    55555 by Dayle J H.


  • EaterMany a potential hangover has been staved off with a bowl of the Caldo Verde. Fans shouldn't wait, since the fate of the building rests in the hands of new owners (with possible development plans).

  • Amy B.THE late night place to eat. Food is solid. If you're in a snack mood you won't be disappointed by the mozzarella sticks or jalapeño poppers. Quick service!

    55555 by Amy B.

    55555 by Kian Lavi

  • Ben CoffeeYou gotta try this place at least once. Seating is kind of close together cause the place is small.

    55555 by Ben Coffee


  • Karsten McVayGreat burgers, onion rings, potato skins. If you're craving perfectly greasy food, this is your place

    55555 by Karsten McVay


  • AGVSMGrubstake offers a diner-like ambiance and serves classic American-style diner staples (burgers, steaks, etc), but you don't go here for those items. You eat at Grubstake for their Portuguese menu.

    55555 by AGVSM


  • Lawrence W.The bacalhau cozido com todos (baked cod with veggies) is a pretty healthy alternative to the usual diner fare.

    55555 by Lawrence W.

    55555 by Eater


  • Matt H.They put chicken tenders on the Specials list; that's how many f**** this place doesn't give. Awesome diner.

  • Food NetworkGuy Fieri, host of Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, visits the Grubstake Diner, an old-time American restaurant in downtown San Francisco, that serves up Portuguese specialties.

    55555 by Food Network


  • SFistThis stalwart diner just off Polk Street serves until 4 a.m., and is well known as a pre-hangover, pre-sleep, drunk-eating spot. We'd say it's still a solid bet for the greasiest of hangover remedies.

    55555 by SFist


  • Erica J. S.Still great after all these years. The staff is wonderful.

    55555 by Erica J. S.


  • Myke M.Servers are mean to gay guys. Stay away if you're a group of gays without a hot chick.

    55555 by Casey H.

    55555 by Jon H.

  • Hiromi N.Although they are mostly known for their quirky decor, Portuguese food, burgers and late night post drunken revelry food, there are healthy options to be had here like their tilapia with veggies.

    55555 by Hiromi N.


  • Aldo G.We love the Grub! If you [out-of-towners] think the prices are a bit high, wait till you see how much food you're getting for the money.

  • T E.Late night.

    55555 by T E.
