- Some of my favorite Beaverton community restaurants
- Big’s Chicken – 4570 SW Watson Ave, Beaverton, OR 97005. It’s
family friendly, the chicken is delish and the fries are like none other.
- Decarli – 4545 SW Watson Ave, Beaverton, OR 97005. Great place, food
andservice. All the elements of a high enddowntown restaurant right in downtown Beaverton!
- Westgate Bourbon Bar and Taphouse – One of my favorites. It can get busy but don’t worry, you can order your favorite beverage (over 900 bottles to choose from) to sip on while you wait in their oversized waiting area or head to the bar/lounge area. I have not had a bad dish there yet and I’m on number 6.
