Laid back counter ordering place with diner-esque decor. The portions are really big. We had the two meat combo with two sides. Wasn't convinced by the cornbread it came with, tastes like cake! Highly recommend the beef brisket, fried chicken could be a little more seasoned but all in all worth a visit!

Ever been taken to a restaurant filled with delicious scents and mouthwatering food you couldn't eat? All around me were folks chowing down on BBQ while I ate potato salad and cornbread. Both were excellent, by the way. My husband and son cleaned their plates. The next time my husband's feeling under the weather, I plan to give him potato... More

Came here for late lunch/early dinner, staff were so unhelpful and the waitress with blue hair looked bored and unfriendly. Ordered a slab of ribs (to share with my boyfriend) and 2 sides (potato salad and sweet potato). I think you're better off getting 2 medium sides separately because the 2 they give you for an additional $6 with your... More

Popped in here after a lovely day at Dolores Park. Very delicious BBQ. The staff was super nice also, very friendly. We made several trips to the counter as we loved everything we tried and had to try more! Tender and juicy meat and a fun atmosphere. The beef brisket melts in your mouth. So, so yummy. Definitely give this... More

The staff here are full of beans, there's good music playing and they are very friendly, unfortunately, the food was inconsistent, I think you need to know what to order to have a good experience. The smoked brisket was delicious, however the sausage and pulled pork not so great, the mac and cheese was also underwhelming, wish it had been... More

This was our introduction to American barbecue. We were taken there on a drunken night out and it was amazing! We walked out of there wondering where this food has been all our lives. We had the pulled pork, brisket, sweet potato pie and fried peach pie. They were all fantastic but the brisket and sweet potato pie were outstanding.... More

Who would think San Francisco would have BBQ, much less GREAT BBQ at Memphis Minnie's? Try the beef brisket, which is smoked with a generous layer of fat, and it simply melts in your mouth. The Mac and cheese is creamy and cheesy, obviously made from scratch. The collards were a little too vinegary for my taste, but I will... More

Stopped in Memphis Minnie's for a beer and some ribs and wings. I have to say, delicious and totally hit the spot! With so much choice in this area , this place is... More

My boyfriend were geocaching and stopped in for lunch, after finding the nearby geocache. I had the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and he had the brisket sandwich with beans. Everything was delicious! Pulled pork and brisket were tender and tasty. The slaw is vinegar based (slightly sweet and tangy), with cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, onions. The staff are friendly,...

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
