I often wondered when I would see Lewiston on the map of one of those travel food shows. Effie Burgers has deserved a place on one of those shows for ever.
Yes, you read that right – Effie’s is the home of the 1 pound burger.
Not only is this burger huge, it’s amazingly good. The hamburger is fresh and hand formed. The buns are made specially in a local bakery. And there are veggies. You get pickles, relish, tomato, lettuce, and onions on your burger.
The best part – a whole 1 pound burger costs just $10.75. No one eats one alone. My husband and I split one and a small order of tator tots for less than $15. We ate breakfast at McDonald’s earlier that day and it cost us $12 and we were nowhere near as full as we were leaving Effie Burgers.
Despite their attention to the burger, Effies is a hole in the wall bar like place. It’s not fancy and their menu is very limited. But then you go for the burgers.
