What to eat in Portland today: Union Burger

Jun 22 2020, 2:38 pm

When it comes to handheld foods, not many options are more synonymous with American tradition like the burger, and that’s for good reason. Proteins, toppings, and wickedly combined flavors all packed between buns is a wondrous amalgamation of ingenuity and hunger-satisfaction.

Portland is home to many amazing burger spots — much like any other category of food — and one that we’ve recently fallen head over heels for is Union Burger.

This bright yellow, community-focused, family-owned burger food cart isn’t shy when it comes to taking over the streets with their flavor-packed hamburgers.

What to order

Union Burger truly shines because they have three simple items on their burger menu, and the rest is up to you. Standard, all of their burgers (Hamburger, Cheeseburger, and Veggie burgers) come “Union Style” with all the best toppings. However, the spotlight grows even brighter if you follow them on social media and know just the right thing to ask for when you walk up to the window.

Take the Union Burger’s special Lemon Pepper Chicken Sando, mixing all of their incredible standard dressings, fried bacon, and one of the best crispy and sweet-meets-spicy fried chicken there is.

Currently, Union Burger is still operating pick-up and take-out service with reduced hours.
