    I was a Southsider alot of my time there at Castlecrag aptmts.

    So...Durant Center: Manuels beer and carne asada burritos, Kingpin, uncertain ground(just for the faux earthquake decor), jade garden.

    Top dog, Kips for pitchers and pitchers, Heidelbergs day (and night when it transformed into a chinese menu).

    Down the way on telegraph Mezzo, Berkeley Market deli , sometimes joshyu ya and casa de eva for the high back booths and rc gormans across every wall.

    You nailed it for me - I'd add King Pin, Manuel's, Heidelberg, LaVal's on Northside, Taiwan on University, down to Bertola's occasionally, & Fenton's. Thanks for the reminder on Blimpie's. And Flint's after a few beers - great place to go at about 2 AM.

    In my time (early '80's): Bertola's, Bongo Burger, LaVal's, Top Dog, Fondue Fred's, Fentons. Just writing this list is giving me stomach rumblings, of both a good and a bad sort.

    Zona Rosa and Mario's La Fiesta. The Baked Potato cart on Bancroft at Sproul Plaza.

    I can't be the only one who actually liked Blondies. Mid-70's and early 80's (my two stints at Cal) there was always a line out the door. Yes, mainly it was cheap. But it was also good, once. A long time ago. BTW, there is still a Blondies in Pleasant Hill. As bad as the one on Telegraph just before its merciful demise...

    I enjoyed slices at Blondies just fine. Cheap too.

    On Northside in the 60's it was kinda sparse (as was my food budget)
    Top Dog Late nights at Campbell
    Giant Burger (for pie)
    LaVals for a movie night at Northside Theater (or whatever it was called)
    back then movie and pizza was the pinnacle of my social life

    I ate at Fat Slice more than anywhere else - but mostly because a slice and a coke was $1.50 or something like that.
