Red Mill is not where to go to get a half-pound bison burger with gruyere on an artisan brioche bun with pomme frites. It’s where to go to get a diner-style burger, a paper sack full of the best onion rings in Seattle, and a serious milkshake like s’mores or truffle mint. You’re not coming here for the ambience - you’re coming here to spread out at a picnic table while blissfully unaware of how many calories you’re consuming. This competes on the Lil’ Woody’s level for best casual burger in Seattle.

Despite the cheesy name, Uneeda Burger serves some of our favorite burgers in Fremont.
