Located in an upscale Pearl District strip mall with a dry cleaner hardware store and tonsorial parlor the always-busy Nancy's provides another sort of necessity the kind of homey diner-style food that's hard to find in many more authentic Portland neighborhoods. We're talking classic BLTs ($6.99) big thick shakes ($4.29) and burgers ($7.59) that fill you up without sending you on a guilt trip. (NJ)
