Pub Food

Takoda’s

This weekend we went camping in the Three Sisters wilderness area, and while we did our fair share of hotdogs and smores, we decided to go out to lunch in “Rainbow” Oregon.  We thought it would be appropriate to take the boys to lunch in “Nimrod”, Oregon but there were no restaurants there.  So we ended up at Takoda’s. It was actually pretty good. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, they have a pretty good beer selection and cocktail list, very kid friendly, with a gift shop that has everything you don’t need but want to buy anyway (lots of candy and a great jelly belly selection).  We ordered burgers and Ruebens, and everything was very good. The service was great, everyone there is really nice, and Takoda’s is conveniently located next to the only grocery and gas station within a good distance!  Two thumbs up for Takoda’s!

IBU

So we finally made it to the IBU. It used to be an Italian restaurant, a burger place, the Melting Pot, and so on. This place is awesome for families. Kids can be as loud as they want and nobody will hear them. They’ve got TV screens all over the place which the kids become glued to letting the adults have a little time to talk. The beer selection is vast, and frankly, much to our surprise the food is pretty good! Aidan got the elk burger which he devoured, Lolo got the “What Burger” which he ate half of, which is good for Lolo – it was a giant burger (I wish i had gotten it). I got the lamb burger, which was great, but not nearly as exciting as the “What Burger”. The dudes gave it a thumbs up and we will return. If you have a large crowd with a large appetite this is the place to be. Oh, and the service was great too!
