You know those easy-access, pocket-size menus from local restaurants, the ones all neatly displayed in their own custom racks?Well, they're now available on the Web.
Capitalizing on the popularity of their Menu Club business, the brother- and-sister team of Robert and Holly Hedayat--both Cal Poly grads -- have established MenuClub.com,a powerful custom search engine that uses the information available in the menus themselves, right down to particular dishes.
"We have access to the most accurate menus available," said Robert Hedayat, adding that the restaurant order on the site isn't arranged alphabetically like most listings, but changes according to recent updates so everyone gets the chance to be at the front. Other unique aspects of MenuClub.comare the lack of outside advertising and the fact that even noncustomer restaurants are listed, though at the back of the pack.
Currently MenuClub.comlists 13,710 restaurants and 66,221 dishes (plus 1,349 wineries and 1,729 wines) throughout California, and some of the restaurants also offer online ordering through the site.
