Click here for review of BiGFOOT Bar and Grill
Good news Salem, Bigfoot is here. I'm happy to report a sighting of the legend along south Commercial Street in front of the old Grand China restaurant. Bigfoot Bar and Grill owners are hoping this wood statue of the hairy primate attracts attention to their new eatery opening in mid October. Eat Salem readers will be happy to know that this great pond front location didn't turn into a Denny's or another Taco Bell. The building is going to be split in half with cheesesteak chain Charley's Grilled Subs opening at the beginning of October. Inside the Bigfoot half, are carved wood tables and stools, a rock waterfall and outdoor seating. The owner gave me a quick tour of the new restaurants and figured out that I'm the Eat Salem guy. I didn't give him my name, but he says they are aware of the blog since we posted the pictures of the vacant Grand China restaurant. I'll have to work on my disguise and show up at an unsuspecting time. One question I forgot to ask on my tour was about their claim of having "World Famous Burgers." When I did a google search of Bigfoot Bar and Grill, there isn't any mention of hamburgers. Where do they get their claim of being "World Famous?"
According to oregonbigfoot.com Sasquatch has been seen 25 times in Marion County since 1970.
