My sister and I are heading to San Francisco for 6 nights, this week. We would like to dine on a budget (to the extent that is possible), but would still like to experience the local cuisine and ambience. Any recommendations for cafes, bistros, decent pub grub, or other non-touristy places would be greatly appreciated. Neither of us love Chinese food so we probably will not be heading to China town. We have a car, so will be able to drive anywhere, if needed. Also, our hotel includes breakfast so we are only looking for dinner recommendations.
Thank you in advance, we're looking forward to seeing your great city!
