For a place in San Francisco this place is great. Their prices are right and my steak was cooked perfectly. My girls enjoyed their dinners and the front sign out front is very cool too. Fast and friendly service and I would definitely go there again.

We were looking for a restaurant not too expensive and for 3 persons plus soft, it was only 32$. Really difficult to do better and it was good! we were rapidly served with quality in our plate. Really to be recommended!

We trudged the streets trying to find somewhere for breakfast near Union square. Not easy to find somewhere if you are a tourist. There's more Prada and LV than eateries. However we came across Tad's and were really pleased. The service was attentive, the prices really reasonable, the food prompt and tasty. If you are going to have breakfast downtown... More

Will never go back again as the food is not that good. Though its quite cheap. But whats the point of paying money for something if u are not satisfied.

Steakhouse - good, we thought we could get some good food. The first thing you do when you go in is order and pay at the register. You are then given a tray with your drinks (and salads if ordered). Find your own seat. When your food is ready, they call your number and you take your tray back up... More

Good location close to Union square. We went two days running for breakfast. Place is seat yourself, no long waits for a table or service. Early bird breakfast available with a small discount. Nice setting, family feel to the place.

Good service..although you have to queue up at the counter to order your food, the staff was polite and efficient. The food was quite good and the portions were generous. Only negative was the bathroom....needed to be cleaned. It was kind of gross in there.

Ate there for breakfast while staying in the city. The breakfast was very good and at a great price. And the entire staff working there are extremely friendly. Each morning the breakfast was great. The place is clean as well.
