Walked in and was *immediately* overwhelmed by the racket emanating from the four women sitting at the front table near the window. They were SO noisy that I actually had to rip my napkin to use pieces of it as earplugs. All surfaces are tile or plaster, so this only made it louder. I would have walked out immediately, but...

Fantastic bar in San Francisco! We had two fantastic cocktails. I had the jalapeño margarita and it was great really spicy and strong in alcohol! Really friendly and offered a free cocktail upon arrival. Would recommend visiting on a trip to San Fran. We enjoyed more here than the more tourist areas!

Ate here while on a family vacation... The food arrived before the drinks. Parmesan cheese was used on top of an enchilada. Soy sauce is not used in fajitas... They haven't found this out yet. Had to remind the waitress that there were 6 in the party and not 5. The final meal arrived after everyone else's food was past... More

I grew up eating at this restaurant and it had good food and fun atmosphere (extensive christmas decorations all year round). Now the interesting place I knew has been renovated with cheap and poorly chosen finishes. We sat ourselves per sign at door and waited and waited and 15 minutes after seating got a menu from a sullen waitress. I... More

I have seen all the missives about this place. How it's not what it used to be...etc..etc. I am here to tell you, that while the animal heads are no longer on the wall (and the pictures of dead animals after being hunted are not NEAR the animals on the wall...do we miss that really?) this place is great. I... More

Wow. My margarita was tasty and deceptively strong. Other patrons are friendly and it has a party vibe here. My only complaint is that it can get loud! But everyone is having fun and the food is good. The staff is attentive and not intrusive. Win-win!

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
