My niece recommended this restaurant and I'm glad she did. I was looking for a good salad for takeout. I had the Apple-Goat Cheese salad. It was perfect size and worth every penny.😄

Had a burger on sourdough shaped like the baguette. The bread was great, the burger, not so much. Bought two desserts, don't waste your money on the sweets.

This place has wonderful fresh bread that they bake daily at the location. It makes for the best sandwiches and soup bowls. They are known for their clam chowder, but I go for the salads. The spring salad is wonderful with fresh apples, dried cranberries, nut, feta cheese, and fresh crisp lettuce. The dressing in wonderful too. if you join... More

We like Boudin SF. The San Marcos location can handle the lunch time rush. It may not be the same atmosphere as Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, but come now, we are not in San Francisco but San Marcos, California and this is a very reliable chain operation. The bread, sandwiches, salads and clam chowder are all reliably good. Enough... More

This is a chain I really enjoy, and here in particular the soups. Sandwiches are also good and taking home bread is a must. What really makes it exceptional is the friendly staff.

Had an excellent lunch here. The bread is good, just not that same sourdough in San Francisco. Soup in a bowl and sandwiches are quite good. No sourdough pizzas like in SF but still lgood.

Not good in the slightest. A coworker and I picked up some food and were really bummed when we sat down at the office to eat. The tomato soup was average and that was the only thing saving this review from only earning one star. The grilled cheese I ordered was awful. The bread was super hard and brittle, hard... More

If you love bread as much as we do, you HAVE to go to Boudin's and experience their freshly baked (on site) breads and cookies. This is the real deal. You know that sourdough bread you can only get at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco? Well, this is it - same company, closer location. Their sandwiches and salads are all... More

I love the sourdough and ciabatta breads at Boudin's. If you're a Californian, you know this is the real deal for sourdough. Salads and sandwiches are delicious because of the fresh ingredients and flavorful combinations (try the turkey & havarti sandwich). The patio was updated not long ago and it's even nicer, better sun shade and seems bigger. The decor... More
