Where to Find Food and Drinks in the West Hills

Burgers, Bento, Pho, and more between downtown and Beaverton

View as Map
Sasquatch Brewing Co./Official

The West Hills area of Portland is situated roughly in between Beaverton and downtown Portland. Though mostly residential, and rarely considered a food “hotspot” in Portland, recent years have seen places like Burger Stevens to go on to become city-wide hits. Large restaurant groups like the Sesame Collective have begun to open restaurants in the area as well, suggesting that the area is an up-and-coming destination.

Because the West Hills area is in both Multnomah and Washington county, it’s worth checking the county restrictions for the specific restaurant before visiting to check what level of dining is available. This guide focuses primarily on take out and curbside pickup, but some locations are offering outdoor dining. As usual, this list is organized geographically, not ranking.

A number of Portland restaurants have resumed outdoor dine-in service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Oregon Health Authority’s COVID update page. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

What started as a series of pizza pop-ups at farmers markets and other arenas across town ended up as a cozy brick and mortar pizzeria in Multnomah Village. In addition to the thin, crispy pizzas dotted with black marks from the wood-fired oven (which are available for takeout, Thursday through Saturday), Tastebud now offers some pretty legitimate bagels. The Montreal-style bagels are boiled and then baked in the wood fired oven, and are available on a monthly basis.
