Serving Up a Special Treat on “Sausage Saturday” at the Yukon Tavern

The Yukon Tavern has become Southeast Portland’s go-to bar for delicious meals for many reasons. Our customers enjoy the easy going feeling they find in our bar and the many fun events that are held every week, but one of the reasons they tell us they always return to the Yukon is the yummy pub grub they find on our menu.

Yukon - Hot Dog

A favorite menu item is our 100% beef Hebrew National hot dog.  It’s true! All day on Saturday our kitchen turns out delicious all-beef hot dogs to our customers for only $1!

Yukon - Chili Dog

But don’t let the price fool you—even though we discounted it, this hand-held dish still retains all the flavor you’d expect from high-quality meat. And, if a spicier version is what you long for, will give it a spicy edge for just one dollar more by adding a thick layer of chili.

Yukon - Sausage Saturday

Our Sausage Saturdays are made for those who crave the taste of a great hot dog so much they want it hot, fresh and easy to order at their nearby neighborhood bar. Our hot dog special runs every Saturday, year-round, so even on rainy Portland days you can still enjoy the great taste of a Hebrew National all beef hot dog. They’re so good you won’t stop at one, and at just $1 per hot dog you can order as many as you it takes to satisfy your craving and still have enough money left over for a few of our great tasting beers.


Visit the Yukon Tavern on Sausage Saturday to enjoy the great taste of an Hebrew National 100% all-beef hot dog! Just look for the bright neon sign that hangs over our tavern on Milwaukee Avenue in Southeast Portland. We’ve got delicious food and frothy, cold beer, and don’t forget to order up a side of our famous tots, too!


Going on a Wild Turkey Hunt for a Happy (Hour) Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here and for many people that means stress and annoying relatives. If this is what you’ll be dealing with this Thanksgiving we’d like to invite you to the Yukon Tavern, where you’ll find friends, food, and an All Day Happy Hour–we even have a turkey for you!

Whiskey lovers rejoice! Your holiday has arrived and we are serving up Wild Turkey just for you. It’s an American tradition—Wild Turkey Bourbon contains notes of sweet vanilla, pear, and hints of spice and finishes with a flavor that is full and rich, whether enjoyed straight or with a mixer. Wild Turkey was originally crafted by Kentucky Bourbon Hall-of-Famer Eddie Russell and continues to be aged in American White Oak barrels with deepest, No. 4 “alligator” char.

Order up a shot of Wild Turkey, then fill your table with our version of the perfect Thanksgiving dinner. Dive right into an entrée from our kitchen and enjoy a juicy burger or a Hebrew National 100% beef hot dog smothered with piping hot chili. Get a side of Yukon Gold fries or tater tots to go with it and you’ve got a meal that’s better than a dried out old bird.

Yukon - Watching the Game copy

Who needs a La-z-boy? Hang out at our bar after the meal to relax in front of the TV to watch a football game with friends, a beer and a bowl of popcorn to munch on. We’ll be playing the day’s best games.

Going Topless at the Yukon Tavern!

The height of summer is upon us and that means a lot of hot days in the coming weeks. We may all be thinking about cooling off on a beach somewhere, but at the Yukon Tavern you can go topless right here in Southeast Portland! 


Every good burger begins with high-quality beef, and the chefs at the Yukon don’t skimp on taste when they prepare a Topless Double Double. They use only the juiciest, most delicious meat they can find and grill it to perfection, with crispy edges on the outside and a perfectly cooked burger on the inside. They throw a slice of cheddar cheese over each patty and let it melt down the sides, sealing in the flavor and adding a creamy layer of great taste. 


Next, they pile it high with two slices of tomato and some onion and skewer it through to a bed a crunchy lettuce leaves and place it on a plate next to a dill pickle spear and a pile of fries, tater tots, or kettle chips. It’s a meal good enough for any grill master!


Whether you are living a carb free life or just prefer to keep the taste of high-quality beef front and center on your plate, the Yukon’s Topless Double Double is a great way to let loose and enjoy a summer meal.

Join us at the Yukon Tavern’s street-side seating on Milwaukee Avenue for a Topless Double Double and a pint of your favorite summer beer!

