    Street Eats: Best-O-Burger

    Review by Meredith Brody; Photos by Janine Kahn There seems to have been much pent-up lust for upscale fast food (in the person of slider-like mini burgers) in Downtown San Francisco, as can be seen by the briskly-moving line that wraps almost continually around the outside of Best-O-Burger, a con ...
