Triple J Deli

One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Not much on atmosphere but employees were great. Highly recommend. Subway Who?
The true sandwich shack! This place doesn't have all the bells and whistles or random useless crap on the walls but they have one thing! Awesome sandwiches! We ordered: Ducks, Owl and a Viking. Each sandwich was superb in its own way. Everything was fresh and the shop is extremely clean. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Last but certainly not least you get one hell of a bang for your buck here! HUGE sandwiches ranging from $6-$7.50, plenty of toppings and sauces to chose from. We loved our experience at Triple J Deli! Would definitely be back again.
Very nice little sandwich shop. Not a lot of selection, but what they do they do well. I had the pastrami with Swiss & bacon on French. Was great and the balance of ingredients was just right. Didn't eat my chips so I would have room to eat the whole sandwich. Appears that they are starting out small and adding menu items a few at a time. A great example of keep it simple and do it right. Will return next time I am in the area at lunchtime.

Mermaid Garden Cafe

501 Main St,Ste 101
Klamath Falls, 97601
Reviews:
Wow, my last review was in 2011, and it's probably overdue that I update things. Mermaid Cafe is a bright, cheerful cafe in the heart of downtown. It's only open on weekdays (dang it). They offer consistently delicious salads, wraps, homemade soups, and sandwiches. Lots of vegetarian options, and lots of veggies!! Mermaid gets really busy, so going earlier (11:30ish) is best, if you can swing it. I highly recommend their southwestern potato salad as a side. Yum. Soups are always outstanding too (they change daily...today I had a cup of roasted red pepper and sweet corn soup). Paninis and sandwiches are served in local bread from Green Blade Bakery. My current favorite is the grilled garden havarti panini. My mom enjoyed her wrap as well (it had arugula, pears, blue cheese, chicken, and other goodies in it). (My husband likes this place too; it's not just for the ladies!!)
Wonderful place for lunch. I had the Thai chicken wrap, hubby had the caprese wrap. Both were very good. This seemed like a true locals place.
Very upscale health food restaurant. Very pricey lunch prices. $9.50 for a sandwich. Granted, the sandwich was VERY delicious. However, we found the potato salad quite bland, and the salad was like grazing in a field. Like taking a big ol' bite of grass. Just not appetizing. However... the staff was VERY nice and the service was quick. All good things. If you are vegetarian or vegan, you would probably love this place. Otherwise you really only get a couple of options. Not my cup of tea... it should I say: not my bowl of grass.

The Waffle Hut

2065 Oregon Ave
Klamath Falls, 97601
Reviews:
Wow this place is a gem in Klamath Falls. The waffles are so good you could eat then totally plain, not to mention the awesome combos and other menu here. Plus, they are open late. We were literally having a horrible night driving through Oregon and this place was a god send-- tasty, cheap, and served cold beer too. What more could you want?
I had my first savory waffle here, and it was delicious! The waffle was flavorful with a nice burnt sugar coat on it. It was super moist and had a nice bite to it. I wish that the waffle was a bit crispier since it was on the softer side. My waffle was then topped with potato hash, mushrooms, spinach, ham, and cheese. The portion of each topping was generous. I was a bit scared about the combination of savory ingredients with waffles, but they actually complemented each other really well. The waffle wasn't too sweet, but the addition of the vegetables lightened up the dish as a whole, and were really refreshing. The only thing that I would change would be the raw mushrooms; I love mushrooms, but I think it would make the dish as a whole even better if they were sauteed in butter first. The restaurant is pretty small, and most customers seemed to be regulars because the waitress knew them by name and would talk to them. The waitress was prompt and attentive. She filled our water and coffee cups multiple times during our breakfast. Though the waitress was extremely friendly towards my family and I, her attitude and interactions with her coworkers were not very professional. She was complaining very loudly to the cook about her job, and then towards the waiter, their interactions were really tense and she was impatient with him. I'm not sure if this happens on a regular basis, but it did catch my attention. This is probably the only decent breakfast place in the area if you don't want fast food breakfast, and I was actually pleasantly surprised!
Difficult review. It appears to be a family owned diner with enthusiastic staff (probably part of the family, all mature in their 50's). Very relaxing and friendly. We had the waffle with banana and strawberry, and also the Greek omelette. The waffle was not a Belgian waffle. It was about half the size but thicker and the consistency and taste of a deep-fried doughnut and had texture and taste as though granulated sugar had been sprinkled upon it. It wasn't bad, just not what I would expect in a waffle. The fruit was fresh but was covered in a white creamy substance resembling mascarpone cheese(!). And had what tasted like and appeared to be a generous amount of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup drizzled over the top of it. It more resembled a sundae than a waffle. Although each element by itself, though unexpected, was not bad-tasting, the flavor combinations did not work for me. Looking at the other items on the menu (the special was waffle covered in melted cheese and pineapple), I suspect the cook put together whatever seemed to taste good to him, but not to the rest of us. So, that was a miss for me. As for the Greek omelette, it had fresh spinach, and sauteed onion and bell peppers and feta cheese. And it had canned black olives(!). The egg portion of the omelette as well seasoned and fluffy and tasted quite good as did the individual flavor components (except of course for the canned black olives). Kalamata olives should have been used and also Greek herbs and spices. Again, not a bad dish, just not what it was advertised to be. With nothing to tie the flavors together, it was a miss.

