Top bar recommendations from locals

Pizza Place
$$$
“One of our favorite pizzeria! The line may be long so go during non peak dinning time, or put your name there and walk around have a drink!”
  • 220 locals recommend
Beer Garden
$
“Less than a five-minute walk, you will stumble into this casual beer garden, on the corner of Valencia/Duboce, that is always lively and has a large selection of beers and drinks.”
  • 154 locals recommend
Taco Place
$$
““Not your typical Mexican fare”, the “inventive” tacos and other “tasty” small plates at these “high-energy” taquerias are “full of surprises”; expect a “constant party” in the “hip” surrounds, which all have outdoor tables, and if there’s a “wait” (they’re no-reservations), bartenders mixing “mean cocktails” help pass the time.”
  • 125 locals recommend
Gastropub
$$
“A “Bible-thick beer list”, including an “encyclopedic selection” of Belgian varieties, has “everything” brew buffs “could ask for” at this “cozy” Mission gastropub with an “obscenely knowledgeable” staff (“Did these people all go to beer school?”); the kitchen puts a “high-class spin on traditional pub fare” and the crowd is “lively and fun”, but “get here early” “if you want a seat” (even with renovations that added new interior and sidewalk seats), and prepare for the tab to “set you back a few paychecks.””
  • 107 locals recommend

Cheese Shop
$$
““Everything is so delicious” at this “cute” Mission fromagerie – from the “exceptional” American cheeses to the “awesome” pressed sandwiches to the “amazing” mac 'n' cheese – and the staff is “super-knowledgeable” about wine pairings, too; while “compact”, it's “low-key” enough that “you can actually hear yourself” and “they get extra points” for sidewalk seating; P.S. “go for the Monger's Choice if you're feeling adventuresome.””
  • 56 locals recommend

“ABV prides themselves on having amazing finger foods. They make a mean burger as well. Definitely worth checking out.”

Mexican Restaurant
