If you have a hankering for a big, juicy hamburger, Washington County has a lineup of mouth-watering menu items at local restaurants to satisfy the craving:
Coleman’s 9N Shady Rest – Gales Creek
Choose from more than 20 hamburgers at this classic diner spot along the Wilson River Highway. We recommend their unique offerings: the “Landslide Burger,” which has grilled ham, cheddar and a fried egg; or the “Tillamook Burn,” which is a cajun-spiced patty with jalapenos, hot sauce, chipotle ketchup, grilled onions and pepper jack cheese. All this and tater tots, fries or mashed potatoes, too.
Cruise In Country Diner – Hillsboro
This diner with a ’50s and ’60s theme is not only known for its decor, but for delectable burgers as well as fries, shakes and local beer and wine. In addition, the beef, bacon, eggs and more are organic–and choose from burgers that are either beef, buffalo, chicken or veggie.
decarli Restaurant – Beaverton
Enjoy this burger crafted with beef from Oregon’s Painted Hills, oven-roasted tomatoes, grilled onions, lettuce, aioli and aged cheddar on a brioche bun–and it comes with fries. Best of all, it’s on the happy hour menu!
Five Guys Burgers & Fries – Beaverton
Now with two locations in Beaverton, the burgers at this chain are unique in that they’re made fresh, as are the fries. The menu is simple: hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and fries. Customize your burger with free toppings, which include out-of-the-ordinary options such as grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, green peppers and hot sauce, among the standard lettuce, relish and tomato.
Joe’s Burgers – Tigard
This burger joint had its humble beginnings in a kiosk at Bridgeport Village, and has since expanded to two more (full-size) restaurants in Portland. We love the kiosk for its simple goodness; Oregon all-natural beef and a menu consisting of burgers, hot dogs, fries, shakes and drinks. The dilemma is whether to order the chili cheese burger or the chili cheese fries.
Gogo Burgers – Beaverton
Enjoy your burger how you like it; you’re provided a fresh, open-faced patty and directed to use the condiment bar, which includes pickles and nearly a dozen sauces. For a supercharged burger, order the one with bacon and eggs!
We can’t fail to mention two Northwest restaurant establishments that serve up many burgers: Burgerville, which has four locations in the County and boasts Oregon Country Beef and seasonal offerings such as summer fruit milkshakes, and McMenamins, which has 10 locations in the County–all of which offer an assortment of fresh burgers, including the standard “Captain Neon” with blue cheese and bacon.
