Nothing goes better with Southern BBQ than a cold pint of beer and a glass of whiskey. Enjoy our traditional Southern cooking, extensive whiskey selection and house-brewed beer.

Fantastic bourbon and rye selection with knowledgable staff. BBQ was good as well, with a great selection of sauces for everyone's taste. Definitely recommend.

They have a good range of whiskey and have some interesting names for cocktails. I liked the Prohibition Sweet Tea. Not too sweet and light on the booze so I could enjoy my hearty ribs meal. The ribs were good and are a sizeable portion that you can easily share with another friend. You can try them with different sauces that are on the table. My favorite was the Baton Rouge Gumbo, which was really, really good and plated to us first. Be sure to finish your gumbo quickly to make space for the ribs though. I think we kept our friends waiting since we were taking our time with the gumbo.

Legit southern BBQ. Far and away the best BBQ in SF. Sides are out of control good too. The fried catfish is one the best I've ever had.

I've walked by Southpaw at least a few hundred times, but I think I've only been there once before. I recently went back again with a few friends, and I was amazed at the service and food. Wish I had thrown Southpaw into my regular rotation earlier! Pretty full on a Saturday night, but we were lucky to get seats at the packed bar and then eventually seated at a table. We ordered a few drinks while we waited. The Southpaw iced tea was really good - sweet but strong. The What What was also good and well balanced with a spicy hint of jalapeno, but didn't taste as strong. Lots of great options for paleo, primal, & gluten-free foodies. I really enjoyed the smoked beef brisket (they offer lean, medium fatty, and fatty cuts) with sweet potatoes (no molasses/sugar added). Also tried the fried pickles with aoli, which were good, but a little too breaded for my taste. The hush puppies were also really good! Service was super friendly and atmosphere was casual and bustling. I can't wait to come back and try their other BBQ dishes!
