    Main Event
    Downtown Vancouver

    There's one on the east side of town but downtown is closer to me.

    Nice sports bar with a restaurant portion in the same room so it seems nice and roomy.

    The food is way above Bar food, I don't drink or watch sports but I do like food lol.

    They have a ton of stuff on tap if your a beer drinker and a fully stocked bar with a few fruffy drinks on the menu my wife likes.

    Reasonable prices and we always have had great service.:)

    The wife and I have a couple that really come to mind. Lupe's Escape and Lil Coopers Town, both in Aloha. They have great food.

    It's a reasonably good place, I can feed the brood (4 of us) with drinks for right around 100.00

    The food is a good value for the price, beers suit my tastes, the youngest loves the mozzarella sticks, wife loves the baked potato skins and the buffalo burgers... Oldest likes the fish tacos... And I enjoy the HopStorm IPA or Jeremiah Red red ale... With fish & chips, or a nice steak or burger or wings...

    Plus the service is good, and personable... Carlos is a great server!

    Great food and good prices. THEE ABSOLUTE BEST French fries ever! They blanch them in cold water and then finish frying them.

    Why you ask?

    They have the best burgers, fries and shakes a man could ask for. Oh, whats that have some free peanuts while I wait for my food?! Dont mind if I do, sir!

    They yell out the orders, they play older music and are usually near busy areas so I can get my creepy people watchin on while I wait for my food. :p

    But swrioisly, as a burger guy.. THEY have exactly what Ive come to personally prefer in a burger joint.

    In-N-Out you say? Bah.. Those weak fries represent the even more sloppy hooker burger they peddle as "wild". To which I say NAY. :cool:

    Depends. What are you in the mood for?

    All PDX - west side

    Mexican - I second Lupe's. I was just there on Thursday.
    American: BJs - not bad, the wife likes it and you can get a beer.

    Beer - Orenco Tap House
    Bar: APV - Beer and food - the wife and I like it better than BJs -
    Bar: Helvetia_T@vern - bring cash. This ain't Burger King, you don't get it your way. I was just there on Friday.
    Steak: Oswego Grill $35
    Steak: Urban Farmer $75 (downtown)
    Meat: Brazil Grill. (downtown) Don't be a rookie, the salads are for suckers.
    Italian: Nonna Emilias
    Burgers: Annies
    Chinese: China Town (includes Dim Sum)
    Chinese: Taste of Sichuan
    Burritos: Don Chillitos
    Breakfast: Biscuts
    Breakfast: Black Bear
    Breakfast: Tom's Pancakes
    Viet Namese: Bambuza
    German: Otto and Anita's Pickle Soup. Yum.

    Tualitin / Shewood ways -
    Roses - Sherwood. I usually stop there after at a day at Tri-County.
    Dicky Joes - I have been there once, it was good (and Cabellas is near by)
    Claim Jumper - it is a chain steak house ...

    Sayler's - on the east side, of course I am mad at them for pulling out of Beaverton. Porterhouse.

    Theres some new Banh Mi place near 185th & Walker - I think I went to the same place just off the 205 and it was good. Look for the French Flag colors.

    There is a nice burger shack in Milwaukie, I met a guy there to buy his pistol once. Roakes?

    Why is there no good steak house in Hillsboro?

    I am not a fan of Indian.

    For Thai I liked Thai Orchid, but the one in Hillsboro closed.

    Veggie ... um, right, um, never had an urge for a Vegetarian place.

    I hear there is a chicken sandwich place just opened 185th & 26 -- the line has been there since last week!

    I left off BBQ - 'cause ... it is hard to find good consistent BBQ. My favorite is the Ranch House - but Olympia is a bit far for lunch. There are a couple around town ie: Slabtown.

    Fish - I usually goto McGraths or McCormicks but typically once per year.

    Special occasions - Red Tail Golf: Stock Pot

    I miss Friar Tucks. I haven't been there in like 20 years.

    Good thing I am not hungry.

    Two thumbs up for Andina. It's great Peruvian fusion. Delores the owner is great lady from Lima Peru...

    My wife, as a Peruvian native, confirms the authenticity of their dishes... Great food, reasonable prices and great atmosphere...

    Well, I don't know that I have a true favorite, but I do like:

    Lil Cooperstown

    Oregon City



    Village Bar and Grill

    I like a variety of things, but I'm always on the lookout for the perfect French Dip sandwich. I appreciate a good burger too, but usually I'm disappointed - a lot of bad burgers out there - I mostly prefer to make my own.

    And Loco Moco at Ohana - not quite as good as what I had in Hawaii, but a darn fine 2nd place.

    And for the once a year or so trip near Sunriver - my daughter proclaims their fries the best - and they do a darn fine French dip too.

    Have you tried Ohana over in Milwaukie? I haven't compared them to Noho's (yet), but they do some very nice Hawaiian style teriyaki and mac salad too.
