Classic restaurant very popular with locals and truckers, standard american fare at good prices, but very crowded because of it's popularity. Sandy (the owner) has been a waitress at a couple of Gilroy restaurants including Jeffery's. But Jeffery's closed and she bought this restaurant. Since everyone in town knows her, they flock to the restaurant. Sundays are quite busy, but... More

Service was good but the breakfast was just ok, nothing special. Bacon, sausage were on the cold side and the toast was very cold as if it had been sitting for a while because he gob of butter didn't melt.

Ate breakfast here around 9am on a Wednesday, the restaurant was not very busy and kind of quiet. I was seated promptly and the friendly waitress took my order right away. 10 minutes later I had my food and it was delicious. Short stack of pancakes, hot light and fluffy with whipped butter and syrup, two strips of extra crispy... More

I have eat at Sandy's more then 6 times. It is a hit or miss on service. If they are busy, turn around a go to another restaurant. My husband and I waited over 40 mins once with no one even giving us a menu. We were caught up in our conversation and realized people who sat down have ordered,... More

My husband had the liver and onions and he enjoyed it. I won't touch liver. I had a great sandwich and we both had a nice salad. It was good food at a real reasonable price. We met the owner and she was very nice. Her employees seem very happy too. We will go back for sure.

Checked out Sandy's as it's near to home. Good number of items to choose from the menu. Casual, like just dining at home.

Only open for breakfast and lunch. Reasonably priced. Good portions, good food. Found the pancakes on this day to be a little tough, but tasty. Staff was friendly and attentive, knew all the locals. I would eat here again.

The serving staff were great, the food was tasty! The kids breakfast selections were great (like adult breakfast combos including a pancake, egg and meat, but smaller servings). My son in particular loved his breakfast so much he wanted to come back for lunch and "every time we come to Gilroy"

Was there this morning (SAT) around 10AM. Was seated fairly quickly and service was good to very good. We both had bacon/eggs and were done very nicely with a very nice portion of much better than average bacon. I had a pancake rather than toast and it was good, as well. Nothing extraordinary but clean neat place with good old... More

Food is always good portion size ok. But ask them to close the door because it was cold at 6 :30 a.m. and suddenly they got mean. No lie. The waitress got pissed. I felt bad. Unwelcome I don't believe I will go back. It is a local hang out I group of older fellows meet for breakfast often. Kind... More
