Best BLT in the Bay Area

So where's the best BLT in the Bay Area?

I understand prime tomato season has just passed, but I just read a post about Aidell's bacon and a BLT, so it got me thinking. (Search came up with nibbles.)

In late July I went to Lulu's, expecting an exceptional BLT as in the past. Perhaps tomato season wasn't fully in swing...but it was disappointing. Well at $12.95, it was, if it was $7 bucks, I'd probably say very good.

In the past couple of weeks I've had BLTs at Lee's Deli (hard to argue w/ $3.50) and Mel's (surprisingly good) but neither were outstanding.

So the question then is: where's the best BLT in the Bay Area...and what were the specific components like (bacon, lettuce, tomato and bread) like?
