Just went again today .At 10 AM ,the place was almost full ,but we got a booth . We ordered promptly and got our food in about 15 minutes . The food was hot ,delicious ,and cooked exactly how we ordered it .The corn beef hash was very light ,and not at all greasy .I substituted 2 eggs for a cup on fresh fruit . The sourdough toast was hot and buttered -We had no complaints ,except we had to ask twice for water . Can't wait for my next trip ,and about 4 minutes to SFO ,if there is no traffic .

The only thing that was above average here was that we didn't have to wait for a table on a Friday night. Limited menu if your not into Greek style food. Decor was a little to much for the food and service.

Went here on a Saturday afternoon at about 5PM. Half the restaurant was empty. Waited about 10 minutes for a table. A few minutes later the Waitress came over to us and gave us the menu. Asked us if we liked anything to drink pretty promptly. We asked for a few minutes just to settle in. The service from there was rather slow and bad after that. She finally came back and ask what we wanted to drink and then left. She never asked if we wanted a appetizer. It wasn't till she took our dinner order that she asked if we wanted a appetizer. My salad and the appetizer came at the same time. Along with table bread. Way off. Never asked, if we wanted a another drink. The appetizer, we had the Jalepeño Hummus and two over Mediterranean Dips with Olive plate. Pita bread that came with it was warm. Which was good. Not much of a Jalepeño flavor though. The other two had a Citrus flavor. Could not make out the difference between them. Just the color. Overall okay. Plates were not picked up. We had to ask. I asked for a beer. Didn't come until I was half way through my meal. And then, usually the waitress pours the beer into your glass. She didn't. She just dropped it off without even asking if everything was okay. As for food, I had the Petite Steak and my wife had the Thai Beef Salad. Mine came with Mashed Potatoes and Vegetable's. Overall, pretty straight forward. Good, not outstanding. Standard fair at near bye average restaurant. My wife's didn't even look Thai at all. Looked more like pre-packaged cabbage salad with the beef mixed in. Bland according to my wife. Not happy at all with it. No Thai taste at all. She won't order again. Probably, better off trying something else next time. Might be a while. For what it is, if you like average you'll be happy. Maybe it was the service being way off that made the difference. For Food- Fair to Average, Price- Average, Service-Bad, Ambiance-Bar/Grill Tone.

I had just dropped off a rental car and my son and I were looking for a nice breakfast place . Jack's was recently voted the best new restaurant for 2012 , so we figured it would be good . We were seated immediately and given menus . They are open all day until late at night with a full bar ! This is the first time I have asked for well done potatoes and they were ! My omelet was amazing - a vegetarian with sourdough toast . My son had eggs with a medium rare beef patty . The total ,plus coffee , was about 24 . I can't wait to go back . Without traffic ,it was 5 minutes to SFO . NOTE : although Jack's borders El Camino , you access through parking lot to large apt. complex . Jack's is on the south end .
