P1020443We did manage to venture out of Sunriver a few times. Each time we left we headed over to Bend, Oregon.  We ate at three of the restaurants there. The only ones worth mentioning are this one Deschutes Brewery and Spork.

Boy was the food here good, but the wait for a table was an hour!  Which wasn’t as bad as our disappearing waitress! I can see after having the food why people are willing to wait so long to get in. I literally cannot wait to eat here again.

P1020440BBQ CHICKEN AND BACON SANDWICH – Tangy, smoky BBQ sauce, bacon chutney, jalapeƱo jack cheese, shaved red onions, and brown sugar chipotle aioli on a potato bun. $13. This was the best chicken sandwich I’ve ever had. 

These next two photos are of the kid’s meals.


We decided to go with two desserts because I really wanted the one with peanut butter, but my daughter is allergic. The solution get her a dessert and then the peanut butter pie for the rest of us! P1020442
