The Goose, formerly The Blue Goose, is a New Mexican, Southwestern, and Tex-Mex restaurant in southeast Portland, Oregon, United States.


The Goose is a 52-seat New Mexican, Southwestern, and Tex-Mex restaurant at the intersection of Southeast 28th Avenue and Ankeny Street in Portland's Buckman neighborhood. The menu features adobada, carne asada, chile con queso with chorizo, a cheeseburger with green chiles, chile rellenos, enchiladas, and tacos, as well as in-house smoked meats and handmade tortillas. The drink menu features margaritas, Mexican beers, a wide selection of tequilas, wine, and other cocktails with agave. The restaurant's interior has turquoise-colored decor.


The building currently housing The Goose previously served as a tavern called The Blue Goose. In addition to drinks, the business served hard-boiled eggs and sold eggs by the dozen. The building housed the Tex-Mex restaurant Esparza's from 1990 to 2014. The current restaurant was opened by Kristine Craine on June 7, 2014. Some of Esparza's interior features, including the bar, were repurposed for The Blue Goose. Matthew Stauss served as the restaurant's first chef. The restaurant's name was later changed to simply The Goose.
