Louis Burger Lust

Louis Burger Lust - located on 17th and Vinton Street in the historical commercial district of Omaha, Nebraska. Louis Burger Lust offers up one of Omaha's best signature "phatty" burgers. Competitively priced and well proportioned, Louis menu contains an array of burger classics! We tried two of their burgers. I ordered the Swiss Cheeseburger piled high with lettuce, onion, pickles, and tomato. Zippy got the Protein Enhanced Egg n' Bacon cheeseburger! Both burgers were quite tasty! All served up in a small diner with plenty of local flavor! Next up...Stellas!

Direct blog from Laura Friesell and Jon Zimmerman in Omaha.
Nice Laura and Zippy! My first blog from Omaha. I want to come back for more food and good company and of course when you get to Oregon the first burger is on me! Mike

Cheeseburger at 7,500 feet on Mt. Bachelor, Oregon

Mt. Bachelor offers a unique summer dining experience that they call Sunset Dinners. My folks were visiting for the 4th of July weekend so we decided to give it a try. It is definatley not a burger joint and the menu is good but also on the expensive side. Of course they had a burger on the menu and I couldn't resist. I was pleasantly surprised! It was a hand patted Angus beef burger with a home made bun and it was quite good. It was $12.95 for the burger and fries which was OK considering the burger comes with an amzaing view! I don't think I will make the drive to the Mt. Bachelor parking lot and then take the Pine Martin lift to 7,500 feet just for this burger but the whole experience is what it is about and overall I was satisfied. They have a nice happy hour with amazing views of the Central Cascades and the chairlift ride is incredibly scenic. Check it out if you are ever in the Bend area in the summer.

New Top 5 List

#1 - The Tavern Burger, Pilot Butte Drive-In, Bend, OR
#2 - The Clogger, Jody's Tavern, Redmond, OR
#3 - The Special (aka the World's Greatest Hamburger), Stanich's, Portland, OR
#4 - Aron's Cardiac Burger, 3 Creeks Brewery, Sisters, OR
#5 - The Grand Daddy, Dandy's, Bend, OR
#6 - The Lumberjack, Winston Drive-IN, Winston, OR

I have gone back and forth on the Tavern Burger in the past several years...but it is back on top! Very good hamburger! Compare it to the Aron's Cardiac at 3 Creeks Brewery, the Tavern is bigger and better and cheaper than the Cardiac. The Cardiac is VERY good and much less greasy than the Tavern, but the Tavern is #1 for a reason!

A Good Burger from Scotland!

This is the first international post to the Oregon Hamburger Review! Congrats to Ali Rose for a submission from his homeland. He wins a free burger (the current #1 on my top 5, or his choice), once he returns to Oregon to claim his prize! Follow his example folks, please submit your burger posts!

Hey Mike (AceBurger),

As promised, a good Scottish Burger. The Isobar in Leith in Edinburgh, serves an Angus Burger which is amazing! 60z. prime Aberdeen Angus beef on a morning roll, lettuce, tomato, and onions, with a tomato salsa on the side. Also worth getting the add-ons of some Scottish mature cheddar and some bacon (real bacon, not that streaky burnt stuff you Americans eat). Served with hand cut chips, yes CHIPS. A welcome break from the haggis eating at this time of year, it's Rabbie Burns birthday!

Cheers, Ali

Hi Mike (aka AceBurger),
Attached is the Billy Goat Burger from the Billy Goats Tavern in Shasta City. It's not Oregon but it's close and they have good beer and garlic fries too. Massive burger with lots of additions.

And I have a recommedation - if you ever roll a van on the outskirts of Baker city, OR. There is only one place for a burger..... Barley Browns Brewpub has a great "brewpub burger" cooked to taste...... oh and good beer.
