So, being from Chicago, I'm happy to see a place that sells Vienna Beef Hot Dogs and other products. Especially when you can have a Vienna Beef Hot Dog on a Poppy Seed bun! Tell me where you can get Poppy Seed buns in Norcal (PLEASE!) They also sell everything Deli style for home cooking. The problem is the price. $5.75 for a hot dog.. Ouch your killing me, I mean ok we are in Norcal and there is no alternative, and the alternative places that are selling sub-par hot dogs are charging just as much, but hey, I guess it beats a ticket back to Chicago to get my favorite 2 dogs, fries and a coke for $3. I guess I've been spoiled, but until Norcal gets invaded by Chicago-style hot dog stands, I guess I'm stuck with Moishe's Pippic.
The prices of this Lees' location are 25 cents to 50 cents more expensive than its South Bay sibling stores! However they put two extra slices of cucumbers to make up the price, and the sandwich tasted the same! Not worth the trip and poverty scenery to the Tenderloin IMO. Also they don't accept credit card for merchandise less than 5 dollars, so be aware to bring cash with you. The sandwiches are always made to order, crispy crunchy outside, and soft inside. The store is big and very clean, no washroom (or it was out of order, then you are screwed) The service in The City is always at the minimum level of attentiveness, so don't expect much from this location
Although the meat sandwiches are reasonable this place doesn't have cheaper fruit salads for example. It seems about the same price and what price difference there is couldn't possibly be worth it. I would rather pay a couple bucks extra and actually enjoy my sandwich if I am treating someone. For me; the salad bar is totally new. I haven't tried that yet but it looks just as expensive as the rest of downtown.
