Polk Street

Join Explore San Francisco on a stroll through one of our favorite San Francisco neighborhoods. A little less than a mile from start to finish, this walking tour takes you down Polk Street from Russian Hill and Nob Hill, through the Polk Gulch and straight into the Tenderloin. We travel past thresholds of eateries that serve the rich and famous, into historic businesses that survived the earthquake and fire of 1906 and find our way to some of the best food dives and restaurants in the city.

It has been said that tater-tots are the new tapas. How about tater-tots served in a dark bar named after a Clint Eastwood movie? Brilliant right? You'll see a bar made famous because it was the center of a cocaine distribution ring, run by transexuals. Eat at a restaurant that became famous as a bordello. There was once a dentist who made lots and lots of money removing people's teeth and performing oral surgeries, until it was found out that he wasn't a dentist at all! You will have the chance to have a beer in the establishment that is now his namesake. And while times have changed, the best donut shop in all of San Francisco is still here, made one at a time by the same people that were here during the hustler era.

Because this street was never as glamorous as some of it's neighbors, the food movement here has grown slowly but organically, with the owners of most eateries serving the public alongside their staff. Because the street scene here has always been quirky and sometimes on the fringe, the eateries really run the gamut. You will hear some colorful stories from a San Francisco native, eat some good food, and have a beer to wash it all down. We love this neighborhood, for all of it's grit and it's grime, it's real, it's interesting, and fun.
