Two months ago I took my friend to Big River for a birthday lunch celebration. Big River in Corvallis has a $10, three-course lunch special, which sounded perfectly fancy and delicious.
Morgan and I both chose to have a salad as our first course, mini pizza as entree, and brownie for dessert. Our waiter brought out warm bread and olive oil for us to snack on as we waited, which saved the day, as the service was really slow for a practically empty dining area and business lunch hour.
Not as fancy as the three-course French meal I had imagined, but still very tasty.
