    Stick to the meats at this down home BBQ spot, located at the base of Bernal Heights. Ribs, brisket and chicken are especially good. Read more

    One of the best BBQ places I've been too! If you're looking to eat a lot of meat AKA gain mass AKA get HUGE - I highly recommend this place for post-workout.

    Ribs, cornbread, and mac/cheese (good cheeses, if watery) fantastic. Brisket only ok. Great sauces (had all including the xxx) reasonably hot with good flavor. Portobello sandwich bit disappointing.

    The Houndog Brisket & Ribs combo with Mac & Cheese side was great. The best BBQ food I've eaten!

    Super friendly service. Good BBQ - coleslaw and Mac and cheese were very good. Pigs candy worth a try for a sweet spin on bacon.

    Baby back ribs & beef brisket. Tasty, but a bit dry. Go for the house BBQ sauce & the bbq shrimp.

    This place has some of the service staff in SF! The food is actually as good as food from the south unlike other BBQ places in town.

    Ribs. Try all the sauces and lick your fingers. Get cornbread and smashed potatoes on the side. Wash down with beer

    We love the famous "hybrid" style of Baby Blues - Memphis-style ribs with a sauce that hails from North Carolina. Plus it's even better when enjoyed with a Trumer!

    Got brisket - it was cut with the grain, not against (50/50 chance of them getting it right :P.)They ran out of iced tea and lemonade at 7pm on a hot Saturday. Avoid the cornbread also.

    Beef brisket with homemade jalapeño vinegar is insane. Wash it down with an ice cold Shiner Bock!

    Leopard-woman is not a Leopard, but rather a Cheetah. In fact, her name is Cheetarah. This tip will make sense once she's your server; I promise.

    On a date? Big Blue for two is just right. Wash down with multiple Shiners. Follow with multiple Tums. Life is good.
