The Mt. Hood Pullout restaurant is open on Highway 35 in Mt. Hood.
Owners Lori Keller and Doug Caveny of Saw Tooth Roadhouse did a soft opening in February.
The café at Highway 35 and Cooper Spur Road is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., with plans to extend hours through 7 p.m. later this year.
It is located in Randy Kiyokawa’s building across from Mt. Hood Town Hall.
“We saw the building location and knew we had to do something there,” Caveny said. “Looking at the equipment and facilities it was pretty easy to figure out what we wanted to do. We thought that there should be a fairly quick ordering experience but we didn’t want to just sell fast food.”
“We’re creating products with the idea of them being pretty good quality rather than cheap,” Keller said.
The name Pullout was first suggested by their friend Jordan Huffman. A pullout is a place on the side of a highway or road where you can take a rest and relax at your own whimsy. You can stay a while or you can get back on the road as quickly as you like.
Breakfasts include burritos, biscuits and gravy, scones, sticky buns and more, along with espresso.
Lunch and dinner include hot sandwiches such as a Philly cheese steak and a shrimp po’ boy, and a variety of burgers and soups, chili and salads. Cold drinks, including juices, teas and beers, can be consumed in-house or taken to-go.
