I had a difficult time eating here. I don't eat beef or pork and try my best to avoid too many carbs. There were poultry pasta dishes and friend choices. I ended up just having a small garden salad, but had to send it back because they put tomatoes on it even though I specifically told the waitress of my... More

Tired and hungry, we discovered the Trolly diner. Had a fine dinner there and would have liked to return for their special chicken dinner.

Good place to grab a quick supper before heading back to San Jose. We had BBQ tri tips and brisket and yummy side dishes.

This is where the locals eat artichokes. We loved the artichoke pasta -- fettuccine was creamy and delicious -- and fire-roasted artichokes. Terrific and inexpensive meal.

I does not look like much on the outside. The interior of the 1940's trolley car is a bit worn. Still, it was neat eating lunch in a piece of history. The Calamari Sandwich was excellent and a decent price. Service was friendly and quick. We picked it because of the Tripadvisor ratings. Glad we listened to them.

We had the calamari and the brisket sandwiches. Both were superb. The calamari was tender and fresh, piled high on a very good roll. The brisket was equally delicious and served with a delightful and well-balanced sauce. Charming service. All in all a fine lunch.

My husband proclaimed his steak sandwich as the best he'd ever had. My chicken was moist and flavorful. The homemade chocolate bread pudding was delicious. Service was friendly and quick.

We went to this restaurant for lunch. Ordered deep fried baby arttchokes for $6.99, tri-tip sandwiches with caramelized onion on very toasted sandwich bread with minimal bbq sauce. I ordered salad for my side and my husband ordered mac and cheese. Totally blown away by the taste of of nicely seared but medium trip tip. Excellent taste. I expected some... More

I ordered tri tip sandwich and it was so, so good. I also had their chocolate pudding for my dessert and it was fresh and piping hot with ice cream it is to die for. The price was really reasonable.
