Post STP Dinner Recommendations

JamesSanders | Jul 12, 2012 03:57 PM

Hoping for a few good Chowhound recommendations for dinner following Saturday's STP. For the non-riders, STP is the annual Seattle to Portland bicycle ride. It's a little over 200 miles and our group (4) will be doing a one-day ride. So, here are the key criteria:

1) Must be located downtown (or reasonably near the St. John's Bridge or elsewhere along Route 30 on the way into PDX);

2) It can't involve a meaningful wait. So, the place must either take reservations or the anticipated wait must be less than 15 minutes. Quick service is also a plus as we'll be hungry.
3) High caloric food is a plus, but not necessary. Spicy or high acide is not ideal, as a long day on a bike tends to result in a sour stomach.

We get down to PDX periodically and are fans of Pigeon, Pok Pok (too far), Wildwood, Clyde Common, etc. Have not been to anything new the last few years.

Thanks in advance for any help!
