Adamson's the name that should be associated with French Dip

I like eating food. Wait, I like eating good food. No, I like eating great food. Ask any local if they want to go to Adamson's, 11-times-out-of-10 they will say yes. If they say no, then they are not from around her. If you feel like the best French Dip you will ever have, look no further. Why are... read more

I was driving by and saw this restaurant and it looked cute and sounded delicious, so I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did. It was delicious!! The signature Prime Rib French Dip is outstanding and just melts in your mouth. The onion rings and Root Beer were wonderful also. I can't wait to go back.

This is a great spot for a relaxed lunch away from the office. It was casual Friday. Most people were in jeans and tee shirts. Go before 1130AM or after 1230PM to avoid a long wait. There is plenty of parking is the strip mall. The place filed quickly with tech workers. Grab a table in the small air-conditioned space... More

They have a very small menu but what they do make, they do very well. The prime rib french dip was excellent and the au jus was just right - not over seasoned and it did not overpower the flavor of the beef. The seasoned fries are also very good. They have their own brand of root beer and it,... More

Walked in at 640p and it was closed. Really? Returned the next day for lunch and was not impressed with the food prep. Too smokey for my taste.

This place can be easily missed if you are searching for something to eat in Sunnyvale. I am so glad I found it the food is absolutely amazing. I like a French dip from time to time but have never found a really good. Adamson's proves it can be done, the meat is top quality with different options to choose... More

You will be comfortable putting their french dip sandwich in your pantheon of godly creations. That's all I had. My monkey brain said "Oh my God this really really great". I only give it four stars because all I had was the sandwich and I don't want to be presumptive about what I did not experience - nonetheless if everything... More

Really good sandwiches, awesome fries and onion rings. Prices are good for the quality and size you receive.

This is a tiny French Dip joint, with a wood fired oven that produces the most wonderful Prime Rib. The Jus is great, but the prime rib steals the show, if you are in the area, go, but be prepared to wait in line, quality cannot be rushed.
