Stopped in for lunch. Wow! There are so many collectibles to look at. The antique Flea Circus was a first for me. The interior is definitely worth going to see at least once. We split a BLT a bowl of clam chowder. The BLT was good along with the ample serving of fries. The clam chowder was just OK. The... More

We were taken here by our cousins, Its their local bar/eaterie. Very relaxed, good food, good service reasonably priced. Loads of great memorabilia to look at. Don't leave without having a good look around. Some really interesting stuff.

Great burger. Drinks, don't order a margarita as if you don't request a non sweet margarita you will get one light on the tequila and heavy on the mix. Also, the waitress was really intent on getting us to leave at 3. Sorry, but why rush people who are eating?

A group of us gathered at Buck's of Woodside for dinner before attending a show. Buck's is easy to find; the GPS took us right to the front door. The interior decorations are eclectic but much neater than the burger dives I frequented when I was much younger. It has a kind of antiseptic feel to it like a chain... More

Meeting place for science, medicine, academia, venture funds, Ground zero for early start ups before social media. Very casual, slightly dumpy bar, cafe, joint for local VCs, movers and shakers, students, and Mongols. Go during the week. Weekend cyclists stop between Stanford and Half Moon Bay. Can be mobbed in good weather. Drinks good, food and service variable depending on... More

Breakfast is good, lunch and dinner so-so. VCs and Silicon Valley execs hang out there because their ranches and estates are minutes away. Prices to match. $12.50 for a spinach salad and $13.50 for a basic burger and fries? Yikes. But go there often and you will see stuff on the walls and ceilings that are theatre-of-the-bizarre. Very entertaining.

Buck's is a blast. While the food is standard type diner fare, perhaps with a little more creativity, the memorabilia here is quite a hoot. We were met by a friendly host who seated us quickly and we were served quickly as well. We had a reasonably good meal but the best part came after the meal. We got up... More

Whether you go to Buck's to be entertained by the wall decor (look for the stuff frog playing the upright piano), your friends and family or the awesome staff - you will never be disappointed. The food is "like home" goodness, delivered with a smile and some of the best commentary ever. I have had breakfast and dinner here with... More

Wait time was 45 minutes for a party of 5 for Sunday lunch...pretty much worth it, too. Probably half the appeal is the decor: funky, fun, lots of mementos decorating the walls and ceilings. Food was good...not amazing, but we didn't try everything. Very pleasant service and relatively fast given the crowd.
