A group my Dad is affiliated with is having its annual convention at one of the airport hotels. He asked me to put together a list of restaurants that are either a short drive from there or BART accessible, in a variety of cuisines and price ranges. The caveat is that this group is mostly older, not terribly sophisticated diners, and not particularly chowish.
I've done pretty well finding places near BART, and finding "ethnic" places near SFO (Chinese, Vietnamese, Mexican, Thai), but I'm coming up a little short on recommendations for good, reasonably priced basic "American" food. I put down Jo Ann's Cafe in SSF, which I've heard is good for breakfast, but what else is there? For that matter, are there any places like that in SF that are BART accessible (i.e., not more than four or five blocks)?
