Best Burgers in Seattle

Who has the best burger in Seattle? I don't mind spending $10-plus for something extraordinary. Red Mill is fine, but is it really the best? I have a soft spot for the Dock St burger at Bad Alberts. Greasy is good, served with a cold beer is even better. Please - share your favorites!

  1. LFP, I think Two Bells Tavern holds it's own and also meets your beer goals.

    1. To be honest, I'm still searching. I thought Red Mill was the best looking burger I've had, but the flavor was kind of bland to me. It didn't have the beefy flavor that I was looking for. I wonder if they snuck in a Boca Burber by accident.

        I tried Zesto's in Ballard, 65st and 15th (?).
        They have a good burger at a decent price.

        1. Two Bells has my favorite burger in town (even though I'm not always wild about the crusty bread it's served on). Plus, beer! This place makes me happy about the smoking ban.

          That said, I do think Red Mill is the best West Coast-style (thin patty in balance with well-chosen toppings) burger in town. I find myself there more often than any other burger spot. Honorable mention in the west-coast category: Dick's deluxe burger. Love the chopped pickles.

            You bring up a good point. In my mind, "cooked to order" is a key factor in the perfect burger.
