There’s only one burger you need on The Ave, and it’s Mr. Lu’s. Show up drunk at 4pm after a Huskies game, show up with a group of friends for lunch, show up by yourself looking for takeout. The cheeseburgers, loaded waffle fries, and milkshakes hit the spot, especially if you just did a big hike and the thought of eating a salad makes you want to dropkick a display of iceberg lettuce balls at the supermarket.
