Good one twocents...you had me going there.

Sadly that would still not surprise me if something like that goes in.

Anyone seen any ground Goat meat or a Goat burger in Eastbay?

Best Authentic Chinese in Richmond, CA

Why no mention of Oakland's Chinatown?

I think the OP will find many similar style dishes and takeaway Chinese food store fronts that is mentioned and seen in his link.

Is this the worst photograph of a food product ever taken?

SJMercuryNews:'Sunset Magazine to move to Oakland's Jack London Square'

Now lets build a new Oakland A's park next to JLS on the waterfront and that area and the new food center will flourish.

Forget the Raiders and Coliseum City.

Do it Libby do it!

Unbelievable low price meals back in the 70' early 80's in SF Bay area!

Back in the EastBay 70's you could have a:

Topdog,soda and chips for $1.00 in Berkeley after going to Leopold's Records a few doors down.

At Oakland's Kwik way Drivein
A cheeseburger,french fry and drink was also $1.00

H'salt esq. had fish and chips for $1.25 with extra crispy bits and malt vinegar with exotic "Gingerbeer" for a extra 45¢

At Economy Cafe in Oakland's Chinatown you could get a huge rice plate with Lobster for $1.35 for their lunch special.

Good tasty times growing up in Bay Area in the 70's!

Anyone else have some favorites?

Hippie history? Seeking info on 1970's SF restaurant where no talking was allowed!

I will start a new thread too.

Anyone sighted Smores Oreos?

They have them on Amazon.com...if you really need them.

Anyone else getting tired of "new" Craft Beer, Gourmet Burgers & 3rd Wave Coffee joints in Bay Area?

Yes...but the same thing could be said for allowing unlimited corporate fast food chains into Oakland.

"if these new businesses attract patrons, so be it."

Yes, I was the first to write and review Clove and Hoof here.

Kagoshima Wagju chuck roll at Nijiya

Is that the Nijiya in Union City?

Junior's "BBQ" ( burger )

What city is this in?

KronnerBurger - Oakland

Well I hope that "designer" never gets the job of remodeling the Julia Morgan building down the street where AG Ferrari deli is located.

KronnerBurger - Oakland

What is up with all that inappropriate uninviting harsh and cold tile work?
It felt like I was up the street at the cemetery in a mausoleum.

This could be the creepiest food place remodel since Fournee Bakery's on Domingo St. in Berkeley.

http://sf.eater.com/2015/5/4/8547407/...

Is that really a Obelisk...wtf?

The last pic should titled..."please tag this building"

Painting all that natural brick on the exterior white had to be a violation of Oakland's design review.

14 oz "pints" of beer...epic fail!

KronnerBurger - Oakland

Well now I am intrigued...did you get any negative vibe from the place or the employees?

KronnerBurger - Oakland

The best burger around is cooked in my backyard with meat from Café Rouge,buns from Acme, tomatoes from my garden, real Swiss Emmentaler Cheese and onions and Romaine lettuce from Star Grocery.

Don't forget the Bestfoods® Mayo and a tasty mustard of your own choosing!

A freshly opened jar of Maille dijon is #1 in my burger book.

KronnerBurger - Oakland

I went in the other day to check them out and have a meal with my brother.

We got a creepy pompous and arrogant "vibe" and "tude" from the burger joint and staff.

We sat, looked at the menu and said "C-YA don't want to be ya"

Went down the street and had a great meal at some new Mediterranean place.
(no not Simply Greek)

I will report back on its name and the food.

Franklin BBQ pop up mid-May?

His brisket is just salt,pepper and 100% oak for smoking...and very proper technique.

I wonder if he will source the meat locally?

I say everyone with a smoker should cook a brisket that weekend and share with friends.

Will service improve,stay the same or deteriorate with "no tipping" policies?

Michael Bauer says no to tips.

Franklin BBQ pop up mid-May?

Franklin BBQ seems to be all about the Money!

Making money is fine...gouging is not IMHO.

I was going to order a T shirt for my friend when I saw they wanted to charge $11.65 shipping on one of their logo shirts.

I just shipped a XL T shirt to a friend in Chicago last week...cost $2.80 first class USPS.

I copied this from their order page because I thought it so unreasonable.

Size: x large
Category: Apparel

1 $20.00
Shipping/Handling: $11.65
Order Total: $31.65

Will non-tipped waitpersons still care about selling drinks,appetizers and desserts or turning tables?

The financial incentive is now gone.

Will service improve,stay the same or deteriorate with "no tipping" policies?

Will Waitpersons end up making more or less money?

Mo's Hut, Oakland

Cornology (Popcorn shop) now open in SF North Beach, Livermore, Emeryville, Milpitas

I happened to drive buy Peter's Kettle Corn on the way to Everett and Jones BBQ last week.(both in the Laural district in Oakland)

Nice looking store.
And I must say many of their flavors sounded great!
And I don't even like popcorn that much.

Best Sandwich in Berkeley?

Some posters think listing cities and locations is a waste of time because you can just use "google"

I don't agree.

What did this special meal cost?
