    Cute cozy joint on Haight St. Order the two-way combo barbecue with pork ribs and beef brisket, and finish with the banana pudding. Calorie overload, but who cares.

    Tender meat with great mustard and sweet sauces. The mac and cheese is incredibly rich and creamy - mmm.

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

    Amazing Brisket, Beef Ribs, Pulled Pork, Fried Catfish, Onion Rings, and Pastrami! All delish! I recommend this gem to anyone. The only complaint... I need one in New York!

    Beef brisket. Side of Mac and cheese. Cole slaw. Pulled pork is one of the best this side of the Mississippi.

    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

    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.

    Jeremy Kneessi · June 23, 2013
  • Jeff W.

    Two meat platter with greens and Mac and cheese. 4 types of sauce on the table. Must mix BBQ and spicy.

    Jeff Weinstein · April 4, 2013
  • Ann O.

    They make the best Southern fried chicken I've ever had, but it's only available on Saturdays!

  • Seth H.

    One of the cooks is kind of an asshole. Was a bigger guy. He seems like he could be the owner. Didn't care much for the BBQ either.

    Now closed on Mondays for lunch :'(

    Ambere StDenis · June 25, 2012

    Best BBQ in SF. If it's your first time here, get the Southern Star with slaw and try all the sauces.

    Nick Baum · June 21, 2012
  • Andy S.

    Get a pound or a half of brisket, they'll give you sauce but honestly, you won't need it.

    Andy Smith · May 20, 2012
  • Ann O.

    Oh and get the mac & cheese side!

  • Juan Camilo R.

    Order the Minnie's taster to share among 2 or even 3 if not super hungry

  • Scuba S.

    How can y'all be a BBQ place and NOT have BBQ baked beans?! Take the Memphis part outa the name until y'all service some southern BBQ. Other than that everything else is SOLID!

    Memphis Minnie's says no to gas and electricity when it comes to their BBQ. Everything is cooked over white oak.

    Scoutmob · November 28, 2011
  • John C.

    Btw the brisket is oven roasted as per the employee 's statement. Big Nate's is worth the drive

    John Cannon · November 7, 2011
  • Joshua S.

    For the love of god people, stop sitting down before you've ordered. Not fair. Not all of us bring company.
