The 8 most delicious tater tot creations in SF

That guy sitting next to Jon Heder in science class said it best: "Napoleon, gimme some of your tots, provided they're one of the eight best in SF according to Thrillist." And because you don't wanna disappoint science class guy like Heder did, here're said eight best...

FiDi
Here, they've introduced truffle-garlic tater tots, and what's more (for now) is they're running a special where if you buy any two specialty drinks, you get a bucket for free. Side note: how are tot buckets not a thing everywhere?

SOMA
Maybe our favorite place to grab wine/beer in a jug, it's also behind these Parmesan and rosemary "Mashed Potater Tots" that come with the choice of bacon jam or cranberry jam... though, really, you should just get both.

The Marina; Lower Pac Heights; The Mission
The guys heading this bar empire sure love their tots, as evidenced by the huge selection of ways you can get 'em: Original, Garlic, Truffle, Sweet Potato, Bacon Bleu (w/ bacon and bleu cheese!), and even "Tot-chos", a tater-nacho combination with melted cheese, jalapeños, black olives, pico de gallo, sour cream, and guac.

Obviously the carnival-themed restaurant that does that donut breakfast sandwich is doing something awesome, and that something-awesome is Sweet Potato Tots that come with blackberry BBQ sauce.
