I've been going to the Pantry since the 1980's when they were first on El Camino Real. Their new place is bigger and has tons more parking. I get the same thing when I go there, the Truck Stop Special with fries. I've been ordering it for so long that I usually just sit down and a few minutes later it's brought to me along with a bowl of housemade soup. It's a massive hot sandwich that will definitely fill you up. But on the weekends I'll usually have breakfast instead. Breakfasts are also huge and you have to try their hash browns with grilled onions. But what makes them taste so good is the seasoning they sprinkle on top after its put on your plate. Owners and staff are great people.

Family owned and that serves good food for a great value. This place reminds me of the old fashioned stores ( Five and Dime) that used to serve great breakfast/lunch meals that I enjoyed with my mother when out shopping in the mall.

Well worth the stop to eat here !!
