    It's not just greasy fat-laden crap that could give a healthy man a heart attack. I'm not a fan of the fatty burgers with tons of bacon and sauce.

    Fat Smittys use quality local beef, it's fresh and lean, all fresh ingredients including the buns, and its about the best goddam thing in the universe after a 5-day hike through the Olympics. Many a hike through the Hoh or Queets, I find myself daydreaming about a smitty burger and it keeps me slogging through the mud. They even have normal sized burgers for those of us who try to avoid obesity.


    According to the internet, this is a Fat Smitty burger. No, no bacon or fat in that! Looks good though.

    Yeah that's their specialty burger. Like I said though, they've got a regular quarter pounder that is quite delicious, especially after a long grueling hike through the rain forest.

  • This thread is like a 'to do list'!

    Danny's Palm Bar in Coronado, CA is the best I have ever had.

    Two local-ish places that everyone should add to their to-do list is:

    Burger Express in Federal Way (near home for me - yea!)
    Crazy Eric's in Bremerton

  • If you guys want to try something next time you cook up your own...Cook the bacon, cook the onions in some of the bacon grease, melt and mix some peanut butter with the w/ onion & chopped bacon, spread on burger with some cheese like Havarti or swiss. Sounds weird, but is absolute goodness.

    And like CAN said, a fried egg is always a good thing.

  • Hard to beat a good burger down on the Columbia on a sunny day watching all the action on the water at McMenamins on the WA side.

    I'm a fan of some of the older places in Clark County. I used to go to Igloo and that place never let me down. I also used to go to Obrady's in Dollars Corner and get the Fat Clancy. That place is being demolished for a road and it's a damn shame. The old Dairy Queen on Main and 4th plain has been mentioned by some in here and it is by far the most unique and best DQ on the planet.

    I will confess though, that I eat at Burgerville once too often and I'm a little miffed they tore down the original one on Mill Plain. Still, the Burgerville ingredients are so top quality (and local) that even pregnant women eat it because it's safe and I'll often eat it when sick or hung over. Extremely tasty burgers for fast food. Best there is, IMO, and they got a "Best Better Burger" award from food network. There is no fast food buger joint that is better and the owner has done a lot for downtown renovation in Vancouver. One of the big investors in the Esther Short area where you'll always find people nowadays vs the 90s where it was just crackheads and transients.

    BTW, Walla Walla onion rings are back at BV. Better than the ones at The Onion in Spokane, which was my previous favorite Onion Ring, which I don't eat a lot of. Must buy in both cases none the less.

  • Fun thread to read. Thanks for all the posts.

    I somehow get the idea that 5 guys out west (and perhaps there is simply variation from location to location) isn't the same quality as some of the locations on the East Coast. Not sure how that could be, but perhaps there are different meat suppliers cause such variation? In any case, my family absolutely loves 5 guys. I wondered why some out west said they didn't particularly care for 5 guys... until I noticed when visiting a 5 guys location in another Florida city that the meat wasn't quite the same. The few locations we typically visit in Orlando are great.

    My oldest son is the burger connoisseur. He really enjoyed a Buffalo burger he had at a place out on Anna Maria Island. I think Buffalo meat may be a better overall choice. But, still, his favorite is 5 guys which, to me, says a lot about how good 5 guys really is. Too, we must not be in the minority with that since their burgers are continually voted the best in many locations (at least on the east coast.)

    From what I remember of In N Out... I think I liked it better than 5 guys. But, we don't have it here.

    Just to add something to the conversation in listing non-chain places, there is a place in Ft. Collins that serves up a tasty burger that had a topping we hadn't heard of before (though, I don't know I'd call it the best.): Cooper‘s Burger @ Coopersmith's Pub & Brewing (topped with a scoop of their "world famous" Artichoke Dip.) Give that a try next time you BBQ at home!

  • There was a place called Barnacle's in Des Moines that's in this spot that basically is a revolving door at attempts to run a local joint next to Jack in the Box and Red Robin, so it didn't last. So maybe I remember this burger as better than it was just because it was a one-time, short lived thing, but they had their Barnacle burger that had smoked salmon and cream cheese on it...and it changed my life.

    Smokey's in Burien on 1st and 128th might be my favorite old fashioned mom and pop type place to get a burger, ate there quite a bit when I was fixing up my grandfather's house when he moved into assisted living before he passed away. Cougar Country in Pullman is also amazing for a hungover day (everyday in Pullman). Also gotta give a shout out to Han's Burgers in Federal Way, but I haven't been there in years, so I'm not sure how much I trust my own endorsement at this point.

    I do love me some Dick's, too, probably my favorite place for the typical fast food order an absurd number of sandwiches type of binge place.

    I haven't really discovered anything special lately since I've moved into the Greenwood area. Burgermaster was disappointing, and I've mostly just found amazing turkey sandwiches and gyros since then. Somebody start those threads.

    I know that Barnacle place! We always comment on it as we drive by, wondering what the deal is. Looks like an interesting building/space. But have never seen it open.

