The hamburgers suck and the owner kept farting. Oh . . . way to expensive. The milk shake was ok, but the fartin' sort of ruined the
atmosphere of a place!!!

I'm not paying $15 for a bunch of farts!!!

I have lived in the area for 44 years and remember coming here after football practice for shakes. Very good shakes still but heavy hitter on the wallet. But it is a burger joint so....Had lunch here today. Deluxe meal special. 7 bucks

I used to go here a lot in high school and it's a great teenagers' burger shack. More expensive than mcdonalds but way better. The cook (owner?) is a little in your face but it's a burger shack on Barbar, not a fancy resturant. He even likes to changle people to eat things like 6 saltines in a minute and bets $20 on whether you can or can't.

Great place for lunch or a quick, good meal.

Pros: awesome food, patio seating

Cons: limited seating

If you are looking for health food look elsewhere. This place is amazing though... Whatever you get make sure you order it with bacon. Nice friendly people and cool small town feel. I have no idea what the other two guys are complaining about because this place friggin rocks the house! thanks guys and I'll see you soon!

So I called in a basic cheeseburger and small shake. Get there and dude says, "14.99." I ask him how much is the shake and he says agitated, "6 bux." I ask him for a receipt and dude tells me hes out of paper. I tell him I dont care who you are or where I am I've never had a 15 dolla burg/shake from a roadside joint. He looks at me like "Im the jerk." Words follow and I walk, needless to say he gave me a horrible experience, engaged me pathetically and showed me no value so strike three- You're out not me!

I think he was disgusted when I looked around the corner because I thought the blazer game was on his tv and when it was NHL hockey I had a disgusted look on my face. He noticed and issues followed.

Will never go back and ive been going my whole life.

NO MONEY FOR YOU!

I love this place - old fashioned burgers, shakes, and even tater tots. The only thing you need to plan for is that they only accept cash and the location is small.

This is an old fashion burger joint. Think back to when you were a kid...greasy burgers, fries and awesome milkshakes! It's a tiny little restaurant.

I live in Salem and come to Portland for Humdinger's Delicious Food. Their Burgers, Fries, Shakes, are just sooooo Good. The owner is very nice, he served me, Fiance, and my children are food. The portion is is very generous. My sons are 15 and 16 years old. They could not even finish their meal. If you want excellent food that is just like the old days, Then this is the perfect place to go with friends and family. I highly recommend Humdinger to all. Juanita in Salem, OR!

been eating at this little dive for about 13 years.
tonight was the last time i'll ever set foot in there.
i was given the absolute worst service from
whom i can only assume was the owner.
i had never ordered a bbq pork sandwich from them before
and assumed it would be like every other bbq pork sandwich
served anywhere in the world.
pork, bbq sauce, bun.
humdinger serves theirs with what they claim to be coleslaw.
not on the side which would have been fine
but, rather smothered all over the bottom half of the sandwich.
making the bun wet, soggy, and cold.
i personally would have picked off anything i didn't like but,
i'm allergic to mayonnaise.
also i felt a 7 dollar, hot, loose meat sandwich,
shouldn't be cold, soggy, and dripping water and mayo from the coleslaw.
so, i took it back.
i would have been elated to have another sandwich without the coleslaw
but, i was not even offered an apology.
the heavyset man behind the counter grumbled about it
being that way for the past 2 years, snatched the bag from my hand and threw my money back at me.
the sandwich was actually only 6.95, when i tried to give back the
nickel, i again was accosted with his poor attitude.
great way to do business!
i will never return, nor will my family, my friends, my co-workers, nor anyone who asks my opinion of the place.

Pros: none

Cons: too many to list

If only they used ground chuck, real oreos, and quality peanut butter. Go to Knobb Hill for your burgers, and DQ for a Blizzard - much better!

Pros: Ambiance, decent frys

Cons: Low quality beef. Stail or generic "oreos," worst peanut butter I ever tasted.

