Just ate there and the coney sauce was so spicy you could not eat the foot long.

It is hit or miss with their french fries being overcooked and tasteless, and you should never have to tell them leave them lightly brown. I normally get the super roaker burger with the better bun, but on 6/8/2013 I went with the regular bun since they don't put enough sauce on the super. I noticed on the 8th someone made a big mistake with the recipe since whatever they use to make it hot (red pepper?) that heat off the first bite was totally missing and a bitter taste of another spice was very noticible as it left a bad taste in my mouth after every bite. <br /> <br /> At least they didn't overcook the fries!

I usually go to Roake's about once a week. I love the coney dog. It has always been my favorite since the 70s, but lately they seem to be skimping on the coney sauce. I was there yesterday and the dog was dry. Very dissapointing.

I have been going to Roake's since the 1950's. We would drive all the way from North Portland. Now my daughter lives in Florida and and she has to go at least once when she is home. The Best!!!

I am lucky enough to live close to Roake's in Milwaukie. It is a close drive for those from Portland and worth the trip. Great food and the feeling of stepping back in time when ya order. ENJOY!

I have always rated Roake's Coney Dogs as the best in the world. Watching the waistline, I have not had a coney dog for a while.<br /> <br /> On Dec. 16th, I went to Roake's in Milwaukie, and ordered three coney dogs and an order of coney fries. Not all for me.<br /> <br /> I was very disappointed. The dogs were good and snapped when bit, but there was only a trace of the coney sauce on all three dogs. I thought it was just me but my wife commented about no sauce. In fact there was so little sauce all you could taste was the hot dog and onions. <br /> <br /> The coney fries were more like cheese fries and again where is the sauce. <br /> <br /> I do not know if they have a new cook who does not know how much to put on, or if Roake's has cut back to save costs. <br /> <br /> Needless to say, I was very disappointed and will probably try and find another Coney Dog stand that will actually put some sauce on their dogs, the way Roake's used to serve them.<br /> <br />

I drive up to Roake's at least once a month for the best chili dog since i used to live in L.A.,where chili dog stands are all over the place.<br /> I now live at the coast in Waldport Or.,that's a 3 to 4 hour drive for the best chili dogs.<br /> Then i usually head over to the Acropolis for entertainment then to the Bridgeport movie theater then home or stay overnight so i can have another dog! lol.<br /> Something about those steamed buns and the weiners they use and that great chili.<br /> Gil

I have only had the coney - - but I have had about a hundred of them over the years. Truly the BEST I have ever had. Have a friend coming back to Portland this week from some 4000 miles and he of course wants to meet up at ROAKES!
