Best Burgers in Oregon

I liked that Best in Washington thread so I thought I'd start a thread for us.
In the Rogue Valley I'd nominate Jasper's on Hwy 99, fresh ground each morning, a variety of toppings. All good.
How about your finds? Anywhere in the state is fine by me.

  1. As far as Eugene goes, I think that Cornucopia has the best burgers. Great beef, good buns but not too much bread, ask for a side of thousand island too, I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure it's homemade. There're two locations, but the best one is the original on 17th and Lincoln.

      Cornucopia's pretty darn good.

      If you're in Springfield on a Monday or Thursday, try the Hole-in-the-Wall BBQ's (on Olympic near Mohawk) smoked burger with bacon and cheese. They're amazing, but only available on those two days. They also make the best fries in Lane county.

    2. Hillsboro has the Helvetia Tavern. Huge burgers. Its been around for years. And they have accommodations for children as well. We've had group lunches and even met there after work. Check out some of the reviews at:

      1. In Portland I think that Kenny & Zuke's makes a righteous burger. Huge patty topped with Swiss and pastrami.

        My brother in law swears that the best burger is at The Burger Shack in Hubbard. I keep meaning to try it.

          Gearhart Junction Cafe near Seaside has some great burgers, it's a fairly new place with a 50's ambiance. They have awesome milkshakes, onion rings and fries here, also. :)

        2. Farm to Fork in Dundee has a mean burger. The house sweet pickles and onions are great.

          1. I am from San Diego and just came back from Eugene. I had a burger at Cornucopia and was so impressed. It was delicious! One of the best burgers I've ever tasted, and I've eaten many burgers in my time. They claim to have the best burger on earth (and Mars) and there is at least a little truth in that!