Lucero’s Taqueria

535 E Main St
Klamath Falls, 97601
Reviews:
In the former Dairy Queen across the street from Mills School, a barricade of white iron bars over the windows gives a forbidding appearance, but the aroma of authentic Mexican flavors invites you into Lucero's Taqueria. This friendlier, cozier alternative to Taqueria Las Morenas is just a couple blocks up East Main, and it boasts a broader menu than Las Morenas including pupusas. The secret of the pupusa's brilliant flavor and value has gotten out in larger cities, but I'm pretty sure that this is the only place peddling this comforting Salvadorean delight in the Klamath Basin. I tried a pupusa and two tacos al pastor during my first visit to Lucero's. The tacos contended toe-to-toe with those at Las Morenas on the flavor front, but they were packed a bit more generously, thus snatching the crown. The pupusa was different than others I've eaten...crispier, less moist, pounded flatter but with a larger diameter approaching a personal-sized pizza. Pupusas are always provided with salsa and curtido (sorta lika a spicy slaw of pickled carrots and cabbage). Unlike other curtidos I've experienced, this was mostly shaved carrots, but it was okay. Lucero's pupusas are not my favorite pupusas, but they were imminently edible and then some, and a good gullet-filling value for $2-3. Old Dairy Queens can be repurposed as Mexican restaurants pretty naturally, especially on the interior where the brickwork--seemingly in a state of arrested early decay--resembles a quaint little taqueria in old Mexico. I ate at an ancient place in Tecate with a similar vibe. I've loyally returned to Las Morenas each of the last dozen times I've visited K Falls, but from now on, I will be splitting my allegiance, and when I don't have enough time to eat at both, I will be choosing Lucero's as my new favorite.
After hearing about this place for 7 years, I finally went in. From the outside it is nothing fancy at all, in fact, it's a little scary - bars on the windows of an old Dairy Queen in arguably the worst neighborhood in town, but it IS right across the street from Mills Elementary School, so it's not really that bad a location at all. Inside there are four little tables. Pictures of their dishes adorn the walls to the right of the counter. It is behind this wall, in the kitchen, where the magic happens. I'm really not sure how this place, of all the would-be Mexican joints in town, serves the best Mexican food, but it does, by a mile! All the brick and mortar places pail in comparison to the complexity and authenticity that comes out of this tiny kitchen on East Main. In fact, I simply won't go anywhere else for my south-of-the-border fix. My go-to is the Adobada Burrito Supreme with everything, but I have had almost everything else and it's phenomenal. They also serve tongue & cheek too, which is something you can't get anywhere else that I know of. There are usually only a couple people working, but they are kind and the service is speedy. Great place to grab a lunch on the fly. I love this damn place! It is one our best kept secrets in the Basin.
Delicious. The pork pups was great and filling at $3.50! The place is legit. I ordered water and they asked if I wanted tap or bottled water. I paused and then had to remind myself that I was in America :)

