Must have been a bad day? Saturdays not a good day here? – Stopped with the wife, we had been by this place many times, never stopped before.

Should have kept driving.

The burgers were pretty darn blagh and barely done to pink. No evidence of seasoning while cooking burger, bun was weird as well. Not much for dressing on burger, onion was bitter and tasted pertty old.

Fries were hot and not greasy, beverages were over priced for the small stature. Ice was plentiful though.

They thanked us when we departed...

I eat here every time I'm in town – My first time to Giant was about 4 years ago. I don't get to the Portland area much, mostly to visit clients. It was my client Patrick who first took me to Giant.

I was a bit apprehensive at first glance because the place doesn't look like much from the outside (or the inside for that matter).

But the burgers and the fries tell a different story. Delicious flavor, fun toppings and delightful service.

Patrick and I make it a point to grab a Giant Burger each year and I even took my family there on one trip to Portland.

Worst Burger I have ever eaten! – I had eaten at "Giant Buger's" before in other locations and enjoyed the burger, so thought I would give this one a try. Big Mistake! Their service was not the most friendly and certainly not willing to be flexable as to giving me what I wanted. "Extreme" strict rules for NO CHANGES what so ever was explained to me.... Thus No Grilled Onions! on my burger unless they put them on "Their Choice of Burger"! I have never had a 'good burger' that didn't have some "Juicy Wetness and FLAVOR"! This one was so dry I used up about a dozen packets of the Heinz Ketchup to help get it down. I am just to frugal to leave the food and go to "Fuddruckers" which is just down the street, but should have! I am sorry to have tried this one, but felt like it would be as good as the one in other areas,,, NOT! Go someplace else, I hate to say,, even go to Mc'D's.. and I thought I would never say that... Enjoy life and a better burger elsewhere!

Thanks, Lew Myer Medford, OR

Why put my name on this,,, if you can't say who you are when writing anyting good or bad, then don't say anything at all. Sincerely, and Thanks for your time.

Know before you go – Alright guys, let's be serious. This is not a four star restaraunt - it's a greasy burger joint, and it's gooood. Yes, The owner has stupid policies, like charging for extra ketchup or refusing to substitue...but it's his place to do what he will, and I love his burgers! The place is always packed for a reason. For the nay sayers - when did mcdonalds or burger king last have burgers stacked w/ blue cheese and fresh crispy bacon, or red peppers and a fried egg? It's fresh food and local ingredients with a burger for any taste. It's been here for 50 years, and there has to be a reason why! This is a cash only place so be prepared.

I will not go back as the owner is a fool! – Good food, but the owner is a fool. I will not go back. I was sitting waiting for my food when two men walked in and one asked for a cheese burger but he said he can not have sesame seeds on the bun. The owner said he had onion buns but those only come with specialty burgers. The man asked if he could have an onion bun on a cheese burger. The owner said no but you can get an onion bun if you buy a specialty burger like the guacamole burger. The guy said he does not like guacamole burger. The owner would not work with him. Talk about a dumb business man. He could have charged an extra .50 cents or something. Instead he let the two customers walk out disappointed. I was shocked, what a fool. I will not go back. I do not want to support stupid people. I run my own business and in this economy you better work with your customers or you will not have any. I am always weary of a business that only takes cash and has no record of transactions. Anyone know an IRS agent?

blah – I've worked in Lake Oswego for several years and driven by this place 1000 times. I finally decided to give it a shot and came away disappointed. The hamburger patty is small, and gets dwarfed by the bun and toppings. All of the component were bland, and furthermore the burger fell apart in my hands. The fries were passable but nothing special. The banana milkshake was also thoroughly mediocre. The best thing I can say is that at least the ingredients all seemed fresh, but who cares when there's no flavor? And also, there's no excuse for running a CASH ONLY business in this day and age. McDonald's is only a block away, and that's honestly a better experience.

The BEST service and TASTIEST burgers! – The service was spectacular! Especially that little Lacey! What a dream! She was so friendly and speedy and she smiled even though the place was packed to overflowing! The food was first rate. The teryaki burger was the best tasting food I have ever had the pleasure of devouring! It was cooked to perfection and the veggies were as fresh as the day they were harvested. And the fries were out of this world! Hot and crispy on the outside and tender and tasty on the inside. My friend had the mushroom burger and she thoguht she had died and gone to heaven, (we can only hope the food there is this good when we do die off!) Awesome employees, great food! What could be better? Nob Hill has NOTHING on this joint! And don't believe the bad reviews! Those people wouldn't know a good burger if it walked up and slapped 'em across the face!!!
