We both ordered the 1/2 lb. burger, medium rare. Took about 30 min. before the burgers arrived (and there were less than 10 customers there at the time). Sadly, my burger was medium WELL and my friends was WELL (i.e. not a hint of pink). Ordered with cheese and caramelized onions. Onions had no golden (or any other color) color... More

Food is good. I love the idea of an open kitchen so you can see what the chef does to your food. I had breakfast twice there and dinner once. Menu is simple, entree is separate from the sides. But it was just really strange when I think it was the chef who pass by and asked me if I... More

This place was amazing! They had homemade everything! I loved the ketchup and whip cream! The bread pudding was the best I have ever tried and the burgers were huge and delicious!

Our boss brought us here. We arrived just in time for dinner. I don't think I've been more happy about a meal. The people that work there are so inviting even the people sitting at the bar you could tell were part of that family. Thank you. Ps save room for dessert. The best bread pudding in all the land!

The Naglee Park Garage started life as a little neighborhood bistro in what used to actually be a car repair shop and in a somewhat uppity neighborhood next to San Jose State. That was about ten years ago and while it was a place catering to the neighborhood it worked very well. Then it was featured on a TV food... More

had a great meal at the Garage. Loved the food and the experience. Had the mac & cheese, salads, burgers, bread pudding. everything we had was top notch. I loved the whole experience. Walk into the Garage, order, pay and walk out to an outside seating area. I would go back in a heartbeat! really reasonable for California.

We enjoyed our meal. The owner was helpful and attentive. It is a well run restaurant. Great pork chops and bread pudding. They have steak fires and spicy ketchup.

We had some really good food here and it was a cool place to see. Really good burger, tri-tip steak sandwich, and bread pudding that were all quite tasty. The servers were all very nice, friendly, and quite helpful.

The spinach omelette was done just right and served w/ a variety of fruit. Others also had great looking breakfasts -- two had the bread pudding. I'm looking forward to the next trip to San Jose.
