Metzger Reviews

When I grew up there, it was a small town. In many ways it still is, but the things to do in nearby Tigard are more upscale now than they used to be.

People used to know everyone and there were neighborhood block parties. But no longer. A lot of new people have moved in and out and never really became part of the community. When I was a kid it was 5 stars. But now it's more of a 3.
