Over the last couple of years, Bend has experienced somewhat of a food cart boom. The trend started with the addition of The Lot on Bend’s Westside and ever since various food cart pods and shelters have popped up throughout Central Oregon. This summer, Sunriver welcomes the addition of our own food cart lot in the Business Park. Elkibou’s is the newest addition to the Sunriver food cart park scene and includes a variety of styles of food as well as a beer garden serving your favorite craft beverages.
Elkibou’s Food Cart Park in Sunriver
The newest addition to the Sunriver food and entertainment scene comes in the form of Elkibou’s Food Cart Park, an outdoor food cart park with yard games, beer garden and live music. Elkibou’s strives to bring the community together with a variety of dining options, as well as a comfortable space to gather with family and friends, new and old. Whether dancing along to live, local music or participating in great conversation around the fire with like-minded visitors, you’ll find the relaxing community vibe you seek at Elkibou’s — without having to drive into Bend.

Several new Sunriver food carts now call Elkibou’s their permanent home. With an array of options to choose from, you no longer have to worry about the fatigue that can come from having to eat at the same couple restaurants during every visit.

As if food and beer aren’t enough, Elkibou’s has created a welcoming, community environment where you can play yard games like cornhole with friends or dance to live music from local musicians. Come relax on the lawn, warm your fingers by the firepit after sunset and spend the day enjoying all that Sunriver’s first food cart park as to offer.
