40 Greatest Restaurants In Portland
Sugarpine Drive-In
If you’re exploring the Gorge or find yourself in the outer edges of Portland, head to Sugarpine Drive-In in Troutdale for classic American cuisine with a farm-to-table approach.
While you can’t go wrong with any of the specials, the pulled pork Reuben is a can’t-miss, and don’t forget to leave room for a sundae topped with miso caramel.
Bollywood Theater
With low-hanging lights, walls papered in movie posters, and mismatched chairs, the eclectic atmosphere at Bollywood Theater is just as much of a draw as their delicious food.
For dinner, options include vegetarian vada pav (a potato dumpling on a roll with chutney) or the kati rolls with chicken, egg, pickled onion, and green chutney rolled in paratha.
Screen Door
Screen Door is notoriously popular with tourists in Portland, and rightly so, considering they serve up delicious cuisine with unmistakable Southern charm.
At either of their two locations, choose from fried and waffles, biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, cornmeal-crusted catfish, blackened rockfish, crawfish étouffée, and more.
Lardo started as a food cart and has expanded into a sandwich empire with four locations, including one in Las Vegas, all of which serve up delicious sandwiches.
Options include the porchetta sandwich; dirty fries with pork bits, Parmesan cheese, herbs, and marinated peppers; or their ever-changing "Chefwich" created by a local chef.
Named after Hawaii’s 808 area code, you’ll find all the Hawaiian classics at Ate-Oh-Ate, including Kalua pig, mochiko chicken, Spam musubi, and mac salad.
You can also choose Asian-inspired dishes like Korean chicken, kalbi short ribs, katsu, teriyaki tofu, or the Aina burger with pork belly, kimchi relish, onion, and spicy mayo.
