Simple menu. Reasonable prices. Speedy service. Clean shop. Tasty burgers. What's not to like?

Not the most perfect burger you've had. Though it's certainly bordering on a great burger. Staff aren't chatty, nor are they unfriendly. Just focused on the job at hand. The location is small, quiet and relaxing. It's not perfect. What it is, is exactly what...you need. Nothing less. Great spot. Will undoubtedly return without a specific plan on a random, breezy Portland afternoon.More

My daughter, who is a classic Portland foodie, turned me on too Little Big Burger! These burgers are like you bar-be-qued them in your backyard at your 4th of July picnic, only with better buns and sauce!!! The staff at the store are so friendly;...if you are in Portland, you've got to try this place!More

I love fast food. Don't judge me, but I just do. Whenever we travel to a new state, I like to see if they have any chains that I can't get at home in NYC. Cali has In-n'-Out, Washington has Dick's (meh), and then I...stumbled upon Little Big Burger while researching for 'fast food' places in Portland. We ordered for delivery via Grub Hub one late Saturday night to our hotel. (FYI - Uber Eats has a lot of extra delivery/service fees so Grub Hub is the better option but if you can, order for pick-up instead, or directly from their site - which I didn't find out that you can until the time of this review). Here is everything we ordered: The Ringer (1/4lb of cascade natural beef, topped with bacon, double Tillamook cheddar, shredded lettuce, caramelized onion & supersauce - served on our baked brioche bun) - you really can't go wrong with bacon and/or caramelized onions. The beef was cooked perfectly. Cheeseburger (1/4lb of cascade natural beef, Tillamook cheese - we chose pepperjack, shredded lettuce, red onion, pickles, camden's catsup, served on our baked brioche bun) - a classic Chickenburger (chipotle seasoned chicken thigh custom ground by SP Provisions, Tillamook Cheddar, leaf lettuce, pickle, red onion, and our tangy chick-sauce) - I didn't love this but it's also because I failed to read and thought it would be a fried chicken sandwich. But this is not a bad healthier alternative if you don't want a beef burger Truffle fries - need I say more? You get a HUGE portion for $4. We were struggling to finish it but then again we did also order three burgers to share between two people. I wouldn't say this is the best burger or fries I've ever had - so why the five stars? It's hard to order burger and fries for delivery and still have it be good. Usually, something gets compromised - typically the juice from the patty makes the bun soggy, or the steam from the fries make those soggy too. But everything tasted great when it arrived (maybe 20-30 minutes after we ordered?) But more importantly, the fries were still crispy (also not oily). How...??? I'm not sure what kind of voodoo they did but I ain't mad at it. Somebody bring Little Big Burger to NYC please!More

Reasonably priced high quality burger. It's not big but has nice condiments and a good bun. Clean store with a small seating area.

We have been stopping by this location for years and it always delivers a great burger, fast and super tasty. We love their truffle fries - they may haunt you. With a wide selection of local beers and hard cider in cans you just can't...beat this triple combo. Right near Powell's City Books in the Pearl District, service is friendly and your order is delivered super fast for a cooked to order meal.More

Took our team to Little Big Burger. Staff is not overly friendly - think almost rude. Burgers are good and sized right for lunch. Skip the fries. Place needs to be cleaned better. Convenient and not over priced.

Unique is a good description of Portland, and also of Little Big Burger. Indie music, fixed stools, and a wide open kitchen area are first noticed. I was particularly impressed with employees fastidious attention. To hand washing — as it should be. As employees moved...from one area to another a visit to the hand washing station was routine. Food was good. Burgers are thick, but small, just smaller than hockey puck wth same thickness. Fries are definitely old school fresh cut potatoes. It’s not health food, but a nice place to eat just for the health of it.More

Staff did not wash hands prior to food handling, staff were eating french fries while cooking, one staff wearing wrist brace while cooking, no staff wore disposable gloves, staff handled coin then touched our food, staff collected catsup bottles then touched our food, we asked...for a refund, received one but were told to never come back. No problem, we have told many at our convention of 600 attendees at the Doubletree by Hilton to avoid this restaurant!More

Great burger and fries. Burgers were a little small but the taste was big. Fries were great and the serving size made up for the small burger.

So I’ve only seen this chain here in Portland. It’s basically a burger joint with a simple menu. The burger size is on the smaller side it’s larger then a slider like at White Castle but nowhere near as large as a Big Mac. The...meat patty is chunky. If you just want a quick bite it’s a nice stop.More

We are burger enthusiasts visiting from Seattle for a couple days. Day 1 we tried Killer Burger both the regular and the Peanut Butter Pickle Burger at the Trail Blazers Game. Very good. 4 stars. Next day we tried Little Big Burger. Even better. We...loved the small form of the burger. Meat was good, purist basic burger not getting to FooFoo. Excellent value. Where can you get a top quality 1/2 pound burger for under $8? BEST FRIES OF ANY BURGER CHAIN I'VE EVER HAD. Identical to McDonalds but crispier and add Truffle Oil. I hate the bigger fries and hate super greasy fries. These are not. Amazing. Fry sauce was great too. In my opinion the negative reviews on this establishment expose (flaws in) Human Psychology. If you consider, especially in a town like Portland, most people going for a burger rather than an Organic Quinoa Salad, are prepared to pig out and have thrown diet caution to the wind. As the name implies, these burgers are smaller, BUT NOT IN THE AMOUNT OF MEAT. They are simply smaller diameter and taller. You basically just get a lot less bun - and we love that! So when you go here and you get your burger, if you were planning to pig out, you're initial reaction is to be, THIS THING IS PUNY! It's actually not. It's the same amount of meat as most hamburgers (1/4 pound) you're just not going to fill up on bread my friend! We ordered double patties and for a top quality 1/2 pound burger, under $8 is a deal! Yes, the double size is just as much meat as you get for a $15 burger at a nice restaurant and more than you get at Killer Burger (they are 1/3 pound) and the same amount of meat as Red Robin's full size burgers. But the burger seems so small you react?!?! Get over your love of bread! Or order an extra order of fries if you need to satisfy your carb craving, or just order two singles instead of one double (still under $9.) Anyone who really "gets" burgers will get over the smaller taller format and appreciate these for what they are worth, darn good burgers and a very reasonable price with fantastic, non-greasy truffle fries!More

Portion control is alive and well with little big burger. The only problem is that they do not adhere to portion/price control. Burgers are smaller than average slider and cost is way over the top. Won’t be back

We had chicken burgers, a cheeseburger and a veggie burger with fries. Veggie burgers was described as “best I’ve had 10 times over”. Fries were great and the orders were pretty big. Four of us split 2 orders of fries and it was plenty. Really...appreciated smaller buns. Fast good meal!More
