"Some Good Gems"

While 17th Street itself may not be the most exciting street in all of the Mission, there are some good spots around here. The Rite Spot Cafe, located a short walk away from Mission Cliffs Climbing Gym, has cheap beers, decent bar food, and a friendly, comfortable dive bar atmosphere. Franklin Square, located directly north at the Bryant Street intersection, offers the only patch of green for several blocks in any direction (standard of most urban areas, but an oddity in this city). And Vista Point Studios offers photographs of landscapes so stunning that you will easily forget you are in San Francisco (at least until your eyes land on the equally stunning cityscapes and panoramas of the Golden Gate Bridge).

This is not necessarily the most aesthetically pleasing street in the city, and it may feel a little sketchy to walk down alone at night. Parking, like much of the Mission, can be a chore. And all you need is one large event in the neighborhood to slow traffic down to a screeching halt. But overall, there are some cool spots and good places to see.
Pros
  • Good dive bars

"Not too much to do on this street, but one excellent restaurant."

17th street stretches far across san francicso, but for all the distance there is very little to do. It does pass by the beautiful Franklin Square, but there is only one place worth visiting on it. This place is The Maverick Restaurant. This place is small and tidy, and serves excellent but simple food. The service is great, but the neiborhood isn't the greatest, as I have passed by some people that look pretty suspicious. If you are ever on 17th street, I recommend that you visit the Maverick restaurant, but otherwise just pass it by.
