The Whit’s Best Eats

Words by Delaney Rea | Photo by Michaela Barnes Of all the Eugene districts and neighborhoods, the Whiteaker is perhaps the single most bustling and diverse in terms of the restaurants it plays host to. While you won’t find the cheapest eats in town here, the Whiteaker (commonly referred to as “the Whit”) is a great destination for finer dining, detours from familiar taste palates and turning any dinner into an event. It should be mentioned that the Whit isn’t quite the same since the closing of one particularly iconic eatery; R.I.P. Papa’s Soul Food Kitchen. Tacovore This isn’t your grandparents’ taco joint. If it is, you have some seriously food-enlightened elders.
