“I didn't think it was that great.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Went here on a Thursday night. Parking was fine. Order at the counter. Cheerful staff. Quick service. Menu is intriguing with lots of choices on the chalkboard. Burger was a weird shape and not particularly juicy. The blue cheese was an odd processed slice. Tasty enough, just not as spectacular as I was expecting of a place so highly rated by Zagat and TA. Still, worth a try if you're close by.

“Damn Good Burger...”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The thing that struck me almost immediately about their menu is that EVERYTHING includes bacon. Bacon: The candy of all meats. The burger was ridiculously good; quite possibly one of the finest this burger lover has ever had. Their ingredients are ridiculously fresh (I thought I'd heard some mooing coming from the back) and the service was superb. It's a burger joint that gets it right.

Go here for lunch. Just do it. Do it because you're hungry and you're smart and because you'll be that much better looking with a Killer Burger in your hands...

“Stacked”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

These guys stack it high and don't hold back on good ingredients. Creative, non-pretentious and they start with the "burger ball" on the grill. Fries are great too.
Usually have 5 beers on tap, pretty much all local stuff.

They even offer a "girlie" size on the burger.

Just simple and true to what they want to do, love that.

“Unique, Tasty Burgers”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

A day later I'm still feeling happy, body and mind, about my Epic Burger at Killer Burgers. While the selection is small, it's good and not boring. They have delicious burgers in combos that I have never seen anywhere before. DH enjoyed the peppy Jose Mendoza burger packed with green chilies and jack cheese. We arrived just before 5 pm to see the flat top full of sizzling bacon, a welcome sign. Topped it off with efficient service and a good brew. The atmosphere and price tag are Portland casual, the music is loud, the burgers: YES.

“Good, not killer except from the cholestrol angle”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Fun but loud place for big burgers. Not the tastiest or the best. Busy on a Saturday afternoon. I like the brevity of the menu. They have smaller burgers called "Girlie burgers" for two dollars less. On 17th in Sellwood south of Tacoma. A couple blocks south of Mikes, another burger place. Mikes has great Milkshakes.
