Old guys lunch or dinner in SF

Four retired guys looking for places for a latish, 12:30-1:30, lunch and early, 5:00-6:00, dinner in San Francisco. Anywhere easily accessible by Muni, but extra points for east of Van Ness. Prefer European cuisines (we've already organized Asian) and prices per head less than $30 including a couple of beers and the tip. Quiet would be a big plus, our hearing isn't what it once was.

  1. How about the new Original Joe's on Washington Square? I am not sure you could keep under $30 per head for dinner, but you should be able to do it for lunch.

    1. +1 on Original Joe's, but even at lunch you wouldn't make budget unless you steered away from their steaks and chops. Their acclaimed liver and onions or the Joe's Special should be within your budget.

      Maybe Capps' Corner? Or the monthly lunch organized by Gino & Carlo's? (These are all in North Beach, near Original Joe's.)

      1. Best place for old farts on a budget (I'm one too) would be U.S. Restaurant on Columbus. Friday special is a half order of calamari fritti (it's plenty, believe me) with surprisingly good vegetables or pasta for $9.00. Whole order is $13.00I think the rabbit is $15.00. Best deal in North Beach. Quiet too.
