Papa Murphy’s

1754 N 1st St
Stayton, 97383
Reviews:
I get pizza here at least twice a month. We are always satisfied and the flavors are great. The staff here are young, but respectful and friendly. The only drawback to this location is the limited parking. It is in a small strip mall in Stayton that has about 15 parking spaces. Which would be fine, except there is also a Quizno's and a Taco place in the same mall, so parking can be a challenge sometimes.
Busy, busy place! But well worth it. Right now pizzas are $10 each. I love Papa Murphy's pizza especially the Cowboy pizza.
Had a stuffed crust double layer pizza that was very good. Was really busy so the wait was a little long. No big , got to watch the 4 friendly employees behind the counter work their pizza making craft. It was love at 425 degrees. Will be back,as we found it a lot better than the pizza down the street by Roths.

Rumours Restaurant & Lounge

282 N 3rd Ave
Stayton, 97383
Reviews:
Best bar in town in my opinion! Of course part of that influence comes from my grandma, who used to work there way back when it was the Bon Bon. My family has seen it throughout all its glory days, from the Bon Bon, to Twilight, to what we now know as Rumours! Love the bartenders, they really make you feel welcome even if the place is packed. And you don't even have to be drunk to enjoy the food! There are times I just go there for the environment and a bite to eat, but sometimes it's hard to say no to a screwdriver or one of their signature drinks called the fruit salad. Look, all I'm saying is... when you get grossed out from red apple, don't forget about this towns little gem, Rumours!

We drive by each morning around 7am on our way to work and never see anyone here so were hesitant as to why. My wife and finally decided to stop by this Saturday morning for breakfast and I will say we were very pleased with our meal and the attentive service. I had the chicken fried steak covered in homemade gravy, two eggs, hash browns and toast for only $6.50. The gravy was excellent so next time I'll try it on biscuits. My wife had the breakfast sandwich which comes with hash browns and it was only $4.95 Their prices are very reasonable (nothing over $7 for breakfast) and the food was very good. The menu isn't huge but it has anything I'd want for breakfast or lunch. It's not necessarily someplace I'd recommend driving all the way from Salem or Portland to eat at but if you are in Stayton around breakfast (served until 3pm) or lunch I'd recommend you stop by for a meal. This location has had many different eateries over the years and I hope this one will last. It just needs to get a daily following of regulars from Stayton and the surrounding area. I'm sure once more people try this place they will come back again.
Finally! A lot of businesses through here, and I hope this one makes it. Great prices, and good American food. breakfast until 2pm, and always good service. please give this hometown diner a try. Very Clean and Very friendly. I eat here probably once a week, and have yet to be disappointed.
What a special kind of find. This place has been hands down one of my favorite stops while in the Salem area. The food tastes fantastic, the serves has been inviting, and the prices are spot on. This place just can't be beat for breakfast. (side note, this place is small, and gets very busy, so be patient, and their espresso isn't inside if you're wanting a special coffee/drink they'll let you walk up to their drive through stand right behind the restaurant)

Mashita Teriyaki

Reviews:
I read the other reviews and it made me curious...from the outside I would never come here but I read so many good things and I'm glad I tried it. The girls working were very helpful. The beef teriyaki is amazing. I wasn't brave enough to try the sushi but I will be more adventurous the next time. The dragon roll looked pretty good. I got the sweet and sour chicken. Which was a generous portion plus the rice and salad. It was pretty filling. If you are in the area or driving through, it's worth a stop!
I love the food! The bento is great! Awesome service nice people the food is fresh! Healthy alternative! Lots of veggies and our plates are always full! Very tasty noodles and chicken the steak is wonderful! I recommend 100% if u don't try it you're missing out!
Amazing food and great prices! Good portions, fresh ingredients, and friendly service. The sushi was great, best option nearby for a good sushi roll. We had the chicken bento, sweet & sour chicken, side salad, potstickers, spring rolls, Dallas sushi roll, and California roll. All of it was awesome and we will go back to try more of the menu!

Reviews:
I love this place, I've been coming here since I was a little kid and it never disappoints
Fantastic service! The staff is always friendly and fun to banter with. Ordering out is always good too! I can honestly say everything I've tried from them was delicious, even the things I didn't think id like.
We had hit and miss reviews from the whole group who ate here, so it averaged out to be a three star rating. I thought that the food was decent for fast food type Mexican food. The biggest complaint from the group was that the salsa was more like pico than a blended salsa for the chips, they served the salsa in small containers, for the chips, making it almost impossible to get the super chunky salsa out to eat without making a mess. I'd say that this place was good, but not something to write home about.

Big Town Hero

1008 N First Ave
Stayton, 97383
Reviews:
The very berry turkey is my favorite sandwich. The employees are super kind and extremely quick at making sandwiches! If the drive in has a long line someone will usually walk out to the cars behind and take their order so it's ready when you pull up! I prefer Big Town Hero over Subway any day. Everything tastes fresh.
Perhaps I'm slightly biased because I worked here for two years throughout high school, but besides Big Town being the best sandwich shop ever, the Stayton location is the best I've eaten at! The bread is made fresh daily and tossed (well, donated!) each night. Meats, cheeses, and other toppings are sliced fresh each day. Plus, everything is made to order. You can't really go wrong with Big Town. Even after eating it (almost) daily for two years, I'd be happy to live off it. My favorites are the Very Berry Turkey on white, or the Arti-Parm on a panini (not on the menu). The loaded potato soup is killer, too. Although I've visited the new location, I have yet to try out the coffee selection. The drive-thru is a major plus, though! Love the convenience of this location vs the old.
Really good sandwiches without any fuss or pretense. Variety is a little lacking, but great if you're hungry now and don't want greasy fast food.

