Editor’s Note: Sadly, Truck has closed as of July 31st, 2015.

The northeast corner of the Mission is something of a dead zone. It’s basically Best Buy, the place where MUNI buses go to sleep and Truck. That relative lack of NIMBY neighbors is probably what allows Truck to do what it does, which is, more or less, get rowdy. Rumors about this place abound, and some are true; yes, it does get steamy at times; and yes, there are onion rings. In fact, the kitchen is what keeps patrons upright, as the drinks are strong and happy hour deals unbeatable. A barebones smoking area facing 14th Street allows for prime people watching, and the interior is decked out in chrome and trucker mud flaps for maximum butch vibe.

What to drink
Lots of great beer on tap (with rainy day 2-for-1 specials). The rotating menu means greasy bar food constantly coming out of the kitchen; you can destroy your liver and arteries simultaneously.

ProTip
Get on their email list to learn the password for the speakeasy-themed parties, entrance to which is otherwise at the door’s discretion. Also, the kitchen hours can be erratic.
