Tips from locals

We are good friends with the bartender, Gaby, and have been coming here for years. Small second-floor restaurant with great Italian food in the heart of the Castro. Reservations are suggested but not required.

Excellent authentic Italian food served in a lovely atmosphere. After dark, they show Italian movies on the back wall. The branzino is excellent. It's located just off Castro Street on 18th.

“Wonderful comfort food--great fried chicken! The best seating is upstairs in the bar--very cozy. If you can, get a table by the window. One of the best Halloweens in the Castro I ever spent was at Eureka, gazing at the revelers below. Entrees between $15-$40, as I recall.”

Burger Restaurant
“Newly re-opened, Hamburger Mary's is a fun time and pretty darn good food (considering) and excellent drink options. It's always fun to be greeted and served by a drag queen. ”

Thai Restaurant
“The closest of several Thai restaurants in the Castro, this also happens to be your co-host's favorite. Try the Pad Thai or the Yellow Curry Chicken, or go for something hot and spicy!”
