Welcome to Corvallis, Oregon!
The exciting home to Oregon State University where we represent our fighting Beaver spirit all day, every day.
4 Day Eating Itinerary Trip
DAY 1: Wednesday
Head 15 minutes south out of Corvallis and you will find, amidst the middle of farm fields, Grange No. 52 and Greenberry Tavern & Store. It’s Grandma’s fried chicken; for $10 you can have mashed potatoes, corn, a biscuit, and 3 big ole pieces of fried chicken. For a delicious homemade meal in a quaint, PERFECT country diner you will experience the farming community during the rowdy social hour.
DAY 2: Thursday
Since it is springtime or summer you will be catching either an OSU baseball game (spring) or a Corvallis Knights baseball game (summer) at Goss Stadium. Before the game you will stop by the second story of Cobblestone Square on Monroe. There is “Local Boyz” with the best Hawaiian barbeque around. I suggest ordering the 7a and getting ribs and steak for around $7.
After the game, in celebration of course (!), you will go to the 9:00 PM happy hour at Flat Tail Brewing. On the riverfront of the Willamette you can experience the home brewed delights that are concocted in the warehouse adjacent to the restaurant. Happy Hour’s best menu items are the $5 Mac’n’Cheese (with extras) and the $4 hummus, pita and veggie plate for the health conscious.
Day 3: Friday
Today you will visit Brew-BQ on Madison Avenue. A newer diner, it is one of the only true barbeque places that you will find in Corvallis and it combines something that Corvallis, as a college town, is really proud of; home brewed beer. This is an excellent place to sit down and enjoy a break from the afternoon or to stop by for happy hour with their great deals.
Day 4: Saturday
The best place to be in Corvallis on a Saturday is on the waterfront with the Corvallis Farmer’s market. You will experience the artwork, the street performers, the deliciously concocted meals and the fresh ingredients whose fragrances perfume the air.
My suggestion: a handheld meat pie OR a crepe. Or both!
