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!


Vine and Pallet Returns to the Yukon to Take Us on an Artistic Journey

Yukon - Vine and PalletTina McDaniels and her mobile art studio, Vine and Pallet, are back to lead us through another afternoon of artistic expression at the Yukon Tavern on Sunday, February 25th. Every time Tina McDaniel brings her studio to the Yukon we know we’ll be enjoying a relaxing three hours of art instruction as she entertains us with stories of inspiration. Tina has been painting all her life and has passed on her knowledge to students through formal and informal instruction, but no need to worry about experience or skill with Vine and Pallet! Just bring along your “can do” attitude and you’ll be taking home your very own masterpiece at the event’s conclusion.

Vine and Pallet will have all the supplies ready for you to create your own masterpiece, all you have to do is show up ready to paint. While you’re here, why not order up a great meal from the Yukon’s kitchen or a drink from our bar. Painting with Tina is always a fun social event, so join in on the party.

Yukon - Paint Your Heart Out Feb2018

Unlike other mobile art studios, Vine and Pallet strives to bring out the unique inner artist in you. Don’t expect a “paint by numbers” approach with this instructor. Tina is interested in helping you develop your own expressive style that you can develop over time, refining your vision and opening the channel to endless inspiration. Each painting will different with the artists’ own interpretation being put on display, rather than a paint by numbers, “one size fits all” tactic.


Come out to the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland on Saturday, February 25th at 3pm to paint with Tina McDaniel of Vine and Pallet!

Brrr! It’s Cold Out There!

Has anyone else gotten tired of this deep freeze we’re living in? I know I have, so I think I’m just going to ride out the rest of week inside my favorite neighborhood bar, Southeast Portland’s Yukon Tavern.

2016-06-27 03.57.51

I’ll order a beer and find a spot at the bar. Maybe there’ll be a game on. The Yukon’s got TVs placed around the bar so everyone can be front and center for NFL playoff games going on this month.


There’s always something happening at the Yukon. Open Mic Nights, Texas Hold ‘em, Geeks Who Drink, Vine and Pallet painting, and free pool on Sundays. Everyone can find something they love all week long.


According to rumors, the Yukon has the longest shuffleboard table in Portland and the challenge to drink a beer before your launched puck stops at the other end of the table is one I can’t resist!

Yukon - GWD.3

I always find a few friends at the Yukon Tavern. The neighborhood has changed over the last few years and the Yukon has changed right along with it, without losing the charm of a typical neighborhood bar. The new owners, Rainer and Jon, have updated the interior and the menu, with great bar food standards and a line of hot dogs that you won’t find anywhere else in Portland.
