Sober up or kill a hangover
A Castro institution, Orphan Andy's fills up when the bars close. American diner fare 24/7 keeps the mo's coming back to this greasy spoon.

      late night diner
      Reminds me of the closed melrose diner in Chicago. Located in Castro. Restaurant is place where you can get a meal after you've been drinking all night in bars. Typical diner fare such as burgers, sandwiches,and salads. Large portions, reasonable prices, and eclectic crowd.

      I love Orphan Andy's
      I remember one of the waiters considered all of the crew to be the lost boy (of Peter Pan fame). I'm old enough to actually remember Andy's Donuts on Castro Street. Really good diner food and a great place to eat st.

      monte christo with fries!
      It can be busy or dead, the vagaries of a 24/7 eatery. The food is pretty basic but good. Been going for years, and like the business during the day, the waitstaff and food varies a little but it's more regularly high quality. IMHO a must- try in the Castro.

      Wanted to like this place.
      First, the place setting had food on the fork, had to ask for clean silverware. Then, link sausage was pink in the middle. Next, egg shells in my scrambled eggs. The pancakes were good :-)

      Delicious hot food
      The food at this diner is extremely delicious. The diner has lunch & dinner specials and biscuits & gravy specials. It also has 3 new additions to its menu. I made a mistake of ordering a Country Fried Steak & Egg in the Biscuits & Gravy with Root Beer Float. I was served two plates of food with tons of sausage gravy. The root beer float is served in a cocktail shaker. Everything is delicious and satisfying, but I don't want to eat anymore gravy.

      Delicious Over Priced Late Night Food
      I've been a regular at Orphan since 93. It's great conveniant after bar food. Maybe it's just the late night crew but the waiters tend to be in a mood for some reason or they just don't look happy, lol There use to be a lady that worked there for years she was great. I miss her. Maybe it's the rent that erks the food price but I've definitley had better for less in other S.F. neighborhoods.

      Late night grab eat!
      This place is just perfect for that late night snack - burgers are tasty and inexpensive. An example of what any 24hr quick grabs should be!

      One of the best diner's I've experienced!
      Open 24 hours. The food's basic but excellent. Service is friendly, efficient and quick. On 17th Street at Castro and Market. Literally bumped into Sharon Gless (Queer as Folk) last night while I was leaving and she was going in with friends. Wonderful woman! Anyway, I highly recommend this diner!
