I had a difficult time eating here. I don't eat beef or pork and try my best to avoid too many carbs. There were poultry pasta dishes and friend choices. I ended up just having a small garden salad, but had to send it back...More

Tired and hungry, we discovered the Trolly diner. Had a fine dinner there and would have liked to return for their special chicken dinner.

Good place to grab a quick supper before heading back to San Jose. We had BBQ tri tips and brisket and yummy side dishes.

This is where the locals eat artichokes. We loved the artichoke pasta -- fettuccine was creamy and delicious -- and fire-roasted artichokes. Terrific and inexpensive meal.

We had the calamari and the brisket sandwiches. Both were superb. The calamari was tender and fresh, piled high on a very good roll. The brisket was equally delicious and served with a delightful and well-balanced sauce. Charming service. All in all a fine lunch.

I ordered tri tip sandwich and it was so, so good. I also had their chocolate pudding for my dessert and it was fresh and piping hot with ice cream it is to die for. The price was really reasonable.
