They are made to order and pair perfectly with a pint of beer. Crunchy and golden, they will burn your mouth if you eat them too fast, so cool them down with a side of ranch. Rennie’s Landing‘s tater tots: one of the best bar foods available near the University of Oregon.

A Rennie’s staple, these tots always come fresh from the fryer to your table with a side of ranch. If you want to be super adventurous, they also serve Cheesy Bacon Tots. Rennie’s website describes them as “tots with melted Tillamook cheddar & real bacon.” This huge basket of cheese and bacon covered tots is perfect for sharing and is priced at only $5.25, a great value.

Peter VanderBogart, who works at Rennie’s, says that in a single day they serve up to 50 baskets of tots. He couldn’t even begin to guess how many they serve in a week…that’s A LOT of tots. He also mentioned that they are the most popular food order at Rennie’s simply “because they are cheap and delicious.”
