Visiting from Utah, our party of four wanted to eat lunch somewhere quintessentially "Eugene", and Cornucopia seemed to be the perfect choice. This location was closest and we felt fortunate to choose one with such a great outdoor patio, friendly staff and delicious menu options....It was hard to choose, but we ordered various burgers and drinks. Even though the patio wasn't full, we waited over 40 minutes for our food! When I asked the waitress about the delay, she told me they had only one cook in the kitchen working. UGH. When the food did finally arrive, it was yummy. I guess if you are laid back and in no hurry to eat, waiting this long is okay. I would probably return, maybe try another location with faster service on a Saturday afternoon.More

First time to visit this particular Cornucopia--it's very "Eugene", with a definite personality of its own! Fun, colorful, and offering great food! I loved the "Smuggler" burger, which, believe it or not, has a light crust of crushed coffee grounds, along with avocado, spicy cheese,...tomato---it sounded so very different, I just had to try it! And it was wonderful! The Reuben which my husband ordered was given a "2 thumbs up", and the onion rings and salads were also very good. We had such a good time, we left with tie-dye tshirts with the Cornucopia logo in the design, to bring home to Hot Springs, Arkansas. We definitely will visit again, next trip to Eugene.More

We usually come here for lunch 1-2 x per month. The last couple of times have been not great... slow service, inconsistent Covid 19 protocol adherence, not the beers we like. But last week, we got a shock when we saw their new prices! WOW!!...Quality has not improved, so why the hike? We will take this off of our lunch rotation.More

I ordered their Jeros Bacon Cheeseburger with fries to be delivered recently. This was the second time I've ordered online for delivery since Covid arrived. The food arrives nice and warm and tasty. The delivery people are always really friendly. I miss the days of...eating inside this establishment (which was always a pleasure), but it is still great to have their food on occasion. Highly recommended!More

We eat a plant based diet and are fortunate that Eugene has some good options for dining out. There are 2 Cornucopia restaurants and we frequent both establishments. The same food with different atmosphere and both are comfortable and welcoming places. Today we had the...Asian rice bowls with the best tasting tempeh around. They also feature this tempeh on several sandwiches. They also have a burger substitute which has good taste but too mushy for my taste. Our grandkids love the Mac and cheese and grilled cheese sandwich which is served with the crust cut off. Definitely a great place if looking for a great meal.More

Awesome little hometown eatery. Food and service was wonderful. Large portions and great prices. Had breakfast and was more then I could consume and that’s saying a lot. We want to come back and try out the beer sometime.

This review, while indicating my experiences with this place over the course of a couple years, has also still been the case for my most recent visit there, as well. Anyway, I've been to Cornucopia many times over the past few years with my grandfather,...and I always get the burgers. Said burgers are, typically, fantastic. The fries tend to be subpar, but if you're there for the burg, then it's not particularly problematic. That said, what is problematic tends to be actually getting your food, especially earlier in the afternoon, even if it's well after the lunch rush. I've had far too many times where we've sat for nearly half an hour to have our order taken, even when there's hardly any other customers in the restaurant. Mind you, it's clearly not because of the wait staff being particularly busy, considering how many times during this wait that they seem to idly chat with friends that stop by. Granted, if the wait for having your order taken is acceptable, waiting another hour or so for your food in those same circumstances isn't. My only other real complaint about the place would be how incredibly noisy it is when the place does have a substantial number of customers (can't hear the person across the table from you half the time), but that's not really the fault of the restaurant, rather than it just being the type of clientele that they try to appeal to. Seems to appeal more to the college crowd, I guess. So, in short, this place is great for a burger, but make sure your schedule is open, particularly if you're planning to eat there in the early afternoon, but if you like a more relaxed atmosphere where you can sit down and chat with an old friend or catch up with the family, then this may not be quite what you're looking for.More

Whomever does the hiring must be on point. Both Cameron and Stan are excellent at keeping an eye on things and making sure everything runs smoothly and the energy is up and positive. Cameron is super high energy and loads of fun. Stan possesses the...rare ability to remain alert, but calm and manage multiple situations, in a busy environment.. with a super cool demeanor. They are both excellent and their skills are highly impressive. The food is very good, and even the healthier options. such as the veggie burger are delicious (and you can have it custom made to your taste). The tater tots are perfection if you love them. They have good red wine choices, such as Brandborg and Juggernaut Cab at great prices, as well as a lower end house wine that is super affordable. There are 3 options for seating, and all of there servers are very hard--working and attentive. Some of them also take turns with taking orders, and Julian is very good at wearing both hats. The kitchen staff is hysterical, and it was fun to sit at the bar once and listen to the light-hearted banter between the wait staff and kitchen staff; they literally had me laughing out loud. The staff is great at seating you asap. Be cautious if you call for take-out, as they often get very busy and the wait time can be very long. Though I've never been there for any of the music, I can highly recommend them for the staff (especially Cameron and Stan), the veggie burger, tater tots, red wine and indoor/ outdoor seating options. The staff works super hard and they all seem to enjoy their jobs. Overall...great value, atmosphere and staff.More
