  • If you haven't tried it, you should. Doesn't matter what, it's all good.
  • Northwest Sliders & Grilled Tillamook Cheese Sandwich & Tomato Soup.
  • Guy loved the gourmet burger sliders made with basil mayonnaise, and the "primo" mushroom and bacon mac 'n' cheese, adding, "Here's a guy who is making it work."
  • On a cool, cloudy Portland afternoon, nothing beats a grilled cheese sandwich (add bacon and tomato), tomato soup, and a Hawaiian Sunset soda!
  • Definitely visit on Friday's. The meatloaf is out of this world! One of my favorite spots in Portland.
  • Grilled cheese and tomato soup is amazing!! Perfect for a rainy afternoon.
  • Eat here! Everything is incredible!
  • WW Cheap Eats 2011 favorites: the sliders ($7) and the ice cream float ($3.50 - $4).
  • Mash potatoes were great. Complements to the friendly chef. Great food and service
  • Grilled cheese and tomato soup for around $8. Very tasty. Great comfort food.
  • Go on a Friday and get the meatloaf, probably one of the best meals I had during the whole of my portland stay! Plus the sodas and shakes are awesome :)
  • Small menu. Small grill. Awesome shakes and sodas. A legend in Portland!
  • The grilled cheese is fab, and the decor is cute. I don't usually drink sodium, but here it's a must, with many flavored to try.
  • Check out Blueplate Lunch Counter as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives
  • Blueplate's mac is threaded with basil, thyme and rosemary, and it packs a slight kick thanks to pepper Jack cheese sauce.
  • I loved it
  • Small menu but what they do, they do well.
  • zomg grilled cheese & tomato soup are amazing :) and the staff there is so friendly!
  • Get there early, it's a very tiny place and order the tomato soup and grilled cheese. Sit at the counter if you can and maybe talk with chef. One of the coolest places in Portland.
  • First visit, featured on Food network Diners, DriveIns & Dives
