i have eaten here many times. The food is always cheap and just fine. I had never had a burger. Well, please don't ever have a burger here. It would be better purposes as shoe leather. thin, dry, over cooked and flavorless. This is a good wednesday night dinner. It beats most of the fast food options, but please do... More

I had teriyaki pulled pork. Sounded interesting since most pulled pork is BBQ. The teriyaki was salty and so was the pork. The combination created something so salty I couldn't really taste anything else. I was unable to finish my meal as a result. My wife had fried chicken and enjoyed it. Wish I could rate it a 2.5. Waitress... More

During the wait I had to ask our waitress where our food was and her reply rather curtly was it's coming. After the meal I asked to speak to... More

I've had lunch there twice. Burgers both time. Would recommend a burger. Menu had a lot of bbq items that looked great. Someone with us had mushroom soup and said it was excellent. Server said all soups are made fresh. I would like to go back after work for bbq and beer.

Portions are huge. Some long-time servers, short-staffed and a long wait our last visit. Eat there every other month or so. Often quite crowded.

We enjoy traveling the side roads along the main highways instead of driving in the traffic and have found some wonderful little hometown cafes along the way. Today we discovered the Wooden Nickel Pub and Eatery in Sublimity, OR. Sublimity is a small town, population 2600+, just east of Salem in the rolling foothills of the Cascades. The restaurant had...

Tripadvisor needs 3.5 stars. This place was open on a Sunday, on our drive back to Bend, so hey, that's very good. We were hungry. And the fish tacos were GOOD---more fish than anything else. And the Halloween decorations really do try to brighten up a dreary looking pub. The waitress was solo but incredibly efficient and plain ole nice.... More
