There are many places that claim they have the best dang burger ever. And when I tell you that they’re all wrong, you probably still won’t believe me - especially when I tell you that the best burger place is in Springfield, Oregon. But you better believe it! This hole in the wall little restaurant is definitely a hidden gem, and one thing you must do during your four years (or more) at University of Oregon, is to venture on down to Snack Shack and try one of their burgers. You seriously won’t regret it. 

Getting to Snack Shack is pretty straightforward. You go down Franklin Boulevard, under the bridge and then make a right at the U-Haul. A couple minutes down that block and you’ll run right into it. From the outside you would never guess what the building is. Situated on the side of a pretty empty road, Snack Shack’s yellow building doesn’t really scream restaurant…until you get inside. The inside’s retro, classic decor makes it look and feel like a restaurant straight out of the movies, or a diner straight from a sitcom. 

Snack Shack has over fifteen different burgers that you can try!! Not only do they sell an abundance of burgers, you can also find a variety of sandwiches, breakfast dishes and different barbecue items. If you don’t believe me, just listen to some of the types of burgers you can get. Not to mention the different sizes you can make each individual burger.

Best Burgers

Avocado Bacon Cheese Burger- With bacon, avocado, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. Bacon and avocado, need I say more?

Snack Shack Burger - With ham, bacon, swiss, american cheese, fried egg, lettuce, onion, tomato and mayo. sounds like a mouth full but it will certainly make your mouth full.

Western Bacon Burger- With bacon, onion rings, american cheese and barbecue sauce. Uhhhh yummmmm.

Chili Burger w/ Fries- Two small patties on an open-faced bun, smothered in cili and topped with cheddar cheese and french onion. 

Not only is the food delicious, but the staff is so friendly and the service is fast. Don’t forget to order one of their amazing milkshakes. Thick and delicious and perfect for dipping fries in, or just for sipping on. If these burgers aren’t already making your mouth water, then you honestly have something wrong with you. Or you are a vegetarian. But, if you're like me and you're already planning out on going to the gym for an extra hour just so you can stuff one of these bomb burgers into your mouth, then good. Next time you're in the mood for a burger, skip Five Guys, skip Little Big Burger and head down to Springfield and try Snack Shack.
