What's your favorite pork chop in San Francisco?

The BF and I got into a heated discussion about this today. I never order pork chops because I find that they're either hit or miss, and usually the latter, rather than the former. A good pork chop should be flavorful, reasonably fatty on the edges, juicy as hell, and in a perfect world, layered enough in flavor so that you don't get totally palate-fatigued 1/3 of the way through it. The best pork chop I recall having was years ago at Town Hall, but shortly thereafter I stopped ordering pork chops after too many regretful incidences. (I wonder if it's still any good after all these years?) So if I were to jump back into the pork chop game, where would you suggest going for a no-fail PC?

    1. I was not a fan of my pork chop at Town Hall last month. But it was soon followed by a much better one at Schmidt's in the Mission. It must've been an inch thick which made me leery it'd be dry, but it was much juicier than Town Hall's.

        2. The Tee-Off does a great high-end pork chop in a dive bar.

          1. The pork chops grilled over charcoal at Joe's of Westlake in Daly City are worth a try. You would think they would get dried out being cooked like that, but they don't. They are served plain, with no sauce or heavy seasoning. Just pure pork!
