Stopped for lunch between Pendleton and Burns. Glad we did. I had a burger and the wife a Reuben. Both were delicious. Gigantic mugs or small pitchers of iced tea. Great service.

Service here is always pleasant and efficient. The food is very good and portions are plentiful. We normally have breakfast here but have also enjoyed lunch here. Parking is easy as well.

Food like mama used to make. Stopped after church, before cranking up the motorhome to head home. The food was great with fast, friendly service. The place was packed for good reason. This is possibly the friendliest place we stopped at on this trip.

We stopped at the Squeeze-In for breakfast after spending the night at one of the hotels across the street. The food was really good once we got it. The restaurant was really busy and the wait staff was overwhelmed. They apologized profusely for the inconvenience.

We go through John Day one or twice a year and always eat at the Squeeze Inn. The food is not exotic, but it's always good and the service is always friendly - the staff make you feel like you're a valued local rather than...More

This cafe simply has very good food, with ample portions, at a very reasonable price. Along with the food you receive excellent service.
