“It’s Tops award-winning fresh ground burgers are juicy and hand formed. Fixin’s are grilled onion, mayo, lettuce, tomato and pickles.” Added Monterey jack cheese and subsituted crispy onion rings. $11.20 It’s Tops Coffee Shop, San Francisco CA
I’d been meaning to finally try this hole-in-the-wall 50’s diner on Market Street. We were starving after a night at the theatre so we decided to duck in for a late meal on our way home. The restaurant decor is very kitschy and the service was super friendly, but the food was marginal verging on just plain bad. This burger was pretty large, but really boring and sad looking. The onion rings were limp, soggy and greasy. Ew!
Scallop mixed with masago and spicy mayonnaise. Uramaki (inside-out) $9.50
Tokkuri Tei, Honolulu HI
Mmm! It’s a bit sad that one of the better rolls we had here was a simple spicy scallop roll. Some of the other items weren’t so fresh tasting, but maybe the spicy mayonnaise helped to cover up the old flavor. Who knows? I still enjoyed it.

Double Decker! 1/2 pound of gourmet bacon and turkey breast with avocado, tomato, lettuce, and mayonnaise on toasted sourdough. Served with macaroni salad. $16 Giovanni Pastrami, Honolulu HI
Another gigantic sandwich from Giovanni Pastrami. This one was less creative with the ingredients, but it still hit the stop. Actually, it more than hit the spot – it sat in my stomach for a long while afterward, hehe.
Bacon, eggs, cheese and mayo of white bread. Served with home fries. $8.95
Big Ed’s Alley Inn, Reno NV
I think this just about gave me a heart attack, lol! The sandwich bread was definitely grilled on the same area on the grill where the bacon and eggs where first cooked. And that healthy slathering of mayo just about stopped my heart. If I was younger, I’d say this was awesome but sadly I’m getting old and have to admit that this was a bit too greasy and fatty for me…
Ham, mortdadella, Italian salami, cheese, mayonnaise, garlic spread, mustard, crushed jalapenos, lettuce, and tomato on Dutch crunch bread. $7.75
Darby Dan Sandwich Co., South San Francisco CA
The sandwiches here are quite large and pretty good! They tend to pile on the spreads so if that doesn’t interest you, I’d suggest requesting a light application, hehe. I also love that their Dutch crunch bread is extra flaky on top!
Shallot confit, arugula, mayo, preserved lemon. $9 Pig & Pie, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this was VERY good! My one food critique would be that the sausage could have been seared a little more – it was difficult to tear through the skin. I also had to wait a REALLY long time for it, but I guess this was OK since it was yummy!
