I'll be staying in Troutdale on Thursday evening, just passing through.. I'll be too tired to care are about driving into the big city by myself so I'm looking for some tips on nearby places, exit 17 I-84.. Nothing upscale, something funky or down home is just fine. I'm not a sea food eater. A Mexican or Asian joint in a strip mall that doesn't make a single person feel alone is what I'll looking for. Or Italian or American or something else. Anything but Denny's and Burger King.
Also any recs for a Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs breakfast/brunch on the I-205 to I-5 route in the morning. .
