    Lets Eat Cinnabar Sams- Willow Creek CA

    Cinnabar Sam's in Willow Creek on the west side of Hwy 299 is a great stop. The food is good, but the interior has lots of history. Inside are old photo's from the local past along with old logging and mining equiptment. Looking around you will find a short history lessen of the local area. The only thing that may offend some folks is more than a couple of dead animals on the wall, not to mention a couple of decommissioned rifles. If that doesn't bother you I recommend you stop and eat. It is on Hwy 299 on the east end of town.
    It's the journey, not the destination.

    I have relatives who live in Willow Creek. In fact, my aunt works at one of the restaurants up there. Can't be that many in Willow Creek. Maybe you saw her there. Her name is Jan.

    Small world, huh?!

    Best wishes,

    There is only one restrant and one or two burger places. She probably works at Cinnabar Sams. I don't remember the two ladies names, but one may have been her.

    I haven't been in Willow Creek since I hauled lumber from Burnt Ranch and Hoopa back in the 1950s. My main haul at that time was from Mad River close to Dinsmore on hiway 36.

    Gonna get back up there on my Goldwing one of these days and try the roads on a bike instead of an 18 wheeler, give that cafe a try........Papa-Ken

    I ate at Sam's last night, it was the only place open after 8 (closes at 9pm). The food was very good and the atmosphere was excellent. Definitely worth a stop. The pizza place in town was pretty good, too. There's also a Mexican restraunt, but we didn't try it.

    We stayed the night at the Big Foot Inn in Willow Creek. A bit rustic, but comfortable rooms, and very quiet! Made a nice change from the chain motels next to the freeway.
