Little Store - Woodside, CA - Guest Review

My good friend Joe Fantuzzi visited the little store in Woodside and had this review.

The Little Store is a historic site in Woodside California in what has now become an residential area. It may have served as a grocery store, hitching post, saloon or all of the above for travellers on buggies or horses going over the mountains to the pacific ocean. It's decor is decidedly western, with red and white checkered tableclothes, black and white photos and other items from the old west.

We had a lovely waitress that greeted us with energy and confidence. She boasted about the Little Store food in a sweet and polite way. The eclectic menu for a western fare had grilled meats and fishes, an assortment of salads, appetizers like quesidilas and burritos and of course many burger sandwich combinations. Nick ordered the Hamburger sandwich for $7.95 and I ordered the Pulled Pork sandwich for $11.95. We accompanied the meal with drinks, Nick had lemonade and Joe had a Fat Tire amber ale.

The hamburger was ordered medium rare, and came quickly with a sesame seed bun, 'best' fries, and a side of lettuce, sliced tomato, cucumber and red onions. The meat was juicy and tender, and didn't need any salt or pepper to make it perfect. Nick added ketchup on the top before sinking his teeth into it. Before 2 minutes passed, the burger was nearly gone, which is not advisable in burger eating decorum. Nick's enjoyment of the burger sans any cheese or sides other than ketchup, let's him rate the pure burger experience at a 4.5 out of 5.0.

All in all, a friendly atmosphere, family ready but with sophisticated fare for all to find the meal they wish.
