does anyone know where to find a good blt in the city?

You know, like the kind they have in New York City. In San Francisco or better yet near Castro? Thanks!

  1. My favorite BLT in SF is at Just For You. Great quality bacon and fresh baked bread.

    on 22nd street by 3rd in Potrero.

      How is the food at Just For You, in general?

      1. re: farmersdaughter

        I really like it. standouts are the beigneits and cole slaw. I like getting breakfast items w/ grits and cinnamon raisin toast; lunch things (like crab cake sandwiches!) with coleslaw.
        I don't think I've eve been disappointed w/ a meal there.
        Oh! cash only.

    2. I used to love the BLT on whole grain at Crossroads Cafe near the Embarcadero (and around the corner from their partner, Delancey Street). Nice garden, too.

      1. I like the BLT they make at Tyger's quite a bit. They use a wonderful applewood-smoked bacon and will cook it to order.

        1. I love BLT's--from bad diner versions to the upscale (or even vegan) kind. There is one at Chow on Church Street, though I confess I haven't actually had it. It's not always on the menu (they do recurring daily lunch specials). I had a great one at Market at the Ferry Building--not near the Castro, though.

            I like the Chow BLT (they often add avocado), but like any BLT, the quality of the tomatoes make or break it.

            1. re: The Dive

              Agreed, which is why a truly great BLT is basically nonexistent this time of year. Come Summer, I'll be eating two a week.

          2. I've had a pretty good BLT at Myth Cafe - they added melted cheddar cheese which was better than I had suspected.

              All respect to poulet_roti--I love me some BLTs, but I have to say that the one at Myth stands out as the worst I've had in SF. It's huge and the bread was too thick and too hard--it's almost a little painful to eat. It's really pretty and impressive to look at, but I like more of a diner-style BLT I suppose. I like Tyger's.
