The Best Burger in Portland, Oregon

We had one of the best burgers ever at Slow Bar in Portland, Oregon. The Slowburger contains ½ pound of juicy perfectly cooked Strawberry Mountain Natural Beef, gooey gruyere cheese, 2 crisp yet sweet onion rings, butter lettuce, tangy pickle relish nestled on a soft homemade seeded bun. Served with crisp hand cut French fries, 2 people can share this $9 delicious oversized hamburger. Portland Monthly Magazine voted Slowbar as one of the top 25 restaurants with meals under $25 and the Slowburger is showcased on this month’s cover. If you are visiting Portland, Oregon, we recommend that you add Slow Bar to your “eatinerary”.
