Try the poutine. Who would have thought Belgian fries, fried in duck fat and covered with Maine cheese curds and served with gravy could be so good?

“Was Expecting More”
Reviewed July 25, 2008

Was expecting Duckfat to be a 5 after all the hype I had heard about it. The food (including the fries) was good but I didn't find it exceptional. The paninis are well pressed but lacking a little in flavor and texture. I give it a better than average. Next time in Portland I may try Norm's instead, heck it is right next door.

“Didn't Like Fries Till I Ate Here”
Reviewed July 8, 2008

I had the best fries and milkshake EVER. We also had the meatloaf panini sandwich which was very good.

Small place, order at the counter and they will bring food to your table. My waistline is glad that they are not located near my home
