However, in La Honda itself (on HWY 84) there's an old place called Apple Jacks, across from the fire station. A cool old roadside bar/burger joint. Alice's is at the top at the intersection of Summit Road (HWY 35) and HWY 84. Both are classic stops.
Well now you got me wondering.....this place was an old shack -burger/bar like you said, and I remember one of those ling wood countertop things that you slide hockey pucks down, on salt. Don't know the name of that sport, obviously!
