Beaverton, OR – Big Red’s Western Cafe (Yawn)

Big Red 3 PNG

A non-descript place serving non-descript food. I was there at 1PM on a weekday, and was the only one in the dining room for half my visit – then in came a father with three kids in tow. The only reason for my visit was I was wasting time waiting on an appointment, the place wasn’t a specific destination, so I didn’t have any preconceived notions about what I would be eating.

The attached bar, on the other hand, was hoppin’ for weekday noon, and had free peanuts to boot (I didn’t discover until I was leaving). My server went thru the motions of his job with zero enthusiasm.

I ordered a cheeseburger plain, which came with fries. Standard food service burger, standard food service fries. Burger and Diet Pepsi, $10, a little pricey for the environment and neighborhood. Glancing at other reviews online, they run hot/cold, depending upon one’s palate I guess. There are people that say the place has great Tex-Mex, others aren’t so generous, and call it plain awful.

Guess I’d land in the middle. It is what it is. And what it is, to me, is not worth returning to.
