“Excellent for a nice day's walk around”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

Other than the food/the market, the Marina Boulevard and inside Fort Mason are great places to
just walk around (or bike around) - on a sunny day in the city. The view is amazing, the span of the Golden Gate bridge and the sails frame one side of the background. Then you see the Alcatraz. There is always something going on in one of the buildings in Fort Mason. We went to the Vintage poster exhibition, which had a fee. Check the schedule, before planning the trip. We had brunch in Cow Hollow, which is very close by.

“A must for foodies, but go early!”
Reviewed 27 October 2012

A great experience. There were around 20 - 30 trucks each one offering a different cuisine. A must for foodies. Do get there early, we arrived around 9 and most of the food and drink trucks and tents had run out - gutted!

“A great hidden gem...”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

I had head mixed reviews about long lines and waiting times, so we planned to get there early. We arrived 5 minutes before official opening, and it wasn't busy at all. Food was fresh, and there were no lines at any truck. Within an hour, it started to get quite busy though (although still not terribly long lines or waits).

The food was a fairly nice selection of various local food trucks. I brought my appetite, and OtG didn't disappoint.

Prices are reasonable. You'll spend a little more than you might going to to a bar, but they didn't serve tiny portions either.

Overall, highly recommended on a Friday evening at Fort Mason Center if you're into trying different things or sampling street-meat.

“Great food, Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

Our brother and sister-in-law were excited to take us to Off The Grid and what a wonderful experience. There were about 20 food trucks with many different ecclectic choices from Asian, Mexican, Cupcakes, Creme Brulee to American Cuisine, along with breweries and a winery. The food was very reasonable and delicious. All this and great music too as a local band provided ambiance! Literally, there was something for everyone.
