Its fun to experience the selections at Boudin's - Service is extremely good and always help being trained but maybe thats why service is good. Grilled selections with sour or salad is best

We are spoiled having a Boudin's so close. It's a must visit when we are in San Francisco. Simply put, everything about this location is great...except it's a tad too small and can be difficult to find a table during peak times. Food quality, service and the rewards program are awesome. We have never had a menu item that we... More

After a long walk we headed here to quench our thirst and fill our tummies. Our arrival after 1:30 meant the restaurant was quiet. We had been here in previous years and found it bustling at lunch time. Remembering the great bread, soups and salads is what brought us back, and we were not disappointed! The spring salad that my... More

We eat here at least twice a month. The sourdough bread is the best you can get. There are great lunch choices of salads soups and sandwiches. His is my favorite local lunch spot. You can also get wine with your meal. If you are in the area stop in for a meal and be sure to bring some bread... More

I happened upon this place and its awesome! They have the same wonderful sourdough bread as the S.F bakery. The people are nice and the place is very clean. The menu is much smaller than the restaurant but they have that wonderful clam chowder bread bowl! I will definitely be coming back.

Love the bread. I like to get the clam chowder in the bread bowl. The sandwiches are great, I like the atmosphere. Very casual

I eat lunch here at least once a week. They make great salads and sandwiches. The soup bread bowls are delicious and very filling. The place is always busy for lunch but the line moves quickly. The food is fresh and tasty. I always bring home a loaf of bread when I go there. The price of the bread is... More

Boudin SF located in San Marcos shopping plaza. They have lunch special and daily soup options. However, The place can get packed during the lunch hour so be aware if you have a short break. The staff are attentive and the food is great.

Roasted butternut squash soup was not bad for a chain. The sourdough bread bowl option is fun but not necessary as most probably won't eat the bowl afterwards. There's a good selection of soups and they are always pretty good. The salads have definitely been improved and there are many delicious and healthy choices. Dining in you seem to get... More

Went on for lunch on a Friday because I love their sourdough bread and I have been to the original in San Francisco. The bread was good as always but my wife got a chicken kale caesar and then chose to debate the freshness of the chicken with the employee until they finally admitted it wasn't fresh and that they...
