      We probably prefer either Italian or American and moderate prices -perhaps there might be someplace with a kids' menu. We will not have a car with us.

        there is an outback within walking distance and within cab distance is the mooses tooth, very busy brewpub noisy - ok with families expect a wait fun atmosphereu are near many chain type places. Romanos italian is pretty close -Spenard Roadhouse is good pretty close and fun

            Its really good beer really good root beer fast service but the wait is 30 min on the super fast side to 1.5 hour
            pizza for everyone taste even a gluten free crust

              The wait sounds daunting. Do they take any reservations? It sounds doubtful.

                pretty sure its first come. It is a daunting wait. Check out Spenard roadhouse - its about same distance - has something for everyone. American food with twists - very plain items and fun stuff too - runs from tater tots and mac and cheese to miso glazed pork belly and letuuce wraps - they have pizza too.
