Best Turkey Sandwich - 2006
OK, OK, maybe Pete's isn't technically a barbecue joint its staff prefers using an enormous rotisserie to the mesquite smoker but when you get a succulent mouthful of the juicy birds that have been rotating all day in the front window, it's a heavenly experience. At lunchtime you can smell the place from blocks away. The standard chicken, available in whole or half dinners, falls right off the bone. The pulled pork is divine. But the best dish on the menu is the enormous barbecue turkey sandwich huge slabs of succulent rotisserie-cooked turkey on a thick, crusty roll, smothered in sweet, smoky sauce. Add a couple sides (baked potato, cob corn, or a surprisingly yummy Greek salad) and Pete's lunches are among the best cheap antidotes to the burrito-blahs you'll find in the Mission.
