    ...'national' chains when out of state, simply because you expect (at least) passable food and service.

    I keep forgetting that it is ALL down to the franchisee, in the end!

      The town was just Baker in '70; the "City" hadn't yet been restored to its name. I don't know the current state of the DQ, but Baker City now has one of the best Oregon Trail Interpretive Centers there is, plus a great stretch of authentic Oregon Trail that visitors can walk along.

      It's a nice little town.
