Amazing French dip

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... read 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.

Drove by craving a cheesesteak when I came upon Adamson's French Dip. What a great sandwich. I love French dips and this is the best. They have Prime Rib dip and Sirloin dips.tri-tip too! You can add cheese, onion, mushrooms, jalapeños. I can't stress enough how soft and wonderful this sandwich is. They also have beer, draft root beer, shakes... More

They have good french dip sandwiches here. The roast beef is of high quality. The place is small but they have both inside and patio seating. You order at the counter; they give you a buzzer; and when your order is ready, you go in and pick up your order. They have soft drinks as well as beer for sell.... More

I go here quite a bit, and the sandwiches are very good. I would give them 4 or even 5 stars if not for 2 things. First, they run out of items on a regular basis. I know it is a small, family run restaurant and they can't make/stock everything, but I have been here at least 8 times when... More

This little place appears cute from the street and since my husband likes French Dips we tried it. I RARELY eat red meat but, no fooling, this is the best beef I have had in years. You have a choice of sirloin or prime rib so we chose prime rib. It is extremely tender, very tasty and absolutely no fat,... More
