Get over to South End before everyone (and their mom) gets there; you won't be sorry, especially when you've got a heaven-sent mac 'n beer combo in front of you.When we think of comfort food, nothing quite rivals the gooey cheesy goodness of mac n' cheese. Steve at South End knows it well, which is why he's got a mac bar menu that offers 10 different mac n' cheeses (in entree-sized bowls, no less). Try the Burger Mac for some beef with your cheese, the Margherita Mac for a fresh mozzarella and basil version or the Fiesta Mac for a taco topping to your mac n' cheese. Each mac has a suggested beer pairing, which goes with Steve's well-curated list of West Coast microbrews, so be sure to grab a beer for the full-on grill 'n bar experience. And if mac's not your thing,
South End sees a lot of locals dropping in to socialize, watch the game or grab their favorite comfort food. Steve himself is a Mission local, and he's got love for the neighborhood, especially the southernmost strip of Valencia that gives South End its name (check out the giant painting of Valencia Street if you've got doubts). He says the blocks north of Cesar Chavez are the last undeveloped outpost of the Mission, and that's about to change—fast. So get over to South End before everyone (and their mom) gets there; you won't be sorry, especially when you've got a heaven-sent mac 'n beer combo in front of you.
