Hi Elf:

I tried Laughing Planet recently based on your recommendation, but I was not very satisfied. It's not bad, but too bland for my taste buds. Full review on my website. But thanks for the idea anyways!

Sorry! What did you get? I guess if you're thinking traditional burrito's and mexican food that is not the place. It's different.

Tried the Southwest Chili burrito, the Mole Chicken, and one other one (forget the name now; maybe it was the Che G?). All had the right idea but not enough flavor at all. By chance, I went to a newer little place today called La Bufa Taqueria (downtown) which has REALLY good southwestern chili sauce in free bottles on the tables. EVERYTHING tasted good with that sauce.

Have you tried Qdoba yet? The one near UO campus is very clean and not overly rowdy for a restaurant near a college. You could bring your kids there no problem. Sorry, no plastic dinosaurs on the tables like at Laughing Planet.

Hop Valley Brewing Co.: Big miss!

Steelhead Brew Co.:Nothing amazing but a tried and true solid performer.

Taqueria Mi Tierra: Literal hole-in-the-wall Mexican place with authentic food.

Green Duck Burrito: Husband & wife team run this little burrito joint which makes "grilled burritos" very nicely.

Fina Taqueria: Nothing special at this corporate version of a Mexican burrito place.

Off the Waffle: Funky Eugene-style waffle place. Some will like. Some will not.

Papa's Soul Food Kitchen BBQ: For me, it's waaay too fatty. But other people seem to love it.

Wagon Yard BBQ (far east edge of Springfield): Awesome dry-style Texas BBQ.

Bagel Sphere: Finally tried this place today and was surprised to discover fresh bagel sandwiches, bagel pizzas, etc. in a reasonably clean little shop. Packed at lunch time. Will definitely add it to my list.

Poppi's Anatolia: semi-classy Eugene-style weirdness. A mix of Greek and Indian food, which sounds bad, but it's really good.

Ye Olde Pancake House: Nothing special but good basic breakfast food in a Denny's-style-but-locally-owned place.

La Perla: thin pizza which is very nice if you like that sort of thing. Also some nice sandwiches. Lunch is a good value whereas dinner is not.

I have only written full reviews for a couple of places listed above. Hopefully I will get around to full reviews of all of them someday...Please hold breath. ;-)
