Yes, the food isn't cheap, but neither is McDonald's at this point and the food here is 1,000 times fresher, tastier and healthier for you. I had the crispy duck salad, which was actually extremely reasonable in price considering that they give you two pieces of delicious, succulent duck on the bone over fresh, flavorful watercress. The pork bun was terrific, too. Highly recommend it as an alternative to the much more expensive big sister, The Slanted Door, which is nearby.

Not buried in chinatown but also not a tourist trap, two meals here were great - quick, easy, reasonable, fresh, delicious and conveniently located.

constantly "quality controlled" and like the cool, modern interior right off Fillmore Street; another one of Charles Phan's creations and excellent.

According to my local friends this place is the take-out version of another more famous sit-down Asian restaurant in SF.

The food (I had a pork bun and Beef Soup) was excellent and the portions generous ... but we did end up paying $15 a pop ... so it is on the pricey side for a take-out place.

Out the Door offers a nice take-out lunch with limited seating and a few standing-only tables right down the hall in the Ferry Building. The food is very good--my better half and I split the Grilled 5-spice chicken sandwich and the special chicken wings (three full-sized wings, a nice portion) (about $20 all told). If we lived or worked nearby, we'd stop here at least weekly. Stop reading and go grab lunch!
