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

Great place to "share" a burger! First time I ordered a full burger and ate it for days and it was still great.

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.

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

Its a bar, but the burgers are worth trying. I have been trying to eat an Effie burger in one sitting for 40 years. Still haven't done it. Will be back a couple more times this summer to try again. If you don't suceed, try try again.

Effie's is a must to get a huge burger and it's good too. The building looks tacky but only adds to the fun of Lewiston, Idaho. 1 burger is great to split but big guys get one for themselves. Small place and can be crowded. Have fun
