Okay. So, there's a few of the usual chains around - Subway, Jack in the
Box, McDonalds, etc.
There are several pizza places in the area; I'm fond of Pizza My Heart. A
bit further afield but may be useful - http://pizzaboccalupo.com/ offers a
"gluten-friendly" crust. It's not celiac-disease-level gluten-free, but
it's very low gluten for those avoiding it for other reasons.
There are also assorted taquerias and burrito places around. I haven't
been to the Iguanas that's a few blocks away, but I have been to the one
closer to my house, and it's decent.
Johnny Rocket's is fairly close - this is a sit-down chain of diner-style
restaurants that did a good job the one time I've been there.
For a bit more upscale: Original Joe's is a short block away, an old-school
Italian restaurant that has been there for over 60 years. I haven't been
there but have heard good things. (https://www.sanjoseoriginaljoes.com/)
There are also some fancier restaurants in nearby hotels.
(Other, random notes - the Tech Museum of Innovation is right nearby. It's
a nice little science museum with an IMAX dome.)
There are a lot of options in the area, so something should be doable for
most tastes and dietary restrictions.
