Unlike many tours, in which the meals were included in the price of the tour and so prices were not noted on the menus, this menu has prices for four table d’hôte meals. For $2.50 (about $20 today), auto dealers could order Columbia River salmon, lamb chops, or stuff capon; for $3.75 (about $30 today) they could have a charcoal broiled sirloin steak. All of these came with juice, fruit, or soup; whipped potatoes; asparagus Hollandaise; blueberry muffins; head lettuce with Thousand Island dressing; and a choice of desserts and beverages.
