If you’re looking for Southern hospitality in the Mission, look no further than The Front Porch, a funky little restaurant with rocking chairs outside, a tin ceiling inside and a sign that advises patrons to “be nice or leave." It also just so happens that they serve some of the best fried chicken in SF. The only bummer is that you’ll have to visit during brunch if you want those three pieces of flavorful chicken with perfectly crunchy skin to arrive atop a cornmeal waffle with bacon bits baked inside. During dinner, the chicken is only available by the platter or the bucket with nary a waffle in sight. Life is hard like that sometimes.
