About Bombs Away

In August 1991, Chef John Huyck moved to Corvallis, Oregon, and opened Bombs Away Café. Bombs Away’s menu – then and now – features Mexican, southwestern and Cajun traditional dishes, and homemade desserts.

For 19 years, John owned and operated Bombs Away, building a legacy of excellence in creative food preparation, friendly service, and a deep connection to the arts. In 2010, John sold Bombs Away to Camille and Todd Palmer, two Oregon State University professors with strong ties to Corvallis. Chef Curtis Monette has assumed the duties in the kitchen, maintaining the high standards for quality, creativity and flavor for which Bombs Away is well known. In the time the Palmers have owned Bombs Away, the nicest compliment they have received is “Bombs has new owners? We had no idea!” We continue to honor John’s commitment to spicy food from local/organic ingredients, Northwest microbrewed-beer and wines, and live entertainment from Corvallis, regional and national performers.

We are always looking to the future, setting responsible goals for Bombs Away. Our vision incorporates serving organic/local produce and hormone/antibiotic free meats and dairy. We feel that driving the restaurant in this direction is the responsible path for two reasons. First, the integrity and quality of the product sold will increase and second, it will support an industry (organic and clean farming) that is an important foundation of the community.
In addition to taking a more natural step in the products we sell, our goal is for Bombs Away Café, along with other local restaurants, to be a national model for sustainable restaurants. We feel that sustainability is very important in order to attempt to reduce the impact that restaurants have on the environment. The increasing market for natural products ensures that Bombs Away Café is moving forward along a responsible path.
