The best prime rib sandwich!

First time here for us. Visiting family who have been and they brought us here. We had the prime rib sandwiches with onion rings and fries. My sand which was fully loaded and awesome!

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

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
