Home of Q’s Lounge and Dotha’s Juke Joint, this Jack London Square institution (located on the corner of Broadway and 2nd) showcases a variety of neo-soul, hip-hop, and blues acts, along with Monday Night Football (featuring video game tournaments and occasional guest appearances by the Raiderette Nation), live KSFO broadcasts recapping Raiders home games, barbecue, beer, and dinner buffets on the cheap. Birdlegg and the Tight Fit Blues Band perform every Saturday night at 9 p.m.; local and touring acts perform Friday nights at 8:30 p.m.

This chain of family-owned barbecue establishments serves up traditionally smoked and grilled ribs, chicken, brisket, and beef links for both takeout and onsite dining. Although the ribs aren’t up to the high standards of Memphis, Chicago, and Kansas City, they’re luscious, spicy, and satisfying, and the chicken and the brisket are marvelously tender and smoky. (The tough, oddly textured beef links are safely avoidable, however.) Sides include rich, earthy pinto beans; silky, pungent greens; unexciting candied yams; and a crisp, spiky coleslaw. Get the sweet potato pie for dessert.

Hours: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. daily
