I first heard about Grubstake on Food Network's TV show "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives". After hearing about the food, and Finding out the owner is also a Santos from Portugal, I had to try it. I took my Parents, Wife, Sister, and 2 nieces and we were not dissapointed. We were seated within 5-10 minutes (around 7 pm on a weeknight) by some of the nicest people you will ever meet. We decided that we'd each try something different and share everything. The food was outstanding. My dad said it was the closest thing he's had to his mom's cooking since she died over 35 years ago. My mom said "It was sureal... it was like I cooked the dinner, but I didn't have to cook." I had the French Dip and the Homemade Pumpkin Pie ala mode. and they were the best ones I've ever had, anywhere. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience homemade traditional Portugese food, and anyone who just wants a damn good meal. Just be sure you give yourself a good 10-20 minutes to find parking as finding a spot on the street in the area can be a pain.

Well I finally got my act together and tried this place. What I can't believe is how long it took me to do so. All I can say is I loved it. It was during the holidays and the decorations were up which only added to the atmosphere. It's a small restaurant and we were lucky to get a booth. About 15 minutes after we sat down the place filled up. It's really old school and just the kind of diner I was hoping I would still be able to find in San Francisco. The food and service was outstanding. The portions are plentiful and well-presented. Needless to say, this one will now have a place on my "Most Favorite Restaurants in San Francisco" and though it may not be fancy, it's fantastic.
