You have to try the slow cooked Texas BBQ Beef! It is absolutely delicious. The view from the Pub is nice to the SF Bay. We'll come back again!

Ate here early one evening because we were looking for an alternative to seafood and steaks. We started with jalapeño poppers that were very tasty. Then we had the pulled pork and beef pot roast. Both were very good and quite similar to the Southern BBQ of our home area. We found out later that the chef was a fellow... More

A good choice and a place where even at a later hour you still can get tasty food. Had a burger with Tater Tots, which the staff recommended and i didn't regret choosing them. Also good selections of beers.

I don't consider San Francisco to be a hotbed of BBQ, so we visited The Pub expecting nothing more than an average meal...some brisket and pulled pork. Unfortunately, this place couldn't even meet our mediocre expectations. We visited on what I believe was a slow night and our server was fast and attentive. Right off the bat he told us... More

We popped in here one afternoon and were bone tired and hungry. This turned out to be one of our favorite meals this trip. Great wait staff, excellent beer and one of the best burgers I've had in ages.

Excellent food, great service and atmosphere. The Mac-and-cheese is delicious. The brisket and baked beans are smoky and wonderful too! Every time we visit San Francisco we make sure to visit at least once.

We waited about 20 minutes and they offered to text us when the table was ready. Pulled pork sandwich was fantastic along with the BBQ pot roast and chilli mac & cheese (order a side of fries to go with the chilli). The tator tots are good but not extraordinary. Many tv's if there is a good game on.

The Pub has a bit better than average food. We did not care for their barbecue sauce. We asked for a taste before we ordered and our waiter was happy to bring one. We skipped the BBQ entrees. The fried chicken was good and so was the hamburger. The ice tea was awful and was generously replaced by the staff.... More

Excellent place to eat in this area. I just had a Coke to drink and the Buffalo Blue Mac n Cheese. Possibly some of the best "macaroni" (it was actually mini shells) and cheese I've ever had. Service was phenomenal, even sitting at the bar.

Great flavor in both the sides and the main one. It also comes with its barbecue sauce in the side. My daughter ordered 3 petties in a... More
