Rosamunde is a sausage place on Lower Haight and on Tuesdays they also sell a cheeseburger special that is the holy grail of homemade burgers in San Francisco. People start lining up before they open and then can wait up to another 40 minutes after they place their order. The Toronado is an dive bar next door and they encourage people to hang out at the bar and have their burger with a beer.
I had heard about the Tuesday only cheeseburgers years ago. I even played hooky a few times from work just to check it out which is essential since they always sell out by early afternoon. It’s hilarious to see the Toronado packed with 50+ some people at around 1PM. I used to see Billy Gould in here all the time and I still see the exact same people in line after all these years, it’s like the Cheers of cheeseburger dinning.
