Best place to just have a good time!
Motown Monday's at the Broadway Grill.


Best place for an unusual meal at a moderate price: Mingalaba (try the tea leaf salad)
Best place for unusual (and cheap) food: Tea Plus Noodle (the prawn salad is wonderful)


(And both of the above offer gracious service to customers, too!)


Best place for a taste of the east coast: Philly Cheesteak on California Drive near Oak Grove.


Stella Alpina Osteria is just AMAZING! Not to be missed!

I agree - Best Chinese Food choice: Hot Wok.


How about a good Lobster?


Not a restaurant, but you should check out New England Lobster in South San Francisco. We always get great lobster there!

Lots of information on Yelp:



I agree that Sam's is a great value. In fact, here's a link to an article posted on the examiner.com. Read it and then satiate those salivary glands and go visit:



It's not in Burlingame, but the Lobster Shack in Redwood City is a great spot for lobster.. Flown in daily from Maine..


Thanks Laura, I went there on your recomendation.
Lobster Shack is Great!


I've always enjoyed it.. Glad you did too!

Not necessarily a "best of" - but I just found out there's a alternative, new way to spread the word within the Burlingame community -- via Facebook. One benefit is you can become a "fan" and then have the freedom to create your own posts on the "wall". Here's a link to the site:

One other follow up on the City of Burlingame's new Facebook page: Not only can you post on their "Wall," but there is a separate "Discussions" page on which one can initiate "New Topics."


This is not 'Best Of', either, rather the opposite. Has anyone been by the new BevMo store lately?-- the sign is gargantuan- Am I understanding correctly that the signage allowed correlates to the square footage of a store and any other signage they have?? 'Not sure, but that seems odd-

As classy as that Walgreens store is looking just across the street- the big red BevMo sign really detracts ('screams out' is probably a more accurate description), particularly at the entrance of that street.

BEST signage award?? Well, Morning Glory boutique has an attractive one. Check out their elaborate window displays throughout the year, too.

Best Indian restataunt: Roti's!!!!


Definitely....had the okra side dish (Bhindi Masala) last night with dinner and everyone loved it.
