darla is the best! 6/7/2008

I go here at least once a week for brunch with my roommates and friends. Darla is like the fun aunt, always making us laugh. I always get a veggie scrambled omelette that comes with toast and home fries and the coffee is delicious! The portabella mushroom sandwich and the veggie burger is amazing too for my fellow vegetarians. And of course, after being completely stuffed in food coma heaven, your check comes with a brownie. A very very yummy brownie. more

Burgers & Brews & Breakfast 5/31/2008

We just went there for the first time in a couple of months. We're so glad that Darla hasn't changed it too much. She keeps the best burgers in town on the menu and keeps adding interesting and new omelettes and other dishes to keep your attention. The place is small (about 50 total seats inside and outside) but the service is really good. Local beer from Berkeley was really fresh, good and cold. My burger had the best bacon I've ever had. My girlfriend had the chicken apple sausage omelette and raved about it all the way home. Darla changes the artwork from local artists all the time. The newest is from a local quilter that uses some very bright colors and patterns that really catch the eye. The restaurant is clean and well kept and a nice place to bring even kids. We paid $25 for two (one breakfast and and one lunch) so it's somewhere in the middle for pricing. WELL WORTH THE MONEY FOLKS. Don't take my word for it. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, drop in. You'll be pleased. Pros: Great Burger Great Breakfast Cons: Parking Sucked more

Darlas is delicious! 5/4/2008

Very good place..... sausage for breakfast are patties ... tasted like they were home-made.... great french toast with bananas and strawberries... even had two kinds of syrup. The crab benedict was tastey as well. Our server was one of the nicest people to ever work in a restaurant... she was a pleasure. Lastly they give you free tasters of brownies when you are done.... everything there was done right! more

NOT possibly the best burger in town 2/13/2008

OK the reason I went in was cause the sign sold me, ""possibly the best burger around""! what a crock of (please add appropriate word here). The food was edible and mediocre but not great like the sign says. very misleading. the service was poor...everyone from the server to the cooks looked like they hated their job. poor ambiance. I would not recommend. more

three stars 12/13/2007

there's several breakfast/burger/lunch places in this area and it feels like i've tried them all. Nothing to me stood out about Darla's, but i wouldn't advise you not to go there. try it if you're feelin the menu. more

delish! 9/19/2007

we've been in san francisco for a couple days and hadn't found a great place to eat yet. we've heard about all the good food in the city, but weren't really impressed with the places we'd been to UNTIL we headed over to golden gate park and ate lunch at darla's. awesome! we felt like we were home... colorado. the burgers were pretty darn good and the breakfast was delish as well. we told the waiter we were going to the cliff house for dinner, he didn't recommend the place, but we loved the food there and the VIEW! he was super friendly tho. darla's is pretty darn good. worth checking out! more

Fantastic Food, Friendly service, great prices....can't beat it! 9/1/2007

We called to see if they could handle 28 people and they said they could. Our group took awhile to all arrive, but the owner and staff were friendly and patient. We had a number of kids and they were great about getting those orders in, and served, first. Everybody was happy with their food and many raved about their burgers. Mine was fantastic and seved sans bun just as requested. The total bill came out to be less than $10 a person, which was a pleasant surprise. My sister wanted something friendly, inexpensive, and good for her rehersal dinner....and that's just what she got. It's too bad most of us were from out of town, otherwise I know we'd all be back. Pros: Service, food and price Cons: Parking, but hey...it's San Francisco! more

Best breakfast ever - Crab Benedict! 8/23/2007

Darla's Crab Benedict is the best breakfast I've had in any restaurant anywhere. This is what motivated me to submit my first-ever restaurant review. more

Best Burger /Breakfast place in the Sunset!!! 6/17/2007

I've eaten at all the other breakfast/burger places in the Sunset and find Darla's to be my restaurant of choice. Darla's has the tastiest burger(other places didn't cook the burger right), tasty fries, delicious breakfasts and good coffee. Other breakfast places may be cheaper(but gross and greasy) but Darla's has great service, it feels clean, the food is yummy and fresh and it's consistent. The prices are reasonable and having Darla serving you is priceless. I love the free brownie they serve you at the end of the meal! Pros: Good food & Good Service more

