Orange Works – Rural Restaurant

Where do you eat out when all you see around you are palm, olive and orange trees?  If you happen to be driving from Porterville to Lindsay on California Highway 65, there is only one answer.  Just outside Strathmore is the most popular rural restaurant between Bakersfield and Exeter, Orange Works.

Their fame and name came from the trees that surround the quaint wooden building.  They make their own orange ice cream.  You don’t have to eat your lunch first to have ice cream, but if you order their lunch special, you won’t mind at all.  For $7.99 you get an amazing sandwich, chips, a drink, and ice cream – orange or one other choice, or a combination of the two.You can eat outside almost all year long.Or you can eat inside.Many people eating here also purchase fresh farm products such as honey, or nuts that are also grown in Tulare County.So if you are ever in the neighborhood or out for a drive to see the country.  Drop by the Orange Works.  It’s famous in these parts.
