Willamette Burger Company
WBC is now closed
Fresh ground beef patties, buns baked daily, warm friendly service at a familiar location. Do I need to say anymore? OK, I will. Willamette Burger Co., on Broadway St. makes some outstanding high quality burgers for a reasonable price. On this visit, I ordered the Border Burger and fries for $9. This sandwich was topped with pico de gallo and Monterrey jack cheese from a local cheese maker. Biting through that juicy patty reminded me of what a hamburger is supposed to taste like. The hand cut twice fried French fries accompanied this entree beautifully. I've heard this place described as gourmet burgers, but I'm not sure if that's how I would describe it. It's not like they're bringing it out on a silver platter and you need to dress up to go in. But it's way better then the fast food chains. I've always liked that location too, because you are close to the kitchen and you always feel like you are getting good value for your money. The dining room is simple, small and cozy. It'll remind you of the days when it was Willamette Noodle Co. which were good memories. The menu has a list of burgers but you can custom order one however you like. I couldn't decide whether I wanted the home made tater tots or the fries so I ordered both. The fries were crunchy and hot, so were the tots. It was way more food then I could eat. So, I wrapped the tots in foil and ate them on the side of a sandwich a couple of days later. This place is one of several major improvements in dining options in Salem over the last couple of years. It's the perfect option for my family because it's a place we can all agree on going. Options beyond burgers include several choices of chicken sandwiches and a chicken Caesar salad. Next time I'm planning on saving some room for an ice cream sandwich for dessert. We'll be back soon.
