This place has so much charm. At first I was put off by the queue outside, then it intrigued me... boy was this place worth queuing for!! It's not fine dining by any imagination, but it's honest and affordable affair. I really enjoyed our meal and recommend Tads country Fried chicken!!

We had breakfast here twice. Service was great and the food was very good. It's not super trendy which was fine by me since it also didn't require me standing in line to get a seat.

We had lunch here after a morning in the park. It was close to where the cable car line ended, and we were using the cable car to return to our condo. There appeared to be more locals than tourists. Décor was somewhat like an old-fashion diner. You placed your order as you entered, and you picked up your order... More

This is a regular, downtown sort of place, lots of locals more than tourists. I had the BLT which would have been fine except that it was fried. My daughter had pancakes which were okay. Pies looked stale, was not impressed

Chicken dinner was great and best priced meal we had in San Francisco. Nothing fancy about this place just good home cooking.

This was our first breakfast of our vacation and was very enjoyable. Service was quick, breakfast was tasty and filling, good value for money. Not too busy when we arrived but got very busy after. We had a full breakfast with toast, had a choice of meats and eggs, some had sausage, some bacon, both were very good.

The concept of this place is great , it's fast food steak in effect . It's no frills and only 1 type of steak but what they have is delicious. Comes with a baked potato and a salad and the steak is huge . I added on mushrooms and a soda and it came to a very reasonable $25 !... More

Decent steaks, fab baked potatoes and a slab of garlic bread thrown in!! Steak meal is about $18 now - price hike like everything else in SF - but very worth it. Treat yourself and get some fried onions and mushrooms on top!! Half-chicken from the rotisserie comes with baked potato and garlic bread too and is only about $13.... More
