Amazing how a cheeseburger can be as mediocre as those sold by this place. Bland, boring and a task to finish eating. One was definitely enough.

I hope Jeffreys is not planning to move on. It’s a welcome staple in our community for all ages. I’m not opposed to developments, I’d just hate to see something that’s such an active part of our community close.

This project is located a very short walk from the Caltrain Station and on El Camino, which has many buses. It seems very small for the site. More appropriate would be a plan for 6 stories (or more) and much more housing. Menlo Park and all other communities need to build more housing and this is an ideal location for a larger project.

The proposed design is not consistent with the more rustic/earth tone designs of the Safeway shopping center and new Stanford office buildings on El Camino. I have a strong negative reaction to the design in the photo. Please keep the height limit at 4 stories.
Also, couldn't Jeffrey's be offered space in the new building or the developer support a different downtown Menlo Park location for them?
