Quick lunch with my daughter at Roakes. Couple of years ago I stopped here but was not impressed with the meal. I thought to try it again... And glad I did! Both burgers we got were great and it was quick service. To hot to eat inside the little place as the heat was cranked on this cold winter day.... More

This place is amazing! They provide great service, excellent timing ( no more than 8 mins for us), and DELICIOUS BURGERS! This is much better than Five guys! I would reccomend it to anyone!

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

Snappy dogs with perfect spice and meat blend. Soft bun on the outside with a grilled inside. Mild but spicy coney sauce and chunky onions. This is a great coney dog. Don't miss the coney fries. The place is a shack...figuratively and literally. The service isn't always the best. You eat out of plastic trays and are likely sitting on... More

Roake's is not a not a fancy place, it's just a little place that makes big old fashion hamburgers. Of course there are a lot of Hamburger joins out there, but if you want a really good hamburger with really good taste then you have to try Roake's. They have been in the same place for a really long time... More

Been in Oregon for over 30 years. This family owned business have been around and continue to be consistent with the flavor/taste of the Coney Island sauce. Great place if you want a quick fix for lunch, or dinner on the fly.
