked in, it smelled like meat and it felt like home. I was greeted by a butcher grinding chuck steak.

Joe’s grind their burgers daily. The seating area is small and filled with lights and pictures of previous customers.

I gave the menu a once over (it’s filled with pictures) and decided to go with the The Country Fresh Beef Steak (burger with a sunny side up egg and cheddar cheese) and some home style fries. The burgers are 4 ounces unless you go with the Hungry Person (6 ounces) or Paul Bunyan Special (8 ounces).

The burger was one of the freshest I have ever had. It was as if they had just ground the patty (wait a second…) . It was a juicy and savory burger. The fries were good too! I was lucky enough to talk to Joe and thank him for grinding his own burger daily (great tradition!).
