Never eaten at Broadway Prime because it never looks very inviting and the Smoke Shop is beginning to look tacky but the journalist is right about the rest.

I miss the Elvis special (peanut butter and bacon sandwich!) at the old Towle's but it is still a wonderful place. Gerald is the funniest most knowledgeable wine connoisseur, and the writer is right on about the CBB.

Don't understand the last sentence though? Anyone know what the journalist is trying to say?


The guy who runs Broadway Prime used to work at House of Prime Rib in the city. It is really good.

I think the guy is saying there are many small businesses trying to make it work. Go out and spend some $$$$ at these places people and help keep the list of small businesses closing to a minimum. Shop Burlingame, Dine Burlingame - save gas and time.


As someone who lives closer to Burlingame Avenue, and only eats there, I'd love to have some hot tips on Broadway. My family loves Prime Rib, so maybe we will try the one you've mentioned. I have eaten a fair number of times at Cafe Figaro, it is also good, but what are some other places you would recommend? I just don't know what is there.

All this talk of food has made me hungry! Hope to see some of you this afternoon on the other side of the freeway at Taste of the Town!


Best little hamburger - Village Host Pizza. Like a hamburger should be, very good for lunchtime.

Also good for lunch and a home-made feel is Incredible Edible.

There is a shabu-shabu place I've heard is good but haven't tried yet. I don't know the name of it but is has a bronze metallic awning.


Good tips, thanks!


Juban is the metallic awning spot...and it's great..our "special occasion" place.


I've been in a lot of wine places around the U.S. and Weimax is truly a gem of Burlingame! It's really great to have such a wonderful place in town.

I have yet to dine at Towle's...


Towles is turning into our Friday night hang-out. Even if you don't like seafood, there are other delicious things on the menu. They often have live music from 8pm to 11pm., lots and lots of fun. I am so happy for the owners who have tried so hard and spent so much time and resources to make the place a success., it definitely is.

I would like to put a plug in for Tip-Top shoes, an old fashioned cobbler on Primrose a few doors down from Burlingame Avenue. Jack is the proprieter... he has been there for years and he does great work.

Rich Grogan

Love Tip-Top Shoes. He does great work, unfortunately this is a vanishing art.

For those folks, who are enviromentalist this is a great way to recycle your shoes.
