    Home to one of 2013's best sandwiches in SF, this Memphis-style BBQ spot focuses on dry rubbed meat and BBQ sandwiches. They offer fantastic sauces like the mustard-based South Carolina-style sauce. Read more

    Smoked fried chicken is very tasty, full flavored and not too salty; cole slaw is creatively made & very good. Great service.

    As a southerner who was born and raised in the South. This is the closest to the real deal BBQ you will find in SF! Also the carry mustard BBQ sauce! A+++ in my book.
    FoodSherpas.comAugust 22, 2011 has a BBQ flair so the stop in SF is Memphis Minnies. You'll find lots of options such as their tasty Memphis ribs. They also pair BBQ with sake! More at

    This BBQ is just as good as some of the best I’ve tried in Kansas City, Memphis, or Texas. Slow service but worth the wait.

    Spicy pulled chicken sandwich was REALLY good. So much flavor. The sauces on the table are also pretty good and not generic.

    The brisket is fantastic at this casual "cue" house. The pulled pork is delicious, as is the killer banana pudding. Read more

    Not to be schizophrenic about it, but there’s a time for laughter, a time for crying, a time for vegetarian food, and a time for Texas beef brisket that’s been smoked for 18 hours. Don't miss out. Read more
