Jack’s in San Bruno

Close to San Francisco International Airport is an establishment called Jack’s Restaurant and Bar.  I have been here a few times and been impressed with their variety and quality of food.  They’ve got a lot to choose from and have very reasonably priced early bird specials.

On my last visit, my cousin got this creamy salmon orzo

I opted for one of their early bird specials, served from 4:30-6:30 daily for roughly $16/person.  I started with a bowl of soup, for which I chose their special – beef barley:

And my entree was their fried chicken with veggies and mashed potatoes:

For dessert, my cousin likes to get their bread pudding (which is also very good) but I wanted something different this time…  So, we go their “Galaktoboureko”, which is a traditional greek dessert, with semolina custard rolled in phyllo pastry topped with apricot-orange blossom preserve pistachio ice cream

image  So yummy.  Loved the orange blossom- apricot combination.  And the phyllo was still hot when this dessert came out, melting the ice cream into a really gooey yummy note.

So, like the website says:  http://ilovejacks.com/about.htm   It is hard not to love Jack’s!
