    Big Nate's Barbeque

    1665 Folsom San Francisco CA 94103
    Though vegetarians won't find much to eat at former NBA star Nate Thurmond's no-frills barbecue mecca, the rest of us can't go wrong. Five kinds of smoky, slow-cooked meat (Memphis pork, beef brisket, beef links, chicken, and spectacular ribs) come with sides of tasty coleslaw and/or potato salad. Country beans More

    Johnson's Bar-B-Que

    2646 San Bruno San Francisco CA 94134
    "You can eat my meat with no teeth," the sign at Johnson's declares. And it's true - but before you leave your choppers by the bedside, give the owners a call. They'll have your smoky barbecued ribs (beef or pork), hot links, catfish, red snapper, or buffalo fish (!) ready More

    576 Haight San Francisco CA 94117

All meats are smoked More

    CLOSED This cheerful, minimally decorated barbecue place offers ribs, chicken, brisket, and pork; classic sides (mac 'n' cheese, beans, coleslaw); and some surprises, like a grilled portobello mushroom sandwich and main-course salads, which are sure to satisfy even the non-meat-eaters in your party.

    415-896-4250
    Some of the best barbecue in San Francisco, served in a room in which you actually want to linger (unlike most local barbecue spots) - what's not to like? The perhaps overly complicated menu at Baby Blues BBQ offers many ways to combine the basics: excellent pulled pork, shredded beef More

    Some of the best barbecue in the Bay Area is being served up at this pleasant, spacious spot, with a large deck area. Bo McSwine uses Niman Ranch meats to turn out his slow-cooked ribs and brisket, and organic chicken for the succulent barbecued birds. Sides are limited (potato salad, More

    The Broken Record balances itself nicely along the fence between low-brow and highbrow cultures: tattooed bartenders, indie/alt-rock on the stereo, and cheap Pabst keep things unpretentious, while the wall of fine whiskeys and delicious homemade food attract those whose palates wouldn't be caught dead with a PBR. The sweet back More

    Interactive Korean barbecue is the central motif of this wildly popular Formica-decorated venue, where diners sit around a table with a charcoal grill in its center and broil marinated meats to their own taste. A dozen grated, pickled, garlicky house condiments add plenty of flavor and texture, and other entrees More

    With moderately priced (and heavily poured) drinks, a sprawling patio, and an intimate stage in a side room, this Mission District destination is a keystone of indie-hipster nightlife. DJs spin everything from country to funk, bands play everything from samba to punk, and the $1 Monday nights are the stuff More

    This isn't, strictly speaking, a barbecue joint: It's more like a rotisserie-hofbrau, and seems to take its inspiration directly from Pete's, a Mission tradition for 30 years only a few blocks away. George's is larger, brighter, cleaner, takes credit cards, and has a slightly longer menu, but the basic offerings More

    Everyone who eats here leaves smelling faintly of charcoal, but that's a small price to pay for spicy, marinated steak you grill yourself - if you prefer - on the grate in the middle of your table. For those disinclined to do much cooking on a night out, there's bibimbap, More