    And I agree about Burgermaster, I've been going to the one in Kirkland since high school. Burgers are disappointing, but the shakes and fries are good.

    I've actually been meaning to. I live on 95th, so I'm not usually up that far, but whenever I pass by it on the bus I think about how I've got to go there. I'll be going soon.

    It's closed now. It used to be Boston Pizza, which was there for years, but since they closed, it seems nobody has been able to find success in that spot. I think a new business has already moved in, but I might be wrong.

  • Burgermaster gets the whole concept of the burger wrong. They make a sick grilled cheese and the fries and shakes are good. But if I'm eating in my car, which is the whole experience, then i don't want a messy burger.

  • I just ate at Gordon Ramsay's Burgr (spelled that way) in the Planet Hollywood casino in Vegas last week. It was amazing, and I'd bet Radish's life it's better than any burger listed in this thread thus far. Ate there with three friends, and we were all blown away. It was amazing.

  • I'm gunna brag. I grill mine over mesquite. Patty made of hand picked prime sirloin. I mix a 50/50 blend of chopped smoked brisket (Texas style BBQ) and the sirloin. Dress it however you like. I do Blue cheese crumbles and avocado. I've eaten many even gourmet burgers, but this is My Fav. My favorite fast food burger is FIVE GUYS. Started by Mark Mosley (of Redskins fame) and 4 of his buds.

    Yup that place is old school. It was on Sepulveda I believe. Were they in PNW too? Not all that.

    Planet Hollywood, didn't that used to be the Aladin? That's where my wife and I always stayed, when her grandma lived down there. Was a cool place, we liked it, never understood why they had issues and had to sell out or change.

    But I can see ol' Ramsay making a damn good burger, want to try that!

  • Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill and Gordon Ramsay Steak are both on my list for the next Vegas trip.

    @Twisted, IDK if that was the Aladdin or not, Planet Hollywood has been there since I've been going to Vegas, (6-7 years now) and I really like it. However, the MGM Grand is the best place on the strip for anyone who likes to play roulette.

    Gordon Ramsay Steak was phenomenal when I tried it out earlier this year. Make sure to try the Sticky Toffee Pudding, it's probably the best dessert I've ever had. I'm definitely wanting to try Burgr on my next trip, I've heard some pretty good things from a few friends.

  • The Onion here in Spokane offers a wonderful line of burgers.

    But one place I've never had one from and would love to is In and Out. I wish they were closer because I've heard nothing but good things about them.

    Of course they aren't a gourmet place like many talked about here.

    We have tried Fat Burgers and Five Guys all because of members here mentioning them. We were underwhelmed with both. They have lots of wonderful condiments but burger wise I wasn't to impressed.

    Of course my wife eats burgers and steaks for the condiments where I eat them for the taste of the sandwich or steak. lol We make good burgers here at home but she has to have pickles, onions, lettuce, miracle whip or Mayo, and anything else handy.

    Me I like plain old burgers with perhaps a bit of onion and some mustard.

    The Onion sucks.

    Yes for a fast food burger In & Out is great. You won't be disappointed.

  • Okay, I find myself having to make the drive from Sammamish to Mount Vernon every weekend to support my recently acquired paintball addiction.

    What's the best burger joint between Everett and Mount Vernon? Relying on some of you northern natives to help me out here.

    Had a good one at the Pilchuck Drive In but I'd like something that's not quite so far off of I-5.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  • Best burger, man that's like asking which kid is your favorite. At the top of my list would be "the ranch drive in" in downtown Bothell. Get their early and expect to wait 20 minutes but they are really burgers, great fries and I hear the shakes are even better.

    For fast burgers, it's hard to beat the western bacon cheese burger from Carl's Junior. It's not as good as what I remembered from my HS days, but it's still tasty. McD's burgers suck, the whopper is a solid last minute choice.
    My experience with 5 guys in Bothell was good except that it took 20 minutes to receive my to go order and the small order of fry's was huge. An hour after eating this grease laden meal it felt like I ate a brick.

    Dick's burgers are better than Everett Herfies ( but Herfies had the cars and like mentioned, street racing on the Boeing freeway afterwards) and Joey in Bellevue has solid burgers and fantastic scenery. Just don't make the mistake of taking your wife to Joey. It's like a classy Hooters.

    And when he says "classy" he means hot waitresses and decent food.

  • Shake Shack in NYC is easily one of the best I have ever had.

    And if you are in Spokane be sure to check out Waddell's. Awesome burgers with lots of different topping choices. If you prefer fast food burgers Thrifty Scotsman is a winner.

  • Mooyah is the best I've had so far. They're always made to order and they taste fantastic. Very comparable to five guys, but we don't have those here in Billings. I see Mooyahs are starting to show up in WA, so maybe somebody else here has tried them. They're cheap too...I never pay more than $8 for a double bacon cheeseburger that has everything on it including fried onion strings.
