Best Barbecue (Outdoor) San Francisco 2009 - Ironwood BBQ
On a sunny day, dining on good, inexpensive barbecue in an unexpected and hidden location can truly feel like the Best of S.F. Above a spacious (and free!) parking lot is a modest pro shop that hides a food counter, where you can order from a reasonably priced menu featuring pulled pork, brisket, and baby back ribs. You can have these served as sandwiches atop scalloped potatoes and beans (known here as a Bogie Bowl), or as plate meals, accompanied by two sides from a list including coleslaw and green salad, served on sectioned paper plates with disposable cutlery. There are a few indoor tables, but on a nice day, head for the shaded patio, from where you can catch a glimpse of the Pacific as well as peaceful duffers and champions golfing on the manicured greens.
