Long layover at San Fran? Come here!! I was travelling solo to Australia when some strangers and I decided to go see the golden gate bridge. The weather had other plans though with low visibility leaving us without a photo opportunity - and thank goodness. We stopped off by this bar and it was heaven. Local, unpretentious and friendly people with proper American food. I had the chilli, chicken wings and of course we had a pitcher of budweiser. My only regrets are: 1) not bringing cash - I still don't get the tipping system, but I know the service we had deserved a proper tip. 2) ordering the uber back to the airport before realising that the supermarket nearby was soooo different to the ones we have in England and I easily could have spent at least half an hour just looking at the ice cream.
