Go during the off season. While they have great food it’s not worth the insane wait.

Duck Fat sounds gross but they are awesome. Sandwiches, salads and fries...but it's the fries that people line out the door for. Go around 11am before the lunch rush.

Everything on the menu is amazing. The service for to go orders is less than stellar, but if you sit (And don't mind a crowd) it's much better.

Don't think. Just go. We went for, what else, the fries. Specifically, the poutine fries with duck fat gravy, cheese curds, and chives. Heavenly. Really wanted to try the duck fat fried donuts, but had to save room for food elsewhere. I got a locally made Allagash beer to go along with, which was superb.

Our first stop for food in Portland (our entire trip to this city was essentially planned around food, no lies). We decided to limit ourselves to the poutine, as we'd pretty much heard that was the must-have thing on the menu. It was delicious and I can officially recommend that as a must-have thing on this menu. I also tried the Ginger-Zinger soda, which was also quite refreshing (I had two, in fact). The place is small, but fun, with a back wall filled with magnetic poetry for patrons to play around with. I'm sure ours were woefully inappropriate. Such is life.

This is some of the best eats in town and there's always a line. Don't miss the tasty poutine made with you guessed it, duck fat! Yum!

Duck fat is little on the pricey side, but totally worth it if you have a few extra dollars in your pocket. All of their food is amazing, I love the fries with their unique sauces!

Known for their fries with many sauce choices, Duck Fat also has delicious sandwiches and good local beer. Only downside is it's crowded so you may need to get a cone of fries to go.

Stopped by for fries fried in duck fat to go for snacking on while walking around town. The fries were good with the garlic dipping sauce, and I was happy they gave me a couple of fiddlehead ferns to taste for fun. That was nice.

Honolulu may have Duck Butt, but Portland has Duck Fat. For all the duck themed restaurants out there, I have yet to be disappointed. This odd mixed menu of sandwiches, charcuterie, and ice cream shakes is punctuated by their signature French fries, which are made in sizzling duck fat.

The seating is cozy in a nice way, and the service was attentive and friendly.

Not sure Sandwich Shops is the right category, but their sandwiches are really good. Almost as good as the fries!
