Worth the $$$

I am a big fan of the prime rib dip and the seasoned fries. The bread is soft, rich and buttery. The prime rib is smokey and delicious. For the first time in my life I started drinking the au jus remnants (one of the best parts). The fries are seasoned well and dip well in the au jus too.... read more

Had heard many things about this place, and we have a family of French dip lovers. The meat just wasn't that great both times we ate there. Sorry to say we found it chewy both times.

Great Prime French Dip. Will go back again. Not much seating, but worth the wait. They also offer a nice selection of other menu items.

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 you... 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
