This has always been a convenient stop when walking up or down Powell Street on Nob Hill. It is a local watering hole with decent bar food. In the past year it has rebranded itself to "The Last Drop", with a broader selection of food...More

Trip Advisor is my "go-to" site for all things travel--but the one deficiency is the lack of current info! Even though the last review was dated April, 2014, it's been closed for MONTHS!!

Last time we visited San Francisco in 2002 we ate here. We returned in Dec 2013 and ate here twice. The food is fantastic love the chilli rellenos. Good food, plenty of it an reasonably priced. Worth a visit.

After a long day on our feet, the restaurants' proximity to our hotel proved inviting. You could never judge this place by it's exterior which could detract some folk. We had Burrito and Tortilla Baskets with Nachos as a side. Some of the nachos were...More
