…Not the TV Series.
Not to be outdone by the trendy northern section of San Carlos, White Oaks has scored another home run of a dining establishment: The Office. Longtime San Carlos residents and real estate partners Dave Parks and Steve Hicks of Gateway Properties have been kicking around ideas on how best to utilize the extra space at their realty office at 1748 El Camino Real — why not do a restaurant? After all, this very address used to be home to the very popular San Carlos mainstay Paul Joes restaurant, and according to Dave and Steve, it has been a watering hole of some sort ever since San Carlos was incorporated.
Keeping it Simple.
In deciding what kind of fare to offer and what level of service to provide, they wisely chose to keep it simple. Rather than hassle with complexities of table service, you simply order your food at the counter, and grab a seat. They’ll bring it out to you when it’s ready. And the menu looks to be spot-on: Burgers, sandwiches, salads, and a few other choice specialties. And most important? It’s very affordable. The vast majority of their menu is under $10, and the most expensive menu item is only $12. They are clearly targeting the San Carlos family dining crowd, and they appear to have nailed it.
Great Amenities, Location.
They did an outstanding job designing this restaurant. There’s a huge patio area in front for outdoor dining, complete with three separate fire pits for those warm San Carlos summer nights. Inside, there are additional tables with and a full bar with multiple flat-screen TV’s. Can’t sit still? There’s even a “beer-friendly” bocce ball court on the side alley. It’s a clean, classy place that’s perfect for White Oaks families who want a great, affordable dining experience that’s within walking distance from their home.
Although they haven’t had an official grand opening yet, they’ve been open on a “soft-open” basis for a week or so just to work out the kinks that every new restaurant faces. Smart move, because I think the newest addition to White Oaks will be a smashing success. So be sure to check it out this weekend!
