Frugal Finds, West Coast Roadtrip – Portland, OR (Part 3)

Next on the Oregon Trail series (Click Oregon Part 1, Oregon Part 2 – if you missed those entries) we drove up and to the Pittock Mansion, a French Renaissance-style chateau and home of the The Oregonian newspaper owner Henry Pittock.

Located in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon, this mansion has 46 rooms estate and is situated on 46 acres. It’s now owned by the city’s Bureau of Parks and Recreation and open for touring. You can check out the interior of the home for a $10 general admission fee, but we decided to just enjoy the picturesque skyline.

My goodness, just look at this stunning view! The photos don’t even do it justice!

Made famous by their Peanut Butter Pickle Bacon burger we bit the bullet and ordered one – mind you we ate at two restaurants 2 hours ago, so we were not prepared for another full blown meal lol

With a 1/3 lb of 100% Angus Beef, Bacon, house sauce, mayo grilled onions, sliced pickles this burger was massive and heavy. Top it off with some bottomless fries, and this baby could easily fed me for two meals.

I’m actually not a huge fan of peanut butter, but this burger just might make me convert. The ratio of meat and the other ingredients was perfect and the flavor just explodes in your mouth. Mmmm…

They also offer a Crazy Hour (aka Happy Hour) Monday- Friday from 2:00- 5:00pm where they offer a discount on their popular items.

  1. Classic Burger or PBPB with Bacon with bottomless fries $6.95 (reg $9.65)
  2. Micro Brews $3.50 (reg $5.50)
  3. All Soft Drinks $1.00 (reg $2.50)
