Books and Burgers

My foodie self is in search for the top three best burgers in San Francisco.

Based on my taste buds of an overall burger bite, my basic criteria includes:

beef patty
cheddar cheese
1000 island dressing (optional)

Note: descriptions are primarily from the venue menu

Rating scale:

kay - in a pinch will satisfy the craving
nay - don't bother

The flavor of the meat was off as it seemed to soak up juices from the grill cooking nearby - like bacon. Also, the bun did not work for me in regards to flavor as well.
