Alices Restaurant 10

Alice’s Restaurant is located in the San Francisco coastal mountain range at the intersection on Highway 35 Skyline Blvd, and Highway 84. They are “Home to the best specialty burgers in the world”, as they put it. Lots of motorcyclists stop here on the weekend as well as hikers, bikers, and those touring the area. We have eaten here several times, the last time in June 2010.

Alices Restaurant 9

Decor, Vibe – This place has a country feel to it, with a counter and lots of outdoor seating. Lots of tourists, motorcycle riders, bicyclists, locals, and some public servants aka cops were dining.

OK:
Half Slab of Ribs ($16.95 Lunch) was a good sized slab but looked an unappetizingly pale.  They were passable but could have been warmer.  Meat was tender and fell off the bone. The BBQ sauce was zesty but probably out of a can. Included some decent fries and a tiny salad.

Alices Restaurant Kobe Beef Burger

We tried the half pound Kobe Beef burger ($10.95) and found it came with fresh condiments, but was cooked too well. The meat started to fall apart and really didn’t taste special.  A real Kobe Beef burger would cost $50+. Definitely not the “best specialty burgers in the world.”

Alices Restaurant Garlic Fries

Garlic Fries ($2.50 small) were plentiful although the garlic was pretty zingy and not well integrated. It was tossed together. Gorden Birsch does these well.
Sweet Potato Fries ($3.95) were thin but decent. Aioli that was included was good.

Alices Restaurant Caesar Salad

Alices Restaurant Split Pea Soup

Traditional Caesar Salad ($8.95) and Bowl Soup of the Day ($4.95) – Split Pea were pretty average.

Pans:
Beef Brisket ($9.95) was pretty plain tasting and came with the same average sauce as the Ribs.

This place isn’t expensive and its food is pretty average. If you are in the area, there are few options, making it a good place to hang out for a quick bite. Minimize the damage and order low end. You can always drive down Highway 84 and hit Buck’s or the fine dining at Village Pub. Live Music every Thursday Night. Dinner and Kid’s Menu available.
