Burgers are a favourite food in Oregon. Unusual burger restaurants have proliferated across the region like wildfire, engulfing the tri-state region, and char-grilling an old American favourite. Nine of our favourite burger restaurants in Oregon that best embody this new entrepreneurial attitude are listed below.
Drive-In Big Burger, Molalla, Oregon
For more than 50 years, Big Burger Drive-In has provided food to Molalla, Oregon. What made them successful? consistency in service and taste. All burgers come with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and homemade sauce. Seven different burgers are available, ranging from the basic patty to the bacon triple cheeseburger. If you want a lighter option, choose the Boca Burger. The menu is completed by sandwiches, fries, milkshakes, and sides. If you’re game for an adventure, try their deep-fried mushrooms.
Numerous Killer Burger Locations
With seven Oregon stores and counting, Killer Burger is one of the tiny chains in the Oregon/Washington state region that is expanding the quickest. Each burger weighs one-third pounds, is made entirely of beef, and comes with bacon and fries. The menu is always being updated with fresh and distinctive burgers like the Meathead (bacon, two patties, cheddar, grilled onion, and house sauce). Choose the Peanut-Butter-Pickle-Bacon Killer Burger burger if you can only eat one (bacon, PB sauce, smoky house sauce, mayo, grilled onion, and pickle).
Numerous sites of Little Big Burger
Little Big Burger is a more recent chain with locations throughout Oregon that offers mouthwatering sliders in a chic atmosphere. A quarter pound of “cascade natural beef, brioche buns, local cheeses, fresh veggies, and Camden’s catsup” are the main ingredients in every burger. Pick between the veggie burger, cheese burger, or hamburger. To complete it, add a serving of truffle fries and a root beer float. Outstanding local microbrew and cider selections are available.
Burgerville, Various Sites
Burgerville is a privately held chain with five locations in Oregon: in the Dalles, Albany, Corvallis, Oregon City, and Canby. Burgerville had just one restaurant, but it has since expanded to fill its current location by upholding the principles that guided its founding, including sticking to locally sourced, fresh food. Sustainability is a key component of their business strategy. The seasonal menu is updated to feature the top Northwest ingredients. There are six distinct types of main burgers available, including the Tillamook Cheeseburger, which is served on a sesame seed bun with Tillamook cheddar, mayonnaise, ketchup, pickles, tomato, and lettuce.
Numerous sites for Joe’s Burgers
An Oregon college has a location for the neighbourhood chain Joe’s Burgers. In addition to Portland State University, Oregon State University, and the University of Oregon, Joe’s Burgers is also available in Tigard, Oregon. Although the menus at each location vary a little, you can always expect the same succulent burgers, fries, and hot dogs. To make the most of your visit, get the Black and Blue burger, which is topped with blue cheese crumbles, jalapenos, bacon, onion rings, mayo, lettuce, and tomato.
Bridgeside Family Dining, Cascade Locks, OR
drive-in eatery Clarks, which later changed its name to Charburger, is now known as Bridgeside Family Dining. The new owners state that they intend to keep serving char-roast burgers while also offering additional menu items at reasonable prices.
