New and Venerable Institutions: Tommy's Joynt

1101 Geary Blvd.
This hofbrau on Geary at Van Ness is one of our enduring institutions. Tommy's Joynt has operated in the same location for more than 50 years and is still run by the family of original owner Tommy Harris. The average dinner bill is still seven bucks. With its worn decor Tommy's is a time capsule of a San Francisco remembered. And nothing you can carry on your tray is fat free! Tommy's is the no-frills place to go for roast beef, roast turkey, pastrami, brisket, corned beef, and buffalo stew.
