The Mexi-Cali burger was great, flavorful and fresh with a bit of a spicy kick. Also got the lemon pepper wings which were simple but still delicious. Plenty of outdoor seating with TVs and cool decor. Overall a great, chill lunch experience!

Great place with an ever revolving menu that keeps improving and being refined each time. I love the new fish tacos, but the shawarma's have been favorites for a while now. A funky space that's a great addition to the neighborhood, go support your local business and have a great meal at Sideshow. The owners do a great job of keeping things new, it's a lot of fun to visit and you won't be disappointed. Congrats on opening a go to place in the Golden Gate Neighborhood of Oakland.

This is what a cheeseburger should be!🤤 everything was so good! The staff was super awesome as well. The Elote is amazing. The beer on tap is delicious.

One of the best fried chicken sandwiches I have ever had, and the seasoned fries were perfection. They have a great variety of beverages too. We tried the POG cider, kombucha, and half and half iced tea lemonade, all of which were delicious!

Really neat little restaurant with outdoor seating (and a small amount of indoor seating), tasty food, a good beer selection, and some games to play while you're there. My girlfriend and I stopped in for a quick meal after a long day of traveling and I think we will be back again.
