Small restaurant, stand in line to order & food brought to your table. Quick turnaround. Large menu selections. I have never had a bad meal there and have been going since 1986.

We enjoyed our experience at the diner. Friendly service. Burger was tasty- we split because they are huge!

My Reuben sandwich was big and prepared perfectly. The halibut sandwich was excellent according to my wife and the hamburger that my uncle had was nice and juicy as hamburgers should be. The sandwiches will definitely fill you up. The french fries are pretty good too.

We had not been to Pilot Butte Drive in this year so we tried it for lunch a few weeks ago. My husband and I both had the halibut sandwich and shared a chocolate shake. The shakes come with the tumbler so are plenty big enough to share. The sandwiches were large and we also shared an order of onion... More

Heard lots about the burgers. They sadly disappointed. Buns were crumbly and old. Burger was over cooked and lacking flavor. Was very excited to try this place and it didn't live up to the hype. Nothing to say about service because we didn't have much. Would try again hopefully a better experience.

We both ordered the big burger with different toppings. When they came, my girlfriend couldn't stop laughing. It was more food than she could eat for 2 meals. Mine was good to the last bite. Love everything about this experience. Our trip to Bend wouldn't be complete without a trip here. HOORAY!

Always great food, huge portions. Sometimes can be a short wait for a table. Great food at a great price.
