    A to-the-core biker/messenger bar, it doesn't get anymore punk rock than this. That being said, one of the coolest dives in the Mission (let alone San Francisco) as its not a 'scene', its completely unpretentious, and the crowd is deliciously mixed. Weed-friendly in the back garden. Sometimes they do film festivals outside too. They've got the requisite dodgy hostel upstairs, a kitchen that does every kind of BBQ (veggie options too) on the weekend. Packed when the sun is out, its the best way to spend a day among 'real' San Franciscans. Spend a few hours here, crammed on rows and rows of picnic benches between friends and strangers, make new friends, make one-night friends, don't leave without having the best, spiciest, lip-smackingest Bloody Mary (the Margaritas here will knock you on your ass, as well) in the city, and if you're still able to stand by dusk, make sure you get 2 or 3 tamales (you won't be able to stop at just one) from the Mission's world famous "Tamale Lady". She'll sell one to you for 2 bucks. The jukebox is a favourite in the city - you really can't miss with Ween's 10 Golden Country Greats, Gram Parsons or Turbonegro. Hell yes!
