The Price is Right. You can't beat the value here for drinks and food. My husband and I usually get one order of the fajitas and a pitcher of beer to share. The total with 20% tip is less than $20. Very much a neighborhood sort of place with lots of familiar faces. We love going there to watch the sporting events that we don't get at home. Only downside (for me) is that it's often chilly in there. Not sure if they turn the heat on at all! Oh well, if it keeps the prices down, I have no problem wearing a sweater!
Great place to grab a drink and relax. Great hidden gem I found since moving to LO a few weeks ago. I don't agree with others saying that the staff is rude... in my opinion they are nice, and not to bad on the eyes either. The pool is cheap or free depending on the night. Drinks are reasonable and they have drink specials on some nights. This is a great place to hang out with friends or to stop into after work. The bar is located in a strip mall so they do not have a covered smoking patio, if they did I would have gave Hanko's 5 stars.
Hanko's has rudest staff,and worst service in Portland.
--They don't know how to make even simple mixed drinks; when I explained how to make a Spanish coffee it turned out undrinkable (cold coffee, wrong liquor) (of course, I paid for it anyway, since they wouldn't replace it).
--A barmaid told my friend she can't return because she didn't leave a large enough tip (15% for horrible service).
--They overcharged for food, and the waitress started an argument with me when I explained the tab was too high. She got mad and made snide insults to me.
--It was an awful experience in every way; I'll never go back, and I'm sure they don't care a whit or they wouldn't treat customers like that.
--PS: I am a nice person and a low-maintenance customer, so these things didn't happen because I'm difficult.
strong drinks, pool tables, darts, cute girls... I go to Hanko's for the free UFC fights, cheap beer and strong drinks. The bar is much better now that it is smoke free and the staff are all cute, friendly and fast... chill cool place to hang with friends.
I went to Hanko's for the first time to watch a UFC pay per view after the heart breaking news that the City Sports Bar downtown was closing. Wasn't too impressed.
The good: cheap beer, plenty of seating, lots of pool tables and arcade games, food isn't bad.
The bad: Tv's and sound could be better and louder, servers/bartenders were rude.
I always tip cash because I know it can get taxed if you include it on your debit card. The servers here very rudely accused me of stiffing them after a more than generous cash tip. They were busy and understaffed, but that's no excuse to hassle about tips. I won't be going back.
Hankos is pure drama if you go there enough, lots of losers with nothing better to do. this place would be so much better if the locals wern't all supper lame. it's too bad te locals ( there every night) are so lame , other wise the bar kicks butt
Best cheesesteak in town; very friendly bar staff; a real "neighborhood" bar. Hanko's is a nice spot. Very friendly people. Menu is just average except a few things stand out. The Nacho plate is HUGE and really good. The philly-style cheesesteak is awesome. Menu changes each month. Bar staff is really friendly. This is definitely a neighborhood bar where everyone watches out for reach other. Go just a few times and you will feel like a regular. It is smokey - and hey, it's a sports bar so it is definitely not fancy. ok, kind of a dive - really. But fun and drinks are cheap. Go with some friends ..
alright after work. Alright place if you bring people you know. Has lots of entertainment, but lots of smoke and a hole in the wall feel.
NICE PLACE. Hanko's is a nice place to bring large groups to and enjoy the pool tables and sports television that the bar provides. I tasted some fries, but they didn't knock me off my feet. I would recommend this bar for bachelor's, large groups, and anyone else who enjoys the art of drinking while watching sports.
