Jalisco’s Mexican Restaurant 3095 W 11th Ave Eugene, OR 97402 (541) 485-8636 See this location on a map Looking for something a lot better than Burrito Boy (setting the bar REALLY low)?

Studio One Cafe

Studio One Cafe 1473 E 19th Ave Eugene, OR 97403 (541) 342-8596 See this location on a map Studio One Cafe really has a great reputation.

The Cooler

The Cooler 20 Centennial Loop Eugene, OR 97401 (541) 484-4355 See this location on a map The Cooler. It’s got a cool name. The entire building looks like a big walk-in refrigerator (hence the name) including the big wooden cooler-ish front door. It’s also got a bunch of neon beer signs, a real live moosehead […]
