Gresham, OR: Longburgers at Dea's In & Out

There are few ways to get me to review a burger joint in my fair city faster than when someone makes a "best-of" list and includes a place I haven't tried, as was the case when The Oregonian released its list of the top 10 classic burgers in the Portland area.

Portland, OR: Marginal Thumbs-Up for Lardo's Double Burger, Big Thumbs-Up for the Fries

One of Portland's best food carts, Lardo puts out some of the tastiest (and, it should be noted, saltiest) sandwiches in the city.

The answer depends on how high your standards have been set. More

Portland, OR: Get Some Burger with Your Cheese at Veritable Quandary

Veritable Quandary is best known for two things: mega-popular weekend brunches, and crowded weekday power lunches for downtown Portland's movers and shakers.

Grilled: Adam Lindsley, Seattle/Portland Correspondent

"Grilled" is our series of Q&As of burger-related people. It's been a while since we've done these regularly, but we're starting up again by interviewing our contributors so you can get to know the people behind our site. Today we're grilling Adam Lindsley, our Seattle and Portland burger correspondent since last November (but who will focus on Portland from now on since he recently moved there). He's impressively pulled triple-duty at Serious Eats; you can check out his pizza reviews at Slice and his soda taste tests at Serious Eats: Drinks. More
