    The wife and I were out running errands on Sunday and decided to try the "Cruise In" country diner at the corner of SW Farmington Rd and SW River Rd in Hillsboro.

    Any of you that are long time Hillsboro/Aloha residents probably remember this place from the past as the Twin Oaks bubblegum. Used to be kind of a rough crowd, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights and the cops would routinely get called there to break up fights.

    Glad to say it has new owners and they have turned it into kind of a 50's/60's retro diner complete with lots of pics of vintage cars. The burgers are awesome as well as the home made french fries. Check it out if you are out that way some time.

    BTW, I have no connection with the owners or the business.

    It's pretty cool. The doors to the restrooms look like the front of old gas pumps.

    I have driven by this place countless times and never tried it. I just may have to stop in there myself!

    When it was still the Twin Oaks bubblegum I would have told you not to bother, but it's pretty nice now. The wife and I will definitely be going back. They are going to have a little jazz band playing there this Saturday evening.
