We came here for brunch because it's next to Stumptown and I am not sure why it's so crowded. I found it overpriced, the food mediocre and the service just absolutely sucked. In Portland, there is so much other better restaurants than this place fof brunch.

The food is definitely good and fresh. While we had a particular issue with getting the right dish, the staff was very friendly and worked to fix it right away.

Great Deli food, far far from the east coast --- pastrami, knish & lentil soup were great and plate of pickled goodies were really good

I've been wanting to eat here for the past few years, but my trips to Portland never really worked for that. This time, I planned on being able to eat breakfast there before our meetings. I had the pastrami and eggs and it was great. The smoky salty pastrami was a perfect compliment for scrambled eggs and I can't wait... More

As a former New Yorker raised in a neighborhood with several Synagogues, Delis, bagelries, and even a Kosher pizza place, I have a chip on my shoulder about what a "real delicatessen" is supposed to be. All New Yorkers say this, by the way. So when friends here in Portland, OR, decided we should go to yet another "NY style"... More

I've visited Kenny & Zuke's multiple times, both for breakfast and lunch, and have never been disappointed. The variety of benedicts for breakfast are unique and delicious, while the pastrami and corned beef make for amazing sandwiches. Their assortment of beers and other beverages aren't your average drink list, either. This funky place almost always has a line, but seating... More

I found this place last year and had a very good reubens on rye. This year I tried their breakfast along with another reuben plus a tasty knish. I don't think you can go wrong eating here.

We met some locals for breakfast here two days ago and it was perfect. First, the 6 of us had a table for 8 - so the squirmy ones could do just that. One year old Nora LOVED the French toast - a bite on a fork and a bite in the hand. We had very good eggs w fixings.... More

Thanks to our friend Ken, we had a most glorious and satisfying lunch on a equally glorious and sunny Sunday in Portland! I normally go for the veggie options, but Ken told us no one does pastrami like Kenny and Zukes! And so I shared a Ruben sandwich with my friend Zoye because it way too much for my little... More
