We tasted a little bit of Heaven at Duckfat the other day. The fries &sandwich were terrific and the blueberry caramel milkshake was to die for. You just have to go off any diet regime and enjoy a super meal. Don't skip the donut holes! Mmmmmmmm!!!!! I would also like to mention that the service was outstanding--Nate was friendly, helpful...

This is a popular place in the Portland area to enjoy a lunch. Good french fries with a twist and a strain on the wallet. Panini that was good but nothing special. The duck fat thing left me wondering, what am I missing here? If you miss out because of the wait, don't feel bad.

I very much enjoyed the Duck fat fries they are so famous for! I love the Thai Chili dip but really it tasted like pimento cheese dip in a way. I also enjoyed the truffle Ketchup. I had the BGT and it was amazing. My husband had the pastrami and he was thinking the whole Duckfat thing was going to... More

Perhaps I expected more but the poutine could have been better. Not much in cheese curds or gravy. Portions were great and did enjoy the outside community dining.

The food was the best! We had their famous duck fat fries, they were AMAZING. We also had duck and corn salad, tomato fennel soup, veggie panini, and a sandwich board. All of the food we ordered tasted heavenly. The place is not very large, the wait for us was 45 minutes for lunch on a Sunday. I totally recommend... More

Yes, you have to wait but it is so worth it. Even if you're not a fry person (but really, with duck fat gravy, cheese curds and an egg, how can you not be???), the sandwiches are really tasty. Try the Pastrami if it's a special!

After reading numerous rave reviews for Duckfat, my boyfriend and I were excited to try it on our vacation. The wait was not bad at half an hour, wait staff was friendly and food was prompt. The food its self was just slightly above average. We got a loaded poutine to share (with egg and duck on it). While it... More

We ordered out and took our sandwiches, fries and sodas to the park. Absolutely delicious and would highly recommend. I especially enjoyed the specialty sodas!

Put your bags in your room and head to Duckfat. Should've mandatory for anyone visiting Portland. Fries, milkshake, pannini....as our waiter described it..gourmet junk food. Go, enjoy, repeat!
