While some come to San Francisco for the sights and history, others travel to the bay just for dining in our city alone.
The San Francisco Travel Association estimates that more than 25 million people will be in San Francisco in 2017. And while they are here, tourists have thousands of delicious restaurants to choose from. TripAdvisor's "Travelers' Choice Awards" show which restaurants were the favorites for the chosen ones.
The list includes restaurants from across the country in three categories: good food, daily food, and quick food. Only one job from San Francisco landed on each of these lists – a little underrepresented, if you ask us.
For good food, Kokkari Estiatoro was the traveler's favorite, and they are not alone. Kevin Durant recently said it was one of his favorite restaurants in town. Reviewers mention that they love the lamp chops and grilled octopus in the Greek high-end restaurant.
The Ferry Building is a stop on just about every tourist trip to San Francisco, and one of its restaurants seems to have left a lasting impression Visitors Hog Island Oyster Company was voted number three in the country for "everyday fare". Several critics mentioned that they usually do not like oysters, but enjoyed the fresh taste of Hog Island's shells.
Takeout options make TripAdvisor the top Duper burger in the city. San Francisco's Bay Area chain's six locations are mainly concentrated in tourist areas (four in the city center, one in the Castro and one in the marina), which has something to do with its popularity. Fans say the garlic fries should not be missed.
