Hours: Mon-Fri, 11-5

The Story:

Milwaukie is excited for their first cart and so are the boaters and fisherman who make Milwaukie their starting point. The Steak Shack has opened right in downtown.

Dave and Chip opened the cart after working with the city to figure out what was needed. Being Milwaukie’s first, it took some partnership between the parties to understand the rules and get the cart open and Dave is elated. Dave hails from Toronto where he lived and worked for many years until he was brought to Portland with his wife’s work. While standing in line at Costco, he met Chip who is a trained chef and the relationship blossomed from there. Buy a cart, design a menu, open and feed the masses.

The cart is outfitted with a charbroiler with which they grill the ribeye steaks for the sandwiches. Dave couldn’t find a good steak sandwich in the area, so that is what inspired his menu. The ribeye is the perfect cut for this type of sandwich and they grilled it to perfection. We ordered it with every topping they had, so it was a bit messy, but sometimes you have to get dirty to enjoy a meal. They also serves burgers, grilled chicken and hot dogs.

The cart is located in the 76 station on the east side of McLoughlin directly across from the boat launch and park. A great location once the weather warm up and everyone comes down to enjoy the river. I’m looking forward to hearing about Dave’s plans to serve the boaters. If you’re down that way, drop on by. Dave and Chip are great to chat with and cook up some great sandwiches. Let them know Food Carts Portland sent ya.

  1. Great Steak Sandwiches, but out of the 6-8 times I have wanted to eat here in the last 6 month I have only been able to do so 3 times and likely will not try again, and tonight is no exception. Not open on the weekend, leaves early sometimes, and doesn’t pick up the phone to place order, which was the issue again tonight, to make sure they are open.
