If you enjoy well-priced tapas and drinks check out this little restaurant in Dogpatch. Not crowded, parking is fairly easy and the food is tasty. I found the sangria and house pina colada a little sweet but really enjoyed the braised kale, croquetas, and shrimp...More

The tacos were so amazing with a jicama "shell". It was hard to imagine that it could be that good. We had the fish tacos, and the house made chips. Both were fantastic. It is primarily a dinner spot which meant my wife and I...More

This place is a bit tucked away so we just discovered it after living nearby for a year. This is not a destination restaurant, in my opinion. But it is exactly what you'd expect for a great neighborhood restaurant: Well priced items that are delicious,...More

Poquito has great Cuban/South American food. Margaritas are great...happy hour is very good, food is authentic in a hip, hideaway atmosphere in emerging Dogpatch area of SF. Parking is a little tricky, but this is one to put on your list if in the area.

This is a great find if you have a hankering for good Mexican cuisine. Not too far from downtown, it is certainly worth looking for. The tortillas are made right in front of you and the food is very fresh and delicious. The chili rellenos...More
