Limited menu but had a white sauce and shrimp pizza and it was great. Good craft beer and a Guitarist on the night we went. I recommend this place

I can't believe the owners of this place don't update the restaurant. It is good pizza, but the facility is looks like no one cares about it. the curtains are old and faded, the sign in front is broken and a coat of paint would really help too.

This excellent pizza place, a favorite for decades, got its start as a creative spot run by a Hungarian. He mastered the paprika tomato sauce with onions and stewed peppers topped with Hungarian sausage and cheese, aka the Budapest pizza. For a few months it was off the menu for some sad reason. It returned, made with what tasted like... More

Have ordered from here 4-5 times, and each time disappointed. But--they are convenient, well organized and there is something for everyone. If you want great, I can't imagine this is it--but it's good enough and much better than any of the safeway/costco options.

The pizza is straight up American with good chewy crusts, but the place is a dump. It's not even retro in an ironic way, it's just an embarrassment to Menlo Park. Spruce up or get out!

Applewood is a Menlo Park tradition that always ranks tops in the Pizza category. Good crisp crust, lots of cheese, and plenty of topping options make it a winner. Our favorite is the Menlo Combo, with a Greek-style salad and a draft beer. You may find trendier flavors of pizza, but not a better pie.

The Menlo Combo is a meat lovers delight, but the sourdough crust will get you every time. Local adult sports teams frequent the place after games and it's family oriented.

Order their pizza at least once a month. It's always excellent. Good crust and cheese. Try the margarita pizza.

Don't let the drab, 70's decor fool you. This is the best pizza around (sorry Amici's). Try the #17 Los Altos. My favorite pizza and one I try to custom order when eating pizza while traveling. No one makes it as good as Applewood so far.

Perhaps it is my taste, but I was thoroughly disappointed in the pizza we had here when we finally tried it. It has been around a long time and seems to be popular so we were expecting more. The pizza was luke warm, not sizzling hot, as if it had sat around awhile. The crust was huge and doughy and... More
