We are headed for a river trip on the Rogue River and provision at the Salem Costco. We will probably stay in Salem. Where should you suggest we go out to eat? Where should we stay overnight?

  1. What are you looking for? Crooked House Bistro in West Salem is very, very French and very, very good. Christo's has exceptional pizza. La Capitale is quite good and has a good bar. All three would give you a positive experience.

    1. Good ideas. Should I google these or can you give me links to their addresses?

        I agree that Christo's has fantastic pizza. I happily drive thirty to forty minutes one way, past at least a dozen other pizza places to get Christo's.

      2. If interested in Mexican food, search this board. There's probably no more authentic in Oregon.

        1. OK, Christos it is. What several options do you recommend for an order choice?

            Mmmm, Greek, Bianco Pesto Funghi, Pepperoni..... Peroni on tap.
            Damn, I might have to go myself :)

            1. We tried Christo's on our visit to Salem. The pizza was great and the wine list excellent.
