Sage Country Inn

Reviews:
A gem tucked away on Monroe Street! Mike and Corrine have an incredible Bed & Breakfast Inn right in the middle of tiny Burns, Oregon. IF you happen to be going through, staying in, or "potentially" planning a trip anywhere East of Bend, Oregon or West of Boise, Idaho... you would not want to miss a stay here!! You couldn't ask for more gracious hosts or a more welcoming stay. The delicious home cooked popovers and amazing breakfast were one of the highlights of our stay. We stayed in the Western themed room with en suite and added on the small "kid" room for a nominal charge, allowing my cousin to get away from the noisy family reunion going on at my Grandparents house. The family history of the Inn is quite interesting as well as the original work and beautiful grounds. I happen to be a dog owner and knew that they have 4 little mini doxies tucked silently away in the Inn Keepers quarters. Say hello to Harriet for me next time you stop in! She's fantastic.

We stopped in for a quick lunch. Shared the turkey avocado sandwich with homemade potato salad. Both were excellent. The owner had just taken out a pan of bread pudding from the oven and brought us a complimentary sample for us to try. Just suffice it to say I wanted to lick the plate when I was done. The tortellini soup was a bit bland but otherwise the food was outstanding. The people were very friendly and made you feel like you were at home. Love the small town spirit. I highly recommend this place.
The sandwiches are pretty good. The service isn't the best, but it is Burns so that's standard. Definitely one of the best places in town.
Funky and friendly little spot on the main street through town. Easy parking. We stopped for coffee and a snack. I don't know when I've seen such an array of tempting pies, bars, and pudding. We settled for the old fall backs of a brownie and a lemon bar. The brownie was at least 1.5 inches thick, dark, and moist. The lemon bar was two layers of amazing flavor on a butter crust. I would suggest purchasing your espresso elsewhere, thus the 4 stars, but the pastries are not to be beat!

Morgan’s

369 N Broadway Ave
Burns, 97720
Reviews:
Morgan's is one the usual bars Burnsians (Burnsites?) go to hang out at. The bartenders and friendly and if you go there often enough or are consistent with your order they pretty much have your drink ready by the time you walk from the door to the bar. As a dark beer lover I'm kind of out of luck here: the darkest beer is Nectar Ales' Humboldt Brown Hemp Ale in bottles, with nothing dark on tap. The prices are reasonable though. The layout is pretty straightforward: the front portion is split between a pool table and an open area for dancing, and the rear portion has the bar, some tables, and free table shuffleboard. In between the bar and the pool table is a fancy internet jukebox that allows you to play almost any song you want. Sometimes the bartenders don't like having to switch between the radio (which is away from the bar) and the jukebox though, and on one occasion just gave me my money back rather than make the switch. Secretly I think they just don't like my musical taste, which I can understand, but then why have the jukebox? On weekend nights they have a DJ playing music. No jukebox allowed, however he does take requests and has played everything I've ever requested which is cool. The standard playlist includes a lot of hip hop, which seems very unlike Burns. Since I come here pretty regularly I have noticed that the same songs get played pretty much every weekend; I would love some more variety. At this point Morgan's is the spot to go in Burns. If they had darker beer and occasionally played some punk rock I would never go anywhere else.

