Update this Bar - Review/Comment on this Bar
BarFly's Review of The OverlookJust about the closest thing to a real diner that Portland has to offer - huge menu, with breakfast served all day and lots of Greek specialties, heaping portions, plenty of booths and counter seating, and waitresses that call everyone "Hon'". Cheap, strong drinks. Sit-around fireplace.

Still THE best place to get a plate of biscuits and gravy in North Portland. Fuck what anyone else says, this is the spot. Just about anything on their breakfast menu is outstanding. Service has always been iffy; if they're Greek they will most likely be great, if they are hired staff you never know what you can get. Sixty year old in a wolf t-shirt coughing in hacks while she pours your coffee. Old black guys arguing about names in boxing nobody has cared about for decades in the corner. Endless games of two-spot Keno that never win. Fuck I miss Sunday morning hangovers in North Portland.
The staff are fast, friendly, and pour strong drinks. The food is reasonably priced, varied, and good. Its a great place to nurse a hangover, smoke, and get out of the scene.
