Seriously, though. The wait is CRAZY Sunday afternoons. I would assume Saturdays as well. We always go to the one on Alberta. The most recent time I went was in the morning at about 7:45--more manageable line but still didn't walk right up and order. It was a few minutes. It is amazing though and so worth it. They have...

We went to the location on Division Street (1100 SE Division) and were delighted not to find a line at 1:15pm for lunch. I was with a group of 5 and everyone was very happy with their orders. Nobody shared...that was telling! The biscuits were fluffy and flavorful, the fried chicken wasn't too greasy, and the fried green tomatoes were... More

After reading so many amazing Pine State reviews, my husband and I could not wait to indulge on our recent weekend getaway to Portland. Let me just be clear--there was nothing wrong with our experience by any means. Super friendly staff, clean environment and quick service, but the food (in my opinion) was just ok. I could certainly return, but... More

Ì've read most of the reviews below and I can concur with most of them. You will stand in line, you will place your order, you will wait for you food (though the woman at the register told us it would be 20 minutes for the food), and when the food came, it was glorious. My only disagreement is with... More

I had the Reggie Deluxe which is the most popular breakfast biscuit ....it was delicious but very rich you could share it since it was heavy for breakfast ..... Not sure of their hours at Pine State but the Reggie Deluxe would be great before heading home after a late night of partying . It's a great place really love... More

Tried to go here for breakfast, but the line was out the door. Went back around two and there were only a few people in line ahead of us. I had The Reggie & fries with gravy. The food was good, but it took 25 minutes. So go here when you're not in a hurry.

No kidding. If you go to Portland, OR and don't go stop at Pine State at least once, you're whole trip was a sham. Okay, that's an exaggeration, but it's definitely worth stoping by. I ordered the biscuits with jam and honey. Once I had finished, I only wanted to order more for dessert.

My mouth is watering while I am writing this review. I have had most of their sandwiches and really one is better then the other. It is definitely a must stop. I would tell you to share one because there are a few other great stops on the same street for foodies like salt and straw!

Yes, there is a wait, but well worth it in my opinion. This is straight forward just good, comfort food. The biscuits are perfect... period. The chicken is flavorful with a tasty breading and moist inside. I had The Wedgie, chicken biscuit with lettuce, a fried green tomato, and blue cheese dressing. This place is a must visit if you're... More

This is one of my fav restaurants in Portland. I have gone to the NE and SE locations and always had a long wait. You wait in line, then order, then wait and try to snag a table, then you get the best breakfast you have ever had. These are not just biscuits. They are breakfast sandwiches 6" tall. They... More
