We eat here at least twice a month. The sourdough bread is the best you can get. There are great lunch choices of salads soups and sandwiches. His is my favorite local lunch spot. You can also get wine with your meal. If you are in the area stop in for a meal and be sure to bring some bread... More

I happened upon this place and its awesome! They have the same wonderful sourdough bread as the S.F bakery. The people are nice and the place is very clean. The menu is much smaller than the restaurant but they have that wonderful clam chowder bread bowl! I will definitely be coming back.

Love the bread. I like to get the clam chowder in the bread bowl. The sandwiches are great, I like the atmosphere. Very casual

I eat lunch here at least once a week. They make great salads and sandwiches. The soup bread bowls are delicious and very filling. The place is always busy for lunch but the line moves quickly. The food is fresh and tasty. I always bring home a loaf of bread when I go there. The price of the bread is... More

Boudin SF located in San Marcos shopping plaza. They have lunch special and daily soup options. However, The place can get packed during the lunch hour so be aware if you have a short break. The staff are attentive and the food is great.

Roasted butternut squash soup was not bad for a chain. The sourdough bread bowl option is fun but not necessary as most probably won't eat the bowl afterwards. There's a good selection of soups and they are always pretty good. The salads have definitely been improved and there are many delicious and healthy choices. Dining in you seem to get... More

Went on for lunch on a Friday because I love their sourdough bread and I have been to the original in San Francisco. The bread was good as always but my wife got a chicken kale caesar and then chose to debate the freshness of the chicken with the employee until they finally admitted it wasn't fresh and that they...

I enjoy coming to Boudin and the atmosphere is good. Nice lunch place. But there has been times when my food is lacking a good presentation, soup has been cold, or the salad dressing is a bit too sweet. What's odd is they don't have the ability to grill bread. I do love picking up a loaf of bread or... More

I really enjoyed our Sunday family lunch there. The blue cheese burger was tasty s was the goat cheese and apple salad. The restaurant was perfectly clean and service was prompt and friendly. We will definitely be back and next time I will take some of that great looking bread to go.
