    Pool's a buck - use the quarter machine by the back table.

    Loud, crowded, smelly, and the darkest beer they have is Dos Equis. Not for me, but it's obviously a popular place. Of course, it was the closest bar in a mile walk from our hotel, so there is that.

    Palo Alto's tech solution for a dive bar. Grab some peanuts and order mexican food to tide you over. Pitchers can be cheaper than pints.

    It's a great dive bar. Techies and pool sharks. Bring cash unless you want to buy a few rounds, there's a $20 minimum for cards.

    Kelly is one of THE RUDEST people I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. Just because she is unhappy & sad doesn't mean she should take it out on her paying customers. Won't be going back.

    This is an awesome dive. Nuts on the floor type place. However, don't even go into a men's stall if you have to piss. Just wait for a urinal. Trust me.

    Diveish, but sadly not in an everyone there is missing at least 5 teeth and that dude's got a wooden leg and you're starting to wonder if they're pirates way. Joke signs, college/tech people, etc.

    Great for after work. Pitchers of beer, taqueria with decent Mexican food. Pool tables, lively atmosphere, generally good music. $3 margaritas at lunch.

    An excellent dive in bar. This is probably the only place in the US where you get to throw peanut shells around. There are a couple of pool tables that are always occupied and a Foosball table too.

    If you truly want to sense what it means by people saying that the owner TONY is an ASSHOLE just go there and test it for yourself. He looks like a pig, talks like a pig and acts like a pig!!!

    Want to play pool? Write your name on the board for challenge tables 1 & 2 (closest to the bar). Throwing down quarters during a game is rude! Or rent a table and play doubles with your friends.

    Solid prices. Best dive bar around Palo Alto. Not all the waitresses are so nice. The unlimited peanuts is a cool element

    The options for places with peanut shells scattered on the floor are limited around Page Mill, but you can satisfy that need here. Not exactly cheap, but it's acceptable for Palo Alto.

    What is there to say…it's Antonio's Nut House. They serve beer & bad food in a lame atmosphere. Many better dives to choose from on the peninsula (Zott's, Dutch Goose, etc). (1 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    It's one of the more down-to-earth bars in Palo Alto with a wide choice of beers. Don't be surprised when the peanut shells are thrown to the ground.
