Just saw Diners, DriveIns and Dives and didn't catch the restaurant name and am having a hard time at the Food Network site to find the episode with the information. Anyhow, it's a whiskey bar in the Mission District that serves great food .... prawn po-boy with crab mayo and avocado, oxtail stew over creamy polenta. Can anyone help me? Will be in SF this spring and want to go!!

        It's in the Excelsior, which is a couple miles south of the Mission.

          Yeah, it's way the hell out there, at the far south end of the Excelsior, on the Crocker-Amazon border. Weird location.

            I don't know what's particularly weird about it. And it doesn't hamper their ability to attract lots of customers.

              Yeah, the same was true for Mom Is Cooking, which was at the same address and was the only other place in that neighborhood I recall ever hearing about.

      It's really just a bar with pretty good food beyond the normal pub fare cranked up, pool table in front lots of people hanging and drinking plus food in the back with a few tables. I'd say to definitely stop by if your are close don't know that I'd consider it a destination place, crowd is 20s & 30s.

        I'd say it is worth a visit from across town. Just be sure to go on a week night to avoid the huge lines!

        You can typically find episodes on youtube:
