IT’S BACK. The only time of year that matters—the Portland Mercury’s Burger Week—is finally here!

From Monday August 13-Saturday August 18, at 49 of Portland’s most beloved restaurants, bars, and brew houses, you’ll find fantastic, one-of-a-kind burgers that exist ONLY for the Mercury’s Burger Week! That’d be great on its own, but it gets better: Each of those fantastic, one-of-a-kind burgers is only $5!

Jason Isbell has established himself as one of the most respected songwriters of his generation. Don’t miss Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, March 4th at Keller Auditorium!

The Portland Mercury’s Burger Week is brought to you by the Mercury (natch), but we couldn’t do it without our burger-lovin’ pals at New Seasons Market, Jim Beam, Widmer Brothers Brewing, and Oregon’s Finest!

Keep reading to discover all of this year’s wondrous Burger Week burgers... BUT WAIT! READ THIS FIRST!

Stay cool!

The Mercury’s scientific research has revealed that Burger Week is the most popular event in the world! That means there are LINES, and lines mean you’ve got to be patient. It’ll be worth it, promise—and if a particularly popular burger sells out, you can always come back the next day, or track down one of the other 49 Burger Week burgers!

Tip, cheapskate!

Burger Week doesn’t just happen—it’s the result of months of hard work from chefs, wait staff, bartenders, and more who work crazy long hours to make sure the week is as fun (and delicious) as it can be! Show ’em some love!

Drink (and eat) up.

Yes, burgers are what make Burger Week... Burger Week. But you’ll be doing it wrong if you don’t take advantage of the other stuff that Burger Week’s choice locations have to offer, from beer to sides to salads!

Be social.

Check out portandburgerweek.com, #portlandburgerweek, and the Mercury’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages for daily updates and reviews of 2018’s best Burger Week offerings!
