The Dutch Goose is one of the few remaining "neighborhood" burger joints remaining in the area. Feeding hundreds or so a night on hamburgers, cheeseburgers and (more recently) turkey burgers and salads, this institution truly packs 'em in during Stanford games and little league and soccer seasons. The food is OK and not outrageously priced, though they load up their burgers with so much you can barely distinguish the presence of meat, in my opinion. A major, life-changing event occurred a few years ago when they spruced up the interior (a little) and added French fries in lieu of tiny packets of potato chips. The fries are good, too. My personal recommendation for seating if you're a party of just one or two) is just inside the front door. You have the best view of the sports channels that are always on and you can also see first-hand a top short order cook at work--a remarkable feat that incorporates keeping 20-30 separate plates a-spinning. The "Goose" now has a full bar on the back deck, in all kinds of weather. I've sat next to celebrities, watched chugging contests, observed baseball and soccer kids get awards--it's an ever-changing confusion of a restaurant, but somehow, about 9-10 times a year, I find myself going there. They sell steamed clams as well as burgers, but I have yet to put my mark on those. And in fairness, they've added a lot to the menu that not surprisingly is directed right at soccer dads and moms.
