We've come a long way since the hamburger norm was "two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." From basic to gourmet here are a few joints that do the burger proud.
A Seattle institution. Their philosophy is to do a few things and to do them well. Hamburgers, cheeseburgers, shakes and fries...that's about it - and they do them well. That's all you need to know about Dick's.
On the weekend, this joint stays open until 4:00 am at which time they lock up, go home and rest, then start serving it all up again three hours later at 7:00 am. They also have a great Happy Hour window during the week from 3:00 - 7:00 pm.
Don't let the name fool you. Yes, they do serve up pizza by the slice but they also crank out some tasty burgers, pulled pork, fries and onion rings.
They have a big ol' pile of bacon on the grill just waiting to top your burger. Get in (the usually long) line to order and make sure you have cash on hand as they don't take credit.
This place is a classic. An old school restaurant that knows how to serve up a hearty plate at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Stop by anytime of the day and night and you'll be able to spot the regulars who have been coming to this joint year after year. And once your order hits the table you'll understand why.
This place serves up burgers and fries with a smile. But you'll be the one smiling after you chomp into these mouthwatering patties of beef.
Just because you don't have on a suit and tie doesn't mean you shouldn't head into this steak house for lunch. Sure, there will be plenty of business types having lunch on the company dime but don't let that scare you away. Lunch eases into Happy Hour where you can score a 1/2 lb. Prime Beef Bacon Cheeseburger for 10 bucks.
A welcomed addition to the Seattle Center food scene. Same tasty bacon jam, same tasty burgers.
This is a classic burger joint. Step on up and order the burger of your choice from a menu that tempts you with so many juicy choices. Go 'all in' and get the chili fries to complete the meal.
I need a burger, you need a burger, we all need a burger. And at Uneeda Burger they have just about every type of grass fed beef (and veg) patties with toppings that are guaranteed to suit just about anyone's need.
If I could have had the tater tot nachos in my lunchbox when I was a kid I would have been one happy camper. Tater tots aside, this place is known for its adventurous and delicious burgers. Stop by at Happy Hour, soak up the sun on their patio and enjoy your burgers and fries with a cold one for a buck or two less.
You can order safe and get the Tokyo Classic that's topped with tonkatsu sauce. Or you can throw caution to the wind and order the Mt. Fuji -- a heaping mega burger that places patties of beef, pork and chicken between two buns. Oh yeah, did I mention that it was also topped with bacon and a fried egg?
Serving up some serious classics...burgers, beer and fries (with a "little" bacon thrown into the mix) it's easy to see why this corner burger bar has become a hot spot. For the more adventurous check out the ground ostrich burger, or the other unexpected choices that they feature on a monthly basis. And grab the Classic 8oz Burger Combo for 8 bucks during Happy Hour.
They say they don't want to be known for their burgers, but when the Wagyu burger comes topped with bacon, white cheddar and roasted mushrooms it's hard not to sit up and take notice. But then again, anything from the Marrow menu could be considered as note worthy.
