I've got 2 new restaurants to tell you about.
Whiskey Creek Barbeque & Grill
Last night we decided give this new place a try. It's been only open a couple of months and it's located on Whiskey Creek Rd (along the 3 capes scenic route). It's only a 15 minute drive from Sandlake Country Inn on your way to Netarts.
The decor is Texas BBQ and quaint. Our waitress was very warm and hospitable and gave us great service. I had the BBQ pork ribs dinner. Their dinners come in 2 sizes, regular and Texas. We decided to get the Texas size so we would be sure to have enough to take home with us for the next days lunch. Ha! There was so much food, I'm sure that even the regular size would have given us enough to take back with us! The ribs had great flavor, but frankly were a little tough for me...next time I'll try the brisket or sausage. You get several choices of sides with your dinner and on the waitress' recommendation I chose the onion rings and coleslaw. Both were wonderful. Ron had the brisket and it was juicy and tender. His sides were fresh homemade french fries and cowboy beans. He gave a thumbs up to both of those.
Their prices are very reasonable with sandwiches in the $7.50-$10.50 range and huge dinners in the $17.00-$20.00 range
We're looking forward to going back to try more!
Ben & Jeff's Burgers and Tacos
We haven't tried this brand new place out yet, but the buzz around town is we're going to be in for some good food. Ben & Jeff's Burgers and Tacos is located in Pacific City, right next to the Pelican Pub. It's a fabulous location and will be a great alternative to the Pub which gets insanely busy and tends to be pricey for pub food. The menu is just as the name says...Burgers and Tacos. Nothing on the menu is more than $6.00 A place like this is definitely much needed in Pacific City. Just a few feet from the beach and Haystack Rock, it would be fun on a sunny day to take your burger & tacos with you, get your toes in the sand and enjoy the amazing view of Haystack Rock.
We're looking forward to trying their food and wish them a lot of success!
