Fine brisket at Memphis Minnie's (SF)

Memphis Minnie's is well known here, with both its fans (including me) and detractors. I had their brisket sandwich (with sweet potato side) for lunch today and reacquainted myself with why I like this place so much. It was as good as any brisket I've ever had, and I've had it at a bunch of places in Kansas City and Texas (although not the famous-name Texas places). This was smoky, but not too much so, and both tender and moist without being too fatty for me. As usual, they serve the brisket in thick slices; other places should take note of that. No, it's not always this good, but today's brisket was a gem. The chunks of sweet potato were just right in flavor and texture; they left them relatively plain which was fine with me.
