Asqew Grill has a reputation on Haight street for being the best value dinner in the whole neighborhood. Everything they do there is grilled fresh on skewers and you can get a hugely filling dinner for under $7. That is unheard of in San Francisco. The scallops on Caesar salad are fantastic, as is the Ahi tuna just seared. You gotta check this place out.

Let's get this out of the way: Asqew is great. It simply is. In a hugely expensive city, it's really hard to find a big, satisfying, and really tasty meal for under $10. At Asqew, you're looking at under $6. And they have anything you want: beef, chicken, pork, veggies, seafood, ANYTHING deliciously freshly grilled. Also be sure to try some of their appetizers, like the grilled asparagus and grilled artichoke. The grilled banana split is pretty great too. Enjoy with a pitcher of Pabst from their tap, and you got a great night for cheap!

Is there anywhere better than Asqew? It's cheap, it's easy, it's healthy, and I could drink their soy beurre blanc sauce by the gallon. I think it's wonderful that it's popping up all over as a chain, even though none of them seem to be

I like most of the sauces and the fish skewers are really good. The chicken is very tender, but the lamb and and beef are too tough and chewy. Mashed potatoes are good, salads are weak. All in all a good spot for under $10. Staff is
