Whether I’m nursing a nasty hangover or am just in the mood for a big, hearty helping of burgers and fries, South End Grill ‘n’ Bar is my Mission go-to.
But what I didn’t realize is that South End also has a really great happy hour special: From 5pm -7pm every day, a combo including a burger, fries and a beer is only $7. While that’s definitely what I’ll be ordering, during happy hour the daily mac & cheese is also only $6 and yam chips (ew, but whatever floats your boat) and chicken wings are a mere $3.50 per order. If you’re inclined to order off the regular menu, go for the mac and cheese bar, an extensive list of various cheesy concoctions like “fiesta mac,” which includes ground beef, tomatoes, cilantro, and sour cream, or the “crab mac,” with crab, garlic, parmesan, cheddar and jack cheese.
Okay, I’m not too sure how I feel about crab in my macaroni and cheese. Best to play it safe with the deliciously meaty burgers and crispy curly fries. And, of course, a nice, cold PBR to wash it all down.amSouth End Grill ‘n’ Bar 1499 Valencia St. (btwn 25th & 26th St.) [Mission]
