In Pendleton, Oregon, you might want to try the”Main Street Diner’ or take a brief detour and try the” Oasis ” in Milton-Freewater, Oregon. Both restaurants are reviewed on this site.
The Travelin Man
If you spend the night in Boise and are in need of a breakfast stop, I really enjoyed my visit to http://www.goldysbreakfastbistro.com Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro. It is right in downtown, but parking was not a problem on a weekday morning.
The stack of huckleberry pancakes was absolutely LOADED with fresh huckleberries.
Not ever having had huckleberries before, I asked our server what they were like and she was kind enough to bring me out a small sample, as well. I can only describe them as a cross between a blueberry (size and shape) and a blackberry (taste). I really enjoyed them, but others find them to be an acquired taste.
I did also have some of the smoked chicken/turkey apple sausage as a side and some locally roasted coffee, which seemed to be a big deal to the local folks!
I need some advise for an upcoming road trip I will be taking from Omaha to Pdx. We will be taking I-80 and ending up on I-84. We will be passing through cities such as Lincoln NE, North Platte NE, Salt Lake City UT, Boise ID, Cheyenne Wy, etc. Any suggestions would be awesome!!
Stanich’s in Portland. One of my cornerstone burgers in the USA.
In North Platte, get thee to The Depot, 520 N. Jeffers St. Steak and ribs are AWESOME. The potato au gratin is amazing.
Funny thing about the Super 8 in NP,where we stayed – when asked where to go for a good steak, they recommended Whiskey Creek, which turned out to be a chain. Good thing we did some research and found The Depot. Spent our $ in town and had a memorable meal. Asked local bartender at the restaurant why a motel would make such a suggestion and he had no idea. Only thing we can figure is that the local Super 8 gets a kickback from the Whiskey Creek folks…
Further down the road in Ogallala is another great steak house in the Best Western motel, right off the interstate, The Golden Spur Steakhouse.
Golly Moses, how I love Nebraska!
If you were to avoid Cheyenne and take US 26 west, you would come across The Lunch Box in Guernsey, WY where you will get a fantastic, true roadfood breakfast. But I can see that would be out of your way; had to plug it anyway since the memory of it is still fresh in my mind after 3 weeks.
Omaha to Portland via I-80 to I-84
