Togo’s is Now Open in Bend




Growing up in Corvallis Togo’s was my favorite sub shop.  I can remember being willing to fight the Oregon State University campus traffic for my favorite pastrami and swiss sandwich.  Now the same owners/franchisees of the Corvallis store have opened a place on the east side of Bend.  You can bet I will do my […]




Brickhouse Restaurant in Bend




  The Brickhouse restaurant has been on our list of places to eat since they opened their Bend restaurant a year ago.  We have never been to their Redmond restaurant but had heard good things about their food and service here in Bend.  They are located on Industrial Way looking south down the Deschutes River to […]




Bend Applebee’s: Should Have Known Better




  Actually, we did know better but we went to Applebee’s for dinner last night anyway.  Cold side dishes and poor service are the norm at Applebee’s in Bend and apparently throughout Oregon.  We know this.  But some times convenience and price out-weigh rational thinking.  Last night we thought we might get lucky so we took […]

Slick’s Que Company, Bend




  This past Friday evening (9/9) Becky and I had dinner at Slick’s Que Company in Bend.  We have driven past the Sister’s restaurant many times since it opened in June 2009 but never stopped to check it out.  The Bend restaurant opened in May 2011 on Revere where the Bend Fish Company was located.  We […]

  The Source Weekly has released their lists of the “Best in Central Oregon” as voted on by their readers.  There are a huge amount of categories that cover just about anything you could think of buying or eating in Bend and Central Oregon.  One glaring omission is the Best Realtor category.  Maybe it was just […]




Los Agaves Mexican Grill – Sisters, Oregon




We stopped and had lunch Friday (7/23/11) at Los Agaves Mexican Grill in Sisters.  I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in the door because the outside of the building doesn’t look like much but the inside of the restaurant was clean and tidy.  We ate on the patio in the shade of an umbrella.  […]




Del Alma Restaurant in Corvallis




I don’t normally post about anything that isn’t in Bend or Central Oregon but this past Friday evening Becky and I had the surprising pleasure of dining at Del Alma in Corvallis.  Our experience there definitely makes them worthy of a post. I had wanted to eat there since Kinn and Carolyn had opened the doors […]




10 Barrel Brew Pub




Seems like everyone’s favorite place to eat in Bend lately is 10 Barrel Pub.  Becky and I stopped by there for lunch yesterday.  Of course we ate outside on their big patio.  It was about as perfect a day for eating outside as you could have.  Bright sunshine but only about 70 degrees.  Fortunately it […]
