Caiolla's-Portland's best burger?

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?

  1. I love the burgers at Becky's and also Silly's.

    1. 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?
