    On Wednesdays, this BBQ shop serves up a pretty darned delicious pastrami sandwich. The meat is impressively smokey, thick-cut, & well-spiced. I just found it just a touch dry.

    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.
