This is the place to go if you are up for a genuine bbq dinner. Great sides. We normally go the 6 ppl order. You´ll get something of all. It is awesome - truly.

Great service and a good menu made this an ideal place for an early dinner with young children. Nothing fancy, but friendly and prompt service.

Nice comfortable bbq in the Mission where staff greets many locals who patronize this corner landmark. They really specialize in tasty Memphis style ribs,not fall off the bone type, and tender sliced brisket. Their excellent sauces bring up the flavor of the meats. Their sides are deep south recipes. Fried Okra, spicy collard greens,brown sugar laden sweet potatoes,and delicious banana... More

Great restaurant we shared four meat plates with four sides and all were amazing. Beef brisket chopped was the best and baby pork ribs delicious and sweet and affordable. Good beers and family friendly

Was part of a large group of more than 20 and was disappointed with the food quality. The salads were disgusting and the food wasn't explained to us so we didn't know what we were eating. Drink service was slow. Might be different in a smaller group, but I don't recommend for larger groups.

In the Mission area of San Francisco , this is a great noisy BBQ restaurant . They have a liquor license and loud rock music but my grandchildren loved the place. Simple seating at rough wooden tables. We had the smoked chicken , ribs , brisket served with Cole slaw , sweet potatoes and fries. There was enough for 7... More

Great BBQ in the Mission of SF. Fun place to hang and have some great pulled pork & ribs. Good slaw and fries as well. Liked it all plain, want a big fan of the sauces offered, mostly vinegar based which is not my preference, but everything is cooked perfectly and didn't use the sauces, still delicious. Casual atmosphere, good... More

The staff were really nice and explained the different types of ribs. The memphis ribs were tasty and moderately tender. I've learnt that in San Francisco the ribs are not meant to be fall off the bone tender. They hold their shape on the bone and you use a serrated knife to cut them. After being educated on this point,... More

This humble BBQ place on Mission St. in SF has true slow-cooked ribs that actually melt in your mouth right off the bone! All the meats are excellent, but the baby backs are superb. They have a variety of BBQ sauces on the table, ranging from mild to spicy (though none of them will take the hair off the skin... More
