“we are sold on this place's meats !”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We were about to entertain some friends and tried this place for the steaks...and OMG were we impressed. The quality of the meat is unsurpassed in taste and texture....and the staff are happy and helpful. The prices are very high compared to a market but we find it very worth it. The marbling content is high which gives a great flavor we have been missing for years with our overly lean conscious societal fad. It is also a great place for lunch and we also occasionally have them make us a burger on the spot (delicious) and they have some great side dishes to go along.

“Excellent Quality food, basic interior”
Reviewed 9 October 2011

Its mostly a butcher shop, but they also serve hot lunches and early dinners. The have a mixed pork and beef burger which is delicious and lean. I also had their cheese-steak which is very messy but great. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, and will talk with you until you make the right decision. Cost on the meats is steep but the meals are pretty normally priced.

However it doesn't have many tables- and it is usually pretty busy for being on a backroad at the edge of town. Good omen for the food, but it makes finding a seat tough sometimes.

“Best Meat & Restaurant in Bend Fer Sure!”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Pono Farm and Fine Meats butcher shop/restaurant was an amazing find. The sandwiches are huge. I have had both the hamburger and BLT on two separate visits, both times going home with half a sandwich to eat for another meal. My four year old daughter loves their hot dogs and french fries. I know I can count on her eating when we go there (which at times can be a problem). Their sides are amazing! My favorite was the cucumber salad. Not sure why the last review stated the meat was salty, we did not feel that way at all.
We also purchase the ground beef for BBQ's at home. Yes, it is more expensive then the grocery store, but I know it is of the best quality, and the tastiest meat we have ever had!

“if you like salt and don't mind $$$$$”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

Based on the 2 raving reviews, we decided to pick up meat at this location for a BBQ during our recent visit in town. The meat was pricy, so we pick a pre-marinated meat and sauages. They are all too salty to enjoy. We were planning to be there for lunch the next day, but all voted not to go. The service was very friendly.

“Forget atmosphere, if you want quality and quantity eat here.”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

Pono raises the beef and pork it serves. The meat used to make the burgers, steaks, sandwiches and sausages is excellent. The food will satisfy even the biggest food snobs. The French Dip and the Steak and Frites are off the hook. You won't leave hungry. The sides are delicious and change often. Fresh, local ingredients make this the best lunch place in town.
