Zydeco has to get the nod as my favorite eatery. Great atmoshpere, great variety on the menu and wonderful service makes this a must visit location.
Best Piece of Advice for First Time Visitors to Bend?
There are so many things to do in Bend. Don’t go the easy route and just do what you know. Take advantage and try something you never thought you would do whether its rock climbing, rafting, fly fishing or one of the other options we are so lucky to have right out our back door.
