Food and Drink
Here is our take on some of the many local spots.
Good beer, great gathering place. They did a great job blending the outdoors and the indoors. About a six minute walk.

This is unique. It is a place where food carts surround a covered seating area. Choose from about half a dozen carts and eat in the dining area which sells craft beers. Our favorite cart is the red one that has hamburgers and hot dogs. Best burger in town. its old fashioned thin patty and makes a puddle on your plate. About eight blocks, less than 10 minute walk.

I think we eat there once a week. Favorite dishes include Spicy Fried Chicken (its not hot spicy but it is not low sodium) and and Spicy Pork Noodles. Go early to avoid a long wait. Fifteen minute walk or short bike ride.

Ride the bikes across the footbridge at Columbia Park and and keep going straight to Delaware and turn right. Or a fifteen minute walk. Great pizza, Cubano sandwiches, salads and more. Thursday night is burger night. Good deserts too. Probably consistently the best food any where.

One of the best Thai restaurants in Bend (although the quality has not been consistent) and reasonably priced. I always get the Curry Basil Noodle and Lisa gets the fried rice dish with Dungeness crab. Downtown, approx 20 minutes walking.

i think the second best pizza in town and by far the best for your budget. Its a chain where you have them custom make your pie and/or salad. We split a pizza and salad and eat for less than about $15 for two. Twenty-two minute walk.

Part of the McMenamins group of great properties. Its a wonderful place with multiple bars and nooks and crannies to explore. Indoor and out door seating and hang our spots. Great music there and often times free and starting at 7 PM. Never really figured out how to make good beer and food though.
