Best New Pub Burgers in Portland

Want to get a burger tonight? We got you.

Burger, Pop Tavern

The basic burger at Pop Tavern is a welcome treat we haven't seen in a while—a classic lettuce, tomato, ketchup and mustard burger for a mere $6.50, with a thick-ass, juicy patty that comes a little pink unless you ask otherwise. It arrives with Portland's finest crinkle fries, salted just so.

Hoisin-Sichuan Burger, Tryst

Tryst's hoisin-Sichuan burger—a mere $7 at happy hour—is an ode to butter and sweetness, with a hint of numbing spice. The $11 regular-hours version comes accompanied by furikake fries that come with a ginger "ketchup" that rivals swanky Marshall's Haute Sauce for sweet lemongrass flavor.

Dad's Burger, Home

I hate to break it to you, but at Home, Dad is abusive. This is maybe the most excessive kitchen-sink burger in town—bacon, bratwurst, sauerkraut, cream cheese and house dirty sauce on a third of a pound of hand-formed patty, with a pile of fries beside. You probably don't need to add an egg for a dollar.
