Great food and friendly staff, and you get to throw your peanuts shells on the floor, on the way to Sumas border crossing you really need to plan a stop here for the fantastic food and great hospitality.
Ribs are great, and the fresh baked yeast rolls are to die for.

Seaside, OR 503-738-9801
Restaurant in Long Beach, WA
Open from 7:30 AM to 2:30PM everyday, nice little restaurant breakfast served all day, Mike loves that. You can walk the town from this restaurant so have your meal leave your car and have a great walk.
Great little restaurant center of town, true taste Mexican flavor
709 First Ave. S.E.
Ribs Louisiana style, Pete at Pete's RV recommended this restaurant, the staff was efficient and made sure Mike's coffee cup was always full, the ribs however were not the best I have ever had but they were good. A large stuff baked potato and salad came with the meal
We went for Breakfast and as some of you know I love cheese Blintzes, we have been to many IHOP's in a lot of states and I have to say this one had Blintzes that were out of this world. Reminded me of New York. Loved them
The Bowpicker is a favorite of the locals and tourist, they fry Tuna as your fish and chips dish, and it is good, you eat outside on the picnic table, you can enjoy the atmosphere and the people you have lunch with or just pick some up and take back to your rig while you are in Astoria, they are right off the main drag and you can see them from the Maritime Museum.
There is a new restaurant opened about 4 weeks ago here and we were told it was great food and the prices are reasonable. After setting up the rig here at the park we all decided to try it out.
They have burgers and salads along with some fish sandwiches. The burgers where wonderful and tater tots which come if you choose instead of fries or you substitute with a salad. It is reasonable the price for our drinks and dinner was $23 before tip.
|Cannon Beach, OR
This Cafe is next to a Hotel in fact it is attached,
they have great coffee terrific breakfast and at a decent price. Cannon Beach is only 15 min. from Seaside
|Hawk Creek Cafe
Hawk Creek Cafe is just up the road north of the Neskowin RV
park in the town of Neskowin, they have great pizzas, sandwiches
and dinners. We ate there for lunch and the following week had
After eating walked around the back and got these photos, we were a long ways away from the beach and ocean, so the first photo taken has a lot of haze.
As you cross the Newport Bridge heading South the next turn to the right before the light, are several places to visit such as this Rogue Brewery. Of course it is beer, but also Gin and the restaurant serves all kinds of sandwiches and fish. Wasn't so crazy about the main dishes but the cheesecake is to die for. I love cheesecake and this rum one will make you want to take the whole pie home. It is so good as good if not better then a New York cheese cake.
|Chalet Pie House, Newport, ORA
Family Restaurant award top for the area, it is also a bakery
and the food was fine, not expensive about the same if you where
to go to IHOP, Denny's.
It is right on the coast Hwy, in the Safeway shopping center.
|Jackalope Restaurant 80400 HWY
111 in Indio,
great place to take friends and out of Towner's to Happy Hour. Not expensive if you go between 3 and 6 PM. Get there early around 3 if you can as it does get crowded.
|La Quinta, CA|
have found a Mexican Restaurant that serves hot and I mean plate
hot food. They are at 111 Hwy and Washington, 78480 HWY 111 in
La Quinta. The food is good, I can't call it great but if you
want to eat Mexican and not go to far from the RV park here is
one to go to.
|Here is a
Hamburger Joint, ah Restaurant, the Red Robin has the greatest
hamburgers I have ever eaten. They serve other items but they
are famous for their large and delicious hamburgers. When
Lindsey our waitress introduce herself with a friendly smile we
told her this was the first time we had visited a Red Robin, she
took our order, I order the Bacon Avocado with mayo, now let me
tell you, after ordering Mike showed me the calorie count Holy
Cow it was enough calories for two days of eating. But who's
counting if it is GOOD!! The General Manger come over
introduced himself, Dan Anderson, and after hearing this was our
first time, me telling him if it is good I would add him to this
page. He went to the cook and made sure we had a great
hamburger, I am sure they would be good even if he didn't, and
he served it, now how many times does have you seen a manger who
really cares, he is on the top of my list. They were so great
and large with steak fries (all you can eat). You won't be
eating the steak fries as the burger filled you and you will
want to finish it as it was so GOOOOD . I could not finish
mine, so go to a Red Robin close to you, and see what I am
talking about. They are at 30142 Haun RD in Menifee and there
is one in Palm Springs at La Quinta.
|In Tombstone try the O.K. Cafe Buffalo Burger, on Hwy 80 south to 10th right towards the old Tombstone Courthouse.|
|La Mesilla, NM has
one of the oldest restaurants in NM it is called La Posta, the
last time Mike and I ate there was in 1983, the food is still
great. And the town is wonderful to walk around after having
your meal. Billy the Kid gift shop was once a bar, and it was
also the government building and used as the state capital of NM
and AZ. You will love this restaurant and the walk around.
The Rusty Bucket in Hurricane, Ut is at
460 W State St
Hurricane, UT 84737
|they opened around the 1st of April and the food is homemade, we ate there on May 1st had spaghetti and meatballs, I must admit it was almost as good as my homemade dish. It was the first time I actually wanted too bring home the left over's. I know we will try this one again as the owner/manager Michele ,was very nice and made us feel at home. I would rate this one as a 8, clean very well managed and the service was great along with the wonderful food, the only draw back was I wanted desert and they did not have the homemade pies ready yet !|
They have live
entertainment on Friday and Saturday, for example there will be
a dinner special of Prime Rib for $13.99 on May 1st 09, along
with an Elvis impersonator.
Take a look at the rest of our trip to Utah
Washington the best Bread pudding in the USA
Saginaw's is right down Main Street in Elma, Washington. They make homemade bread pudding everyday and it is to die for. We have bought several people here & each have said that when someone tells them a good restaurant they are disappointed but not this time. You just have to go here for the Bread Pudding. Note as of 2012 Saginaw's has closed due to the economy we will miss this place as we loved the Bread pudding and the friendly staff.
