Fog City Diner...is it really that good?
My first trip to San Francisco and everyone says go to the Fog City Diner.
Is it really that good? Or a tradition? Is it a tourist trap?
And, in Napa, is there anything "new & exciting" that New Yorkers may not have heard about yet?
Looking forward to this visit and all the good food!
I've been to Fog City Diner 3 times in the past two years and all of the meals were great. Good, casual comfort food.
I haven't been for years and years, because the operation changed a bit and started feeling more like a tourist trap, but I used to swear by their lamb sandwich with apricot chutney.
Fog City Diner is one of my favorite places to go for LUNCH, thanks or reminding me, I think I will go tomorrow. I LOVE the Red Snapper sandwich with coleslaw (served lunch time only). The bloody marys are my favorite, served strained with no ice, but nice and chilly and tasty. Mmmmm.
Hope you report back. This place doesn't get mentioned much. It was a hot spot when it opened decades ago, then there were changes and not so great for a while from what I was reading. Lately I've been reading more positive things

I haven't been to Fog City Diner in years, but wouldn't recommend it to someone on their first trip to SF. There are so many other great choices. I don't consider it a tradition among locals but others may have a different view.
Go to Ubuntu in Napa and see what all the talk is about. And report back!
I will dissent on Fog City Diner.... I've eaten there because it was near the office... but I wouldn't even get on a Trolley / Cab / BART to get to it... I don't think anybody should be recommending it to an out of towner.