Las Morenas Taquerias

813 E Main St
Klamath Falls, 97601
Reviews:
Well, pardon me while I gush about this joint! We shared an order of taquitos, which is not something that you would necessarily think could be awe inspiring. Yeah. Pork wrapped in the lightest fried tortilla, like a crisp egg roll. Guacamole with cilantro, which is what is supposed to be in there, with lime as it should be done. Lumpy, not gloppy, not pureed. We kept pausing to linger over it and exchange variations of "wow". My taco came in the usual two corn tortillas but the inner one was lightly fried, the outer one warm--this is the new way I am making mine at home. It doesn't seem like much but it adds to the taste and texture. The pastor, which everyone seems to have a different interpretation of, was a little sweet, a little sour, with spicing unique but in the neighborhood of a chorizo. I am probably describing it badly (even though thinking about this is making my mouth water). Just go order it, enjoy it and do a better job describing it in your review. Beans were scratch made. The enchilada was the folded corn tortilla with saucing. I had to look this up, because I knew it couldn't have had a standard cheddar on the inside. I think it is known as Queso Chihuahua. Melted real nice, but a little more bite and a slightly different taste; very nice! Queso anejo, kind of like a Romano cheese, by texture at least on top rather than what we see elsewhere. Sodas, by bottles and plastic liters. For this meal, we paid a little over $10 with drinks, which is just silly cheap! Divey, but reasonably clean. Staffed by nice professional guys. Clearly a neighborhood joint that I can not recommend enough! This is one of the best places I have seen for this type of food; praise I do not hand out easily.I just wish I could get my hands on it more often.
This place is very small and modest but the food is amazing! It's a very small place with few areas to sit but I always order to-go. The staff is prompt and friendly! It's one of my favorite places in town!
If you can get past the location and building, hands down the best Mexican food in town.

Nibbley’s Cafe

Reviews:
I've been coming to Klamath Falls for years but for some reason this resturant was never on our radar screen but tonight we googled best eateries in the area and voila. We just got back from eating there and the moment I entered the resturant the decor and overall ambiance was inviting, refreshing, and created a positive experience. The staff were very friendly and professional and meeting the owner Debra was fun and you could see her passion towards her resturant. The food was very tasty and served with attention to detail and equally impressive was the very reasonably priced items on the menu. I will pass my experience on to my fellow peers who travel to Klamath Falls in support of our organization. What a gem of a place and travelers heading through think seriously about stopping here instead of fast foods. Please pass on my comments to your staff Debra and we will be back in this week before our journey back to Sacramento.
Best tuna melt ever! Had their crisscross fries and they became excellent when dipped in their celery seed dressing....really! It was a fluke as I just wanted to taste the dressing. Both my husband and myself agreed. He had the meatball sandwich which he enjoyed immensely. Service was good...also good fresh brewed ice tea. The only reason for the four stars...he says that there's always room for improvement. Try Nibbleys...good menu choices and good size portions.
Was just passing through and the hotel receptionist suggested this place. It was much more fine dining than I was expecting from such a small local place. Everything I had was incredibly tasty. You got lots of different kinds of food for a reasonable price. And my waitress was friendly and helpful. She even helped me determine if there were falls in Klamath falls. Would go again! Try their house dressing. :)

Good food, but a little spendy for what you get.
How I miss this place! Whenever I think of Klamath Falls the Daily Bagel comes to mind. I'm no longer a resident it's one I the only things I miss, sipping on excellent coffee and enjoying a bagel with my sis, so care free and happy. Good memories.
I stopped here for about 6 hours while I waited for my Amtrak train to Emmeryville to arrive. The people who work here are great, for starters. They let us stay about an hour past closing and were super friendly about it. It was a Thursday night, aka, open mic night. The place had a real community atmosphere with people ranging from the toddler to the parent-of-adolescents age enjoying the music and coffee. Their coffee and pastries were delicious to boot. They had tons of organic and fair trade varieties of coffee and chocolates. Basically one of my favorite cafes, albeit very far from my house.

