PDX - Cheap eats downtown

heading downtown tomorrow for an early movie. Want to grab lunch first. What are the best choices for a reasonable lunch? Even great cheap eats? Thanks.

  1. Superdog! The one on the S. Park Blocks is open on the weekend. My fave is the Zweigle white hot (from the Rochester NY area):

    If you have a sandwich at Kenny & Zuke's, you'll get two meals out of it...maybe not cheap, but a good value.

    I think Hot Pot City is open on Sunday, though that is at the south edge of downtown. Great time of year for it, though!

    I think the Flying Elephants in Fox Tower is open on Sundays (an offshoot of Elephant's deli) - lots of choices under $5 there.

    I'm guessing the Rialto is open (do they actually close? ;o

        I live in the SW Hills. We have no 'neighborhood' spots.
