“Fried Onion Burgers Since 1946” is the motto here. Johnnie’s has served up delicious food for almost 80 years. The local spot also does pancakes, omelettes, and full breakfasts to kick off the day. For lunch and dinner they have a range of options but specialize in straightforward hamburgers. The available toppings are all the classics, along with a few wildcards like jalapeños.

Opened in 1967, Big Burger is a third-generation family-owned burger spot in the town of Molalla, about 30 miles south of Portland. They keep it simple and classic with burgers served with lettuce, pickles, onions, tomatoes and homemade sauce. Besides that, customers can choose to stack on the patties up to three high and add bacon and cheese. Big Burger also sells seafood baskets, chicken strips, and milkshakes.

In 1932, in the midst of the Great Depression, Polish immigrant Stanley F. Kryla opened this restaurant, aiming to sell cheap and delicious burgers — and his successors have kept this dream alive for nearly 90 years. The restaurant continues to offer the original Stanley Burger for less than $3, and has a variety of other variations that add on tomatoes and mushrooms, among other things.

Ike’s isn’t shy when it comes to portions, and makes sure everyone gets their money’s worth. The spot sells a variety of food including fried seafood plates and sandwiches as well as burgers and dogs. For the most part the restaurant doesn’t diverge too much from timeless classics but they do have a pimiento cheese burger that adds a local favorite food to an already delicious patty.
