I have been to this Bar on & off for the past 7 years, first it was Bud Morans and then Teddy B's but since it has now changed to Route 92, I have been a regular. All these reviews seem to talk about the owner. No one ever mentions the great drink prices and happy hours they have almost everyday. The new owner has done such a great job cleaning up this place. So what if he is a COP and his COP friends come and visit. All it means, is that it is a much safer place for both men and women. Not only is the owner extremely nice and generous to his customers, he makes sure no crack heads or drunks bother other people in the Bar (they usually get kicked out). Once people come to this bar, they tend to become regulars and appear to have a great time. Friday and Saturday nights have now become my favorite nights because it has many more people than it has ever had the past several years. The bartenders are not only super nice but they are very attractive. They also talk to you and make you feel very comfortable. If you are into having a nice relaxing time at a neighborhood bar with very awesome drink prices, you must stop by and see this place for yourself. my guess, is that you would come back. As for the music, I have seen some people get upset about how the owner controls the music but it is not for himself, it is to keep the good mood going strong. If the music is not controlled, some idiot plays some gothic gross heavy metal stuff that drives people out the door. So I give the owner props for playing awesome music when he is there. One down fall at this bar, is the parking, besides that you will find this bar very enjoyable!
Just to say quickly, this little gem is a great neighborhood place to go and meet up with friends. They have a daily Happy Hour from 4-7 with drink prices that cannot compare to any other bar that I have ever been to and the beautiful bartenders are always friendly and seem like they are happy to see you. You can also watch your favorite football teams on Sunday all day for the owner just added a new NFL package to his four different screens while enjoying Happy Hour from 11-6; the Bloody Mary's are incredible! All of this in an intimate setting which also hosts great music daily, a pool table, a dart board, and a little area in the back for those of you who enjoy a cigarette with their cocktail. One more little bonus is the well-known Metal Monday Evening hosted by this fabulous bartender Kenny. He can pour a mean cocktail and yes, there is plenty of your favorite metal music accompanied by a lovely arrangement of videos played on a big screen. Oh...almost forgot that this is one of the ONLY bars in San Mateo that opens at 6:00 a.m. so if you have a hankerin' for an early mornin' wake-up call, go on down and have a stiff one poured by Phun Phil or German John. Once you go in you might find yourself staying all day long. Cheers!
I stumbled upon Route 92 almost by accident. I stopped in for a quick beer and found myself staying for hours after meeting several friendly people. The bartender was awesome and I just had an overall great time. I stopped in a few days later and the same bartender remembered my name and what I drank. To me that is great customer service! Ever since then I have frequented Route 92, and the place gets better and better! Pool table, darts, the internet jukebox....all good stuff. The new owner is great, he has really cleaned up the place from what I understand. All of the bartenders are amazing!!! It doesn't matter what time of day or day of the week you go, you will always be greeted with a smile. Be prepared to meet some really friendly people as well. After reading a previous review about the owner, I was shocked, because I have never seen that side of him. He is an awesome guy and very, very respectful. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a drink. My guess is that you will come back time and time again!
