Burgerville - Portland, OR

Burgerville is an Oregon based chain that on paper is committed to using fresh, local, and sustainable produced food.  Would that commitment play out in the final product?

Tillamook Cheeseburger

You order at the counter, you're given a number, and you take it to a table.  About 5 minutes later, the burger arrived. This being the case, I expected the burger to steaming hot.  Not so. At best the patty was a medium temperature.  The product output was not commensurate with the wait time.  The dried out look told me the patty puck was microwaved, not cooked after the order was put in.  The beef wasn't particularly beefy nor was it the standout component of this assembly.  The patty was acceptably moist but just barely.  The lettuce was fresh and crispy.The bun had a slight plastic bagged dried out taste and texture.  The ketchup and mayonnaise ratio was perfect for a perfect tang.

  • Bun:  Franz sesame bun
  • Toppings: Lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, ketchup, Pleasant Valley Farm pickles
  • Cheese: Tillamook Creamery Tillamook cheese
  • Meat:  Country Natural beef
  • Price:  including Lamb Weston french fries and drink
  • Rating: 7.0. I was expecting better.
The fries were hot, fresh, and crispy.  I wish the same could be said about the burger, the hot and fresh part that is.
