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.

If you're in the Greenwood area why haven't you been to 74th Ave Ale House? Sandwiches are great there.

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 was always enjoyed Rons in the Spokane Valley when I lived there. Herfys @ Lea Hill in Auburn is my place now.

You guys ever hit up the Burger Stop just off the I-5 north of Marysville? The one attached to the Shell station? I try to hit that sucka up every time I come down for a Hawks game or the outlet mall in Tulalip. Only problem though is I don't ever remember what exit it is, then I get distracted and forget to look for it. Then I zoom past it. Then I say "SHIT!" Then I realize there isn't a place to turn around for like 3 miles. Then I make this face: :( Then I buy an underwhelming $15 burger at the stadium...

That Burger Stop burger is a tasty little meat bomb for sure!

I know exactly what you're talking about. Had to make a pitstop there while working in the area. The burger was just okay tho.

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!

Yup I had the lamb burger at his Caesars pub, it was out of this world!

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.

http://www.yelp.com/biz/pilchuck-drive-in-snohomish

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.
