The Dutch goose is a fairly average beer and burger place. Free peanuts for happy hour and peanut shells on the floor. In the summer, the tiny open area in the back is great. Patrons are a mix of the Silicon Valley crowd and stanford students.

The Dutch Goose is one of the few remaining "neighborhood" burger joints remaining in the area. Feeding hundreds or so a night on hamburgers, cheeseburgers and (more recently) turkey burgers and salads, this institution truly packs 'em in during Stanford games and little league and soccer seasons. The food is OK and not outrageously priced, though they load up their... More

Grew up eating their burgers, Louisiana hot sausage, daily specials and deviled eggs. They've added a few things including a bar in the back outside. A Menlo Park classic!

You know a place is good when is full of local people, well, this time I can't share their opinion. The place is always full, it is not easy to get a parking place even if they have their own parking space. The place is loud, very loud, so forget about coming here if you don't like this kind of...

Beer, burgers, fries, peanuts, pool, sports, neighborhood, this is the kind of place everyone should visit at least once.

I'm not sure why this place is so popular because it is just an average place. The parking is challenging. And the food is very greasy. My boyfriend and I shared their fish and chips and tri tip sandwich. The trip tip was tough. The fish and chis were very greasy. We also ordered a side of sweet potato fries... More

Burgers are outstanding, and obviously the deviled eggs are top-notch. Enjoy a beer in the beer garden outside. Sometimes crowded with kids and their respective sports teams celebrating but otherwise a very neighborhood-type place - friendly locals grabbing a bite with their families after work. Always takes a bit since they make everything fresh. Besides the burgers, I've also had... More

Their devilled eggs are unrivaled and worth making a special trip for! I've never found them elsewhere either!

The place has good food. Price seems a tad high. But, the food is good. A definite thumbs up. Have only been there for lunch. Brisket is great. Burgers are decent. Sweet Potato fries are better than most. They have one of those fancy Coke dispensing machines: great for variety, bad for speed. Actually has some off-street parking in the... More
