Not sure why there always seems to be line out the door here, except that people usually get in line where there is a line. I had a veggie burrito... typical beans rice salsa, not worth standing in line for. Maybe this is a place...More

Gordon's is an institution. Lines out the door at lunch and dinner. Why I don't know. If the food is mediocre does it make a difference that there's a lot of it? Have never understood the appeal. Uncomfortable seats, an indifferent if not surly attitude,...More

I have been eating at the various Gordon's around the bay area for over 18 years. The one on Solano is pretty good. I visited this past Sunday night, at 6:30, and they had one guy working the line. It took half an hour to...More
