Stopped in on a slow weekday evening. Kind of late and new bartender was in training. Burger was good. Mac n cheese was ok - I prefer a little baked on breading. Cool spot with lots of 49er memorabilia and great tunes.

Bruno's has good food and the portions are generous. They specialize in BBQ but they also have good salads. Nice place to eat before or after a movie at AMC theaters nearby.

Don't expect too much from the food, burgers and ribs were just fine! Waiting time for food was not long, then again it was not busy either.

We did take out for a family dinner. Ordered a rack of baby back ribs, a rack of beef ribs with sides of grilled veggies (cost extra), baked beans and garlic bread. You have to ask for dry ribs since the regular BBQ sauce contains...More

They moved from the Safeway area so they aren't as busy and the food took a bit of a hit when they moved, but they are pretty good. Service is fine and fairly fast. Good place for take out too. Good side dishes and darn...More
