    It's a great place to catch the Super Bowl while snacking on some solid wings. Dine in, pick up, or order out, no matter what you choose Hi Tops does buffalo wings right. Read more

    The only way you’ll be a loser at trivia night is if you leave without getting the wings, which may be some of the best in SF. Tables fill up quick on trivia night, so get there early. Tuesdays, 8pm. Read more

    Hi Tops consulting chef Jamie Lauren's darkly fried version of the fried chicken sandwich with sweet slaw and a soft, eggy brioche bun is a particularly good one. Goes great with a pitcher of beer. Read more

    The food is awesome. The staff has an upbeat attitude which is always refreshing. Clean and well kept. Last but not lease sport it's the first of its kind in San Francisco.

    Order yourself a corn dog and pretzel. They're equally awesome and your tongue will thank me for giving you something to eat their amazing mustard with.

    Head to the gay sports bar Hi Tops after work today for a beer or two. While you're there be sure to order the nachos with sweet and tangy pulled pork. They're some of the best nachos in SF. Read more

    Order food separately at the back bar. Ask for the vegetarian hot dog (a good veggie option not listed in the menu on the board). Enjoy the game and have fun!

    The Castro hangout features a Bloody with bacon-infused vodka, and a bacon garnish, which goes quite nicely with a tray of their Killer Nachos, should you be that hungover any given Sunday. Read more

    The only place in town where LGBT basketball fans can watch the Warriors while also possibly finding a new love interest, Hi Tops remains one of the more popular spots in the Castro. Read more

    The chips here are good, the pulled pork is sweet and tangy, but these nachos are also monstrous enough for a meal for three people even without any meat on them, with generous amounts of toppings. Read more

    Cheap beer, great vibe, tons of energy. Both staff and clientele are so nice. Ahi tuna burger is my favorite thing on the menu.

    Monday nights, sports bar Hi Tops (2247 Market St.) offers a basket of eight wings for $5. The “buffalo wild wings” are fairly spicy, so be sure to dip ‘em in something cool.

    Good drinks, good music, and a generally mellow vibe bring people back, as do special theme nights like trivia on Tuesdays, bingo on Wednesdays, and "Gym Class" on Thursdays. Read more

    Like spicy drinks? Get the "Will the Thrill," it damn near changed my life. Also... The have a SHUFFLEBOARD table. Gay Castro sports bars ftw!

    Panda Colada was literally like a piña colada, very sweet. Big Unit was much more subdued for my tastes. If you're into playing shuffleboard, they have one of those. Don't think NYC bars have one.

    Great place. Think Nellies not Gym Bar or Boxers - this place is a real sports bar that gay folks frequent.

    The burgers here are by far the best in the city. Especially when it's hand deliver by the hot jock staff!! Now time for more beer!

    Are you a gay bro wanting to hang out with and ogle other douchey gay bros? This is your place. Middling cocktails, but the pub grub is pretty good.

    Wednesday night bingo is the best, and there's a pretty good chance you'll win a free shot before the night is over

    "Will the thrill" is a delish, spicy drink. Spicier than you'd think, which is refreshing (and hot!).
