Taxi’s Hamburgers

Last night we went to downtown Palo Alto to relax at Watercourse Way. We left our home a bit late, and it took us a while to get there, so we found ourselves with half an hour for dinner. Taxi’s Hamburgers looked like the sort of place we could get a quick bite.
Mike got a bacon cheeseburger, and he liked it well enough. He found it juicy, though not as juicy as burgers from Nation’s. He’d have it again.
I had their pulled pork platter, which included a pulled pork sandwich (in a hamburger ban), some veggies and your choice of fries or onion rings. The onion rings were a bit dry, but tasty enough. They’d been better with some ranch dressing, of course. I wasn’t thrilled with the pulled pork. It came with a side of a very generic bbq sauce. The pork itself was dry and tasteless.
The food came reasonably quickly.
The place itself tries to look like an old fashioned diner, with a lot of white tiles. You order at the counter, and a waiter brings your food and takes away your plates. They have self-serving soda machines and a potato bar. The food is a bit on the expensive side, it was a bit over $20 for what we had (including two sodas).
I’d probably go again if I was in a hurry, but I’d order a burger.
