There is Drinking with Divas or 50 cent jello shots or Bingo to choose from and there are rainbows everywhere. And Long Islands are alive and well. I came here twice so keep scrolling.
I had an itching for meat, so I ordered the Organic Free Range Burger with sweet potato fries. It was a burger I could sink my teeth into - the bun was squishy and the burger was juicy. My friend Jarret showed up as the burger arrived so we shared it, although I was really feeling this burger and could have possibly devoured the entire thing. The sweet potato fries were on the limp side, but I like them that way so no complaints!
I paid Hamburger Mary's another visit the following week to finally use my groupon (fine print sucks!) and sat at the bar by myself reading The China Study which I later ditched for an abandoned Willamette Week. It was one of those sunny, glorious days in Portland. I was having a me day. I ordered a glass of wine, the Blackbean Patty Burger (which is vegan and supposedly made by Mary herself, cough) with coleslaw which boasts Mary's secret recipe.
The burger was massive and super filling. The blackbean patty was on the mushy side but I'd rather have mushy then dry and crackly. The coleslaw wasn't anything special - just chunks of cabbage and nothing distinguishing about the sauce. I ended up dousing it with Tabasco which gave it more character, which is just about the only thing Hamburger Mary's is lacking character in.
