Loved the atmosphere and customer service! The menu was simple. Order your favorite childhood meal at their food cart, which is open super late, then hop on the burger bus, making sure to watch your head (almost hit my head lol). They'll call your name...More

I tryed this place last year when I was in town for a week. They have the best selection of grilled cheese sandwiches. You can either eat them on the picnic table of find a cozy spot in the old bus.

Yes, they do! They had a fine gluten free bread. This place is simple, but oh so unique! Of all the delicious food we ate in Portland, this meal was the most memorable because it was a blast to the past with a twist!
