Amazing burgers and fries!

We came with children ages 5-13. Lunch hour during the week so it was crowded and no where to sit. That was slightly stressful. Staff friendly. Small menu done well. No shakes just root beer floats. Fries are good. Burgers smaller than typical burger and all cooked medium well unless you request otherwise. Right next to the iconic Powell's books.... More

There's not much that really sets this place apart from other similar burger joints. It's cheap and fast, but don't come here expecting full size burgers. You'll be satisfied if you have a smaller appetite, basically. The truffle fries are pretty nice, though. If you come by and you like the taste of truffles, you should probably get the fries.

Second time here. Burgers are great and a decent beer selection. Would recommend to anyone who is the area to go shopping.

Truffle fries and $4.00 burgers gave me enough reason to try Little Burger, but I don't think I will return. I'm the type of foodie that likes a fry that has more potato than oil. With a burger I prefer a tasty, seasoned and juicy assortment of mouthwatering explosions that leave me wanting to order another. This did not meet... More

They have high chairs, but otherwise we couldn't figure out why they call this place in top 10 for family friendly in Portland. Food was ok, not fantastic. Loud inside and not relaxing.

Small burgers but really fill you up. The truffle fries were the best. Was surprised how filled up we got with small burgers but it is a good amount of meat and quality.

The service was fast, friendly, and personable. After a fun day at OMSI, Little Big Burger was the perfect ending! Food never tasted so good. This is a must! Also - the price is completely amazing...just about the same price as fast food, but way better and real food. However, skip the bathroom - not very sanitary and the sink... More

My daughter and I stopped here on one of our visits to Portland one day for lunch and it was just because my daughter loves burgers and we drove by and saw it from the road. This is one of the those burger joints that has developed a cult following and I can see why. They do one thing and... More
