Amazing hamburger and coney islands. This place has been operating for at least 50 years. This was our first time. We sat next to a couple who has eaten at Roake's for 47 years and a guy who as gone there for 40 years. The clientele was diverse-young kids, workers getting their lunch and families plus the folks who have... More

I grew up stopping at Roake's for a Coney Dog whenever I was on my way to camp at Jenning's Lodge. Now I live out of state and still stop by Roake's when I go home to Portland. Best ever!!!

Since I live about 2 miles away, I hit Roake's all the time for either lunch or dinner. I typically go for the chili burger...a good sized patty with that grilled burger taste, and chili that I easily finish. Or..the long sausage or long regular dog. A foot long that has that "snap". For a dog/burger place that looks old... More

We had lunch at Roake's in the middle of unpacking boxes after our cross-country move to the Portland area. We were tired, dirty, and stressed, but Roake's seemed to be the perfect restaurant to familiarize ourselves with the local scene. There is limited seating, but it is cozy and comfortable. The counter staff is friendly and welcoming. We could tell... More

I remember my grandma taking me here in the 80's, she remembers going there many years prior. It's a small space and there's a little bit of a wait, but the food is excellent. Love this little gem!

Oh my, this place was amazing. It's little "hole in the wall: type place with great prices and even better burgers and dogs. The platter of fries was more than enough for a family of three; they were tasty and made me wish I had ordered one of their shakes to dip them in. The burgers we ordered we great... More

People come here for the Burgers, Hot Dogs, French Fries and Milk Shakes. I'm all over their Hot Dogs....however, I would like to get the Fries too...but one "sin" a visit I tell myself. LOL I'm told, the Hot Dogs are a private blend (recipe unknown to us) and made by a specialty meat company. They are OUTSTANDING.... Want to... More
