As of 10 a.m. this morning, Wednesday April 18th, a Mission District breakfast and lunch institution returns to its rightful place at 3296 22nd Street (at Valencia Street). Hallelujah, because Boogaloos is back.
The dedicated breakfast and lunch restaurant’s comeback, and it’s safe to call it just that, was anything but guaranteed, with its rent jacked sky-high even before its space in an elegant former drugstore was damaged by a 2016 fire that’s essentially shut the doors for two years.
In the interim, the building’s property manager relented on the rent, allowing for Boogaloos triumphant return. Now, general manager Peter Hood tells Eater SF that Boogaloos is ready to roll, just the same as ever, but maybe with a cleaner interior. “We’ve been here since ‘94,” he says, as if to remind any potential newcomers.
The new menu features old favorites like vegan herb-cream gravy and Boogaloo’s monumental temple o’ spuds, “the Missions best hang-over cure.” Have a look below.
The return of Boogaloos to the Mission is also the end of weekday service at Boogaloos’ temporary pop-up at Parada 22 at 1805 Haight Street. The restaurant will continue its weekend service there, however, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“It’s been a long wait for us and I know it’s felt even longer for some of our old-school Boogaloos regulars,” management wrote in a note posted yesterday on a window of the building. ‘Well, the wait is over.”
Boogaloos hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
