What place is this?

On Highway 97 in Oregon maybe 1 -2 hours north of the Calif. border is a roadside restaurant that I lost the name of. It was a large timber frame hall with western memorabilia, elk antlers, etc. all over the walls and ceilings and rafters. Also there was a very large Avon bottle collection in several glass cases. This was all interesting to wander and look at while waiting for our lunches. Now I gotta tell you the Chili Burgers were to DIE for. Best in my life. Do any of you know this place? Can you please put a name on it for me?

63Air and Ga501, fellow Maid Rite fans! We had one for years in our little North Missouri town of Trenton, and our kids grew up thinking a great lunch out was only to be had at the Maid Rite, along with a tall bottle of COLD Pepsi, and for a special occasion, a big slice of the owner's wife's homemade pie. Whenever we travel north to Minnesota, we usually seek out a midwest Maid Rite for the trip up or down. I can make a good one, but it's never quite the same. Thanks for the memory, ~G

Thumbs up Sheppard House / Americus, Georgia

Stop in and say Howdy to one of our own, Kelly & Davis !

If 'n ya'll down roun' Plains, GA....... Jimmy Carter country, be sure to get to the next town over, Americus and stop in for lunch with Kelly & Davis, and their neighbors at a buffet that is unbeatable !

Like Pork ribs ? These things are more like slabs of smoked shoulder, sweet, juicy and lean ! Down home southern cookin', made with love !

Lot's of country favorites, and incredible deserts too. Make sure you get there early, cause I ain't exaggerating when I tell you they line up right to the door at the noon hour.

Seek out Davis' Dad too for a local history lesson. ( he'll be the guy with the big proud smile )

Nice folks, everyone will make you feel at home and EXCELLENT food amid pictures of Airstreams and memories of A/S rallies on the walls..... don't be surprised to see yourself up there !

I'll be back !

Believe it or not... Pierces isn't the best in VA.

53FlyingCloud and I found a place in Smithfield called "Smokin' Joes" - it's a true dive but OMG the barbecue is wonderful. It's on the main drag through town, about a mile off the bypass. You have to look for it or stick your nose out the door and smell. Not that Pierces isn't good, but this place has a slight edge.

The best food ever cannot be bought, it is made by my Mother. My Mom is without a doubt the worlds best cook. This weekend she made my favorite dish of all time... Rolladine(onion, pickle, and some secret spices rolled up in flank steak then cooked all day in a hunters gravy), Spatzla(a egg noodle that is formed in a press), red cabbage, and garden salad. This is a very traditional German meal, no one can make it as good as my Mom. My German Mom cooks such a good Thanksgiving dinner that Betty Crocker herself came by and begged my Mom to teach her how to cook. Unfortunately for all of you, she does not do short order.

Whenever you're in downtown Phoenix and want the country's best pizza, you have got to try Pizzaria Bianco. I don't recall who officially voted them the best but it sure p***ed off alot of New Yorka's. I do know why they received that vote though because it is truely the best I have ever had. They only make six kinds and they are all a personal pizza. They grow their own herbs right outside plus bake their own small bread sticks. Their shop is a converted blacksmith shop from the early 1920's that was moved to downtown in the Heritage Square along with other old homes of the same era. The wait is about 45 minutes for the first wave of people because the place only seats about 30 at a time. They open at 5pm but the old doctor's house next door that serves as a pub, Bar Bianco, opens at 4pm. Go on in, get yourself either a local microbrew or a glass of wine and enjoy the quaint atmosphere. You'll need to get in line at the pizza place around 4:20 to 4:30 though or you might not make the first wave. They only take reservations for 6 or more. You won't regret your experience.

Man, now I'm hungry.

63air, you're right about Maid Rite - Ben's a Rock Island native, and he has me hooked on the Maid Rites. I could eat my way through the Quad Cities, but my favorite might be the Iowa Machine Shed out in Davenport.

And for those passing through St. Louis - don't forget the Route 66 custard and concrete legend, Ted Drewes'.

Alumatube said "The Bon Ton cafe in La Grange, TX (near Austin) was great, with WONDERFUL bread. I don't know if they are still open, though--anyone know?"

I think the kids inherited the Bon Ton, moved it off it's great old-time location just off the La Grange, TX square to a much larger new / fancy location out on the side of Hwy 71. I think it eventually flopped - the quality wasn't there.

The Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls, Texas (Hwy 281) is known for their pie and is still a real Texas tradition.

The Blanco Valley Cafe (locally called "The Bowling Club") in Blanco, TX (Hwy 281)is also one of the few non-chain, non-cookie cutter cafe's left in Texas. Located just off the square, with a large parking in the rear.

Oh, lemme think. When we go on vacation, we're always in great need of a good Navajo taco!

Mexican Hat, AZ, trading post restaurant. (Mexican Hat only has a couple of buildings, so it isn't hard to find!) Easy RV parking.

Tsegi Canyon, AZ, Anasazi Inn restaurant. Easy RV parking.

Tuba City, AZ, Tuba City Trading Post. The trading post is up on Main Street (off the main highway), and the restaurant next door has really good Navajo Tacos. Easy RV parking across the street.

Cameron, AZ, Cameron Trading Post. The restaurant is in the back. Parking lot can get congested, but there is ample room for RVs.

Our favorite roadside spots? First, get off the interstates. Driving the byways, plan your route to pass through small burgs around 7-8am, noon, or 5-6 pm. Cruise the main drag and side streets, looking for packed parking spaces. Zero in on the cafe that is nearest to the most cars and you've found great eats. This often works well on the edge of towns too. BUT, off the interstates. Not exactly GPS, but this game almost always works for us. Locals know where to go, so follow and feast! This is just about the only way to taste regional American cooking today, in our opinion. And it's still worth searching for ~G

Ah, durn, I forgot one place:

Twin Bluffs Cafe, Bluff, UT. Great Navajo Tacos!

Also, my dearest wife reminded me that the Navajo Tacos at Mexican Hat, AZ trading post restaurant are just so-so. It's mainly just a funky place to stop if you're hungry.
