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.

Lot No. 3
Lot No. 3 is a fun gastropub in Bellevue with whiskey cocktails and classy bar snacks.

Wallyburger is a Wild West-themed burger spot in Wallingford that isn’t worth your time or money unless you like grease and congealed cheese.
Gracia is a cute, but pricier Mexican spot you should hit up during happy hour. The $4 tacos are very much worth the early dinner.
Despite the cheesy name, Uneeda Burger serves some of our favorite burgers in Fremont.
