Boogaloos is a breakfast and lunch restaurant located at 3296 22nd St San Francisco. The restaurant opened in 1994 and has been a popular spot for people who like to have Southwestern-style breakfast, lunch, or brunch. Boogaloos is most famous for its herb-cream gravy topped biscuits and lemon cornmeal pancakes. Since the restaurant opened in 1994, it has become a meeting place famous for serving large dishes of fresh food at breakfast and lunch, displaying local wall arts on its wall, and playing local bands on its music system.
It is the spot where old college roomies catch up over sangria pitchers and where parents take their children to have pancakes decorated with whipped cream smiley faces. It is no surprise that people line up on the weekends waiting for tables as they socialize on the sidewalk outside the restaurant. Faithful diners frequent the joint, meaning that the wait is worth it. Boogaloos provides a casual, laid back, and inviting atmosphere that’s ideal for families and friends. Some of the creative food choices include a Fresh Fruit Plate, Biscuits and Gravy, Burrito Desayuno, Temple O’ Spuds, and Huevo rancheros. When dining at Boogaloos, remember to ask for any available weekend specials and leave room for the flan dessert, which is homemade. The Boogaloos restaurant is open from 8 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon. Due to COVID-19, the restaurant has temporarily stopped its dine-in service but is offering a takeaway service.
On the early hours of Monday morning, March 7, 2016, Boogaloo restaurant experienced a one-alarm fire. The brief blaze is reported to have originated from the office space on top of the restaurant. One room on the office space and everything in it was damaged extensively. The fire was put out in 30 minutes by the fire department, and there were no casualties reported. Most of the damage was on the region of the ceiling along Valencia Street. Although the blaze did not spread to the restaurant area, it did result in water damage to Boogaloo. By Monday morning, all the burned office rubble had been removed from the building.
On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, over two years after the fire broke out, Boogaloos returned to 3296 22nd Street. The popular breakfast and lunch’s restaurant’s return was anything but guaranteed. Even before the fire broke out in 2016, the rent had been raised to $17,500, which was an astronomical price to pay.
