Best bars in West Menlo Park

Bar
$$
“This is actually a restaurant but it has a nice, small, friendly bar inside and when the weather is nice you can sit outside, have a drink or meal, and people watch. Happy Hour: 3-6:30pm and after 9pm. Close: Sun-Thurs. 10pm, Fri-Sat 11pm. This is the only place which stays open late in sleepy Menlo Park, but this is why we live here. For more late-night action, go to downtown Palo Alto. ”

“My favorite burger in town. The original place was in LA and thought to be the best burger there. The buns are what we used to think of as normal size. The truffle cheeseburger is incredible as are the onion rings. Be aware that they cook the burger one level less done than ordered. ”
