Restaurant Name City
Great Eastern Restaurant San Francisco, CA
Off the mediocre tourista Mecca of Grant Street, Great Eastern was recommended by a Chinese waiter at the (defunct) New Joe's. He said it was frequented by Chinese locals and sure enough, I was the only non-Chinese! Little if any English spoken, I still managed to get what I wanted. Great Eastern specializes in seafood and they do very well. Whole fish is popular as well as various seafood soups. A notch way above the tourist restaurants in Chinatown.
Indian Oven Restaurant San Francisco, CA
Best Indian food in SF. If you like your vindaloo nuclear, let them know not to hold back or they will pedestrianize it. Fabulous tandoori items. Go for the mixed tandoori appetiser. Friendly and competent waitstaff. Take a taxi, parking non-existant.
John's Grill San Francisco, CA
If you go for the experience, fine. Food not special. It's difficult to screw up steak! If you go for a steak, you're better entertained at Original Joe's.
Lichee Garden Restaurant San Francisco, CA
Go fo the dim sum. If you don't read or speak Chinese you won't be able to order off the menu. With the dim sum you can just point, smile, and nod! Considerably better than the tourist places on Grant Street.
McCormick & Kuleto's Restaurant San Francisco, CA
I would not consider returning to this restaurant unless I was by myself and had good earplugs with me. I'd tell you about the food but you wouldn't be able to hear me!
Neptune's Palace San Francisco, CA
Being on Pier 39 one might expect this to be tourista and there are tourists, but this is an exception. Some of the best seafood in SF with a great view to match. Some of the best chowder in the city (Original Joe's not withstanding). Expensive but not overpriced considering.
New Delhi Restaurant San Francisco, CA
Not the best Indian food in SF, but perhaps the most unique setting! Bar in front has juke box that is easily heard from the dining room. Nothing like eating Vindaloo while you're listening to the Doors sing Light My Fire! Decent food and colorful menu. Good tandoori.
Original Joe's Italian Restaurant San Francisco, CA
If this wasn't "original" it could well be retro! Booth seating with food counter. Sit at the counter and marvel at the chefs preparing the dishes. Great sourdough bread starts things off (duh!) Admirable Italian food but the steaks are a surprise! Excellent beef and grilled to perfection. Some of the best clam chowder in the country. Caesar salad can be counted on for crisp cold greens and pungent dressing. The Joe's hamburger is not to be believed! Fork up the extra $1.25 to have it charbroiled. Only fault, it's in a BAD area of town. Take a cab!
Pine Crest Restaurant San Francisco, CA
If you?re staying in the vicinity of Union Square, this is a fun place to have breakfast. Sit at the counter and watch the cooks and waitresses do their thing! Watch 20 pounds of hash browns go on the grill. How do they keep those over easy eggs from sticking on that no non-stick grill? Coffee?s hot and food?s cheap and in San Francisco, the latter makes Pinecrest a real find!
Antares Atop Reunion Tower Dallas, TX
Well prepared (although generally overpriced) American food presented with flare and good service. Most however, go for the view and the revolving aspects. If that?s the case, one is better off going to the Nana Grill. You?ll get a more exciting menu and a better view.
Bobo China Restaurants Dallas, TX
Throwback to the 40?s for Chinese food. Reminiscent of one of the myriad of tourist Chinese restaurants on Grant Street in Chinatown San Francisco. Plastic renditions of the various dishes in the display case amusing. Once one of the premier Chinese restaurants in the Dallas area, Bobo is victim of a time warp syndrome. Chinese restaurants are now prolific in the DFW area, and Bobo has not kept up with the times.
Bone Daddys Dallas, TX
Typical ?canned? restaurant with theme, a bar that makes up a high percentage of the revenue, a fairly successful attempt at satisfying food with some standouts, but most of all, NOISE! Spend one hour here, and you?ll have a horse voice from trying to be heard, and ringing ears. Decent barbeque and above average ?bar food? items such as onion rings and jalapeno poppers.
Breadwinners Cafe & Bakery Dallas, TX
Women?s comfort food. Pastas, petite sandwiches, and salads make up the majority of this menu that could practically be called ?health food?. Good service. Popular with the McKinney Ave. mid to high-rise crowds. Crowded for lunch weekends.
Burger House Dallas, TX
Second expansion attempt by Snyder Plaza stalwart. Food similar to the Hillcrest original, but more of a ?fast-food? feel. Same quality thin burgers and famous ?secret? fries (Cavenders Seasoning). Light years ahead of McDonald?s or Burger King!
Chip's Old Fashioned Hamburgers Dallas, TX
One of Dallas' better burger bets. Especially if you're using McDonald's, Burger King, Jack In the Box, or Wendy's as benchmarks. Excellent onion rings.
City Cafe To Go Dallas, TX
Best take out food in Dallas (sorry Eatzi's & Marty's). Don't expect burgers, pizza or a bucket of chicken. This is top notch seafood, pastas, and other entrees done with a European flare.
Gazebo Burgers Dallas, TX
Nice turn at the bare burger fix it up yourself theme. Thick juicy burgers. Above average fries and onion rings. Beware the hoards of rugrats!
Gennie's Bishop Grill Dallas, TX
Famous for years. Frequented by everyone from panhandlers to highest and the mightiest of white collar. The epitome of home cooking in Dallas. Famous homemade pies and know throughout the universe for their chicken fried steak. Reviewed on Best Of on the Food TV Network.
Jgs Hamburgers Dallas, TX
Good bet for the bare burger fix it up yourself crowd. Don't tell anyone though, the burgers next door at Highpoint are better, and there's a better selection of food!
Kathleen's Art Cafe Dallas, TX
I didn't get past the plastic Caesar salad. Kraft makes better dressing in a bottle! Terrible service.
