We had a great burger there and a Dreyer's Black and White Shake. The staff was great and so was the service. It was about 25 blocks from Lands End toward town. It has been operating since 1959. What a great find.

Service from the guys was friendly and I could customise my burger a bit from what they had on the menu. The fella serving me was happy to explain things on the menu and while I expected my burger to be a little bigger, I still enjoyed my meal outside in their nice little courtyard out the back. I guess... More

We LOVE finding places that look like Bill's because they scream local, favorite, and consistently good ol' food. Bill's place has a great locals vibe and upon entering you are greeted by friendly owner, servers and cooks. Everyone in there eating looks like they live within a few blocks which is always a good sign. I like the menu with... More

I've been going to Bill's for over 30 years but moved out of SF some years back so I only eat here rarely now. But the good, basic diner food is still yummy. Burgers, patty melts, tuna melts, hot dogs..... Substantial lunch and very friendly service. Wonderful neighborhood place.

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for a quick burger and beer. Everything I'd heard about Bill's was true. Just a great, funky spot. The meat was fresh, and the fries cut in house. Great selection to choose from.

Happened upon this retro burger joint. Great burger from the open grill , the hand cut fries and the shakes blended the "old way". Couldn't ask for better service or better food!!

Been going to this place since I was eight years old. And not much has changed in twenty years. Great food, service and hospitality. This is defiantly a dive diner, but always a gem in my eyes.

Everytime i go to San Francisco i go to Bill's.Why? Because its the quintessential 50's American burger joint! The burgers are great - i always have a Bills #2 (they even had a veggie burger for those less carnivorous amongst you) and the service is super friendly. I am not so mad about their fries but i have been told... More

After spending time on Ocean Beach, we decided to drive a few miles to get a decent lunch. Bill's is a local spot known for their burgers. They did not disappoint. There is seating inside and outside (out back). The service was quick and very friendly. Parking was a challenge as there are only metered spots on the streets. We... More

My wife and I tried this place after I saw a review on Check Please! Bay Area on KQED. It seemed like a place we liked when we lived in Houston - good comfort food in a low key casual atmosphere, and we were right! I had a chocolate milkshake made the old fashioned way(real ice cream and milk delivered... More
