Caiolla's-Portland's best burger?

joss2 May 30, 2007 12:37 PM

Not usual for me to order a burger in a place like Caiolla's, but last night when I ordered one at the bar, a person eating on one side of me said he'd eaten one for lunch, another party chimed in saying that's ALL he ever orders. The burger -$12.95- was memorable and the fried potato "puffs"! wow!
Which leads to two questions. Might this be the best burger in Portland?
And what other hidden gems am I missing in Portland restaurants? Great items that aren't typical of the rest of the menu?

    I've since heard that Back Bay Grill and 555 both have high end burgers, and for less!

      I wonder if the burger at 555 is $19.95?
