Burgerville: Camas: "Semi-Fast Food with Local Flavor" Camas Restaurant Tip by glabah

Camas Restaurants: 7 reviews and 19 photos

Bergerville started in Vancouver, Washington, and has since spread to a number of different locations in Oregon and Washington. According to a number of interviews with the family that owns the chain over the last few decades, they have no interest in expanding outside what they consider their region, and their region is considered to be a scattering of places in Oregon and Washington.

The Centralia restaurant is as far north as the chain goes, as of this writing.

For some years Burgerville had the slogan "where you go when you know" and I would say that slogan fits them perfectly. Most fast food restaurants serve cheaper food - say in the $1 to $2 range per item. The next step up is a full diner with items in the $10 range. Burgerville hits the $3 to $7 range.

The Camas restaurant features a few photos on the walls of early Camas - particularly a few logging photos.

Also according to the web site, it is one of the growing number in the chain that feature free WiFi service.

The view available here is mostly of the street, and while it is close to downtown and Highway 14 there isn't a huge amount of high speed traffic right outside the door, which makes the outdoor eating area a little more pleasant that it is in some of the restaurants close to busy roads.

Currently, on Tuesdays during Camas Farmer's Markets, 10% of the sales of the Camas Burgerville go to support the market.

Note that aside of the official Burgerville web site, the Camas Burgerville also has a facebook page at

Favorite Dish: The best item to search for in any Burgerville is whatever happens to be in season. For example, if stawberries are in season, you can get fresh strawberry milkshakes rather than shakes made from flavoring syrup. If Walla Walla onions are in season, you can get some wonderful onion rings. The sweet potato fries are typically amazing.

All of these items only appear for a season when they are in season, and available fresh to the restaurant.
