Uncle Vinny's Eatery and Pizza - Portland, OR
The working class blue collar locals know where to eat. Uncle Vinny's is another restaurant in the northeast crowded even before noon by the working class locals.
Turkey Sandwich. That's a 1/2 sandwich order. The picture doesn't do this Dagwood justice. I ordered the Turkey because of it's proclaim of fame and because I was looking for a healthy option - notice the salad - so I wasn't expecting a USA obesity epidemic inducing sized sandwich.
The sandwich and salad were adeptly assembled. The monstrous sandwich comprised foccacia bread, garlic rosemary mayo, Swiss cheese, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. The vegetables were fresh and ripe leading to a snappy lively sandwich. It was a Turkey Sandwich worthy of its fame.
Uncle Vinny's is a decent eatery. The locals know that and probably want to keep that to themselves.
Restroom Rating: 7.2. Old but well maintained with personal touches and humor.
