Anyone been yet? Directly across the street from a major California university and related to the restaurant linked below.
47th Ave and Fulton St, San Francisco, CA
I ordered the brisket sandwich to go one day for lunch. I ordered it "Memphis style" so it had cole slaw on it. The brisket tasted fine and the cole slaw was very good, however the bread to meat ratio was a bit much. I tended up tearing off most of the bread; would've been better with more meat. I think about $9 for the sandwich. I hope to try the ribs this coming week. Their hours are posted as opening at 11, but the day I went I had a feeling I was the first customer at about 11:45 and it seemed like they were just opening. It also took kind of a long time to get the sandwich, but the folks working there were very friendly.
We ordered food to go a few days ago: a pulled pork dish, and a brisket dish. We really wanted to like it (we love BBQ, the place is a few blocks from us, and the owner was very friendly). Sadly, the food was very mediocre. Neither the pulled pork nor the brisket deliver. Teething problems perhaps? Not sure. But food was mediocre. At 13 bucks per person, we expected much better than that.
