Prelude to the Skyway
So I have been hearing over and over about a particular restaurant out on Highway 26, en route to Mt. Hood. The Skyway. In fact, it’s been my mom that has been urging me to visit, claiming the ambiance, food, pricing and staff is second to none. Always on the hunt for a uniquely good place to eat and imbibe, well, I thought I’d do something fun with this one. So, first an initial prelude…ala my own mom, who has provided a review and pictures of this reportedly iconic and quirky place. For the second act, I will personally visit the Skyway and report back, surely validating all that I’ve heard as my mom (no bias, right??) is an excellent judge of great food and atmosphere. So, here goes part 1.
Self-described on their website as a, “Northwest-style BBQ shack in a forest setting with live music, a fire pit & outdoor picnic tables,” the Skyway is located at 71545 E US-26, Zigzag, OR 97049. For an interactive map click here.
Here is a review and description from my mom who has batted 1000 in her restaurant recommendations to me over the years:
