Poaprtland On The Cheap

Eats:  Buffets

Updated January 2016

For best buffet prices, lunch is the way to go, and weekdays are usually cheaper than weekends.  Also, check for coupons in the Entertainment book and your local Clipper Coupon newspaper.  Finally, for ratings and reviews check out Yelp and Citysearch.

Applebee's:  All you can eat soup and salad served Monday - Saturday from 11:00am - 3:00pm at participating locations.  No longer running this promotion.

Home Town Buffet:  4 locations.  Get a FREE buffet meal for signing up for their e-Club (buy 1, get 1 free)!  Click here.
Okay, these places are NOT cheap.  But if you can avoid the 'filler food' and just load up on the expensive meats, then you'll be coming out ahead, and with a few more pounds...

Brazil Grill:  Pay one price and get unlimited servings of Churrasco style meats, salad bar and side dishes.  See web site for menu.  It's a steep $39.95 for adults, but if you just opt for the salad bar, it will set you back $17.95.  We've never been here and have not seen a coupon or discount offered.

Fogo De Chao:  Reviews have been stellar since this place opened in 2014; lunch will set you back $29.50 (salad bar only, $22.50) and dinner a steep $49.50 (salad bar only, $26.50).  Located in downtown Portland, (503) 241-0900.
