Just a few miles from Astoria, Oregon, and a fun ride on a motorcycle – with a grid bridge and lots of curves – is the Big O in Olney.

OK, there's not much more to this southern hamlet on 202, but this general store, bar and eatery makes up for not having neighbors or bling.

We stop for a drink or bite on our rides, and are never disappointed.

The drinks are dandy, the food just fine (especially the tacos on Taco Sunday). There is inside and outside eating, and weird outdoor lawn games when summer hits.

This is a great bar with house cat, fire pit, nice outdoor area for eating/drinking/smoking and lots of land around to keep from disturbing the neighbors.

The decor is eclectic and fun. Witness the wooden bird on top the chainsaw with only one leg. Check out the photos in the bathroom.

Yes, they sell and pump gas (Oregon means someone has to do it for you), but the limited menu they offer is tasty and the smiles are free.

Oh, yes, and many times. a groovy cat graces you with his presence. Very cool place and good times.

Olney, Oregon is located 10 miles from the center of Astoria out Hwy. 202 towards Jewell. The Big O Saloon is attached to the community grocery store and gas station, which hasn't changed for 50 years. The menu is small (bar food, burgers, etc) but good. It has a woodsy country feel to it with a pot belly woodstove keeping the place cozy warm. Loggers, fisherman and hunters love this place, as do the Hood to Coast crowd as it is close to an exchange point and the Big O serves cold beer. This is a fun place if you are looking for a fun country adventure. If you have a group, they will come "to town" and pick you up in their "bus".
