San Francisco Athletic Club crams about as much sports into one bar as you legally can. This place has more screens than a Circuit City circa 2002, and with that, they could easily get away with having nothing but big pretzels and some wings to mindlessly eat while you watch the Masters. They do have those wings and pretzels, but they’re on the menu next to some legitimately great fish tacos with guacamole and spicy slaw, and huge hot dogs wrapped in bacon and served with griddled onions and peppers. If you reserve a booth beforehand, you can also get a bathtub of beers at your table.
