10. Doc's Clock
This edge of the Mission district has its share of flashy signs, but none top the irony of Doc's Clock': flashy on the outside, dive-y on the inside.
9. House of Prime Rib
One classy sign of San Francisco that actually reflects the same level of classy on the inside of this fine establishment.
8. Tommy's Joynt
We're not sure what's more iconic, the mouth-watering scent of their slow-cooked meats from block away, or the groovy font and flowing flags hovering above this destination BBQ joint.
7. "Today is the first day of the rest of your life"
Sure, the intersection of Haight and Ashbury is legendary and probably the most photographed street sign in San Francisco. But many tourists and locals overlook this humble wooden sign at Central and Waller Streets allegedly left behind by the Diggers community activists of the 60s. It encapsulates the ideologies of San Francisco then and now.
