Our orders came up quickly, thank goodness, and we barely had time to admire the quaint Oregon historical decor before we set in. The bread was very fresh, soft and chewy, and the meats were consistent and tasty, and the ham was especially nice and tender. The six inch sandwiches were generously filled and the fries were decently portioned, though I couldn't tell a difference in taste or texture between the garlic fries and beer battered fries. The a jus served with the french dip was somewhat salty, and likely from a mix.
The kids' meals were also large portions and most places would consider a sandwich for children to be about half what my kids were served. I noticed several people ordering the cup of soup, which seemed a little overpriced for the size, but later that evening my friend Ryan wrote a sonnet about the broccoli cheese soup so maybe all those diners know something I don't! We'll definitely be returning and I can't wait to give the soup a try.
