We were treated very coldly and practically had to beg to order. Server acted like we were bothering her for her having to do her job. Service was barely there. Burger is gigantic and enough to feed 4. Good burger but nothing worth sitting there...More

Quirky little place with quirky small town wait staff and crazy good hamburgers the size of a dinner plate. 1 pound hamburgers on specially baked huge buns! A must for out of town visitors!

If you happen to be driving by Lewiston ID and looking for a place to eat, I would recommend stopping by Effie's. Bring your appetite or a friend/buddy to split the food with, unless you are hungry. Try the Burger and an order of fries....More

Effie's is a Lewiston icon for burgers and has been there for decades. Has to be on the list.
