Yukon Tavern Specials

Our Atmosphere

“A True American-They call it a dive bar?? It’s far from being a dive, it’s great, we had a great time with the friendly locals, and the staff are awesome! They really know how to mix the drinks. We had bar food, which was cooked quickly and very well, and we visited there a lot while on holiday. It is the place to be—with their shuffleboard table, poker nights and various channels on their TV’s they cater for everyone it’s worth a visit.”

-Michelle S., TripAdvisor

Our Food

“Yukon does it right. Booze is ludicrously cheap here and it is a first rate dive bar. What can you say to a plate of better-than-your-expectations biscuits and gravy for $6.00? Load me up! That’s what you say!”

-Shiherostar, Barfly

Our Staff

“Laid back-I thought the Yukon was rad. The bartender was friendly to me and you can’t complain about cheap PBR drafts. Couple the cheap prices with a nice red velvet interior and a good crowd.” -Raincnty, Barfly

Super Bowl LIII at the Yukon Tavern

Finally, the long wait is over! Super Bowl LIII is coming to television screens all over the world and you can count on the Yukon Tavern to be your Southeast Portland neighborhood Super Bowl LIII headquarters.

Join our football loving fans and feel like you are at the 50-yard line at our bar. You won’t have to miss out on one minute of action between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots when they take the field in Atlanta at 3:30pm Pacific Time.

Yukon - NFL Breakfast

The predictions for the game are mixed going in, making for an exciting game. With the Patriot’s previous Super Bowl experience and their powerful offense led by (love ‘em, or hate ‘em) quarterback Tom Brady, and the Ram’s powerful defense that has brought them back from the brink this season, it’s anyone’s game this year.

Yukon Tavern Specials

Sports viewing at our bar is better than being at the game because you’ll stay nice and warm and our bartenders are ready to keep your glass full of your favorite beverage! Bring your friends and sidle up to the bar to cheer on your favorite team while you sip your favorite beer. After the game you can stick around to either celebrate your team’s win, or drown your sorrows in one last pint.

Super Bowl Sunday also gives you another chance to dig into the delicious dishes from our NFL Breakfast menu that our chefs have been serving every weekend all season long. With standards like bacon and eggs, to a champion’s meal of bacon, eggs, potatoes, and biscuits and sausage gravy, we’ve got a plate that will fill you up for a day of gridiron action!IMG_2712

And, of course, we’ll have all your favorite beers on tap throughout the day, so no more runs to the store to get more for you and your guests! We’re happy to keep your glass full and your team spirit high as you follow the highs and lows of the game.

Healthy Eating, Yukon Tavern Style

It’s a new year, with all the familiar resolutions to eat healthier than you did when you indulged over the holiday season. The Yukon Tavern is here to help with delicious pub grub that will give you the good food you want at a tavern but won’t throw you off your goals.

Getting Your Vegetables

Start your meal with a basket of Fried Green Beans and dipping sauce. They will give you that satisfying crunch typical of a great appetizer without the carbs associated with fries, tater tots, or onion rings. With a cupful of sauce (our fried green beans comes with ranch, but you can go for something spicier, like BBQ or Siracha), you’ll get the pleasing experience of traditional finger food, without the calories.

Protein Packed Entrees

Burgers don’t have to be a cheat meal. Get your fix with a Yukon Topless Double! We load it up just as you would expect a burger to be, with lettuce, tomato, and onion stacked on top of two juicy patties and a creamy slice of melted cheese for a low carb treat. There’s a pickle on the side and we can leave off the chips if you want to go all the way in meeting your goal. This is a great option for those following a keto or gluten-free diet.

 Vegetarians Rejoice!

We may be known as a traditional neighborhood bar with a menu full of delicious fried treats, but that doesn’t mean we can’t up our game to include a vegetarian choice on our menu. We’ve created a Veggie Burger that will provide the protein punch expect in a burger with the pleasing taste that you expect from the Yukon. We pile on the vegetables and cheese and put it between a velvety bun. It’s a veggie miracle!

 

Healthy Drinks? We’ve Got You Covered!

Pair your meal with Abliss Lemon Gingerdrink for a dose of the much talked about CBD natural supplement. It’s a cool and refreshing drink that provides the health benefits of marijuana, without the mind affecting chemicals of THC. The best part is that it hightens the taste of the healthy meal you’re enjoying!

Start the year off on the right foot with a healthy, satisfying, and delicious meal at Southeast Portland’s Yukon Tavern!

Along with the sports we broadcast on our four TVs, we also have the traditional tavern-style games. Keno, video poker, a collection of traditional board games, and pool are all available anytime you stop by, and don’t forget to take a turn at Portland’s longest tabletop shuffleboard. Rumor has it that ours is the longest in the city and the challenge is to drink a beer before the puck gets to the opposite side. Think you can do it?

Of course, we also offer a full menu of great burgers, hotdogs, sandwiches, and entrees and a full bar with experienced bartenders who can recommend just the right drink to go along with your meal. With two Happy Hours daily, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy everything on the menu.

After you’ve finished off your last taco head to safety south of the border with one of two light and refreshing great beer pairings. You can check our online leaderboard for updates on what’s currently on tap, or…

Yukon Tavern Specials

Go for a bottle of Pacifico. A Mexican beer created in the style of European brewers, it is a refreshing, light beer that is highly buoyant and features a dense, white head. The brewery was established in the port town of Mazatlán by three Germans in 1900. It combines the great Mexican taste with German brewing experience for $3 a bottle.

Yukon Tavern Specials

Brewed in Baja Mexico for over 60 years, Tecate is a well-balanced bright golden lager with a malt crisp flavor and low to medium bitterness that finishes clean. It’s a great accompaniment if you’re looking for a light beer to go with your tacos and we serve up cold ones in tall cans for $3.

Yukon Tavern Specials

Get your story straight because the Yukon Tavern on Milwaukee Avenue in Southeast Milwaukee Avenue will help you “swim with the fishes” every week. Join the Yukon family for fish tacos, our Friday Daily Special for only $4, and you’ll find that you’ve become the “wiseguy” of your family!
