El Camino Real

220 W Lincoln Ave
Portland, 47371
Reviews:
Authentic Mexican dishes served hot and fresh. Quality and quantity above average. Try their Mexican Buffet. Their selection off the menu is also very good. Skip Taco Bell and try some real traditional Mexican style foods.
There are many choices of EATERIES in Portland. I picked this one, because of the Trip Advisor REVIEWS, and they proved to be correct. Easy to find, next DG & MARSH, but back off of the "Main Drag." The atmosphere is quite friendly, DECOR interesting, servers CORDIAL, & plenty of friendly servers. Multiple rooms provide space for privacy, or groups. FOOD was VERY GOOD !!
El Camino is your normal, run-of-the-mill Mexican Restaurant. Nothing flashy, nothing special. Chips & salsa from a jar w/metallic taste start off every meal. Several friends have said their steaks are great but I've had several different Mexican dishes & I always ask the same question when I leave..."Why did I come back again?" If anything on the Menu is made fresh than I can't taste it...everything seems to have been processed in Geneva @ Red Gold, stored in a wharehouse for a few years & than served here...sadly its one of Portland's better Restaurants but that doesn't mean this place is good...its not.

Pit's can be a little rough on the weekends, but their food more than makes up for it. Daily specials of home cooked, inexpensive food in large portions. Liver and onions on Mondays is fantastic!!

I usually do not go to fast food places but this place is pretty good for a quick sandwich. Food was prepared properly and was hot. The restaurant was clean and well lite.
This place tends to be slow. The drive thru typically takes longer then most BKs. The Whopper Wednesdays is definitely a plus.

Reviews:
Food is what you would expect at a fast food place. However, service here really does not even come close to what you would expect at a McDonald's. Do yourself a favor and drive to Albany. That McDonald's is excellent, great food and great friendly service. What a difference a 15 mile drive will make.

Reviews:
This is a "Cluckin Bell". The food is of normal quality. The staff tends to lack positive attitude. They haven't messed up my orders, so I can take that. Drive thru is typically quick.

Buffalo Wings & Rings

1204 W Votaw St.
Portland, 47371
Reviews:
It's an okay place. The service tends to lack. I've been here a few times and its very hit and miss. Some trips the waiters have been prompt and great, other times you're lucky to get a refill during your stay. The food is good, but you can tell some items are just frozen bagged items that they just heat up.
I agree with Yin Q - good food, great service. I had a chili cheese dog last night and then went back today for a gyro. Excellent menu and overall, much better than Buffalo Wild Wings. Some of the guys I was with complained about too much sauce on their wings - so I'd recommend ordering wings dry and getting sauce on the side. Enjoy!
Wing were not very big or hot. Price was a bit high. Guess you just cannot beat KFC. They did give us something else in place of the wings. Staff was really good and the place inside is nice.

Richards Family Restaurant

1615 N Meridian St
Portland, 47371
Reviews:
My grandpa, dad, and I were in town to visit relatives and look at gravestones with ancestors' names. My grandpa's cousin has lived in Portland most or all of her life, and her (now deceased) husband was the much-beloved mayor for a number of years. She took us to Richards for some greasy small town food and some stories of the old days. Richards (a regional chain) has a reputation as good -- not terrible, not spectacular -- food, and while I've never visited the Richards location 40 minutes from where I live, I figured this place would represent local culture as good as any other place, so I was agreeable to the idea. This restaurant lived up to the reputation -- good. Sure, it was a little worn in spots. Sure, the waitress was sort of a cliche, calling us each "Hon" in a raspy sweety-smoker voice. In other words: perfect, and the experience would have been less if she had been any different. The food? Well, y'know, pretty good, not flashy, exactly how it should be. I can't remember what any of us had, though I think Aunt Letha had the liver and onions. Oddly enough, this experience has made me more likely to visit the Richards location nearest me. I'll definitely choose them over Applebee's, Chili's, TGIFridees, etc., the types of restaurants need to make a huge flashy deal over mediocre food and garish decor -- both intended to impress local yokels and people with pedestrian taste who want to feel trendy. Richards won me over.
We have came here with friends for dinner. Fortunately the friends made up for the really bad meal. The food was horrible, the meat was freezer burned and the salad bar was really bad. The dessert was good and the service was very good. You cannot blame the bad food on the waitress. We have dinner with the friends again but not at this place.
My buddy wanted to eat some home cooked meal and we weren't sure where to go here in Portland, IN. The place we originally went to eat was closed and we already did Buffalo Rings and Things. We drove by this little place and said, "What the Heck!" and decided to give it a shot. Now walking in, you're not too impressed, restaurant is divided into two halves, smoking and non-smoking. You grab a menu and seat yourself. Restaurant is has kind of a grimy sticky feel to it and the carpeting is spotted and stained. Menu is really not to big, some chicken dishes, chicken fried steak, burgers, and some other basic items. I ordered a mozzarella chicken; fried chicken breast covered with a slice of mozzarella cheese on a bed of spaghetti. Also requested a salad and home fries on the side. Clientel is mostly locals, small town folks coming in wearing bib overalls or whatever they wear around the house. Waitress was very young, unsure of herself and not very expedient. But pleasant enough, after all she is still in high school. Meal came rather quickly, my salad with ranch dressing was pretty standard, greens were fresh and dressing was from a bottle. The mozzarella chicken wasn't bad, nicely fried chicken on a bed of decent pasta and marinara sauce. Home fries were dynamite, I would come back for breakfast just for the potatoes. There was also a decent peice of garlic bread that went with the order. For dessert, blueberry pie, also delicious. All this for under 8 bucks. Can't beat that with a stick. Definitely a local spot to get some greasy food cheap. But you can't overlook the fact that this is a greasy spoon.
