Tommy's Joynt will fill you up all day long! We ordered an excellent brisket sandwich with Swiss cheese on sourdough bread, in addition to a turkey leg with mashed potatoes. The turkey leg was a bit dry, but the sandwich and side dish were fantastic. Cash only.

We stopped in here on a whim. When I walked in expectations were not high. Had the meatball sandwich on sourdough with a Tommy Lager. I was very surprised and pleased.

Tommy's came highly recommended to us on the past trip. It did not disappoint. I got the turkey sloppy joe and anchor lager on tap. The sandwich was so good. Pickles from the barrel were a nice touch. Something to keep in mind, this is cash only but has an ATM inside. Being from Canada, going to ATM can be... More

I have dreams about you, Tommys Joynt. Mouthwatering, meaty, gravy dreams. And your buffalo stew has always been a gift to us modern Americans. This is, handsdown, the number one best hofbrau, I have ever been to.

After year's of enjoying the food at Tommy's Joynt, we were sad to visit the restaurant yesterday afternoon. Food was cold, meats were left on steam table too long. We understand ownership of the restaurant changed a short while ago and the new owner is unable to maintain the same level of food quality the prior owner kept. Too bad.... More

Went here as result of reviews on TripAdvisor. However wasn't amazed, I never went back. Went for a drink at the Bar, however the smell from food bar can be a bit off putting. Service was unusual as I'm sure barman is slightly deaf she. Ordering. However it sold good range of beer so enjoyed drink. Stayed for one. Won't... More

We were in San Francisco to get some paperwork done. Looking for a bite to eat near the Queen Anne Hotel we came across Tommy's Joint. It is more or less a barbeque place. The meats were good and the sides were okay. Got plenty of food for a very low end price in San Francisco. Not too far from... More

Wen't here after reading about it as a great cheap meal in San Francisco. I didn't find the meal cheap, or good. The food quality was basically no different than what you would get at a cheap buffet restaurant. I ordered the roast beef platter and the buffalo chili. It was all pretty bland and disappointing.