Central Pastime

211 N Broadway Ave
Burns, 97720
Reviews:
Central's is probably the main bar/nightlife competitor with Morgan's, though the Pine Room could be a contender. The main difference between the two is that Central's is more of a bar/restaurant with no dance floor to speak of. It is another usual Burnsian/Burnsite hangout and it's not uncommon to see the same people at both places at different times during the night. The Central Pastime building was originally associated with the Central Hotel, which no longer exists, and has been in operation for 60ish years now. The front area is for the under-21 crowd and is set up with picnic-style dining tables and some arcade games. I don't think I've ever actually seen anyone using this area. From here you walk through swinging saloon doors to the rear area which contains the bar and kitchen, some booths and tables, and two free pool tables and a jukebox. No fancy internet jukebox here like at Morgan's, but the bartenders are happy to switch it over and someone did put a mix CD in the machine with some Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys songs, so thank you! The beer situation is not great for dark beer lovers; nothing on tap, though they do have Deschutes Black Butte Porter and Nectar Ales Humboldt Brown Hemp Ale in bottles. The bartenders are pretty friendly and attentive, and they all know what I drink. I don't eat here a whole lot, but the food is decent for what it is. I usually get a burger, which are tasty and inexpensive, though the fries usually come pretty greasy. I wouldn't come here strictly for dining, there are better options in town for that. If you're looking for a relaxed place to hang out, have a have a beer, and not listen to T-Pain or Ludacris, then Central's is probably your place (or give the Pine Room a look!).
I've had the pizza here, (which is supposed to be the house specialty) 3 times. Each time the crust has been over-baked, and the toppings nearly raw. I ordered a steak sandwich once, which was bland, though passable. The problem was that they forgot the accompanying french fries. I was able to flag down the waitress/bartender, and she said she'd get some, but never did. When she arrived with our bill, I told her I never received the fries, so she took fifty cents (Yes, fifty cents) off the tab. I was laughing too hard to complain. Lastly, I've never felt particularly relaxed here, as there is a disconcertingly high percentage of the patrons who seem to be itching for a fight. I wouldn't necessarily call this place a 'dive', because I've been to bars that are, in fact, dangerous dung-holes, but it is the kind of place where, on a Friday or Saturday night, you sip your beer with one eye peeled, lest you have to vacate your seat to accommodate a sudden round of fisticuffs.
It is a bar that makes some basic foods, like pizza, hot dogs and other deep fried stuff. Sunday's special was spaghetti. We found the barman to be friendly. The decor is dark wood, no windows, one large LCD TV, a non-adult section at the entrance for dining with the kids.

Hilander Restaurant Chinese & American Food

Reviews:
We didn't like the food at this place. It had little flavor or texture. I don't expect we'll return.
Pretty good place to eat. The wait was a little long than I had hoped, around 50 min for a party of 7. But the food was good all around.
Nothing special about this place. Menu wasn't very diverse and the food isn't very good. Even the iced tea was bad, like it was really old. Slow, apathetic service.

RJ’s Drive-In Restaurant

Hines Blvd

Reviews:
This is My go to place for breakfast when I'm in Burns. The breakfast is always good and reasonably priced. The service is always quick. I've only had 1 burger here and it was definitely good. It is worth eating at if you're in Burns.
If you're hungry and love good food this is the place to stop! I stopped in there on the way over to Bend looking for a home cooked meal and they had exactly what I was lookin for. I ordered the Philly cheese steak omlent and was not disopointed. It was cooked to perfection just like I was back in Philly. Don't be fooled by the dated appearance because the service makes up for it. What else needs to be said.
This is a great spot for a good quick bite to eat if you're driving through Burns. Service is fast, friendly and food is good. Breakfast is available all day and there are lots of lunch choices.

El Toreo Mexican Restaurant

239 N Broadway Ave
Burns, 97720
Reviews:
Being from San Diego I expect a lot from my Mexican food! This place was ok, it was decent Mexican food in a small town and way exceeded my expectations! There chip bean dip is great an free! Staff was very friendly to us and food was quick! Try it out and enjoy a margarita!
I sat alone, and was left alone. Just the way I like it. The salsa was freshly made, and the bean dip was an unexpected extra that was tasty. Homemade I would guess, because it didn't taste like it was from a can. The chips were homemade too. I had the Pollo street tacos and they were very, very good. Lots of flavor and good use of spices. Not a fan of the pre-shredded cheese, but it didn't add or detract from the flavor of the meal itself. Margarita was good, too. I liked the mix that they used, and the heavy pour helped me crash at the motel I was at that had thin walls and a neighbor with a hearing problem (his TV was at full volume all night). Good job overall.
Great food, horrible after experience. Essentially they double charged my card for the meal and when I called them to ask them to fix the transaction they refused saying that it was my banks fault and they were not responsible for the overcharge. After the third time I called them to dispute the charge (well after the transaction was off pending status) they once again informed me that they were not responsible and to not call back every again. Suffice to say I will not return to this establishment and if you decide it is worth the risk make sure you check your accounts and be prepared to have to take the dispute through your financial institution.

