What are the qualities that make for the best burger in Portland?  Well, we’ve got something for everyone, from the old-school fried burger patty with American cheese, to a fancy Kobe beef gourmet burger stacked high on a toasted bun, and of course mini burgers and sliders for Happy Hour in Portland are always a great choice.  In fact, some of the best burger deals in Portland are offered Downtown:  check Oba, Bluehour, Carafe, and 50 Plates, just to name a few.

If it’s a classic burger you’re after, try Red Coach or Nob Hill Bar and Grill.  For something a little more upscale, try Carafe, VQ, or Higgins.  The happy hours at 50 plates, Ten-01, and Oba are popular after work, and Brunch Box is a great place to grab a burger for lunch.
