This is the softest, yummy French Dip that I ever had. It's a good size, no scrimping on the meat here. The fries were good too. My friends all love their choice of the French Dip, Rotisserie Chicken and BBQ Salmon with a glass of wine respectively . We were so full at the end that we decided that we... More

It used to be Bandera, but a back room deal to be open at lunch required a name change. It's a happening place built around spit roasted chicken and french dip sandwiches. Tends to be crowded and loud, but food is consistently good and the service is very good...you won't be lingering for hours. You can bring 1 bottle of... More

Maybe it's a great place for a drink after work but it was not worth the time or money to try to have dinner there. I think the food was good but I could barely taste it because my sense of taste was overcome by the loud noise bombarding my sense of hearing. Sorry, folks. I'd pass on this one.

The food was very good. My friend, who had been here many times before, ordered the corn bread. I didn't like it as much as he does, but it was better than average - apparently it's famous. I had the chicken and rib platter, which I enjoyed and wold recommend. I can't recall what my friend had. The service was... More

We have ordered food to be taken out at least a dozen times over the past year. The food is excellent! It transports well and one can count on the consistency of the quality and quantity of food. Highly recommend!

An amazing place to each with the family. The French dip was to die for. Please try the thai steak noodle salad, what a great plate. The sauce was perfectly seasoned a little spicy but well balanced Definitely coming back

We haven't been here for a few years. The restaurant we wanted to check out for our date night was closed, so we decided to visit our old favorite. It is still busy as ever. The crowd is still older & glitzy. Menu changed quite a bit, more veggie & fusion food. Prices went up by 25% since I was... More

I stopped in for dinner and drinks with a friend and we waited 90min for dinner as usual but then after eating we ordered a drink while at the table and the manager came over and asked that we give up our table and move to the bar. We moved to the bar but there wasn't a single place to... More

This was my first visit so I read several reviews ahead of time. Many reviews mentioned their Prime Rib French Dip with one reviewer saying it was the best they ever had. I immediately knew what I was going to order. Dips are pretty basic, just meat, au jus and bun. All three parts have to be outstanding to produce... More

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Los Altos. Be prepared for a long wait, especially on the weekend. We really like this restaurant, the food is good and the service is generally great. It is somewhat of an interesting mix of adults at the bar and families having dinner, but it seems to work.
