Old School Portland Eateries

I'm trying to put together a comprehensive list of old school Portland restaurants to dine at, outside of my go-to favorites...a way to explore Portland's campy joints, wholes in the wall and hidden gems that never get the attention. The list would start something like this:

Saylor's Old Country Kitchen
Susan's Fish-n-chips
Rimsky-korsakoffee House

Farther out is perfectly fine, perhaps a boundary as far as St. John's North and Mt. Scott East..
Requirements would be independently owned and good food. About the good food thing, I want to eat it and like it, not that it has to be on par with Pok Pok and Le Pigeon or anything, but I don't want to waste my money and belly on gross food.

Would love any suggestions!
