“The Cow Palace Burger meal consists of a double Angus patty, onion rings, bacon, sautéed onions, tomato, lettuce, mayo with BBQ sauce and a side of fries, and was added to our menu about four years ago in honor of the iconic arena and event center. Customers often reminisce about the circus and livestock animals parading up Geneva avenue, beginning across the street from the restaurant, up to the Cow Palace Arena”. Although the parade of animals no longer takes place, we’re neighbors and our connection to the Cow Palace is undeniable”, shares owner, Vanessa Garcia. “Since we added the Cow Palace Burger to our menu, it was featured on Destination America's ‘United States of Bacon’ show, and has become one of our most popular items to order.”
