The Presidential $85 feeds six with all meats/all sides/all fixins.
4505 Burgers & BBQ opens at 10:30 am today. Line forms to the right. Temporary tables outdoors at 705 Divisadero.
Call 415.231.6993 for to go orders.

Breakfast today: shared 2-meat: brisket and pork shoulder; potato salad, Frankaroni, pickles, sliced onion & a Parker House roll. Iced tea. Three sauces on the table; white-red-mustard vinegar cayenne.
Half rack of pork spareribs to go.

Frankaroni - how can you spell l-o-v-e? Hot and melty and deep-fried; macaroni and cheese and chopped 4505 hot dog.
Potato Salad; perfection, good straight ahead balance of potato-mustard-mayo
Brisket; good smoke ring, love the fatty side, moist and tender.
Pork shoulder; shredded, moist, doesn't need any of the good sauce(s).
Bread & Butter Pickles; crisp and crunchy delights.
Parker House roll; warm and buttery.
Sliced onion; nice counter-point.
White Bread; a must-have.
Pork Spareribs (to go) nice bark, heavy rub, quality cut, toothsome.

"Best Damn Grass Fed Cheeseburger" is my next order.

          lol. had my training at Franklin BBQ in Austin TX - waiting in line at 9 am, I was #3. when they're sold out - that's it for the day.
          Eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a prince, and eat dinner like a pauper.

        2. Great reminder to go to this new-old place. Is there room at tables to eat there?
