SF Weekly's Description

What you must know: they pour heavy. The margaritas are potent, poured into a pint glass with more than three-fourths real agave tequila. Braving your way through the first sips, you look up at the sign above the entrance that reads "sin" in red, lit-up letters behind chicken wire. The sign outside is a bit misleading: reclaimed found art, it sat in the basement of the Latin American Club owner's house until he opened up shop more than 17 years ago. But there is no salsa, no samba, no rumba, no cha-cha-cha. There are, however, piƱatas - plenty of them, buoying overhead like parade floats. Salvaging trashed items, the owner has decorated the bar in the wacky and the tacky thrift-store tchotchkes and junkyard scraps, spattered about like flotsam. Above the till, a plate memorializing a regular, "The Red Man," perches. With his red suit, John Waters mustache, fedora, and crazy-eyed gawk, he seems to watch over the checkered floors.

  • David K. on 05/20/09

    Best (i.e. strongest) margaritas in town.

  • Chris Z. on 03/10/09

    drink 3 margaritas in one night and then not remember a thing after that.

  • Amritha P. on 01/23/11

    If u actually want to die from alcohol poisoning. Drink an entire margarita. Not recommended for anyone under 200 lbs

  • ryan k. on 08/15/11

    Avoid the margaritas, unless you're trying to avoid something.

    The margs are trouble. Don't say I didn't warn you.
