Canyon Inn in Redwood City is a cozy place to have a burger and watch the March Madness. A last minute call from my burger buddy Mark, resulted in a trip to this out-of-the-way neighborhood joint. In the same vein as the Oasis, Dutch Goose or Alpine Inn, it has wood tables, lot’s of local sports memoriabilia.
I ordered the British Burger ($7.05) with Swiss cheese and bacon. Mark ordered the Patty Melt ($6.80). We also ordered fries ($3.60) and onion rings ($3.85). We took our number and took a seat.
In minutes we had our lunch. Like the Oasis, the burger is better than the sum of its parts. It comes with tomato, lettuce and mayo. The sesame bun was firm but not grilled. I guessed the patty to be a 7 oz. typical patty. The whole thing was excellent as a combo. Mark loved his patty melt.
The best item might have been the onion rings. They were big, crunchy coated and hot. The fries did not fair as well. They were coated and and kind of tasted like you would get at a chain, but they were hot.
