Target, JC Penney & Sephora, Food Court are the usual shops I go to in Tanforan. There is Jollibee at the food court. Parking lot is enough for everyone. Nothing extraordinary here. Just a simple mall.

I had 3 teenagers visiting from the midwest and they were totally happy with this mall. Favorite stores included Tilly's and Zumiez.

Many stores anchored by JC Penny's, Target, Sears and Toys R Us. Good place to kill time waiting for you flight from SFO. Just minutes from the airport in San Bruno. Lots of eateries here too such as BJs, Five Guys, Hooters, Jollibee, Panda Express,...More
