    The sandwich bread is a little much, get a platter instead. Brisket is mad decent

    Argh cash only! Nothing like hungrily walking 20 min past 2 ATMs and then seeing their sign. They do have a machine, but I was not going to pay the fee to then spend mo money! Will go back for dinner

    Corned beef is this week's trending taste and there is no better place in the Bay Area than Tommy's. Their huge portions are one of the many reasons they are on our list of Best Corned Beef in SF. Read more

    The food was awesome! Great prices especially for the area, most meals under $10! Really good food and awesome bar inside.

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

    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

    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!

    Great place for food. Pastrami, brisket and meatballs. There will be a line, but it moves quickly.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    The sourdough roll is very hard. You might to get a steak knife to slice it.

    Signage for the restrooms = confusing. And had I known where it was located I would of had my pepper spray ready in hand. Never will go to the restroom alone here again.

    Great food served cafeteria style and a bar. Get in line for your food first, find a seat and then order your drinks from the waitress. Awesome. Try the sloppy joe. It's turkey.

    Food is fantastic and reasonably-priced but I don't understand how anyone can eat as much as they give you!!

    $6 for a sandwich. Walked into this place and saw how they cut the meat in front of you. It's was so good and tender, left me in a good coma. Sandwich is just roll/bread with meat. Ask for cheese

    Great sandwiches. Fun, quirky atmosphere. Don't come to judge, come to enjoy.

    $6 Pastrami on sourdough, and a $13 pitcher of whatever's on draft (we recommend the full boar whiskey beer) aka the OG San Francisco treat and a killer date night.

    One of my favorites. There is not one fish here that isn't amazing. The bbq brisket plate is my favorite. Dont pass this place up

    Chimay on tap. Bbq Briscuit is a must. Cole slaw is good, potatoe salad was a little bland

    The corned beef is excellent. This place beats Katz's in nyc for user friendliness alone. yum.

    Friday menu is the best! Sit downstairs near the bar, upstairs is kind of cramp and sketch

    Even as a die hard Lefty's fan, I think that Tommy's has my favorite corned beef sandwich in the city. Also, super convenient to grab a bite before heading to AMC 1000 across the street for a flick.

    Carved Meats are to die for. Turkey Sloppy Joe without BBQ Sauce (For Me) for less than $5 is awesome at this local legend.

    Hot roast beef sandwiches, open faced turkey sandwiches with mashed potatoes and gravy and one of the best sloppy joe's I have ever had in my life.

    The lamb is super tender and falls right off the bone. However, don't get the gravy. The gravy is terrible.

    CASH ONLY! However you don't need a lot of cash, their portions can satisfy even the biggest appetites.

    Get the brisket or roast beef. Stay away from the meatball sandwich - 2 meatballs, sauce & bread. Decent pumpkin pie.

    If you're craving good old comfort food, in big portions & budget friendly prices, this is your kinda place! As long as you're not too picky about the ambiance nor 5-star restaurant typ'a service.

    I was a bit disappointed with the buffalo stew which was supposed to be their specialty. I was also told that I had to order a drink if I was going to sit at a table. However the ambience was unique.

    Order the turkey sloppy joe - get pickles from the barrel - with a pilsner urquell for less that 8 bucks

    Cash only, so be prepared. Also, watch the bartender make any mixed drink you order, since they tend to be more flavoring and less beverage.

    Not a vegetarian? Then this place is for you. Cafeteria style food, but so cheap, so good. And a fantastic selection of beer.

    Get the Kielbasa sandwich and add at least two spoonfuls of the raw horseradish sitting at the table.
