Without steak, most Americans wouldn’t be able to justify owning such terrifyingly sharp steak knives, much less an entire rack of steak guns. Today's deal gives you a chance to use them: for $15, you get $30 worth of American cuisine and drinks at The Van's ‘on the hill’, located in Belmont.

For more than 50 years, The Van's has served up steakhouse favorites and upscale American cuisine for lunch and dinner. Start tongues tapping with bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp packed with herb cream cheese ($11.95). Or opt for hand-wrapped spring egg rolls with sweet chili dipping sauce ($9.95). Fresh pastas include fettuccine alfredo ($13.95), while the decadent Genoese pork chop arrives stuffed with Italian sausage and mozzarella, and drizzled with a creamy pesto sauce ($21.95). Mesquite-broiled dishes include the mouth-melting salmon fillet draped with lemon-dill butter ($24.95), as well as a signature pound-and-a-half cut of juicy porterhouse steak ($47.95), a dish so manly its eaters have been known to spontaneously sprout luxurious Tom Selleck mustaches.

Built in 1915 as part of the Japanese exhibition at the Panama Pacific International Exposition, The Van's historical interior boasts a quaint, retro atmosphere. Grab a window seat during lunch or dinner to dreamily gaze upon the panoramic view of San Francisco Bay, or pre-nosh at the complimentary hors d'oeuvres buffet Monday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended, so call ahead or send word by boxcar children.

The Van's "Restaurant On The Hill"

The Van's has earned the admiration of diners and drinkers since 1947, though its historic teahouse structure dates even farther back—to 1915 when constructed to house a portion of the Japanese Exhibition at the Panama Pacific International Exposition. The restaurant's dining rooms offer panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay, complemented by rich, ethnic-inspired eats and select wines. The restaurant's bar area boasts the original wallpaper from 1915, as well as historic photographs showing the Peninsula.
