Tried Bubba's again last week to see if things have gotten any better in the last year. I found it lacking again. I've been going to Bubba's for 20 years and the "newest" owners just don't put in the effort that the diner needs to...More

We were at our grandson's basketball game in San Rafael. Afterward we were looking for a place to eat. I always use Trip Adviser to look up local restaurants and rely on the reviews to find the best places to eat. Thus how we came...More

Good place for lunch. The food was good and served hot. It's a diner and not a gourmet restaurant. As a diner, it is a great place to eat breakfast, lunch or a quick dinner. The service was friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable....More

Great casual joint that everyone can enjoy. Atmosphere is very townie San Anselmo. Lots of choices from burgers to meatloaf. Sauteed spinach is great as is the steak. Represents the heart of our little town. Just precious!

What could be better? Organic ketchup...that's what. They are almost there. Also, organic jam or jelly!

Fun, delicious well prepared American food - burgers, steaks, meat loaf, salads, great milkshakes, along with more imaginative fusion fare like potstickers. Eating area is a bit cramped.

This place called to us from across the street. The ambiance is pure retro-diner and the food options were all inviting. Though I didn't have a milkshake or malt, they looked inviting. My burger was terrific, I'll go back for sure!
