Foursquare Tips

  • Brisket and beer. Probably my new favorite brunch in sf.
  • Thumbs up for the architecture and vibe. Not sure I would call their food "BBQ", but I'm from KC ;) full disclosure...I didn't try it either.
  • This place smells heavenly if heaven is a place that renders pigs into candy
  • They weigh by the hundredth of an ounce so make sure you're paying attention to how much meat they weigh. Our $15 brisket went to $16.50 because of weight.
  • Delicious, but way way waaaaay overpriced.
  • Not sure why a few pieces of barbecued meat ended up costing a lot of dollars. Overpriced. But we enjoyed the upbeat and chill vibes!
  • Brisket is tender and delicious but pricey. Don't come expecting to consume large portions.
  • 4 blocks from 22nd st Caltrain station. Come for Taco Tuesday. Porter Beer-Brisket tacos with habanero salsa, and a Cole Porter to pair. Fantastic.
  • Beer and meat items.
  • Safe to say, this is the best, most authentic Texas-style BBQ in SF. Love the level of moisture, smoke, & spicy bark in all the meats. Don't miss the Burnt Ends Baked Beans either.
  • Nice BBQ joint right next to dogpatch boulders. Nice selection of beers. The place is always crowded even on weekday nice. So there's a good chance that you'll have trouble finding a seat.
  • Just a heads up for all my nut allergy folks Smokestack uses almond wood to smoke all their meats. Shouldn't be an issue but bringing it to your attention.
  • Its a cant-fail recipe for neighborhood bar success: one part killer cocktails, one part smoked meats, and one part Magnolia Brewery (a longtime fave whose original location is in Haight-Ashbury).
  • Hipster take on Texas barbecue. Brisket was over-the-top fatty and moist, beyond the best Central TX joints -- but not much flavor. Excellent potato salad and beans, though.
  • Gotta love the place for serving beef ribs.
  • Legit brisket. Collard greens has a great kick. Happy hour M-F from 3 to 6. Don't forget to bring a growler!
  • Been lucky to try some of the best bbq from Texas to Amsterdam - this brisket was up there with the best. Great bark, melts in your mouth. Ribs, slaw also on point. Great, even romantic, ambiance.
  • 30 kinds of Gin, tonic syrup = awesome. Ribs also amazing.
  • Love the brisket tacos!
  • Avoid the beef ribs. There is no meat on the bone. All you get are bone, fat and gristle. if there is any speck meat, it is overcooked, dry & saturated in fat. Very overpriced for what you get.
