“Charming diner atmosphere...terrible burgers!”
Reviewed March 14, 2009

This restaurant "won" a neighborhood burger battle title of "most popular". Too bad my first visit was disappointing. Our burgers arrived burnt to a crisp on one side of the patty, cheese thrown on at last minute, served not melted. I had a burnt taste in my mouth long after leaving the restaurant. It's a shame because it seems to be a family run retro sort of place. They need to watch their quality control on the burgers if they want to be known for them! For a great burger around Portland try Stanich's, or Helvetia Tavern.

As with any establishment, we do make mistakes. Obviously we made more than one here. However, an old adage applies here. "If you didn't like it, please tell US immediately. If you did like it, please tell everybody else." Unfortunately, the reviewer chose not to say anything to us, instead writing at least 2 negative reviews for all the world to see after only one trip to our place. We have customers who have been coming in since before we took over in 1989. Not every meal has been delivered with perfection, but we have always tried to correct any problems OF WHICH WE ARE INFORMED. Please read all the reviews, then come try us out. I do not think you'll be disappointed.

Greasy as hell, but pretty darn cheap, delicious, and friendly, especially if you are one of the many regulars that frequent this little gem on Sandy.
