Cowboy Dinner Tree

One of the last adventures that we went on during our trip to Central Oregon was a trip to the Cowboy Dinner Tree in Silver Lake, OR. It's a restaurant located about 60 miles from where I was staying out in the middle of nowhere. You have to make a reservation, and when you do, you have to order your dinner. You only have a choice of a whole chicken or a 26-30 oz steak. I chose chicken and my husband chose steak. We really had no idea what to expect on our way there.

 This is what the restaurant looks like from the outside. It's definitely not the kind of place you'd be driving along and decide to stop. It also had another building that was the waiting room/gift shop.

This is where they cook all of the meat
Dinner comes with a salad, soup, yeast rolls, a baked potato, and dessert! Needless to say, there were a lot of leftovers to take home.

If you ever make it out to this part of Oregon, you have to go to the Cowboy Dinner Tree at least once. It was a fitting adventure to wrap up our vacation.

Now, it's back to reality. I head back to work tomorrow and Kendall is back to our usual routine. You can bet I'll be on the lookout for more adventures to blog about.
