Has Anyone Been to Blazing Onion Burgers in Mill Creek?

I drove by it and wondered if it was worth a try. If you have been there, please tell me what you think, and what it compares to in terms of local burger places...and prices.

  1. I have been there several times, being local to the restaurant. The onion rings and sweet potato fries are excellent. The burgers leave me a bit underwhelmed. For my money and taste, I prefer Shake N Go on Seattle Hill Road, since they also have great onion rings, and a selection of wraps, and sandwiches in addition to burgers. I enjoy the blue cheese burger there.

    PS: The Burgermaster south of Mill Creek on the Bothell-Everett Highway is also very good.

    1. Did the one in Mill Creek Town Center move? I wanted to try it a couple months ago and couldn't find it.

      Teddy's is not too far away on 140th in Woodinville, and it's pretty decent. Although last time I was there, a whole slew of customers were taking their burgers back because they were "pink" (even though they specifically tell you that they do that). Go there before they start making everyone's burgers like a hockey puck.

        It was still there this morning when I rode my bicycle past it. It is at the north end of the town center, by LA Fitness. The restaurant is in the Creekside Village section of the center, and it backs up onto the Bothell-Everett highway. It is next to the italian restaurant, Capri.

        1. I've been to the one in Gig Harbor, which is a little newer I think. Basically, the burger was dry and bland. The sides and toppings were all good overall, but the burger needed more fat. I've been spoiled with the luscious burgers at The Spotted Pig and Shake Shack in NYC, and everything else seems like lean chuck next to them.

          1. I have been there a few times. It's in the "Red Robin" category, a bit fancier and pricer than the average burger joint. Some good variety, excellent sweet potato fries and onion rings. It's good if you want to pay for sit-down, full dining experience. If I wanted take-out, I'd go elsewhere, something more price friendly.

              That's what I suspected. I'm guessing the rents are too high at Mill Creek Town Center (and the clientele a tad too "safe") to profitably open an interesting eatery there.