Glory Days Pizza

960 Oregon Ave
Burns, 97720
Reviews:
Where to start? My crew rolled up at half past 4 with mediocre expectations thanks to Yelp. But you people are dead wrong! This place is a family run establishment, a COUNTRY restaurant. Momma took our order with a babe in hand, and then went and delivered pizzas too! (We saw her leave a few times that night, pizzas in tow). Salad bar was freaking amazing. Super fresh veggies, mushrooms were ahhmazing. They have endless drinks.. Slushies, sodas or milkshakes, for $2. Really? Yes, really. Pizza was out of this world amazing. Loaded with toppings, gooey cheese and did I mentions loads of toppings? We sat at one of the long tables, had cloth napkins, and it felt like home away from home.
Great pizza, salad bar and $2 milkshakes. Good family place, really enjoyed it. Prices very reasonable.
Alright, let me start off by saying that my pizza (Pepperoni) was pretty good. The quality seemed pretty good, and they PACKED the toppings on the pizza, so that was nice! When I moved to Burns, this was one of my first meals here, prior to getting settled into my new place. It was recommended to me by several of my coworkers. On first look, the parking lot is massive, and I have yet to see it full, which is neither here, nor there, I was just warned that they are really busy around the lunch hour. When I walked inside, it reminded me of pizza parlors that I went to as a kid. TV's on the wall had sports on, there were arcade games lining the walls. It had a really cool vibe to it... Sadly, I will NEVER eat inside the restaurant ever again. I experienced several small children running barefoot around the counter area. At first, I was under the impression that they were guests, so I didn't give much thought to it. I then noticed that the children ran behind the counter and clung on to the lady taking my order. After giving them a few seconds time (I understand, kids will be kids!!), the kids ran off, and the waitress finished taking my order. Then I turned around and noticed all the kids climbing on the tables behind me. There was a little girl who was standing, barefoot, on the table where I had placed my coat, and when the kids climbed down, I noticed that their feet were black, covered in dirt.... This is a serious health problem when kids are allowed to climb up and track things from the floor, onto where I am supposed to eat my food. The only reason that Glory Days isn't getting a one star review is because they have take-out and delivery, however it will be a while before I can stomach going back in there again.

Elkhorn Club & Linda’s Thai Room

457 N Broadway Ave
Burns, 97720
Reviews:
4 of us made the mistake of dining here because locals recommended it. No bottled wine, only glasses of old Merlot, so we drank bottled beer. Pot stickers looked like bricks made of old pastry, filling was inedible. Our 4 meat and vegetable dishes were all tasteless and awful, with tough, hard as rocks pieces of pork and chicken, overcooked vegetables and terrible sauce. I could eat only the rice, which was not the appropriate sticky Asian variety but more the Uncle Ben's type. Service slow and unfriendly to boot.
Great food consider splitting the Meal because portions are large
I cannot drill this into your head enough: patience is a virtue... and it reaps massive, massive rewards if you can wait for the food at Linda's Thai Room. The most efficient way to get grub through this establishment is to call for take-out and wait a bit, as Linda makes the food homestyle herself. Your average wait-time is about an hour - I admit, it's a highly unorthodox setup, but be patient. Also, Linda will call you back when your food is ready and let you know you can drop by for pick up. You will definitely have the best meal in Burns - possibly one of the best from-scratch Thai meals ever.

Ye Olde Castle

Reviews:
We ate here several times during our recent stay in Burns. They have a varied breakfast menu and their omelets were big and tasty. There's also a dinner buffet which has a different menu each day of the week. We ate there when they had delicious pork ribs. Um, boy.... I can eat lots of ribs! The food is well-made, cooked right there using their own recipes, not pre-packaged garbage. They have rates for one plate, all-you-can-eat, and a senior (over 65) rate. This restaurant is under new management - and the quality and customer service is way better than what it was a couple years ago.
Lunchtime on our drive from Baker City to Lakeview. This is pretty much middle of the road dining for me. The burgers and fries my fiance and I ordered were average, though I would have preferred my fries slightly more crispy. Service was alright, and we had soda refills when we ran low. Bit of advice though, the coffee to go was not the best. Seek your caffeination elsewhere.
I stopped here for lunch on my way through town after a local man said it was good. Although it had unique and fun decor, the place seemed cluttered and unclean due to the amount of antiques throughout the restaurant. I ordered the French dip sandwich, and it came out so fast that I worry it was pre-made and just sitting somewhere in the kitchen. This fear gained more evidence when I ate the sandwich and found the meat dry and not very flavorful. The a jus was watery at best, and the fries tasted like the came out of a frozen bag from the grocery store. The only really redeeming thing about this place was their pie. I had a slice of coconut cream that was absolutely wonderful. It seemed fresh and homemade with a nice, flaky crust.
