Bucks of Woodside?
I've read the older posts, but there's nothing recent. Is this the kind of place where I can drop in without a reservation on a Sunday evening, fairly early, without a problem? And is the food still good? Anything in particular I should order? I really want to try the Village Pub, but it's too expensive for this excursion.
This is a famous diner with standard average diner food. If you are a foodie, i would not recommend this place. Is ok to meet for business breakfast or lunch.
Sunday evening shouldn't be a problem-and if it is busy there is always the bar where they will serve you dinner. The food is very mediocre though, there's nothing I would specifically recommend. The Village Bakery in the same shopping complex serves dinner and is better.
If I were down that way I'd want to try the new lobster place in the Ladera Shopping Center in Portola Valley. I also have a soft spot for Mike's; it's not great but it's better than Buck's.
Okay, forget Buck's. Maybe I'll wait till I'm in the area on a weekday afternoon and try the pub menu at the Village Pub. (They apparently don't offer it on Sunday.) Or the Woodside cafe. I'm having fun exploring towns I've never visited -- or haven't for a long time -- after trips down to Palo Alto. So far I've "done" Mountain View and Menlo Park, using tips from this board. I wanted to try Woodside today, but didn't make it. Did have a nice dinner at Nola, though.
