Chilebrown at home

One must walk or drive through the streets of San Francisco to find Memphis Minnie’s. You will pass by ‘Rooky Ricardo’s Record Shop’ and you know you have almost arrived at one of the best barbeque joints in the Bay Area. Memphis Minnie’s is a destination smoke house restaurant, serving some of the finest barbeque we have ever tasted. Today we sampled several non-barbeque items from the menu.

The ‘Minnie’s Maxi Burger’ is a fairly new item on Memphis Minnie’s menu. Half a pound of freshly ground chuck is cooked on the grill and covered with house made pimento cheese. To make this burger a Mad Meat Genius must have creation, some house cured bacon and crispy onion strings are added to this wonderful burger sandwich. This is one wild and delicious burger. It was very rich with the pimento cheese and the bacon was over the top crazy delicious. I may have been happy without the onion strings but it was part of the experience.

Some pork roll appetizers where added to our meal to compliment this Maxi burger. These fried tubes of meat love where served with a decadent spicy mustard mayonnaise type dipping sauce. This sauce had just a slight kick to send these meat rolls into outer space of flavor.

When you order barbeque at Memphis Minnie’s, the meat comes to your table without sauce. The food is so good that you do not even need sauce but four different sauces are available at your table. You may see the skull and cross bones on the bottle of Beezlebobs. I can honestly say this is one sauce that Chilebrown cannot handle. This may be hard to believe but it is actually to hot for my palate. There, I have said it with my head hung low.
  Come for the barbeque and try everything. You will not be disappointed

oh man, I forgot to tell you about the house fries as a side of the Maxi Burger. Crispy with a crunch and when you hit the center, a spud experience transformed one into a burgar and fry magical meeting. Salty to perfection!

Gotta try this place! Soon! I'll stay away from the killer sauce, however.

Zoomie, Just the name of Beezlebobs scares me. I do have to admit the restaurants version was tamer then the bottle to go. The bottle to go made me reflect in so many ways!

I have friends that live in Danville and they're always taking Bart into the City. Will have to forward this to them.

You find the best places! That burger rocks.

highlandsranchfoodie, Taking Bart is a good idea, because Toronado is across the street. They may try all 45 different beers on draught.

Greg, This is one of our favorites for sure.
