We stopped Portland for a meal and break from driving. The fries are excellent and shouldn't be missed. The broccoli and couscous salad is a great mix of different ingredients that melt in your mouth. Our waitress recommended the English cream milkshake and it was...More

Only had to wait 15 minutes during a weekday lunch time. Fries are to die for. Seasoned perfectly. The right amount of grease to know they will be tasty but also a little crispy. Added the Thai Chili Mayo- spicy and the Truffle Ketchup- what...More

Simple and good. Limited menu, little on the pricey side but worth every bite. The area inside is quite small but comfortable. We would try it again. I will say they have the best fries and milkshakes that my cousin and I have ever had!...More

Great place for lunch or dinner. The fries and condiments were amazing. The sandwiches were exceptional. Andrew took great care of us during our visit.

I don't get it. I got a meatloaf panini and could barely see the meatloaf, the fries were just ok. If it wasn't for the sauces it would be less than memorable for me. If you enjoy waiting for a below average panini and ok...More
