The San Francisco Rose
Since 1977, The San Francisco Rose's neon flower has cut a bright profile in the dark night, serving as a beacon that attracts diners in search of laid-back pub grub and a place to watch big games or belt out weekend karaoke. Each day, the kitchen churns out burgers slathered in barbecue sauce and cheesy pizzas, complemented by shareable starters such as nachos and cheese fries or baskets of wings doused in one of five sauces. 30 flat-screen TVs stream HD broadcasts of NBA, MLB, NFL, and NCAA contests for viewing while at the bar, on the pet-friendly outdoor patio, or from across the street with binoculars. In addition to reasonably sized screens, the restaurant also fills its Thorn Room’s 10-foot screen with larger-than-life flickers emanating from an HD projector.
