My family loves this spot in the Mission. The Fondue options are contemporary, with goat cheese and Spanish sausage, etc. A good beer and wine menu. And the black and white cowboy movies on the TV give it a kitschy charm. Fun and tasty.

We like to hit this place before a night of drinking and leather bars. They serve hot liquid cheese here and you dunk stuff into it. A very good idea c

We took family visiting from Arizona. Reservations may be required. We still had a wait. This is "a hole in the wall" place with a delicious menu of fondue only. Absolutely clean, so don't think dirty when you read hole in the wall.

SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
