Are you looking for the best places to eat in Sunriver Oregon? Sunriver may seem like an isolated town in Central Oregon, and for the most part this is true. But you can actually find cuisine from all over the world in the form of countless unique restaurants. Regardless of what you are in the mood for, you will find an authentic and delicious option for satisfying your craving. If you are craving the unique cuisine of Philadelphia, then you are in luck, as Bruneau’s South Philly Cuisine is one of the most beloved restaurants in town.
Okay, so Bruneau’s is not technically a restaurant, as the incredible cuisine they provide is served from a food cart. But nobody seems to mind, as it is still one of the most delicious meals you can find in Sunriver! Among the favorites served out of the cart are classic Philly Cheese Steaks and traditional Greek Gyros. The Philly Cheese Steak is of course the favorite, and why should it not be? It all starts with an authentic Amoroso-style roll, atop which you will find quality, chip rib-eye steak, sautéed onions, and extra sharp provolone cheese; an absolute classic! The Gyro is the next thing on the menu, and it is always sure to please. Thinly sliced lamb tops a delicious, warm pita, accompanied by fresh greens, tomatoes, onions, feta cheese, and their amazing and homemade tzatziki sauce. Other popular options are the vegetarian gyro and the spicy hot sausage.
Every aspect of each menu item goes a long way in making them exceptional, but these Amoroso rolls are the real secret. In the quest of finding the perfect roll, the owner had four of the most popular rolls imported from Philly and found a local baker that could almost perfectly recreate his favorite. People love this Sunriver classic because they have a very small menu, but they make everything the right way, unlike other restaurants that tend to try and offer everything, and as a result offer many good options, but no great options.
You can find the food cart in one of the most beautiful area’s in town in the new Elkibou’s Food Cart Park. They are whipping up South Philly classics on the sidewalk right next to the Post Office from 11 am to 7 pm on Tuesdays through Sundays and from 10:30 pm to 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays. The actual address is 56865 Enterprise Drive.
Not only is Bruneau’s one of the best places to eat in Sunriver Oregon, it’s also the perfect place to stop for a delicious bite when you are taking advantage of the endless activities that this area offers.
A Walk in the Park
The Philly Cheese Steak served at Bruneau’s South Philly Cuisine is definitely one of the most delicious sandwiches you will ever taste, but if you’re worried about the calories—Philly food is definitely not diet food—taking a walk in the park can alleviate those worries as it burns off the calories. And because this is Oregon, we’re not talking about just any park; we’re thinking that a short drive to the Peter Skene Ogden State Park is in order. It’s located just outside of Redmond, Oregon, only 40 miles from Bruneau’s. Named after the explorer most known for exploring the Snake River area of Oregon, Peter Skene Ogden, the park takes up 86 acres of prime land, offering panoramic views of the region that will have you reaching for your camera time and time again—especially when you find your way to the designated scenic view point high above the valley overlooking both the Crooked River far below and the brick-colored railway bridge that spans the river and creates a dramatic focal point that has been photographed millions of times before.
