Fodor's Expert Review Screen Door
The line that forms outside this Southern cooking restaurant during weekend brunch and dinner is as epic as the food itself, but you can more easily score a table if you come for weekday breakfast or lunch. A large, packed dining room with canned pickles and peppers along the walls, this Portland hot spot does justice to authentic Southern cooking. Try the fried chicken plate—two moist pieces of meat in crisp and peppery buttermilk batter, accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and collard greens cooked in bacon fat—or the Screen Door plate with your choice of four sides (consider the mac and cheese, creamy grits, and most any of the salads on the rotating seasonal menu).
