There's a lot of hype about this place and some of it is for good reason. It's a cool, local business that uses a lot of local ingredients, it recycles, etc. etc. The food is good, no doubt but both times I've visited I wonder if it was really worth the long wait. Typically, there is a long line that... More

We decided to stop at the Pine State Biscuit for an early lunch. We got there about 10:45 on a weekday - place was pack and the line was out the door. We ordered, waited about 10 minutes to get a seat and another 15 minutes to get our food - definitely not the quickest but the people watching was... More

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.
