I live in NYC so "walking distance" could probably be up to a mile or so

I would say Killer Burger in the NE, but if you don't want to go that far, try Supernatural Burger at the SW 9th and Washington (Alder) Food cart pod.

Little Big is a fine fast-food-esq burger.
My favorite fancy-pants burger is at Henry's. Or if you want a queer Cabernet atmosphere Hamburger Mary's makes a damn fine burger.

Little Big Burger.

Or, if you want to go old-school, Byways Cafe. Man, that used to be the only good burger around downtown, IMHO. They used to be cash-only so go with cash. The interior is pretty great.

Little Big Burger. The fries are ambrosial. And yeah, the Byways Cafe would be okay too. But go to Little Big Burger.

Brunch Box. 5th and Stark cart pod.

I think the Little Big Burger is just okay, but their truffle oil fries (standard!) do make up for a lot...

Is little big burger a sit down place where i can also have beer or is it a take out/fast food set up?
posted by spicynuts at 4:08 PM on August 7, 2012

sit-down, with beer.

Awesome... Case closed!

Enjoy! If I weren't swamped at work, I'd totally meet you: you'll be three blocks away. I'm actually going there for lunch tomorrow, heh.

I am sitting next to the giant elephant sculpture in the park off burnside right now so i probably walked by you working hard

Ha, I can see that sculpture from my office! The trees are in the way, so I see only the feet, though.

Totally didn't mean that to sound creepy!

What? No Violetta? I know you have your burger already, but I needed to complete the record here.

I do not have my burger already.... It's only 6:15
posted by spicynuts at 6:14 PM on August 7, 2012

Violetta closed a few months back. They were good though.

Little Bird! (near SW 6th & W Burnside)
Gruner (SW 12th & Alder)

I hope I 'm not late with this important info.

Yeah, what the hell happened to Violetta? That is indeed a very good burger. I assume their food cart is still in operation?

Their fries were over-truffled, though. Oh what problems I have!

Seconding Prince_of_Cups: Little Bird or Gruner.
