For the third year running, Burger Week brings you limited edition, $5 burgers from your favorite Portland bars and restaurants, for one week only! This year the promotion will run Aug 10-16, giving you just one week to try as many burgers as you can from over 30 participating establishments! To get you prepared, we'll be previewing each Burger Week burger over the next couple weeks so that you can prioritize your game plan.

THE VENUE: Foster Burger


THE MOUTHWATERING DETAILS: Take a perfectly delicious cheeseburger, with everything that is right about a cheeseburger: beef patty, slices of red onion and pickles, something green (in this case, peppery baby arugula) and put it on a beautiful sesame seed brioche. Then, put a diamond ring on that bitch (or in this case, sublime roasted garlic-truffle aïoli), and you’ll have an idea of what Foster Burger’s 24k burger has in store for you. Don’t forget to add fries to sop up all that gorgeous aïoli.

Once again, the Portland Mercury would like to thank our generous partners, world-class meat provider Nicky USA, Widmer Brothers Brewing, and Jim Beam!

Important reminder: THESE BURGERS WILL SELL OUT. Last year’s restaurants had one main issue with the event last year, and that was people getting angry and rude when they found out that they are part of a reality where restaurants that are getting slammed run out of food. We have better forecasting numbers this year, but please: go early, be kind, get a drink, and, most importantly, remember that a $5 burger is a privilege, not a right. Don’t ruin it for everyone! Please be kind and respectful, exercise the golden rule, and treat our restaurants the way you want to be treated (unless you’re a masochist).
