An ‘everything’ hamburger, including a fried egg, is served piping hot at the friendly Bluebird Inn in Bickleton, WA. This very rural, very small community, has an elementary school, a combined high and middle schools and about three school buses which serve the educational needs of the large rural farming region around it. One church, one cemetery and about ninety people. This small community claims to have the oldest rodeo in the state and the oldest carousel said to be only one of three of its type left. Lastly, it is known as the Blue Bird capital of the world. Then there is the Bluebird Inn – the Bluebird Inn is said (but the Brick in Roslyn also makes this claim!) to be Washington State’s oldest continuously operating tavern, opened in 1882, seven years prior to Washington statehood. The establishment as warm and inviting, many come here for a quick beer or sandwich, and on Sundays after church it is the place for lunch after the service. Nelda Flores, the current owner, was a special education school bus driver in nearby Yakima for many years. The food is down to earth and rib sticking good.
This is the only building in the town said not to have been burnt down at any time and the 1903 Brunswick pool table with leather pockets is a popular item with visitors. On a cold day, the wood stove is stoked and keeps the interior warm for those of us coming in out of the cold. If by chance you find yourself between Goldendale and Mabton one day, stop in, have a good lunch and and tell Nelda I said you would!