Definitely not the ""Best burger around"" 3/24/2007

Although the waitress was very friendly and the little brownie on the tab was cute and not bad itself, the rest of the food was well below what I would consider good. I ordered the house burger, and it was flavorless and very thin. The vegetables on the burger didn't taste fresh and the potato salad that came with the meal had too much mayonnaise and not enough potato. Needless to say, I was disappointed. more

Best Burgers You Will Ever Find! 12/26/2006

Deeeelicious burgers! Wow! My family and I go to Darla's every time we are in SF, and Darla's never disappoints! Literally the best burgers I have ever had. The green chile and Monterey Jack burger is my favorite - and is always served to me the way I request - medium rare. And if the burgers are fabulous, the fries are perfect - never greasy and always delivered nice and hot. Great lemonade too - and the refills on the lemonade are free! Service is efficient and Darla is very friendly. And of course everybody loves the little bite-sized brownies that come with the check. A great place for a tasty, inexpensive meal in a relaxing, casual, family (i.e., kids are more than welcome) atmosphere. LOVE it! Pros: Great burgers, great service, casual atmosphere Cons: None! more

Worth going to 12/21/2006

Darla's was really worth going to especially since I don't live on that part of the city. Anyone with kids should really try this place. It wasn't packed when I had went the other night. Service was quick and the food was delicious. Try the southern fried chicken. It was so good and it comes with mashed potatoes & vegetables. If you're like me and likes going to restaurants that has kids' menus, they do have a variety of options to choose from for your kids. And if you didn't know already, Tuesday nights is the night to go. As long as you order one adult entree & a soda, you can get up to two kids' meals free! And when Darla gave us our check, she also gave us some brownies. That was really good too. I'll be sure to be back! Pros: affordable, good food, kid's menu more

Good nonfancy food 9/9/2006

Darla's is the kind of restaurant that you take for granted and if it's not around anymore you will feel a pang of loss. Everything they serve tastes good and is excellent value. Go on a sunny day and seat in the back patio. Or go during Sunday brunch - you can always find a seat, and it's just as good as the other diners on the block. Homemade muffins are a plus, and I love the free bite of brownie they include with the bill. If they revamped the main dining room, they might be a roaring success - there is something about the fengshui of that place that is not right. more

Great Service, good food 8/28/2006

Darla was wonderful. She's friendly and the place is very homey. more

I love this place!! 8/26/2006

Whenever you're in the mood for comfort food, Darla's is the place to go. Her burgers really are wonderful. But they do other things well also, including her delicious fried chicken and omelettes. I also love the fact that you get a little brownie for free at the end of each meal. I always leave Darla's satisfied Pros: Tasty food, yummy brownies, service Cons: Parking more

best clam chowder and ceasar salad 7/27/2006

While wandering along Irving street, looking for a place to eat lunch, we decided to try Darla's. We walked in and found a table right away, it was 1pm on a Friday. The dining room was welcoming, there are also a few tables outside in a rear patio, but today was too chilly to sit there. Neither of us wanted a burger, but there are plenty of other delicious items on the menu. I decided to try the clam chowder and a cheesesteak sandwich. My friend ordered the California sandwich with a small ceasar salad. The clam chowder is absolutely the best I have tasted. My first spoonful tasted of butter, cream and clams with just the right amount of seasonings. I couldn't put my spoon down until I finished off my cup of soup. Next I started in on the sandwich. It was also very delicious. My friend said the ceasar salad dressing was the best, it is homemade by Darla. She needs to market this dressing for sale! To top the meal off, a small brownie bit was brought with the bill. The brownie was also fantastic, very rich and moist. Pros: food, service more

Loved their soup and french fries 6/4/2006

Service was not great but food was good. Some of people commented that the food was greasy but it wasn't. There was a big tree and I think it should be removed to somewhere else. Pros: soup, french fries Cons: service, ambience more

Probably NOT the best burger in town 5/5/2006

We had our first and last experience with Darla's today. Though the staff was reasonably nice and service quick, the food that arrived on the table was, well, just lousy. Beef burgers were undercooked. Turkey burgers had strong, odd spicing - way overspiced with something like Tarragon. The fries were greasy to the point of being disgusting, and the kids chicken nuggets made no pretense of being prepared in the restaurant - they were clearly a common store brand of frozen, dinosaur-shaped things. And to top it all off, this was way overpriced for a meal no better than the average McDonald's. Cons: Expensive, Sub-par food, Lousy ambience more