Celebrate Spring with a Yukon Tavern Blue Cheese Burger

Spring has sprung! The birds are singing and we’re seeing glimpses of blue sky overhead. After the kind of winter we’ve had, I think that calls for a celebration at the Yukon Tavern with one of our delicious Blue Cheese Burgers!


As the days get warmer and the skies get clearer, we all begin to count down the days until we can spend every hour outside in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We’ll sit outside at one of our street side tables and enjoy a great beer and a burger while we enjoy the company of our Sellwood-West Moreland friends.


The burger that springs to mind when we have these happy thoughts is our Blue Cheese Burger. Its layers of savory beef patty, fresh lettuce, tomato, onion, and a heaping smear of blue cheese dressing inside a toasted bun is perfect to get you in the mood for the many evenings of good times to come. Pair that with some tater tots, onion rings, or our famous Yukon Waffle Fries and a great craft beer and you’ll have a perfect meal all inside one basket.

Yukon - Outdoor Seating

The never-ending winter of 2017 is finally over and it’s time to celebrate with us at Southeast Portland’s favorite neighborhood bar! Stop by this evening for a Blue Cheese Burger and some friendly conversation and get your mind set for the warm spring nights to come at the Yukon Tavern.

Hot Dogs and the World Series at the Yukon Tavern

Baseball, hot dogs, apple cider and the Yukon Tavern!

The World Series begins on October 25th and the Yukon’s chefs have recreated the great taste of a ballpark frank with five takes on the classic using Hebrew National Hot Dogs. So join us at the bar for a dog, a beer and America’s favorite pastime.

The Classic Hot Dogs
The beauty of a good hot dog begins with the meat, and Hebrew National is know for being made from premium cuts of 100% Kosher beef. Topped your way, with ketchup and mustard and a side of chips, this hot dog is an American classic for all baseball lovers.

Chili Dogs
Spice up your dog with a helping of chili to give your taste buds an extra special treat. Throw in some onion and a bit of cheese and you’ll be able to go into the seventh inning stretch with vigor and verve.

Corn Dogs
Our corn dogs are dipped in corn bread batter, deep fried to a golden brown and served with stoneground mustard. It’s a sweet, spicy and savory experience served up inside a crunchy “bun.”

German Kraut Dogs
Go back to the source of great sausage dogs with our German Kraut Dog. The sweet, salty and sour taste is a treat that offers something new in a traditional frank. Add a side of our Yukon Waffle Fries and you’ve got an American version of a German classic.

Chicago Dogs 
The grand champion of all our hot dog baskets is our famous Chicago Dog. Tomato, onions and a few sport peppers is the homerun recipe for this dog. And, this year you just may be able to celebrate a long awaited Cubs win with a celebratory Chicago Dog!

Plan to watch the World Series with us at the Yukon Tavern, where you can have that great stadium experience with a dog in one hand and a brewsky in the other inside Southeast Portland’s favorite neighborhood bar!

Building the Perfect Burger

Greeley Burger-001.jpg

Ah—the sight, the smell, the taste of a perfectly constructed burger! It’s a layer-upon-layer of flavor whose memory lingers on long after that last bite.

The Yukon Tavern’s classic cheeseburger represents our version of the perfect burger, with the best ingredients cooked to perfection, then stacked into a two-fisted tower that is sure to satisfy even the most discriminating burger lovers.

Greeley Burger (1)-001.jpg
When you bite into our cheeseburger your experience begins with the fresh taste of a brioche bun. Sink your teeth down into its silky inside until you reach the crunchy, rich taste of its lightly toasted interior.

The next layer of flavor is delivered through a smear of sauce that brings a sweet and spicy kick to the mix.

Next, you’re taste buds will encounter the cool, fresh layers of lettuce tomato and onion, combined with a warm, savory, juicy patty before giving way to the smooth and creamy taste of melted cheddar cheese laying over the patty and melting down its edges.

Served in a basket with your choice of sides (chips are included, or you can substitute salad, fries, or tots), it is an example of classic American pub grub. And, just like the Yukon Tavern itself, this menu item’s long history serves as a reminder that perfection comes from years of practice and, in this case, a passion for the art of creating the perfect burger.
