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: Spirit of 77

THE BURGER: The House Burger


THE MOUTHWATERING DETAILS: Spirit of 77’s house burger is all of the best parts of a sportsball visit laid out on a bun, plus with better and cheaper beer than you’ll ever score at the Moda Center. You’ll snag their house burger (normally $10) for $5: an all-beef patty dripping with cheddar topped with pickles, onions, cabbage, mustard, catchup—and finally, the homerun hit—thick cut kettle chips tossed on for crunch. Relish it with a Heater Allen Pilsner on tap.

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).
