Some fellow chowhounds from out-of-town are visiting San Francisco, and I'm meeting them this evening at 24th Street and Mission...we're going to walk east along 24th St. toward my house (I live near the General Hospital), the idea being to show them my neighborhood, both chow-wise and otherwise, my house, etc. So we will definitely be in this neighborhood.
I'd like to pick a good spot for dinner, and I'm thinking about Roosevelt Tamale Parlor...I haven't eaten there yet. Any opinions on this choice? Number one priority is good food (so taquerias like Taqueria San Francisco or others are not out of the question) but I was thinking something a bit different might be better. I'd really prefer to stay east of Mission Street and between 18th and 25th, and somewhere that is representative of the neighborhood. Thanks in advance,
