Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem

drteeth-front
Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem (or just Teeth if you’re Googling) is a bar in the Mission at 19th and Mission. In case that name sounds familiar, that’s because it was named after a famed Muppet band. It’s got a fantastic back patio that’s quite good-sized and is great on a sunny day. There’s cornhole sets outside and a shuffleboard table inside.
The Bottomless
$16, no time limit. Just regular old-fashioned OJ mimosas, and no carafes. Still, the champagne/OJ ratio was good and the refills came quickly.
They also have Bloody Marys by the pitcher (which are pricey) and a few other reasonably priced cocktails – Irish coffee, michelada and a mendota (beer and grapefruit juice – it’s actually pretty good).
The Food
The wings were great – we got the buffalo and BBQ, and the buffalo ones had just the right amount of kick. We also shared some breakfast totchos (tater tot nachos), which were smothered in cheese, meat and the usual nacho accouterments, and I got the breakfast burrito, which was decent sized and well done.
Nobody was willing to order the jelly donut fried chicken sandwich, a fact I remain disappointed about to this day. If you’ve tried one, please tell me how it was.Β 
The Service
Great – the waitress was attentive and made some good food suggestions, and she was happy to bring things out over a few courses so we could meander and play cornhole and shuffleboard while we made the most of the bottomless. Speaking of bottomless, my glass never went empty, so a big thumbs up from me.
Overall
If you’re in the Mission and it’s a nice day, go sit on the patio, order some totchos, play a little shuffleboard and have a nice leisurely brunch here.

Mission Rock Resort

[Update July 15, 2017: Mission Rock Resort no longer has bottomless mimosas. My heart breaks. One 🍾 has been deducted from its rating.]​​​​​​​

If you wake up and discover that it’s one of those ever-elusive warm, sunny San Francisco Saturdays, get in an Uber and head straight to Mission Rock Resort. It’s in Mission Bay and has a huge wooden deck overlooking the water – there are no better brunch views in the city (except possibly Top of the Mark).

The Bottomless

$20 for regular mimosas by the carafe. No time limit, though they did eventually ask us to vacate our table and continue drinking downstairs (which was still in the sun and on the water, so no complaints there).

Mission Rock Resort does not have bottomless brunch. The world is a cruel, dark place.

The Food

Some of the best brunch fare you’ll find, with both traditional options and a lot of seafood. If you’re going to come, I recommend going big – we got the aptly named Grand Shellfish Plateau, which is an impressive display of prawns, ceviche, oysters, mussles and all manner of other things. It’s a great starter if you’ve got a big group (or alternatively there’s a Petite Shellfish Plateau, but who wants to order the petite one?).

For your meal, there were a few standouts among our orders:

  • The Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich – The biggest breakfast sandwich you’ve ever seen. Outside of its size, pretty much what you’d expect from this dish, executed well.
  • NY Steak and Eggs – The only real question with steak and eggs for brunch is whether they use a good cut of steak, and here they do.
  • Crispy Pork Schnitzel and Eggs – The pork is indeed crispy, the eggs are beautiful and you should order this.

The Service

Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive with the mimosas. She did ask us to vacate our table after something like two and a half hours, but she was pleasant about it and told us we could keep getting carafes of mimosas from the bar and drink them on their downstairs deck, which is otherwise unoccupied during brunch.

That was totally reasonable, but the bartender was having none of it and pretty rudely told us that she had no idea if we’d ordered bottomless so she wasn’t going to give us anything. We found our waitress who went to the bar and told the bartender to keep filling us up, so all was well after that.

Overall

The food is great and the mimosas kept flowing nicely, but the real reason to come here is the view. Try to get a table on the edge of the deck overlooking the water and keep your eyes peeled for seals.
