lunch between SFO and Napa

I need a reasonable place for lunch en route from SFO to St. Helena--Closer to SFO would be better

  1. In-N-Out in Mill Valley (Tiburon Blvd. exit) qualifies as reasonable (price and quality) in my book ... further description of what you mean by "reasonable" would be helpful.

    1. re: rainmarin

      Also which routing, over the Golden Gate or Bay Bridge?

    2. Bay Bridge to CA 37 ,then CA 29 North (at least that's what mapquest says

      1. If you like Middle Eastern, there is a small (very small as of five years ago when I lived there), but excellent place just off of 101 in SF (which is on your route), called Truly Mediterranean. I'm sure it's been discussed on this board.

        Truly Mediterranean
        3109 16th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
        (at Valencia St.)

        1. OK, given the Bay Bridge route, I'd get over the Bay Bridge to get that out of the way and then consider lunch in Berkeley which has some outstanding restaurants ... what type of food are you in the mood for and what day of the week? Some places are closed Monday or have odd schedules or are mobbed on certain days of the week.

          Taking the University or Gillman exits can put you right at the doorstep of some great restaurants, so what is your interest food-wise and what type of atmosphere?

          1. I would go to Hong Kong Flower Lounge for dim sum. Its one of my favorite dim sum places in the Bay Area and it doesn't get much closer to SFO
