Couple other spots I used to love eating at when I lived off of 9th st.
Peanuts Cafe. Located across the street from SJSU's north side, it's a bit of a walk/drive from the Arena, but it has one of the better Cajun Chicken sandwiches I ever had and their steak fries are awesome.
Grub Shack just opened not too long ago, located on Santa Clara St near 3rd. Awesome pulled pork sliders on King's Hawaiian rolls.
I heard theyre putting an Ike's Place in downtown SJ soon as well. Excellent sandwich shop.
