Congress Bar and Grill

617 Congress St.




One of the more satisfying options in Portland, this restaurant simply takes a normal-sized patty of decent-quality meat, puts a nice char on the outside, and covers it with cheese. Griddled bun, LTO, and hand-cut fries—every time this burger leaves me wanting nothing at all, not even dessert or another beer. Maybe another beer.
