Why locals recommend it
Depending on your stance, it’s either one of the best beer bars in the world or a gruff, no-frills dive for industry folks and thirsty bikers. In truth, it’s both. At Toronado, you can order some of the tastiest, most obscure beers around—just don’t expect to get a smile in return. Or a seat, for that matter. At noon on Tuesdays, order a cheeseburger next door at Rosamunde and enjoy it over a beer at Toronado—the neighborhood’s finest DIY lunch combo.
Tips from locals
Cash only! Though super divey, Toronado has probably the best selection of reasonably priced beer in the city! Don't expect friendly service or clean bathrooms.
The largest beer selection in San Francisco, cash only, the service is abrupt, but there's no beer selection anywhere that comes close, it's epic! Note, it's beer only, they may have wine, but no hard alcohol.
