Anywhere to eat in Springfield, Oregon?

I know there are some quality restaurants in Eugene, but is there anything in Springfield, its working class sister? I'm going to be there for business, and I'm hoping not to starve. Thanks much for any thoughts.

  1. My wife and I recently had a good barbecue lunch at . . . I believe it was called the Howling Coyote BBQ Company (I Googled "Springfield BBQ", and I'm pretty sure by the map that was the name of the place) while on the way to Southern Oregon. It is on Gateway, just off I5. The barbecue was good . . . not Texas great, but good for the Northwest, and with an interesting variety of sauces for their meat choices. I don't know of anyplace else in Springfield that I'd recommend. I'd still drive to Eugene (not a long drive) and go to Marche at the 5th Avenue Market (1st choice) or Cafe Xenon downtown (2nd choice).
