Woke up late today

BFG,

Though Pine State has been on my mind since we talked about it, I have to admit that we only wound up going there for lunch today because the place we were attempting to go to originally (Blue Plate, also featured on Diners, Etc.) is closed Sundays. However, since we were (relatively) in the neighborhood, Pine State was definitely a suitable plan B.

We got there around 12:30 or so, and there was a line out the door that had clearly been growing steadily throughout the morning. The front of the place is all windows, so you have a chance to read the menu before you get to the counter to order. We stood in line for close to 30 minutes, and I admittedly had to make a clutch decision when it was time to order because everything sounded so delicious. I opted for the McIsley (fried chicken, pickles, honey and mustard) while my boyfriend kept it simple with a chicken biscuit with sausage gravy and bacon. I also got some gourmet chocolate milk to drink, and Beaver got some Cheerwine Soda, which apparently is more of a midwest thing, so he was excited to see it here in PDX.

I've already told Beaver that we need to go back ASAP so I can try the other sandwich I was debating (the Wedgie). The food was incredibly delicious and super filling. The pickles and honey actually went really well together, and mustard added just enough spice. I tried a bite of the sausage gravy, too, which was just as tasty as you'd expect. All in all, it's a solid place to eat, and we're both grateful for the recommendation.
