Had the carnitas bowl. Super tasty and a good sized portion. The menu is super varied with almost anything you could think of

I'm not a fan of veggie burgers because of their tastes, but what I got here was amazing. Burger was in-house made with a combination of beans, chickpeas, zucchini and some other vegetables. I really enjoyed the taste! And it comes with sow therm style fries that is really goooood!!!

We were at Stanford for Graduation and were walking around the campus. Everyone wanted food and we decided to get something to drink also. It was decided on the Treehouse. There were adults and kids. There was a line and except for the pizza you had to wait. There was a large selection of food. We got a wide selection.... More

We actually visited the location on the campus of Stanford University. It must have been in between class sessions because there were not a lot of people there. We got the fish tacos and chicken burrito bowl. Both had very fresh ingredients. The portions were large and the price was VERY reasonable. It was a great place to sit, eat... More

Think of overcooked and poor quality chicken bits, tiny rubbery tortillas, and a reddish brown taco sauce that bears no relation to Mexican or even Tex-Mex cuisine. Several catering experiences with this organization has left me running for a food truck and with a deep seated distrust of most Stanford-run food services. Not what you want to serve a crowd.

I don't get the middling reviews for this place as I visited this restaurant two times in two weeks and found high-quality, delicious food at outstanding prices. On a campus where food can be quite pricey, Treehouse has filling, good meals for less than $6.50. The restaurant can get crowded but the seating is good (and you can sit outside... More

The food is good with a limited menu, the service is quick, and the atmosphere is ok. We were drawn to it often while on campus. It is on a corner of Tressider which houses several other eating and drinking venues and is often missed because patrons stop before reaching it. Agree with the comments of others about the outdoor... More

The tree house is a pretty ok campus bar. Beer pitchers are decently priced and the chicken wings are ok and come in different varieties. Seating outside is pretty dirty as they have no one to clean the table.

My son and I visited recently for a quick lunch; the food was OK, but the cashier scammed USD10 off me - when I realized this, I did not want to return to make a fuss about it. Unfortunately this detracted from the experience.

I use to eat at Treehouse two or three times a week while at Stanford. They have some of the best Mexican food! Also, the Cardinal burger is delicious. One of my favorite things about Treehouse is happy hour! Pitchers are cheap and fun to share with friends!
