Funky atmosphere with lots of concert posters lining the walls. Really enjoyed the grilled onions on my burger. Burgers are big so I ate it open faced. Fries must have been unremarkable because I can't remember them. Also yummy milkshakes.

A solid offering of burgers well prepared to your specifications. Good cocktails. Several different kinds of Poutine! Funky, with walls covered in vintage Portland concert posters. Kid friendly. Owners committed to Foster community, home to community meetings. Good to their staff, so I hear. The kind of place that made Portland weird, before the weird got up and moved away.... More

We've been to Foster Burger three times and I think the quality has gone down significantly over the past couple of years. We ordered four Foster Burgers, one Poutine, and one small order of regular fries. With two beers and two soft drinks the bill was an astonishing $71 for lunch for four. The hamburger meat was ordinary, slightly dry,... More

Pretty good burger with no bad Foster Sauce. Burgers come pretty empty of toppings, but for extra charge you can add what you'd like. A small order fries is enough for two people. Nice little neighborhood burger joint with decent happy hour.

Their burger selection is great. They have a "build-your-own" option with lots of ingredients as well as pre-designed burgers of beef and non-beef varieties (vegi burgers, lamb, turkey are other options). They also have some of the best poutine I have had. Service can be a tad slow when they are busy so don't be in a rush. These are... More

We've been there several times and the burgers are pretty good. (Nothing to write home about) My biggest gripe is that they serve the fries earlier than the burgers, so this time we asked if they could serve the fries at the same time as the burgers & they said 'sure'. But, once again, they brought out the fries first,... More

This place is a bar in a neighborhood that is not so appetizing, so just duck in and order off of their extensive menu of burgers. And don't forget to order fries! Then sit back, sip your beer, and enjoy all the posters on the walls. You'll wish you could come here every day when you tie into that burger... More

Creative burger selection. Really yummy poutine. We ran up a $350 tab because our group just kept trying different burgers and poutine.

Great burgers, solid tap list, poutine (black & white and FoPo) and a turkey burger (Johnny Apple Brie) like no other. You gotta see the menu! http://fosterburger.com/menus/food-menu.pdf This is our go-to place for sure, eh?
