Burgers

The 20-minute drive out to Oregon's wine country might not sound worth it for a burger, but that hasn't stopped people from all over the state (and country) from making the trek just for a bite of their famous Jumbo Burgers. The rustic, string-bulb-lit bar surprisingly doles out simple creations that look less like Portland's usual artisan suspects and more like something you'd get at a drive-thru window -- two greasy patties, American cheese, special sauce, and traditional toppings nestled between two halves of a soft, sesame bun. It's utterly massive, but that's nothing a cold draft beer can't help wash down.
