Party Earth Giordano Bros. Review

The Scene

Giordano Bros. in San Francisco’s Mission is the sports bar for Pittsburgh-style sandwiches & Steelers. Grab a big bite & yell at the TV in SF with Party Earth.

Steelers fans, sandwich seekers, and budget-minded boozers all find something to love at Giordano Bros., a longstanding favorite over in North Beach that opened its Mission location – a part of town not exactly known for sports bars – back in late 2011.

The split venue consists of a bar area to one side where yuppies and local suits looking for an after-work Happy Hour can grab a pull from one of twenty-four drafts, and several flat-screens across the open floor where everyone from lost frat boys to blue-collar Joes can catch the game.

As in the original, a selection of authentic Pittsburgh nosh is a major selling point, with a range of big All-In-One sandwiches lathered in meat on the menu, all of which ring in at around $7.

The décor is very All American, which might seem out of place in the hipster-heavy Mission, with lots of deer, squirrel, and jackalope heads mounted on the walls alongside retro, hand-painted advertisements and beer signs.

Pittsburgh football fans find a welcome home here, though when there’s no game, the college-heavy weekend party crowd turns its attention to shuffleboard, margaritas, and catching someone’s tipsy eye across the bar.

Quaint, casual, and about as unpretentious as a bar can get, Giordano Bros. is the kind of sports hang even the sports-phobic will be fans of.

Tip from Lucas:

Although Giordano is a Pittsburgh bar through and through, don’t come here looking to catch a Pirates game. As the owner once said when asked if he’d show the games, ‘Tell them to have a winning season and we’ll consider it.’ Ouch.

  • Crowd

    Frat boys, college kids, blue-collar blokes, yuppies, old Mission geezers, businessmen, and Steelers fans, 20s to 50+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    American pop and rock on the stereo.

    Several flat-screens tuned to sports.

    Shuffleboard table.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Classic Pittsburgh All-In-One sandwiches, all served with fries, all pretty good candidates for inducing a coronary.

    Happy Hour M–Tu 5–7pm, W–F 3–7pm.

  • Prices

    Sides $2.50–$13.50, sandwiches $6.50–$7. Beer $4–$6/glass or $16–$20/pitcher, wine $7–$8+/glass or $28–$32+/bottle, cocktails $8–$10.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: jerseys, t-shirts, jeans, shorts, simple dresses, sandals, flip-flops, sneakers.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Anytime a game is on (especially Steelers) or Friday and Saturday nights for a busy crowd of unpretentious revelers scarfing down sandwiches and suds.

  • Close By

    Phoenix Irish Bar (811 Valencia Street) is another popular specimen of that rare breed of Mission sports bar.

Giordano Bros. User Reviews

Average rating:
Start your night off right with Delicious mouth watering sandwiches representing the Steel City, Great Beer on Tap, and Live Music. In the Heart of North Beach.
Doug L. May 17, 2013
The original Giordano Brothers is located in the heart of North Beach at 303 Columbus Ave. It's a great way to fill your belly with a scrumptious sandwich, before you party your way through North Beach. It's also one of the few sports bars to be found in North Beach, but get there early for the big game to claim a good spot. Giordano Brothers does not sell liquor but they do have awesome beer on tap, as well as wine. If you love sandwiches with traditional deli meets I suggest the Coppa. A cured Italian ham than tastes like Bacon. I also suggest the capicola, a spicy cooked Italian ham. If you are a Pittsburgh transplant you will feel right at home. If you just love sandwiches, great beer, and a good spot to catch a game then come on down to Giordano brothers. The service is super friendly, and did I mention Live Music at night.
Sports Bar Oasis in the Inner Mission
Alec M. Apr 18, 2013
Located at the intersection of 16th and Valencia, Giordano Bro's is one of the few honest to god sports bars in the Valencia corridor, which is a refreshing change of pace. Inside it's fairly spacious, with a decent number of tables that can hold larger parties, and a long bar with seating. The well drinks, fairly priced and reasonably strong, are nothing to sneeze at and they have a good selection of beers on tap. They also carry Magner's, an Irish cider, which is always an easy way for a bar to gain points in my books. The guys who run Giordano's are from Pittsburgh, and this apparently influences their sandwiches, which dominate their food menu. Each features thick cut white bread encasing lightly dress slaw, crisp french fries, and the meat of your choice, with most setting you back about $7. They also do pretty good wings, a bit more saucy then the usual. Giordano's is a good place to catch a game, eat some good grub and enjoy some eats in a relaxed and unpretentious environment. Also, on a side note, Giordano's is home to the SF chapter of the American Outlaws, a group of the United State's national soccer team's supporters. So, if you've had a hard time finding a place that shows the USMNT, this is one of the better ones in the city.
Great venue to watch sports with good eats!
Trista R. Apr 3, 2013
They will always have Pittsburgh sports on first, but if there is a specific game you want to watch and a TV available they will gladly try to find the game for you. The food is great! Fried pickles, pierogies, and a sandwich you can't get enough of!
