Love this place! Consistently good, simple, hearty food. We love coming here for brunch. Service is fast and very friendly. Your coffee is never empty! Food is reasonably priced and all around high quality compared to other brunch options in the area. They have been around since the 1970s, and this place is a neighborhood staple.Love ... read more

I've always really liked Gunther's but my last visit left a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively). I've been going there for years. The other day I got take out and after I finished paying I decided to ask for the free cookie for my 3 yr old who was with me and the older asian lady first lied and said she didn't have any. LIAR I just ... read more

3.5 starsEver since our very delicious and memorable experience at Katz in NYC we've been searching for a good deli close to home.We came on a week night a couple of weeks ago, parking was pretty easy. Walking into an almost full dining area, we were warmly greeted and seated immediately. It's clearly a family run business, several w ... read more

Most amazing customer service I have experienced in San Jose. Delicious Rueben and believe it or not the Best clam chowder in town! The Chocolate chip cookies are insane!!! I'm mad that I have lived my entire life and only tried them for the first time today. Cookies will never be the same after trying Gunther's!

Service may not be the most on-point, and prices are definitely on the high side -- but the latter definitely seems to be made up by the quality of the food.

Gunther's food is what I imagine an excellent deli and restaurant should be. The corned beef is YUM! Only my momma use to make it better! And I tried the Matzo ball soup for the first time and it did not disappoint. The chocolate chip cookies..there are no words!

Ok...all I have to say is these cookies are ridiculously good. I grew up in Campbell and have driven past Gunthers at least a million of times and have never been in.

So this is the kind of place that your grand parents eat. The style and food us catered to that generation. It may be the best breakfast in town but only for the 75+ age group. The price they charged us for breakfast ~$36 for two,  was way too much. The service was mediocre. The coffee was meh.

Came here on a Saturday to try their Rueben sandwich.  I would call this one a "better than average" Rueben.  The flavor of the meat did not knock me off my seat (bad rhyme), but it was pretty decent.  But if/when I return I think I might try something else.

In my opinion, these are by far the best chocolate chip cookies in the Bay Area! I bought their cookies for a catering event recently. Gunther's has mastered the art of baking them so they are firm on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside, almost tasting a little like cookie dough in the center. They're not cheap, but they're ... read more

A cute little neighborhood gem hidden away. The food is generally pretty good--especially for breakfast-- and the service is exceptional. They tend to cater to a more local crowd and for breakfast it's a step up from Denny's. And I do like a Grand Slam. We like Gunther's for all those reasons but also because it's so convenient to wh ... read more

One of the best places to have breakfast or lunch!
