We are from the Midwest so places like this are new to us. It was fun splitting the Effie burger. Food was really good, fast service too. The building is a bit run down and could be fixed up a little, but it fits in with the rest of the town too.

This place is not just a tavern. I had heard about these burgers for so long that I had to finally try one. I tried a quarter of one, actually. It is quite a burger!

We’d heard nothing but amazing things about Effie’s but haven’t made it around to try it. We also checked out some of the TripAdvisor reviews and based on how big the burgers are, we ordered 5 half burgers ($7.50 ea) with a large order of Fries & Curley Fries. My Brother-In-Law said when they got there, he said they had... More

An old fashioned diner with a bit of history and funky fun. As promised, the burger was a pound of meat and greasy and delicious. Also, the prices were very reasonable and the atmosphere makes it a good value. A fun place to stop if you're in Hell's Canyon.

We stopped here for lunch based on reviews here on Tripadvisor. They were accurate. This is a very small place but they have huge hamburgers! And the burgers were excellent. I would recommend this place if you want a good hamburger! What a find! Plus our waitress was so very charming and friendly. It was July 4th and I'm glad... More