When visiting family in Aumsville a couple of weeks ago, we took them to breakfast at this restaurant. We were pretty sure we had made a good choice when we saw how busy it was on an icy cold morning. The food was excellent - generous portions - served by helpful, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.
Very friendly staff. Good portion of food for price. Food was great. I like the pictures hanging. Was a little chilly in there.
Love the bacon!! It's a must if you are eating breakfast or lunch!!! Very busy cafe, be patient they are making fresh food. Very much recommend you stop in for lunch. Remember they do close early.

Ugo’s Pizza

190 E Ida St
Stayton, 97383
Reviews:
This place is ridiculous! ordered a pizza for delivery.. 30 bucks for a medium pizza!!! The girl taking the order was unprofessional and rushed on the phone, I myself had to recite it back to her because I had a feeling she wasn't hearing me. Waited 45 minutes for delivery, tipped the guy 11.00 all in all after they added their delivery fee, due to his lack of change. AFTER I asked the lady on the phone if I could just use my card because half the time the drivers don't have change, but she assured me he did. Delivery guy leaves, and I sit down to enjoy my 30 dollar medium pizza, open it up, and yep its the totally wrong pizza. I call back to let her know they delivered the wrong one, and she tells me they will send a new one out, and not to eat the pizza they delivered because they would be taking it back. I thought that was kind of odd, as the pizza was already in our home, and all... hmmm. but okay. Wait about 35 more minutes and the delivery guy shows up again, with the correct pizza, I ask him if they really want to take the first pizza back, as it had been in my house, and I thought that was honestly weird, he responds "Well actually I was going to eat it, it looked really good." haha! seriously dude? Sooo, they didn't offer a refund, apologize, or even let us keep the pizza they messed up on.,and btw who the hell eats a pizza that was at someone elses house??? how unprofessional. I gave the guy the pizza back, and was totally thrown off by his comment. The pizza I did get was undercooked, and had barely any toppings on it. I was totally over it, and decided to call them the next day and speak to a manager (which I never do) probably because of the 30.00 price tag, and I was totally un satisfied. So today I call up and ask to talk to a manager. Long and behold its the same ignorant girl who took my order lastnight and messed it all up in the first place. I explained the situation to her, and said I was weirded out by the delivery drivers comment and asked if their protocol is to let the drivers eat pizzas after being delivered to peoples houses, she said "No, and I will talk to him." I at this point said I was truly unsatisfied and would just like my money back. She said she would NOT refund my money, as she felt she did her part of correcting the mistake, by sending me a new pizza. I let her know that she was acting totally unprofessional, and I just wanted a refund. She once again refused, and copped an attitude by saying " well maybe ill put a note and give you half off next time." I let her know there would NOT be a next time, and I would just like a refund. Answer is still no. I then kindly let her know that if she was going to play that game, I would let all the website reviews know what an unprofessional, and HORRIBLE place this was in terms of customer service. If the customers not happy, make them happy. Plain and simple. We all know how that works. But apparently this lady missed the memo.
Great pizza, love the thin crust style pizza. The toppings are always good and plentiful. Pricing was a little high but not bad if you use the local paper coupons.
This pizza has a really great, unique flavor. The crust is perfect. Probably the best pizza in our tiny town....Expensive, but worth it. My only suggestion, would be to give the place a bit of a 'facelift'.... :)

Red Apple

333 N 2nd Ave
Stayton, 97383
Reviews:
I tried this place on a whim and I'm glad I did. The food tasted really good and the portions were quite large. I had plenty of leftovers for when I got hungry an hour later. Yeah, Chinese does that to me. The tea was good and the egg soup was yummy. I had the sweet and sour pork and shrimp with rice and chowmein. I would definitely recommend you give the Red Apple a try.
When in Stayton, we go to the Red Apple. The food is reasonably priced and you get what you pay for. Service is normally good, hot, timely, and in reasonable amounts. I would recommend this restaurant.
I beg you... DON'T DO IT! Terrible terrible terrible service. I can't stress that enough! The restaurant side is quiet and some dished are okay at best. The bar side is a nightmare! Floors are always sticky, so wear boots if you MUST go, ore your shoes will be glued to the floor. Restrooms aren't very clean, and the staff is the worst! So rude! You belong there if you are already a regular, but if you just bar hopping every once and awhile like I do, you are not welcome.. unless your a smoker. The smokers are nice to everyone.

We drive from Salem for this Chinese restaurant. Great customer service, good price, and awesome Chinese American food.
I have eaten there a few times in the past year and found the food to be good at times and not so good at other times. Service is the same way. Quantity of food has gotten smaller and prices have risen. I don't eat in this establishment due to these changes.
I have been going to this restaurant since elementary school-- and now I'm in college! The food is absolutely delicious, and I love their tea and egg flower soup! I highly recommend :)
