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

Lovely prime rib french dip sandwich and root beer. Unfortunately closed Sundays. Small place with small outside seating area.

So much better than the large fast food chains. I had the French Dip, Onion Rings and a Root beer. All were excellent!

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

Reasonably priced, limited seating, fast food restaurant atmosphere. But the French dip, fries , and onion rings were all very good. Terrific for a fast meal.

I'm a french dip snob, I love them. For $8.95 I got a pretty good sized beef sandwich with very disapointing fake au jus. Really,, give me good stuff please. I really wanted a root beer but they wanted $3.00 for a mug with $1.00 refills. Not worth the money, I'd go to the cheesesteak place across the parking lot... More

I'm from the Midwest so I've had a lot of great brewed root beer and great meats. Adamson's delivers both for a great price in a very small location (outside seating is nice but hectic in a parking lot). This is a "must try" for lunch if you like smoked BBQ chicken, beef, or pork and the root beer is... More
