I recently switched jobs to work in Menlo Park and desperately need some good chowhound-y places to eat. I was able to cull a bunch of good recommendations near my old work in Oakland, so figured I might try my luck again.
These will mainly be lunch places so not really big on the fancy-shmancy >$30+ places, and quality of the food is the highest priority -- I love dives with tasty vittles :).
I figure if I'm willing to drive I can always hit up university ave. or castro st. in Mountain View, but I was figuring there's got to be some great hidden gems a little closer. Unfortunately I'm surrounded by mostly East Palo Alto, which isn't really known as a culinary mecca, but it'd be great if there was an awesome burrito place nearby (closest one I know is Tacos Guellense near Costco). I plan on taking the train to work as often as I can, so distance really counts :).
Thanks in advance!
