I recently took a long trip to the West coast, during
which time I ate a lot of really bad food. (My
traveling companions' tastes would make most Chowhounds
gasp.) But I did have a few good meals.
In San Francisco's Western Addition, on Divisadero
somewhere north of Haight but south of Fulton, I
visited Brother In-Law's Barbecue. I got the half order
of ribs with spicy sauce, along with beans and
something else which I can't remember now. The beans
were good but nothing special, but the meat and sauce
were fantastic. I tasted the chicken with the mild
sauce, and while it didn't blow me away, it definitely
made me happy for at least a moment.
