Walker's Farm Kitchen is situated on Hwy 395 at the intersection of SE 4th St. in a converted house which over 100 years old. Enjoy the hardwood floors and casual ambiance only an old home can provide.

Fresh ingredients in dinner salad and respective dinners. Lightly breaded chicken fried chicken a little overdone, but still tasty. Sockeye salmon was special of the day, and we failed to ask how it was prepared; was quite spicy and toned down by asking for additional accompanying sauce. Service was excellent; seems to be a favorite of locals. Would go back for lunch if we visit again.

Had some time to kill while heading on to work today and grabbed some coffee and a Chonga Bagel at this Hermiston Oregon Starbucks location. Got some Pike coffee as well. Very friendly staff and got my coffee and bagel right away. Very clean restaurant and bathroom area. Drive thru was busy but the lobby was slow so I got in and out quick. Thank you

Dairy Queen

When they came out with their chicken nuggets meal they were big and juicy and wonderful. We had them several times because they were so good and the sauces were great. Then they changed, got about half the size with less fries and the price went up. After a couple of more visits (hoping) we finally gave up. This was all at the drive up window.

Came to dinner on a Saturday night and the place was packed.... when you walk in, a sweet lady is making homemade corn tortillas that your food is make with.... I love that because you know they were made with love... had great service even though they were buzy. The chips and salsa are plentiful. BIG portions, food is well worth what you pay. Everyone was very sweet.

I just started working in the hermiston area & asked around for a great "hometown" coffee shoppe. Several ppl recommended Heidi's. I'm so glad they did because their selection & menu is outstanding! I'm impressed w/ their "skinny"/nonfat/sugar-free offerings!!! The gals that work there are so helpful & fun. I like to support local business & Heidi's will be my go-to place from now on. The coffee is robust & they offer you a complimentary chocolate covered coffee bean w/ your drink. Yes please!

This is a must try when you go to Hermiston. The food is fresh, fun, and they are always coming up with great specials. You won't find food like this anywhere else in Hermiston. The burgers are the best in town! The gelato is amazing as well.

We are family of four and would rather have good coffee here than at the local chain coffee stores in town. The girls are fun to talk with, good service and makes great coffee.
