SF's Best for Ribs

Enjoy one of these delectable rack of ribs in the heart of San Francisco.

4505 Burgers & BBQ

AmericanNoPa
Offering "a taste of true-blue BBQ", this NoPa pit stop from the "hip" 4505 restaurant group doles out "sublime" wood-smoked meats, "ridiculously delicious" burgers and "awesome" sides, all matched with "local brews" and served over the counter "with a smile"; the "sparse" interior and "convivial" patio are "wildly popular" with those "craving" "a killer meal", but "the steady line is worth it."

Baby Blues BBQ

BarbecueBernal Heights
"Come with an appetite" to this "nice attempt at true BBQ" in Bernal Heights, which doles out "large portions" of "heavy-duty" smoked meats (including "juicy" ribs) accompanied by "tangy" sauces; though purists warn it "doesn't compare to Kansas City", they "can't say anything bad" about the "funky" "casual" atmosphere", "fun crowd" or "accommodating" service.

Black Bark BBQ

BarbecueFillmore District/Western Addition
Southern-style barbecue gets a San Francisco twist at this modern Fillmore District joint dishing up slow-smoked meats (with its namesake charred skin), homemade sauces and sides, plus beer and wine on tap. A hip, industrial-styled space with hanging lights features cafe-style service, communal tables and some counter seating.

Memphis Minnie's Bar-B-Que Joint & Smoke House

BarbecueLower Haight
Backers of the "hearty barbecue" at this Lower Haight stop call it "cheaper than flying to Memphis and every bit as tasty"; "portions are generous" and it's a "good value", though the "fast-food setting" makes some suggest getting your order "to go."
