“Always open, but watch out for the bar crowd rush”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Enjoy this restaurant, but do not like the bar crowds that frequent this place. Gotta hit it at the right time to miss the long lines and drunk crowds. Great food at a decent price.

The only reason it gets this much is because of nostalgia. It used to be the place to go, but now it is just too expensive and way too greasy.

I finally tried this place for some breakfast at night. Hotcakes were really good. I will definitely return for some late night eats in the future.

“The best pancakes anywhere”
Reviewed October 1, 2009

I've never had better pancakes, and the country fried steak is just awesome. Hash browns, bacon, why is it all so damn good? This is the place for a delicious huge breakfast and Portland's parade of characters. Great staff of guys who have it down to a simple science.
