Victory Burger: Open for Business

1 min read

V-Day was declared on November 23rd for burger lovers and the Golden Gate neighborhood (Or “NOBE“, or “3-Corners” … ūüėČ ) with the grand opening of Victory Burger. Actual Cafe‚Äôs Sal Bednarz’s Kickstarter Venture has come to life after a six-month fundraising¬†campaign¬†and construction effort. 369 “Backers” pledged over $25,000 to help Sal¬†retrofit and decorate the¬†adjacent space to his popular Actual Cafe. As a small contributor to this venture, I can’t tell you how gratifying it is to see a project come to life. Especially a project that contributes to the growing sense of community that Sal has played a big part of.¬†Sal’s dedication and passion to his craft will ensure that this will be a success.

Now as for the product, the burger was extremely juicy (the way I like it) and the¬†impressive¬†list of Add-ons and vegetarian options make it hard for anyone not to find something they like. In fact, calling it a “Burger Joint” may not do it justice with ethnic offerings like “Arepa” (Just try it, trust me). A full version of their menu can be seen here. Their hours are currently limited to lunch from Wednesday through Saturday, 11 – 3 p.m. while Sal ramps up his staff (Cooks and “FOH” applicants can apply via these craigslist postings). I’ll amend this post when I hear an update. Our neighborhood may finally have the signature Burger that we have somehow been lacking. Thanks Sal!¬†| More on KQED Bay Area Bites Blog ¬Ľ

The rain would not deny Sal Bednarz “Victory” on Saturday December 1st, 2012.
