If it looks like a dive it probably is a dive. You squeeze too many tables into too small a space & don't have enough staff (nor are they efficient). Avoid this place

Dropped in around 8 one evening for dinner. Generally packed with 20-30 year olds. Food was very good with burgers with wafer cut fries topping the list. Limited but adequate draft beer choices.

We stopped in here for lunch and it was wonderful. The wait staffis very accommodating and helpful. The food is very good too. We ordered the black bean sliders and they were plentiful and delicious. We'll be back here again when we visit Portland.
