Did I miss something? Drop me a note!
How did I make this list and why did I pick who I did? For this list, I focused on and researched locally-owned small businesses in Hood River proper. Other places included in this list simply marketed well and showed up in my Instagram feed, so I included them. I'm happy to add additional White Salmon, Parkdale, Odell, etc. places, if they'd (or you'd) like to reach out with a copy of their menus. Grocery stores like Safeway and Rosauers also typically offer a takeout menu or quick options as well. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
