I was cleaning out some papers and found a review I wrote about Red's for my co-workers back in 1982 when alternate venues such as fern bars were very popular. I was glad to see that Red's is still thriving, although much bigger than in...More

Reds is a shack in a pier serving cheeseburgers, hot dogs and bottled beer, with a small bar added in the back. The decor is 1930s waterfront chic, they used to serve longshoremen on the piers before container ships took the traffic to Oakland. Pics...More

Strolling around the piers in San Francisco and came across this place. No nonsense - just traditional burger and hotdogs at their best - must be bouncing on a baseball match day with AT&T just along the road..

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
