    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
