Our daughter lives close by so we walked from her apartment and didn't experience any parking issue. The food here is tasty and well prepared. Servers were excellent. Our granddaughter was served her dinner within minutes of ordering which is priceless when you have a hungry child. The pot roast dinner was amazingly tender and flavorful. Hamburgers are good. The macaroni and cheese is rich and creamy. The only negative is the noise level.

Its been a long time since I come to near by Tanforan Shopping Mall, near the San Francisco Airport.

However, A friend or two decide to meet up and catch up on each others timeline. It was agreed to meet at Jack's Restaurant on El Camino Real. Though I have been down here from San Francisco, I always missed the sign , "JACK'S" across from the Mall.

The reason is for missing it is that the parking lot is in back street from El Camino Real. So the front door faced the apartment building to serve these people better.

Parking is tough during lunch hour. But we decided to meet at 1:00 pm instead and were able to have a booth! The menu has a wide varieties of meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Appetizers, soups, salads, pasta, steaks, sandwiches, hamburgers, etc Basically, its what one wants if hungry.

The server came quickly asked if what beverages we want and if we were ready to order. She gave us time and then we each ordered our lunch meal. Three of us ordered a different dish: Egg Omelette, Grill cheese sandwich and a grill chicken sald.

Each dish was served all at once! And, coffee was constantly being refilled too! Great service. The dishes were served on a huge platter and food was more than enough for each of us. We enjoyed the restaurant and sat there for at least 2 plus hours!

There was also a large dining area for large party and a complete full service liquor bar at the end of one wall of this restaurant. All in all it was a comfortable and rewarding experience eating at Jack's. Jack's also have three other outlets. (Pleasant Hill, San Mateo, and Newark (new) ) And, they give 20% for breakfast too.

The only negative about jacks is the oarking. It can be hard to find parking..... The food is great and the service is smooth. I love breakfast and the french toast is my favorite. Dinner and lunch are also good. The boneless wings are delicious
