(burgerville.com) – Vancouver, Washington

How I heard of this place: When I was in High School, a carload of friends and I were on our way to Portland for the Regional Basketball Finals. Chrissy, Kathy and Angel recommended we make a stop at the awesome burger joint. Nearly every trip I make to the Portland area now consists of at least one stop at Burgerville (though it had been nearly a decade since I had last sampled the fare).

Type of cuisine: Burgers and fries. According to the Burgerville website they are also Fresh. Local. Sustainable.

Ambiance: Fast food restaurant with order counter and plenty of seating throughout the establishment. Booth seating as well as chair/table seating is available, as well as combinations of the two. Fluorescent lights abound!

What I ordered: I ordered my usual: the pepper bacon cheeseburger ($5), made with country natural beef, pepper bacon, Tillamook cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce, onions, pickles and ketchup on a sesame seed bun. One of my four dining companions ordered the half pound colossal cheeseburger ($5), made with a country natural beef patty, American cheese, the special Burgerville spread, ketchup, pickles, tomato and lettuce on a sesame seed bun. He also selected a strawberry milkshake with which to wash it down! Our third dining companion ordered a meal which included fries and a drink. Her sandwich of choice: the turkey club sandwich made with sliced turkey, bacon, Swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise on a wheat Kaiser bun.

What I loved: I love the Tillamook cheddar cheese on my burger the best! The fries were crispy and soft, lightly salted.

Why I loved it: The burgers were slightly smaller than I remember them to be, which was perfect for the 10:30 p.m. dinner snack to satiate our argumentative stomachs.

Cost: Average ($5 per burger, no sides included)
