Antonio's Nut House
The Nut House is dark and somewhat dirty, with peanut shells all over the floor. It has pool and a jukebox, and serves decent Mexican food.
The Dutch Goose
Another dimly-lit bar with the names of Stanford students carved into every table. Try the deviled eggs.
Nola serves South American and Pacific Rim-style food in addition to its bar area.
The Oasis Beer Garden
The Oasis has cheap pitchers and features great food, like hamburgers and pizza.
The sign above the door reads, "Cheap food, warm beer, lousy service."