North Shore Hawaiian Plate Lunch

2750 Altamont Dr
Klamath Falls, 97603
Reviews:
This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. I would give it five stars, but their hours are a bit disappointing. They are only open until 6 during the week and are closed on weekends. Because of this, is has become my go to lunch stop. The portions are huge and totally worth the price. For a small order it's $7 and that includes the meat, rice, and green salad or mac salad. Trust me when I say that the small is more than enough for one person. I made the mistake of ordering the large ($8) my first time and didn't come close to finishing. The food is delicious. I've tried their teriyaki and korean chicken and have enjoyed both immensely. The gentlemen on staff are friendly and quick to help. You are in and out in a jiffy, which is nice on short lunch breaks. This place is a gem and I look forward to continue stopping in on a regular basis.
I've witnessed co-workers devour styrofoam take out containers filled with teriyaki chicken and rice from here, but this was my first attempt. I tried the large order of 1/2 teriyaki, 1/2 Korean chicken with rice and macaroni. Tasty! The large size is a lot of food, but for $8 it's a value play. The menu is simple and the service is fast.
While in the region of Klamath Falls, the King fancied himself a more exotic cuisine that can only come from a place of paradise. A paradise in the distance and beyond the horizon of the seas. A place called Hawaii. When arriving at said location, the exterior establishment looked quite grim and unappealing. However, being a adventurous King that I am, I persevered and entered. When entering the King was surprised that the laborers were mere fledglings. I asked the child behind the counter to suggest to the King what was their most satisfactory dish. Then the fledgling artisan said that the Teriyaki chicken was the favorite amongst their patrons, but the true delicacy was the Korean chicken. The King took the word of the hairless faced child and ordered the Korean chicken. My feast was given to me in a technology that the King has never seen. It was called Styrofoam. I dabbed some heated sauce with a chicken drawn on it for some added flavor and intensity of heat. Like I say, no food is worth eating unless you can feel it come morning. The chicken was delightfully made and the mac that came as a side was silky and added a much coolness to the spice given from the chicken. Even with its appalling exterior and young artisans that in this day and age do not care about treating a King as they should, surprised him quite a bit. They were very accommodating and made sure that The King was treated like royalty. I am quite happy to say that no one lost their heads after my meal.

Very good meal! Prompt service and the food was very toasty. I had the chicken strips lunch meal and it was dinner potion size and very good. My husband had an elk burger...Very good..homemade buns and quality meat. We stopped on a road trip and were very pleasantly surprised.
This is a truck stop diner so we came here not having high expectations. Upon entering the diner the first thing I noticed was the odor. It smelled of old dirty carpet and like it hadn't been aired out in over 10 years. The waitress was quite friendly and serves us promptly. The salad was wilted and lacking in the veggie department. My boyfriend ordered an elk burger with fries and I ordered a steak and fries. Both of our fries were so over cooked there was virtually no moisture left. The steak and elk burger was cooked fine but overall the meal was mediocre at best. Was expensive for the quality we received. Don't think we will return again, but this diner is in a great location for truckers with plenty of parking.
Very pleased. My son and I stopped after shooting clays for a late Sunday breakfast based on the other three reviews. They were right on track. I had the corned beef hash. It was cooked crispy on the outside and the eggs I ordered were done over easy just as asked (lots of places. Get this simple thing wrong) and even though there were potatoes in the hash it came with hash browns as well. My son had the bis kits and graveyard. Tried a taste and it was very goog. Gravy tasted homemade. Portions were to large to finish, so brought home leftovers. Will defiantly go back when we are in the area.
