Headed Through Oregon on the Way Home from the BAR? It's time for a Frozen Custard!
They have new owners now, Portland's KNRK radio host Greg Blover, Franz Spievogel, who owns Laughing Planet,and real estate broker David Demers. They have totally restored the old place and the iconic food is even better! (My Mom's Dad could never resist the Elvis Burger with Pimento Cheese).
But what made her just grin ear to ear was you can get a burger for your dog, created for "Biscuit" - the dog below. The Biddy Burger. OK, technically it's a kids burger, but what dog wouldn't want a locally sourced hamburger made just in their size?
They are located along the river where Marine Drive branches off into Commercial Drive just east of the Columbia River Maritime museum (also definitely worth a stop if you've not been there). Look for the Custard King sign - SO easy to spot.
So if any of you are traveling up the Oregon coast on your way home from the Blogville Annual Retreat or are on the Washington side and want to make that beautiful drive across the big Oregon bridge (for sales tax free shopping) stop in at the Custard King in Astoria and get your whole family, two and four legged, a treat! Mom says manager Jeff will take good care of you!
