Unique fast food, burgers, etc.

Was wondering if there were any Northwest fast food recs for places that they don't have on the east coast (like In-n-Out,or Teddys in Hawaii) that should not be missed on our visit? Also husband was asking for recs on good burger joint, not necessarily fast food? Thanks for the advice.

  1. Fast food, unique and "should not be missed" should never be used in the same post, Daisy!

    1. re: firecracker

      I agree with firecracker. Dicks, Ivar's, Red Mill, Kidd Valley, Burgermaster, etc. are all very miss-able. Don't waste a meal in any of the fast food chains.

        Katsu is one-of-a-kind and highly recommended. The nori fries are great!

      2. Not in Seattle (closest is Centralia) is Burgerville:

        1. I'd say Dick's and Ivar's are the two most iconic Seattle fast food spots. I don't know that they're "can't miss" strictly from a food perspective, but I think they're both part of the Seattle experience.

          Red Mill, Burgermaster, Kidd Valley are a couple of local burger chains . Some folks love Red Mill's burger (and it's been on Travel Channel shows for what that's worth), but I think they're just ok.

          My two favorite burgers in the city right now are UNeeda Burger and 8 oz Burger.

          1. Uneeda burger (in Fremont) is my favorite for a good burger! They have a couple "unique" burgers on the menu... Try the Mediteranean one with Tempura Lemons!
