Hidden Steak Sandwich or Similar Food on the (Mid) Peninsula

My Grandma recently got out of the hospital after a long stint. She lost a bunch of weight and we are trying to fatten her up. She is a sucker for a great burger or steak sandwich.

The family goes out every Friday. There are 3 Hounds, Grandma (who will eat anything, even if she doesn't like it to please others) and 2 Non-hound types. The family has been going to the same dozen restaurants for years and we are looking for somewhere new...hopefully with a great steak sandwich.

In recent rotation we have Bucks in Woodside, Bankok Bay, Gambardellas, and Izzys. Although Bucks is fine, I am not wow'ed by it, and the others are just the "usual" places, except Izzy's which I was not pleased with, even for the "value" of it. (The steak sandwich at Buck's by the way, looked nice.)

I am tired of these usual places and am looking for some Hound advice.

So the parameters are that the place has to be nice (not fancy, but no dives) and quiet enough for 2 grandparents in their 80s, have a good steak sandwich, and a bonus would be a great Louie salad (Grandpa's favorite). For an idea of what she likes, Grandma used to love the burgers and steak sandwiches at the Harbor House at Pete's Harbor. The likes it when either comes on a sour dough roll. Driving distance isn't too far. San Mateo would be pushing it and further than Atherton is out of the question. (These are not my travel limitations, just the "comfort zone" that the Grandfolks travel in.)

Any ideas Hounds?

Thanks in advance from me (and Grandma!)
