Is Sixteen Mile House in Millbrae awesome and delicious? I heard that when they opened, the line outside was sixteen miles long.
Don't bother. It's just sort of an old-style overcooked pasta joint (at least it was 5 years ago when I tried it). 16 Miles refers to distance from SF -- "mile houses" used to dot the coach trails between SF and San Jose, I think; there are still some other mile houses around. It would be interesting if it were still in the original building, but that was actually torn down in the early '70s for freeway expansion...
Update: My friend had the regular cut prime rib. It was very tender. It comes with a choice of two from a list of six: rice pilaf, fresh vegetable, cream corn, Idaho potato, etc. I had the orange roughy, nice and flaky. The "real" sourdough bread was nice and warm. Service was great and attentive. Food just came really fast. They have an early bird $16 special on T, W, Th, & Sun from 5 to 7 p.m.
