The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they find that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Equip your hands with very real edibles with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a 1/2 lb. cheeseburger and a soda (up to a $10.25 value) at Skyline Restaurant, located on NW Skyline Blvd.
Acclaimed by Food Network Magazine in 2009 as the best burger in the state of Oregon, the patty-bun mash-up at Skyline Restaurant entrances taste buds with its seductive meat dance. Ravenous patrons will nosh on a hearty Skyline cheeseburger jam-packed with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. Customers can wash down their handheld flavor device with a choice of fountain potation from among Coke, Diet Coke, root beer, Sprite, lemonade, Mr. Pibb, or Mr. Pibb's French cousin, Monsieur Pibbe. Drink refills are bottomless so parched tongues can leave their water-filled knapsacks at home.
Three signs at Skyline Restaurant's pioneer boulevard location echo its 1935 origins—a neon "Open" sign glowing beneath the awning, a Coca-Cola sign flanking the parking lot, and a "Burgers and Shakes" marker crowning the roof. The Broadway location's dining space similarly hearkens back to Skyline's beginnings with its checkerboard tiles and booths and its insistence on only accepting money from the 1930s. Though all these design elements reflect Skyline's reputation as a classic American burger joint, the menu demonstrates that its chefs never stopped experimenting. The burger selection extends to half-pound steak burgers with topping combinations such as guacamole, pepper jack, salsa, and sour cream. Such innovation captured Food Network Magazine's choice for Oregon's Best Burger in 2009. The chefs' experimentation continues throughout the menu, from milk shakes blended with pie to a deep-fried hot dog dubbed The Resolution Destroyer.
