This place popped up in our neighborhood not long ago and it was time to test their brunch! The $10 bottomless mimosas and a Bloody Mary greeted us on Saturday morning. The brunch menu was far from the normal boring array of Benedict and chicken waffles. I had some trouble deciding where to start. With advice from the waitress I... More

Again we returned to Stubborn Mule in Joseph, Oregon, near the foot of beautiful Wallowa Lake. This time we tried new foods, some suggested by waiter JOSH who was wonderful! Quiet demeanor, but very informative and friendly. If you are lucky enough to be there for the Stroganoff "soup" you will agree the "soup" is delicious like no other Stroganoff... More

We were on a motorcycle weekend get-away with 6 couples. The Stubborn Mule is only a couple of blocks of the Indian Lodge Motel. They have a large bar , several TV's, & slot machines. Also have a separate eating area if you bring the kids. Good beer menu, as well as food.

We ordered burgers and drinks. The drinks came immediately and then we waited close to an hour for our burgers. They were crowded when we arrived, but most tables cleared out within a few minutes. Our waiter was attentive, just took a long time for food.

The Stubborn Mule has a bar which has a dining area and another adjacent room which is suitable for families with children. It seems the Stubborn Mule is also very popular with the locals. The service is very good. We like to stop in for "Taco Tuesdays" where fresh home made soft shell tacos are $2 each. If you're not... More

On a Saturday night during our stay in Joseph we had the Prime Rib Dinner that the Stubborn Mule offers on Saturday nights. One of the best prime rib dinners ever. The prime rib appeared to be close to 1# and came with mashed potatoes (other types were available), salad, a vegetable and a texas toast type offering. This dinner... More
