The decor is "Larry the Cable Guy" with ball caps from all over hanging from the ceiling. The ambiance is warm and welcoming with friendly servers. The burgers are unbelievable! My husband always gets the double with cheese, which is HUGE,... More

Good atmosphere and burgers. Usually busy. Be aware that it is cash only, there is an ATM on site. In nice rural setting, relaxing, no lottery distractions.

If you do not mind driving a short distance out in the country from Hillsboro, Oregon or close by towns, Helvetia Tavern is a place to go. It serves excellent food and plenty of it, great atmosphere and fast service. We have been there several times and always enjoyed our meal and the service it provides.

This is a fun place to eat at. Great atmosphere, inside and outside dinning with really outstanding service. They have the best homemade burgers and really great salads. Really cool Tavern inside and the dinning outside in the summer is very relaxing. A must try at least once. A little off the main path but well worth the drive.
