Denica's was recommended by friends at church - said try the cookie samples for sure. This was my first time and I needed a place to have breakfast and visit with friend from Japan. I checked out the website..very nice and even enrolled in the Reward program. We met at 8am so no problem with space. Katrina was so pleasant..answered all our questions and was totally gracious and professional. My friend has huevos rancheros and I had the beniko burrito. It was good...only feedback...while I did get salsa..I think it was a bit dry inside. For me..perhaps a softer egg scramble would have helped.We felt very comfortable enjoying our visit...at that hour restaurant was not busy..appreciated the entire staff. On our way out, we got cinnamon rolls and choc. chip oatmeal cookies to go..Nice young man waited on us. Of course, trying your samples helped me decide I needed cookies for the grandkids...haha. I plan to try Denica's again with my family.

Very packed so you were sitting close to the other tables but I don't mind it. They get you your meal in minutes, walked in with a hangover, walked out with a happy tummy.

This is pretty classic diner-type food. Huge proportions and low prices, so you're definitely getting a nice, filling meal that's not going to break the bank. The wait staff are all very pleasant and friendly and I've never had a problem. If they may make a minor mistake, they're very quick to fix it and apologize.It's never so crowded that I've had to wait, but not super dead either (except maybe some times on week nights). The food is nothing to necessarily write home about or recommend to friends coming in from out of town, but it's a great local spot for a filling meal when it's too hot to cook or you just feel like going out.Also - bonus points for having all-day breakfast and my favorite, hamburger patty & eggs! I only wish they were open later than 9:00 PM as we're late eater.

Flew into Oakland airport and commute traffic was horrible. Looked for a place close by to eat and decided to try Horatioâs. We were seated immediately at a wonderful table overlooking the marina. An incredibly friendly waiter , Greg, soon stopped by with some recommendations for our meal. I chose the ribs and macaroni which turned out to be the best meal I have had in a long time. Took half the ribs home for lunch the next day. The scallops and calamari eaten by my friends was equally fabulous. We left with full, happy tummies and had no traffic getting to San Jose.

Made a visit for my birthday which is in the week prior to Christmas. We don't visit much because they always look so busy and there are not many location around any more. This particular location shares a parking lot with Lucky's and some other shops in the strip mall so parking is never easy. This night proved to be no different. Half expecting them to be super busy and a long wait we only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table once inside. They really were not that busy. So once we were seated I ordered a cocktail from the bar and some water for the wife; she rarely drinks anything. Our waitress took a while to return for our actual food order. Once she did I ordered my entrÃ©e which was all we ordered, as the wife, who had some dental work done that afternoon could not eat yet. Seemed like the food took a while (30 minutes) to arrive. My entrÃ©e had a med-rare slice of prime rib and twin tails of lobster. The salad came quick but the hot stuff was a long delay afterwards. I asked for a plate to share some of my food with her and was given a very small plate, like a bread plate. My wife mentioned to the waitress that it was my birthday so I was given a hot cookie with scoop of ice cream. It was good but more than I could eat so glad she helped me finish it. Service was ok. But we noticed that every little side you order is charged for. When they ask if you want things on the side ([for your] salad, steaks, potatoes, etc.)take note that these are all at additional charge and some are more than what may be considered reasonable. Food is okay. My prime rib was about 40% fat once I trimmed it off. At their prices I would expect better ratios than that. I told my life that because of higher prices and average service we could visit other middle of the road steak houses for the same thing, for less. This dinner: 1 entrÃ©e, 1 cocktail, 1 lemonade and a couple sides + a 15% tip totaled nearly $75. WOW! I can't say that this visit increases the desire to come back anytime soon.

How did I not know about this place growing up in the city next to Hayward! My mom said she used to have my dad go get Val Hamburgers when she was pregnant with me. Cravings! Well, I have grown children now, and this is the first i had heard of this place from her! She wanted to take my grown son here as he likes hamburgers. All I can say is they were absolutely awesome hamburgers! i got the mama burger and it was plenty big. The papa was 2 BIG patties and it was very large I split a strawberry shake with my son and I don't even like strawberry shakes.... I'm a vanilla person.... but this strawberry shake was very good! Fries are the big steak fries and they were good too, but I do enjoy skinnier fries better, but the fries were still good. Impressive place, loved the history and all the employees we came in contact with were so nice. When I find myself in the bay area again, I'd definitely come back! In fact, looking forward to that.

As far as Hayward goes, this place is a great option. Convenient downtown location. Food and beer were okay and not too pricey. Half sandwich and soup at lunch for $15. Pretty standard brew pub fare. Lots of space for larger parties and outdoor seating for those hot summer days.

Elio's is a standard neighborhood restaurant. It is very consistent in quality. Friendly and efficient service. You tend to see the same faces there whenever you go. That is a testament to the quality. They have daily specials for each day. The short ribs are worth a trip. There is a full bar and sports on TV. A nice place to go for a quick meal or if you're passing through town.

My husband and I eat here quite often. Harry's is a great hofbrau and has lots of options. Soup, sandwiches, salads, hot entrees, lots of side dishes, many daily specials, senior/kids meal, desserts. Full bar and bar seating/tables with several tv's. Great space if you have a large family or eating with several friends. Something for everyone!
