    Mac and cheese is pretty good (favorite in the city is absinthe though). Deviled eggs are great
  • Bikash M.
    Excellent fried chicken and meatloaf, but the surprising winner was the chorizo stuffed grilled octopus! Excellent service and ambience.

    Everything we ordered was delicious. Seasonal menu, but when we went they had butterscotch pudding- one of the best desserts I've ever had.

    Cost little spot that is beer and wine only. If you're looking for some fried chicken & meatloaf this is a great place to get it. The lamb spam was a really interesting surprise.

    The state of California has a bunch of serious contenders, but the macaroni and drunken Spanish goat cheese at this San Francisco spot is tangy, bubbly perfection. Read more

    A little overpriced for what it is. The meatloaf is good, but I found the sole a little boring.

    We used to love this place but either we got tired of it or the quality has decreased a little in recent years. Homestyle American cooking

    Appetizer: The farro (larger couscous-like grain) with slow egg and crostini is a savory delight. Great for one (if filling). Might request more crostini when sharing.
