Picks:

Boxing Room San Francisco BBQ Shrimp

New Orleans-Style BBQ Shrimp ($13) herbs, garlic, paprika, lemon was fairly sedate in terms of flavor, but still included lots of fresh shrimp. Messy!

Boxing Room San Francisco fried chicken

Southern Fried Chicken ($20) braised greens, bacon-giblet gravy had a huge portion of tender chicken. They recently super-sized this dish. The skin was not particularly crispy. A decent dish but not outstanding.

Boxing Room San Francisco whole crab

Whole Crab Special ($32) was cooked in a similar sauce to the BBQ shrimp. A decent dish but no outstanding flavors.
