This husband is convinced. The One Horse Tavern is a great spot to get a good draft beer and great food. If you somehow don't feel like one of the the best steaks you will ever taste on Fridays and Saturdays....then try the Farm Burger...every animal in the barn yard on a bun.
We had the farm burger and happily got our arteries clogged. We also had the loaded fries 1.0. If we came here again, I might try the 2.0, because it was a little sweet (the bleu cheese dressing?). I put creamy horseradish on it and was very happy. The place was busy, but had seating. Nice people. Good food.
Fantastic food and libations at affordable prices. Friendly staff complimented by local community of fun spirited Oregonians. Patio slots and more. Don't miss this historic gem of history gone by.

So My parents grew up out here, and I lived here for a few years as well, over 15 ars ago. Back then this building was the post office. In fact when you enter the wall to the kitchen was the PO boxes, as they have no delivery service in town so you had to go the post office daily to get your mail. They moved the post office down the street and left this tiny building empty. So in moves the chicken! I read the reviews and had to try it. We happened to be returning from McMinnville Sunday at dinner time and gave it a shot. I have to say the waitress, who is the owner as well, was one of the kindest people you will meet. She was funny, engaging, and even let me change the channels on the big screens to the blazer playoff game! It was full except for one table when we arrived, it is a small place with maybe 8 or so tables and a bar that seats about 8. The parking was full and we were on the street parking, but with the bar next door it is hard to tell how full the chicken is. We got lucky and had a table when we got in. The service took a while, watched all of the third quarter before we got our food. But it was worth the wait. I elected the Philly cheese steak with the tavern fries. Both were awesome! just the right amount of cheese, melted to perfection. Don't forget to get the fry sauce, it is as good or better than the old arctic circle fry sauce. My wife had the BIG BOY. The portions are very big! be ready and be hungry. The prices were fantastic! every meal comes with a drink as well, so out total was under 20 bucks! A little more after the tip for this great waitress! we will definitely hit this again!
I stopped in, a few days before 2014 Thanksgiving and it is truly a great local, mom and pop diner. The majority of the food is (home)made right there (no canned, frozen, packaged stuff). I loved my breakfast and the potatoes were perfect fresh, home-style ones...which is one of the ways I personally judge a diner by. :-) If you're looking for a fine dining experience, where the waiter hovers over you, with 'über healthy/fairly tasteless' food that resembles small pieces of art... then don't bother. HOWEVER, if you don't mind salt-of-the-earth, (some grease included) home cooking...then you've hit the jackpot! :-)
Okay, I have to say I love small diners. Homey, sometimes campy, yet there is an ambiance about them that take me back to when I was a kid and diners were all you had to eat at if you brought your kids. Fancy restaurants were for adult date nights, not small children. Well, I found a great place to go if you're looking for great food, wonderful prices, and stuff that will taste like it was prepared just for you. Mostly because it was...this place doesn't do pre-made food. My sister and I took the kids to the Oregon Aquarium one Sunday morning and stopped here for breakfast. I'd read the reviews on yelp and had to come - mostly because of the name. The drive for us wasn't long, but I'm in Hillsboro. The parking lot is small, but there is some on-street parking. We went fairly early so we were seated immediately. What we found was a cute, campy, clean and homey diner. It used to be the old Gaston post office, but has since been sold to create this place. It's small with only 8-10 places to sit. The menu isn't fancy, but it's chocked full of great eats! The portions are great - maybe too much if you're a small eater, or take it home for lunch! They are totally kid friendly - the waitress brought over a small plastic container with little toy treats for her and said she could pick one! The kids' menu is proportioned just for their little tummies! While the grown up menu has got some chuzpah! You better be hungry - or share! My little one had the Jr. French toast which came with one egg any style and her choice of a bacon strip or a sausage link and potatoes or fruit. She ate it all, because it was right-sized for her! She's ten, eats like a mosquito even when she says she's really hungry! My boy had pancakes; the short stack which meant there were two. Yeah, two, but they were the size of an eight inch plate!! They came with eggs, which he didn't order because he's that picky about how his eggs are made. They came with the usual, warm syrup and bacon. He is a hearty eater, but the size was overwhelming - he did his best. My sister had the buffalo steak and eggs. The steak was small, but very filling - about one inch thick; the other usual sides, but she opted for fruit, which they accommodated with a smile. I had the corned beef hash and I have to tell you, it was delicious! Real corned beef, trimmed of all fat, cut into bite-sized pieces with cubed russet potatoes and green pepper. DELISH! The waitress was so pleasant and accommodating and the cook in the back was your favorite grandmother! She was the main cook and boy can she do it proud. If you're on your way to the coast, or just in the neighborhood, then I totally recommend this cute little diner. You definitely get your money's worth!! How can you resist the name - Screaming Chicken!!
