NOT A PLACE TO GO TO TALK TO SOMEONE

Had breakfast here with a high school buddy from the class of 1956. A nice breakfast with a very good portion of food.

Whenever in Umatilla or Hermiston I always stop at Chuckwagon. Food is excellent, staff is very friendly, deserts are to kill for.

Sausage was overcooked in deep fat fryer. Eggs were saturated in oil, potatoes very blonde and bland. Husbands burger was cooked passed well done.

The staff are very pleasant. This is a locally owned cafe that serves good old American food. They serve some of the best veggie burgers you will ever try--homemade from scratch. They also make amazing pies. Love this place for lunch.

I got there just in time to get into the middle of a birthday party for an 80+ year old regular and a waitperson. The owner played "Happy Birthday" on a plastic horn, we all sang,... More

They have the best bison and elk burgers west of the Mississippi! I sometimes get one elk patty and one bison patty. Double greatness and a whole lot healthier. The beef patty is still the best there is. Not in for a burger their other entrees are really treat also. Enjoy you meal with there salad bar for added pleasure.
