The last burger we had during our Portland trip was at Little Big Burger, a local burger chain. The menu is short & to the point, offering three burgers, fries, sodas, and a float. We got cheeseburgers and an order of fries to share. The burger offerings are a hamburger, cheeseburger, and veggie burger.
Their cheeseburgers are made up of 1/4 lb. Cascade Natural Beef patties, choice of Tillamook cheddar, swiss, chevre, or blue (went with the cheddar), lettuce, onion, pickles, and Camden’s Catsup. They’re all cooked medium (unless specified) and served on local brioche buns. The shoestring fries are made from Yukon Gold potatoes and seasoned with white truffle oil and sea salt.
My burger was cooked more to medium-well, unfortunately. Besides that, it tasted good. I enjoyed the use of Camden’s Catsup, as it packed a slight edge.
The truffle fries were tasty, too. I’ve had several truffle fries in the past that had either too much truffle oil or salt. Luckily, the fries here weren’t overly done. They also come with a dipping sauce (perhaps a secret sauce?), which I found to be just alright.
This wasn’t our favorite burger on the trip, but for $3.75, it’s not a bad place to check out if you’re looking for a quick, affordable burger.
