Walla Walla Onion Rings -- YOW!

bards4 Aug 24, 2007 02:17 PM

Darn you, Burgerville. Here I am working to maintain (or actually locate) my girlish figure, and you bring out these late summer walla walla onion rings. So sad for those folks who don't live up here. You're missin' out.

Are there other places around that have anything similar? Wait, maybe I don't want to know....

    According to the Burgerville Website: 810 calories, 48 grams of non-saturated fat, 1260 mg of sodium....not TOOOO bad. :) I love onion rings, but Centralia (closest location to Seattle) is a bit too far to drive. Enjoy!

      Yeah, but that's 810 calories in EACH onion ring...

        HA HA HA HA. Talk about "nutritious" . . . !

      I made the mistake recently of ordering the large version. Five rings rather than three.

      I had to waste one, because if I had eaten it I would have then lost all five.

      Boy are they good. And huge.

        Nishino (SEA) has walla walla onion rings...but no burgers

        (Put a little Japanese red pepper (shochimi tougarashi) on them to give them more of a kick, or maybe even ask for some spicy mayo)

          I believe Kidd Valley uses Walla Walla's this time of year for their burgers and onion rings. Also, I had some delicious rings recently at Red Mill Burgers ('though I'm not as thrilled with their hamburgers, which seem to win the local "Best Burger" award every year).

            any updates on Onion Rings (walla or not?).. my husband proclaimed he wanted Onion Rings tomorrow, and i have no idea where in seattle to go!

            we've had Jolly Roger's, By's, XXX and LC's Kitchen (which i loved, but evidently Onion Straws do not meet my spouse's RING requirement.)

            any suggestions? lunch or dinner.

              In the quest for good onion rings in Seattle...does anyone make good THIN onion rings? The thick cut monsters at places like Red Mill just don't do it for me. When they're that thick I usually end up eating a ring of slimy onion followed by a mass of shattered batter. I find myself folding them in half for dipping (as if the fat in onion rings wasn't enough, I need to add tartar sauce!), and a good onion ring shouldn't fold. I wish there was a Burgerville farther north than Centralia, but perhaps it's just as well. (Blackberry milkshake: 850 calories. Last time down I got a smoothie instead...ONLY 450!)

                The new burger place in Ballard, Hamburger Harry's, has thin onion rings. The burger wasn't obscenely 'OMG BEST BURGER EVAR', but good enough to make me want to go back and try a different burger.

                  I haven't been to Burgerville yet, but the onion rings at Maxwell's (upscale dining) in Tacoma are outstanding. (As is their French Onion soup.)
