Movie Theater

Beer Garden
$
“Cash-only beer bar. Was previously for grunge/punk fans, now the scene is for prep-shirt wearing tech employees (not a bad thing).”
  • 152 locals recommend
Latin American Restaurant
$$
“Great rooftop restaurant, vibrant dishes in a fusion cuisine of mexican and peruvian recipes. The ambiance is fun and I would recommend having dinner in this place after a full day of exploring outside. However, wait times on weekends tend to be longer, from 30 minutes to an hour. ”
  • 140 locals recommend
Taco Place
$$
““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.”

Bar

“Local lively LGBT bar in The Mission, with live music on weekends, shuffleboard, and large outdoor back patio.”
  • 127 locals recommend
Pizza Place
$$
“The oozy, buttery deep-dish pies are not a carbon copy of some Chicago creation by any stretch. With topping possibilities like artichokes and goat cheese, they’re a distinctly California creation — and a drop-dead delicious one at that. Note: the menu recently welcomed some healthy seeming things like a roasted kale appetizer and a broccolini topped deep dish pie, but don’t miss the classic — with sausage, mushrooms, and green bell pepper — and the spicy chicken wings. ”

Dive Bar
$
“Cash only! Though super divey, Toronado has probably the best selection of reasonably priced beer in the city! Don't expect friendly service or clean bathrooms. ”
