Great Hamburgers on the Eastside (SEA)

Ideas on this? Somewhere near 520/148th would be great, but I can drive.

    Testy Chef on 169 overlooking Cedar River. Better burgers than Red Mill.

        Isn't everybody stretching the word "great"?

          520 bar and grill is a great place!

          I am a fan of Burgermaster - classic!

              We think Kidd Valley has very good bacon burgers. Good onion rings and fries and fresh fruit shakes as well. No atmosphere, but hey, you're there for a burger. 15259 NE Bel-Red Road...very close to your desired intersection.

                The Pumphouse on NE 8th, near Whole Foods. It's an institution.

                Good pub food. The wings are the best I've had locally. Onion rings are perfect.

                    I'd go with 520 Bar & Grill in the downtown area, but I've got nothing better than the Red Robin in Microsoft-land... (although I've always thought Red Robin puts together a nice little burger)

                    Whibbley's is out there, but it's far from a "Great" burger.
                    I mean, I suppose it's nice to go with the non-chain over a chain, but it's probably on par with Red Robin at best.

                      And that's what were planning, Yoshi, but kinda' hoped there would be something better. I agree, though, Red Robin makes a pretty good burger for the price.

                        maybe the Wagyu burger at Issaquah Brewhouse...medium rare...with a Hazelnut Brown Ale ice cream float

                        XXX Rootbeer drive on Gilman Boulevard in Issaquah. Burgers are huge, shakes are great as are the onion rings. Wouldn't hit this place too often, but once in a while, it shines!

                          Nasty burgers unless you like paper thin shoe leather.
