    Seriously: get the hot dog from the kids menu!! It's huge, house made, comes with house made sauerkraut, and is probably the best dog of all time.

    I agree with Jeff: best meat counter, not just East Bay; more like the three north counties! Not in agreement at all with Juan!

    Do not order the Steak Frites. You will regret it if you do. Worst beef in the area.
