    The pastrami was amazing. Apple pie was just ok (not a fan of cold pie)

    Hugh restaurant, so great for groups. So many options and sides, so everyone can have their sandwiches the way they like.

  • Mark H.

    Specials are always good. Also, brisket, lasagna, buffalo chili, and also ways get the three bean salad.

    Cheap beer, good food, open late— I love everything about this place except for the poster of guy fieri that stares down upon you at the bar

  • Conor D.

    I got very sick after eating here. There's a reason it's so cheap.

    Conor Donegan · May 29
  • Kirk H.

    Everything's great here, but I'm partial to the corned beef. Everything is sliced right in front of you and bread is always fresh. Don't miss the big barrel of dill pickle chips past the register!

    7x7 magazine recommends the brisket

    This is an great place. Def not your everyday. The portions are huge, the prices are low, and the food is great. The hard part is deciding what to have.

    Hungry? On Geary street? Check this joint out and get the BBQ brisket. Good portions, huge beer selection and bring cash because they don't take credit cards.

    Cafeteria-style meat and veg (although the latter is questionable). Cheap and tasty.

    Amazing food for a good price and a fast line. U gotta love that.

    It’s inexpensive, it’s good and it serves both the famous and not-so-famous; and it’s open nearly as late as area bars so it’s a great place for an after-midnight pig-out. Read more

    BBQ brisket is all you need. Well, and some mashed potatoes and beans on your dinner plate, of course.

    This large, wholly unpretentious family-owned spot is cluttered with fascinating bar junk, pours an impressive array of beers and serves meals from its cafeteria-style buffet. Read more

    The stick-to-your-ribs hofbrau fare, like hand-carved sandwiches piled high with your choice of meat or classic buffalo stew, make for a perfect pairing with a cold Anchor Steam. Read more

  • George G.

    Don't kid yourself, get the brisket - either a meal or sandwich. Get extra BBQ sauce if ordering to go. Cucumber/tomato salad is key. Baked potatoes and the most filling stuffing you've ever had.

    George Gayl · July 10, 2014
  • M N.

    Go somewhere else if you want a fresh hot sandwich.

    M Nans · June 15, 2014

    The brisket of beef is outstanding and pretty reasonable. You don't leave this place hungry

    John Hronowski · June 9, 2014
  • Hana N.

    Note to self: corn beef > pastrami. Pastrami is way too salty.

    Hana Na · March 21, 2014
  • Candace B.

    Best and cheapest place to get drinks. :)

    Great beer selection and one of the few places around that serves pitchers. Also a nice turn around on seasonal beers #BeerSF

    Don't miss the daily specials. Thu is braised lamb which is made in premises and very good.