I go to school at Wilson High School, located only a few minutes away. I recently discovered this hamburgery and have fallen in love with it. To begin, the milkshakes are perfect. If you don't see a flavor you like, ask them to mix you up one, a unique one i've tried is a peanut butter banana marshmallow shake which was pretty much amazing. Moving on to the burgers at this small, easily overlooked restaurant I am once again constantly surprised with how amazing the food is. Whether you feel like a small burger (it's actually a menu item) or a Hunger Halter (it really works), there is something for every size of appetite. I even believe that the garden burgers are pretty good, though they are one of the only vegetarian options available. Whether it's a massive milkshake or a 1/2 lb burger, the 'Dinger', as my friends and I have dubbed it, never dissapoints. The thing that really sets the Dinger apart from any other hamburger restuarant i've ever been to is the atmosphere. There are few restuarants in Portland that challenge you to drink a 1 pound milkshake in a minute This and many other hilarious entertainment possibilities make eating in at the Dinger a must.

While the food here is absolutely fantastic and the environment is always interesting, the Dinger has a few drawbacks. As a high school student without a job, I am forced to live on a fixed budget and many of the menu items are very expensive for me. While this does not deter me from experiencing the magic that is the Dinger as often as I can, there are times when I feel as though there may be better ways to spend my money. These times occur exclusively between the time I pay for my food and the time I start eating it; as soon as I have a burger in my hand I know that it is worth every penny of the money I paid. Humdinger is also located in a small building and so there is not a lot of seating room on the inside. On nice days (or not nice ones) however, there is always ample seating outside. 2 thumbs up!!

Pros: Amazing

Cons: None, except there isn't much indooor seating and it's a little expensive

Humdinger never seems to let down no matter what you order. The hamburgers are simply amazing, made with 100% real beef and topped with just about anything you can imagine going onto a burger. The classic double is 1/2lb of beef with bacon and the usual toppings and is truely fantastic. Humdinger also serves up delicious diner style sandwiches including a classic reuben, philly cheese steak, french dip and BLT, to name a few. The onion rings are delicious and the chili cheese fries not to be missed. I've been told the fish-n-chips are supurb. Furthermore, you can't get a better milkshake anywhere else on earth... there is enough variety that you could go a month without ever ordering the same thing. If your in the mood for a great shake or an amazing burger skip McMenamins, Burgerville or anywhere else and make a dash for Humdinger... you won't be disapointed.

Pros: Great Food & Milkshakes

Cons: Cash Only, Little Indoor Seating

.

It's just a small place located on Sandy Blvd. don't blink or you might miss the best hamburger you have ever experienced. I ordered their HUGE burger with ham, egg, bacon, although I forgot the name of it, it was the best burger I have ever had the pleasure of meeting & then eating. I also ordered a large milkshake for like $3.00, but what I got was a freak of nature; it was 44 ouces of shake!!! And boy was it good too, but don't take my word for it... go check it out for yourself.

Cons: VERY Small!!!, CASH Only!!!, ONE ONE in Town!!!

I went here last week, on a recommendation. I found it very small, say seating for about 10 or 12.
I had their chili burger, and was disappointed, with chili. I've had better. My neighbors cheeseburger, looked great, though. Their menu has a 1 pounder, for $8.00, and the list of milkshakes, is the longest, I think I have ever seen. Next time, I'll try one of their large cheeseburgers, and a shake, and I hope soon. I must have driven past this place, a hundred times, and never noticed it.
It's buy the corner of SW 19th & Barbur Blvd, accross from a Safeway. If this place was only a little larger...

Pros: Good food, good parking, great service

This is the best burger in Portland. Great shakes (particularly pumpkin) and crinkle-cut fries with a huge menu. Great value with a traditional burger-joint feel. Give it a try, but seating is limited and it is crowded during peak hours--which won't suprise anyone who's tried the food.

Great hamburgers. Lots of selection. Daily specials. Multiple flavors of milkshakes. All overshadowed by the fantastic onion rings (available daily until the batter is gone).

Ridiculously good burgers, some too big to eat. The shakes are beyond belief, and you can even get chunky peanut butter in them. Not much room inside, but plenty of outdoor seating.

I think Humdinger Hamburgers is the best place in town to get an old-fashioned, juicy burger. The service is fast and friendly, and the menu is extensive. Check out all of their milkshake flavors! But here's the reason I go back: the tastiest burgers!
