My friends and I visited McMenamins because of our varied taste. One of us is vegetarian, while the others are serious meat eaters. I had a classic burger that was very tasty. My vegetarian friend had the hummus plate and a bowl of delicious soup. The food and atmosphere were great. Plus this location is close to the University of... More

If you're familiar with the McMenamin's brand chain of quirky, franchised bar/restaurants, then you already know to expect above average pub-grub and exclusive beers. What defines this, the E 19th Street Cafe McMenamin's, from the rest is the atmosphere it cultivates. Located within walking distance of the southeastern corner of the UO campus, the 19th Steet Cafe is one of... More

At busy times they, like all McMenamins, are understaffed. Good crew though and they try hard. Usual McFare but with a couple of local twists to it. Really reasonable to park and chill, or to get ready for an event at Matt-Knight-.Arena

We were on our way to Beppe & Gianni's Trattoria and not looking forward to an hour wait when we passed right by the 19th Street Cafe and the name McMenamins said to us: FUN--GET IN HERE! So we ran in, found it semi-deserted on December 31st and ordered a burger, salad, clam chowder and chicken & pumpkin mole enchilada--all... More

They have great staff. Shawn always remembers my name and makes sure I get my food ASAP. The burgers are good and Monday night special is top notch. My only complaint is they always seem to be short-handed. The servers are always racing trying to get the customers happy while not enough help.

The East 19th Street Cafe is a classic McMenamins venue near the University. The food is mainly the classics of burgers and sandwiches. The restaurant has two sides, one for sit down dinners and the other skewed more for fun with friends including pool tables and table shuffle board. They also serve the McMenamins list of microbrews.

My opinion: just ok. Neither good not bad. I always forget, the burgers have a sauce I don't like. NOT their fault, 100% mine. Tater tots are great.... Beer is good. Nice atmosphere.... Good service, ok food. Go.again? Yes.... But go out of my way, no.

Love McMenamins. This is a cool little location near the University of Oregon. As usual, delicious cajun tots and beer. Service was great at my last visit. Love happy hour!!

Good fish and chips, good burger (said my friend) and excellent soup tonight. The soup was corn, potato and red pepper and it was the best. I would order it again. Had an IPA which was very good. Not fancy but it was fun. I like McM's. This was a good one. Recommended
