Skyline Restaurant

We have been searching for a place that was new to us to try. I was city searching when i came across a list of the best burger spots in Portland. One that has been dubbed the best burger in Portland more than once can be found at the Skyline Restaurant. Its tucked up and away at a small intersection in the hills around downtown Portland. Adventurous D had heard it was good so we called up Ickypoopy and made it happen.
The place is quaint and small. Authentic diner with drive in service. The place was packed. The wait staff was patient. I can never make up my mind.I had the 3 cheese burger and Sweet had the bar b q bacon cheese burger. ickypoopy had a Skyline cheese burger.  They are big and juice, worth every penny.
The shakes are beyond delicious...beyond delicious. Sweet D had the white chocolate covered cherries shake (i am not allowed to have that) . I had a sip and it was like the bright, soothing, calming, comforting light that leads to heaven ...or something.

here is a feature review from :

In Short – Skyline's nostalgic '50s-style decor of Formica counters and Naugahyde booths and bustling, no-nonsense service are true to its "burger and shake" drive-in heritage. Families and young couples come for its signature dish, the Skyline, a lean burger towering with lettuce, tomatoes and onions. The fries and onion rings are crisp, but the real draw is the malted milkshakes in hot fudge and mint chip. More fountain specials include the sexy butterscotch sundae.

could not finish whole burger. To much food.
cash only. be prepared.
