Fiesta En Jalisco

Reviewed By suebruno

Very tasty good. Clean, nicely decorated. Very little open in Orofino on a Sunday but this stop turned out great. Well seasoned. Fajitas are a bit pricey at $18.75. Generous food potions. Quesadilla was the best!!! Many combo plates. Excellent service!!!!

During our recent stay in Orofino we ate lunch at Augie's Deli. Fantastic selection of sandwiches, both hot and cold. Had their soup of the day which was spectacular as well. Both the owner and her hard working assistant were friendly, diligent and professional. Tried to eat here for lunch several days later and unfortunately they were closed on Saturday. GREAT restaurant!

It's been awhile since I was through Orofino (50 miles from Lewiston) but I can only hope this little pink, right next to the highway, tiny little bowling alley coffee shop is still serving the best hamburgers that I have ever had. Large, juicy, seared just right pattys, big fresh buns, gourmet chili and all the usual fixin's. No, I don't have any connection with them other than as a patron. Also, I hasten to add, I don't bowl! And the irony is that unless you are a local, in the area for fishing or hunting, or just traveling on Hwy 12 and just happen to stop you would never know. Life is like that.

Northfork Cafe

Reviewed By juanita_v - Woodland, California

This small town cafe is perfect for a big appetite. The young man behind the grill recommended the western bacon cheeseburger. We are SO glad we took his advice. My husband and I each had one, his with fries and mine with onion rings. Two very large refillable soft drinks rounded out the meal. There was plenty of thick bacon on the burgers. Onion rings and fries were done to perfection and plentiful. Already bursting, we could not resist taking two home made sweet rolls to go. If the burgers are typical of the quality of their food, I will have another taste of paradise tonight!

Reviewed By Nana_JP - Washington, DC

The menu is generous and exciting, especially for such a small community. I had salmon and it was perfectly prepared. Someone else had steak which was not very tender, but that isn't necessarily a kitchen issue. The service is a bit stilted but efficient.

Arrived to great Mexican fare, awoke to biscuits and gravy and the best scrambled eggs you've ever eaten and finished the next night with steak and potatoes. Jo also packed us to-go fried and barbecued chicken for our boating day and individual sack lunches for the bus ride home. All the food was amazing!

Krystal Cafe

Reviewed By gastrnome - Tucson, Arizona

There is nothing special about this place. Hash browns from frozen and barely cooked when presented. Eggs not very warm. Asked for toast dark and got what they wanted to serve. Just not impressed. If this place is noted for it's lumberjack sized breakfasts then lumberjacks are not what they used to be.

Ronatta's Cakery

Reviewed By joeandlorid - Spokane, Washington

Right down from the Lodge at Rivers Edge, Ronatta's is one of the best bakery's we have ever encountered! Sadly, it was my inlaws from Pittsburgh who found Ronatta's a few years ago when we were all staying at the Lodge for a wedding. Now, we drive 45 minutes whenever we can just to have baked goodies from this place and when my in-laws are out for a visit, this is a must stop for them or their vacation is not complete. I'm usually not a scone person but Ronatta's has converted me! Brownies, whoopee pies, cookies, donuts, cake pops, pies...its all good and you can't go wrong!

China Palace

Reviewed By Meanderman01 - Rapid City, South Dakota

As others have commented, a very clean interior greets you on entry. Booth seating is a little tight. Typical menu with reasonable to slightly high prices. Our portions were sizable, but both the soup and chow mien had small, shaved or ground pieces of meat. Friendly and attentive server.

Pizza Factory

Reviewed By Rick D - Meridian, Idaho

When you are on motorcycles and it's pouring rain outside you have dinner delivered. Our only choice for delivery was Pizza Factory. We ordered the Ultimate Meat and it did not disappoint. Bacon, sausage, and more meat. Had a Greek salad delivered and we all shared it, what a great vinegerette with it.
