Strange, weird or hidden places to eat in the Eastbay?

Here are a few:
#1
Try a sandwich at the Honeybaked ham® place on Piedmont Ave.(In a mini mall near the top toward Pleasant Valley) Its been there 20 years.

Its hard to describe the experience.

All I can say is:

You will probably be the only customer.

You will get one of the most elaborate quality $4.00 sandwiches ever made.

It will take at least 10-15 minutes to make your sandwich.

And it comes with assorted free "unusual" side dishes.

Assorted meats too! And great soup bones are available(used to be free ,now kinda pricy)

#2

Jerry's Beefburgers in
San Leandro.

Jerrys makes a fine burger with fresh cut fries...way better than In and out.

Located on a strange un traveled section of Macarther Blvd. in San Leandro
560 Macarthur Blvd to be exact.

There is a huge Chinese place next door,but it always looked empty...even at prime lunch hours.

#3
The Kingfish Cafe and pub on Claremont and Telegraph used to serve Sanwiches and Chili and Chowder.

But they stopped just as the area began to prosper.

Still open for beer, at least till its torn down for more condos.

They don't build places like this anymore.
