HERMISTON — In recognition of 48 years in business, the Chuckwagon Cafe is serving up prizes, a drawing and special savings.
The celebration runs Tuesday, Oct. 9 through Saturday, Oct. 13 from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The cafe is located at 81027 N. Highway 395, Hermiston. The biggest discount, said owner Cathy Stolz, is an a la cart New York steak for $4.80.
Established in 1970 by Dorothy (Stolz’s mother) and Duane Beason, the Chuckwagon Cafe has been at its current location since 1979. Prior to that it operated from the building that now houses The Nickel. The cafe’s first location, which burned in 1972, was a small drive-in/diner on Highway 395 where Motel 6 now resides.
The cafe supports local fundraising projects that benefit area students. In addition to actively participating in Hermiston’s annual Community Fellowship Dinners each Thanksgiving and Christmas, Stolz is proud to honor veterans each year on Veterans Day with a free SOS lunch.
