Boca's in Novato - good early bird special
It's Mon-Thurs, 5-6:30pm. 3 courses for $20. Soup or salad, then choice of either chicken, hangar steak (8 oz) or linguini with shrimp, and a brownie ice cream sundae for dessert.
Lots of parking in the back. Nice patio dining. Inside is a little loud.
The only odd thing about our dinner was the timing of the dishes. They brought out the kids' meals before our salads and soup; I told the kids to eat their bread and appetizer slowly (so that they wouldn't be done with dinner before we were even served our entrees!)
Other than that, I think it's a good deal, in a nice setting.
