    The Roxy: Loud, cheap, open late!

    by yonsei Written Jan 6, 2003

    In a city that's a bit lacking in late-night eating spots, you'll ignore the bad 80s music and neon lights and be grateful for the Roxy anyway. A retro sandwich-and-fries-type diner, you'll probably have a good time here if you like greasy food. Sometimes there's some raunchy stuff pasted on the walls, so don't bring the kids -- or your parents.

    The Original Hotcake and Steak House: Mmm... mushroom burgers...

    the breakfast menu

    Open twenty-four hours and easy to get to on any of the buses that cross the Ross Island Bridge, the Hotcake House is a classic favorite for good, filling food at 3 a.m. or whenever you got the munchies. Everyone here's pretty friendly, although you'll have to deal with a lot of us punk kids singing along to the jukebox and stuff. When it's busy you'll have to wait a long time just to get some scrambled eggs or blueberry pancakes, and that's real hard since you can see and smell everything that's being cooked. If your chorizo's a little bland, just smother it with some more ketchup and tabasco.

    Rice Junkies: It's healthy! It's fast! It's BENTO!

    Rice junkies

    This is a fast eatery that serves a good, cheap, run of the mill Bento and other assorted dishes. You can get if for here or to go and most major credit cards are accepted. I can never finish the rice but I love the chicken. People look at me like a freak when I am here as I love to pour on the Sirachi hot sauce. It's not the best bento in Portland but it is convenient for the downtown folks.

    Favorite Dish: The plain Chicken bento makes a good quick lunch.

    The Virginia Cafe: for a bite after shopping go to.....

    Up for napkin art?

    This is a great place to meet with a group for lunch, dinner, and drinks. They have a full menu and prompt service. The booths make for a cozy atmosphere that is not in the least romantic. For the last two times I've visited Portland since leaving I've muttered the words to my best friend who lives here - "Meet me at the Virginia." It's the first place I always want to go after the airport. Reservations are not accepted.

    Favorite Dish: The Fish and Chips are great as well as the BLT. Hmmm, both being good greasy foods I just may have to say that this is the best spot for me to start a night of bar hopping or clubbing.

    La Sirenita: La Sirenita-Authentic Mexican Food

    by Rude_boy22 Written Sep 20, 2002

    Though not the greatest place for ambience, La Sirenita is the best place to go for authentic Mexican food in Portland. Always fresh, and with quality ingredients considering it is dirt cheap, Sirenita is almost always packed with the Alberta Street crowd during the lunch hour.

    Favorite Dish: The enchiladas are colossal beasts, covered in cheese and sour cream. The fajita platters are also great, and the tacos and burritos are superb.

    Newport Bay Restaurant - at...

    Newport Bay Restaurant - at River Place Marina
    This is a floating restaurant so you have quite a view of the marina and river activity. On a clear day you can see Mt Hood. The city skyline is right in front of you and you can follow whatever goes up and down the Willamette.

    Favorite Dish: the salmon was delicious

    There always seems to be a line outside the door of Voodoo Donuts on 3rd Street in downtown Portland.

    I will write more about this later but wanted to get the PIX online. Worth going to, we had blue corn pancakes and corned beef hash. Both were YUMMY!

    Fun and/ or Fast Food: There Are Subways Everywhere

    by mcpangie Written Apr 16, 2005

    I swear I saw at least 3 Subway Sandwhich restaurants downtown. This is the one I could see from my hotel window. I did eat a sandwich there for lunch one day.
