Lardo started out as a food truck and morphed into a brick and mortar with lots of outdoor seating.
Placing your order starts with getting in line (usually a long line), getting to the counter, stating food choices and paying. Cashier gives you a number which is used to signify who placed the order.
Food is very good with a decent selection (lots of pork-based items but also beef, chicken, tuna and a few vegetarian offerings). If you have a big appetite or are more than one of you, definitely try the "Dirty Fries". Pretty decent selection of craft brews, a good craft root beer, small selection of refreshing cocktails (on weekends, Bloody Mary's tend to sell out early). Some indoor seating, but when warm, outdoor is the preference.
Understand there are 2 locations, but we only visited the Hawthorne location. Also, if you go to the Hawthorne, there is a "food pod" directly across the street that also has some good selections (the Pryo Pizza is killer).

Fun place for a tasty lunch and a brew. Perfect spot for the pork lover. You can have lardo, belly, meatballs, mortadella. I had the bahn mi with siracha mayo, light, tasty meatballs, pickled carrot and daikon, and cilantro. Excellent rolls. The mortadella had outstanding flavor. YUM!

Delicious sandwiches and wide choice of craft brews along with coffee and teas. Perfect outside dining with friends and pooches. Staff was really cool. Sorry we don't live in PDX!

Was just recently staying near the 12th/Washington location and popped in for lunch. Order at the counter and they bring it out; anything from a Pork Bahn Mi to Pork Belly sando. I had the Korean Pulled Pork with Kimchi...the rolls are outstanding; some of the best I've had. But the inside was so flavorful and spicy without being too much so. And the fries...oh wow. dusted with parmesan, sea salt and fried rosemary, it all makes for a tasty lunch. This definitely ties, though in a different way, with Bunk Sandwiches.
