Oldest Restaurant in the South Bay

Which South Bay restaurant is the oldest? It could come down to this one vs. Original Joe’s in downtown San Jose. I’m told the Longhorn in Sunnyvale has been there about 60 years. We know Original Joe’s goes back to 1956, so that’s 62 years. They make El Burro in Campbell seems like a baby at just 47 years!

I’ve eaten at all three, and recommend them for certain orders. At Longhorn yesterday, I had the mushroom omelette and stayed simple. At Original Joe’s, I really like the side of mushrooms. And at El Burro, I recommend the tostadas because I don’t see any mushrooms on the menu!

 

Happy eating ~
