After dropping off Christmas presents in NE Portland, my husband and I decided to grab a bite to eat. My favorite food is the hamburger sandwich. (I worked at a Dairy Queen when I was in high school, the one on 136th and Division. An elderly man would come in one night a week and order a “hambuger sandwich.” I’ve liked that phrase ever since.) Anyway, there is certainly no shortage of hamburgers in Portland. Widmer’s was my first choice, since we were in the neighborhood and their burgers are so good. But, I decided to take my husband to a well-known Portland resturant. We went to Stanich’s on NE Fremont. Stanich’s has been around for the last 50 years. If you haven’t been, go just for the amazing number of pennants hanging on the walls. The menu consists entirely of hamburgers and a couple grilled sandwiches. The hamburgers at Stanich’s are practically a Portland institution, and for good reason. If you like the onions grilled and the burger juicy, Stanich’s is your place.
