Chron's Janny Hu gives Dogpatch's Plow a pretty high 2.5 star rating for a breakfast and lunch stop. "Plow doesn't reinvent classics as much as deliver stellar versions of them...Eggs are the star...Favorites include the fried egg sandwich...[and] Plow's signature potatoes." Although she has "a few quibbles" with some menu items, "the biggest drawback to Plow is getting seated." [Chron]
In Untz Untz's review of the new Mission branch of Tacolicious, she launches right into the reasons this is more than an overly priced taqueria. "Because the Mission doesn’t have anything like Tacolicious, a full-service operation with a Mexico City-style menu, an adjoining tequila bar, a tailored wine list and lovely desserts." She also enjoys "a delicate Salvadorean tamale" and a nopal taquito at adjacent tequila bar Mosto. All told, Untzy finds a different kind of pleasure than that of a hole-in-the-wall taqueria: "eating and drinking from this urbane menu in an ebullient, happening, restaurant." [Examiner]
Kauffman says the chicken at Roostertail Rotisserie was "as good as the spit-roasted birds from Roli Roti or Goood Frikin Chicken" on two of his four visits. Side dishes (coleslaw, onion strings, chard and brussles sprouts) "are good enough to cover the table with," the counter staff is "ebullient" and the only thing he won't be ordering again are the salads.
