Finding Our Roots

In the Fall of 2014, I teamed up with longtime NOPA resident and restaurateur Andre Larzul (Alamo Square Seafood Grill, Revolution Cafe) to bring the Bay Area its first genuine meat and three-style restaurant. A true southern girl and long-time fan of meat and three restaurants, I’m passionate about bringing my roots to San Francisco and sharing southern flavors and traditions with you.

From award-winning fried chicken, famous cream biscuits and overstuffed po’boys, to new classics like an oh-so-decadent fried bologna sandwich, our down-home fare is sure to please.

We serve breakfast, brunch or lunch blue plates everyday, except Tuesdays. But at supper, the meat and three experience comes to life on our ever-evolving menu board. On any given night, we offer a selection of meat dishes such as BBQ ribs, fried catfish, meatloaf or shrimp etouffée, and as many as 20 different sides, which include vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten free options. With so many choices, you’ll always leave happy and satisfied.
