I usually go to the San Carlos location but wanted to try Menlo Park this time since I happened to be in the area.This location is much bigger. Outdoor seating is a plus but I guess we have covid to thank for that. Not complaining, ha.Service was great! We ordered a Reuben and goofy fries to share. They split the Reuben for us and served it on 2 plates without me having to ask. Very nice of them to do so. Above and beyond, if I do say so.Will definitely come back to this location.
