    Lines can be bad at night too. My suggestion is to buy your drinks of choice at a liquor store instead unless they're already closed for the night. I prefer to pay a little more and wait less.

    One of the worse Safeway's in San Jose. The refrigeration is always down. The produce is usually moldy or past it's edible state. The parking lot has become a camp ground for homeless & transients.

    LOVE the self-checkout @ Safeway! It sure makes you wanna run down the street and blow up FoodMaxx for having such SLOW checkout lines, though! LOL!

    i wouldn't come here alone at night if you're someone that "can't hold your own." if you keep to your own business and do not mind the sketchy folks that loiter in the parking, you'll be fine

    Safeway in general is not that great and this location is worse than most. The produce is really low quality, the selection in general skews to the cheaper side of things, & there's always long lines

    Don't come late at night. Line can get quite long after 10:30 or 11:00 PM

    Lines can be ridiculous late at night. Buy your beer or other drinks elsewhere unless nobody else is open..

    BE CAREFUL OF BIKE THIEVES. My bike got stolen right in the middle of a busy Friday, it was locked up to the bike rack. NOBODY even cared enough to say anything

    Avoid the people loitering in and around the parking lot. So many people asking for money or selling stuff. Tamales, anyone?
