Insider Tip – Sandwiches are cost-effective.

Cuisine – BBQ
Location – San Francisco SOMA
Opened – 2011

Service – Cat Heads BBQ is a order and serve yourself place. The food came fairly quick.
Verdict – Cat Heads BBQ serves up solid renditions of classic dishes. Fellow barbecue fans should give this a try in addition to all standby Memphis Minnie.

Cat Heads BBQ Food Picks:

Cat Heads BBQ San Francisco pulled pork

Two Mains w/ Two Sides ($18) with:
Slow Smoked Pulled Pork Carolina style contained lots of loose, smoky, meat threads full of tangy flavor.

Cat Heads BBQ San Francisco smoked brisket

Coca-Cola Smoked Brisket was marinated for two days and smoked for nine hours was extremely tender, with rough cut chunks of meat.

Their Mustard Sauce is a blend of mustard, black pepper, and cider vinegar. We liked it better than the barbecue sauce.
Cat Heads BBQ Sauce is a Ketchup based sauce, mixed with brown sugar, molasses, and cider vinegar. Was okay, not excellent.

Cat Heads BBQ San Francisco collard greens

Collard Greens are classicly flavor sides. A nice way to balance out the calories.

Cat Heads BBQ San Francisco Mac and cheese

Pimento Mac and Cheese had a slight zesty twinge to it, along with lots of rich cheese flavor.

Watermelon Sweet Tea ($2) tasted more like watermelon juice than ice tea.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
