The donut burger's become something of a weird staple, but Portland's The Original claims ownership of it, and's probably responsible for a spike in national diabetes.
The Original WOW! Burger is a classic diner burger, but they make their own buns in-house, and you get to assemble them yourself! Choose between all the usual toppings, a plethora of sauces, and finish it with as much cheese, baconm and avocado as you can fit on their beautiful buns.
This place is all about sustainable sushi, using responsibly-sourced ingredients while also supporting marine stewardship organizations such as Salmon Nation, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Blue Ocean Institute. But, as important as wildlife conservancy is, Bamboo Sushi's green initiative extends beyond sourcing and advocacy to include close monitoring of power and water use, as well as the use of biodegradable containers. This commitment has garnered Bamboo Sushi "Certified Green Restaurant" status with the Green Restaurant Association, which is pretty darn impressive in our book.
Skyline offers diner-ish digs (Red-checked floor? Check!) where you can scarf your usual steak burger, but wash it down the right way thanks to an full bar rocking delicious cocktails.
With enormous burgers, a menu with just about everything you can fry on it, and 40+ milkshakes, Humdinger is your classic greasy spoon serving up diner eats that are sure to please.
BB specializes in ridiculous burgers and sandwiches, including the absolutely huge Burgermeister (two beef patties, two slices of American cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, pickles, Thousand Island dressing, and THREE pieces of bun). Good luck!
Since 1943, Produce Row -- then just a breakfast cafe -- was slinging incredible eats to the people of Portland. And although the past 50 years have seen changes of ownership and intention (it was once a pub), today the Eastside Industrial venue has found harmonious success as a gastropub, known for both its creative American menu and beer/spirits combos. Stop by to enjoy a bite in Produce Row's sprawling back patio, open all year round.
With 65 beers on tap and a steak that rivals any meatery in town, Acropolis brings new meaning to the word "strip" at one of Portland's most famous stripperies.
The Old Gold in North Portland is somewhere between a neighborhood bar and a hip cocktail joint. It prides itself on having one of the largest whiskey collections in Portland, and though the stock is always changing, it's full of bourbon, rye, and whiskey from Japan, Canada, Ireland, and Scotland. Custom whiskey flights and pairings are available, as are house-made picklebacks. The bar also serves standout pub fare like smoked gouda grilled cheese, elk burgers, and caramelized onion-topped mac & cheese.
