That place is now the Grubstake Diner and has even been featured in Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Brian and I stopped by for dinner before we went to see Jennie perform in "Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them" with The Custom Made Theatre Company. She is starring as Luella in the Bay Area premiere of a comedy by Christopher Durang.
I had the Strike Cheeseburger with seasoned fries. A good burger, it was made better by the thick chocolate shake I had to go with it.
Brian had the turkey burger with onion rings. I thought the onion rings were quite tasty but he didn't have too much to say about his burger.
It is decorated with an eclectic mix of Portugal soccer memorabilia and black and white photographs. Definitely a place to stop by for film noir buffs or those wanting a bit of San Francisco history.
They are also open until 4am, so you can also stop in after a night of drinking and you won't regret it.
