Bring it on Down to Burgerville

My Original Cheeseburger Basket with Seasonal Yukon Gold Criss-Cut Fries

Another place I like to visit when I'm in the Portland area is Burgerville. (Don't you immediately hear Justin Timberlake singing that catchy little jingle from SNL? But with 'Omletteville' replaced by 'Burgerville.') Burgerville is the kind of fast food restaurant one might expect to find in Portland (or Portlandia). You can get a cheeseburger and fries, but the beef is sustainable, and the cheese is from Tillamook, and the fries are seasonal Yukon Gold Criss-Cut fries. When they're in season, you can even get Walla Walla onion rings, or sweet potato fries. Oh, and once you've finished eating, you put your wrappers and paper cups into the compost, instead of the trash. Burgerville even recycles cooking oil into biofuel. You get the idea. It's like the cult craze known as In-N-Out Burger in California (which I also love!), but with a definite Portland spin. And it's good. Very good.

Hazelnut and Chocolate Shake

Perhaps my favorite reason to visit Burgerville is the seasonal shake. This one is the chocolate hazelnut, made with hazelnut meal from growers just down the road from the restaurant in Cornelius, OR. Last time I visited, the shake flavor was blackberry. Yeah, blackberry, all of which were grown in Oregon, of course. Love it.
