burgers in Menlo Park

There’s a new spot for burgers in downtown Menlo Park where the meat is tasty and the atmosphere refined. LB Steak is now offering a burger-centric lunch menu Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 2:30 pm. The burgers are made with a proprietary blend of house-aged New York, rib eye and tenderloin cuts of beef. There are shakes and floats to complement.
