There are few places in San Jose that are as unapologetically carnivorous as Henry's World Famous Hi-Life, and that's why we love it. If you've never been here, the deal goes like this: 1) walk in, take a number, park at a barstool, get a cocktail or brew and wait for the server to come by to take your order. 2) Have another round while you wait for the server to come tell you your food is ready, which is when they'll take you to an actual table. 3) Have yet another round and enjoy your plate of barbecued meaty goodness. It's that simple. During football season, Henry's gets packed with gridiron junkies seeking steak, eggs and beer as early as 8:30am. This joint is also stumbling distance from HP Pavilion, so it gets equally as packed when big shows or Sharks games are going on.
