Dive steak house: "Henry's World Famous Hi-Life" Top 5 Page for this destination San Jose Restaurant Tip by Shaft28

San Jose Restaurants: 97 reviews and 68 photos


Locals call it Henry's, the Hi-life, or Henry's Hi-life if they are sober. Small little hidden spot in downtown withing easy walking distance of the Shark's hokey arena.
Good steaks, baked potato and garlic bread. You will not be impressed with the decor, clientelle, or the cleanliness of the spot - but the steaks will do you right. Think the house the restaurant is in is close to 100 years old.

Favorite Dish: They offer about 8 standard items and 3-4 specials. I prefer the New York steak here, just plain good. Everything is real basic here, so don't expect frills. FYI the BBQ chicken kicks butt too!
