“We look at this as an extension of our home. We’re very casual and basic.
We want it to be like going over to a good friend’s place for food.” Jimmy
“Eating at Meal Ticket… is like being part of a club. Owners Jimmy & Carolyn know a lot of the people who walk in, and the people who eat there regularly know the drill: Walk to the counter… gauge the mood in the kitchen, shoot the breeze if it’s not too busy and then order.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Most ethereal pancakes I have ever tasted…” East Bay Express

“Jimmy has the touch of an old grill cook, which he was, with an elevated sensibility that shows up in the quality of little things…” San Francisco Chronicle
