    +1 for The 27, although the hamburger I had there was a lambburger. The lambburger was excellent.

    I think I ate at one in Meridian, Idaho year before last. If it was (old man memory loss here!), I remember it being pretty good, and, I had the sweet potato fries!

    Ive, I was up mowing and watering some property I have up Kings Lake Road yesterday. As I was passing by I saw that the Usk Grill is closed and will be reopening under new management. Not sure why but I personally thought they were trying to be too gourmet for most of the locals. I know, not hard to do.:D

    No help on the burgers but I did stop and treat my grandson to breakfast at Grub and More, just south of Miller's One Stop.
    Generous portions, heated plates, and a good senior/kids menu if you're ever in the mood. I had biscuits & gravy with an egg and hashbrowns for $5.75 and grandson had a huge pancake, egg, and sausage for $6.00. On the downside, the service can be slow as Pop waits tables and Mom does the cooking.

    Back on the burgers, you might try the Milk Bottle on Garland. I haven't been there since they rebuilt after the fire but they use to make their own buns, serve the shakes in metal mixing cup, offer soup or various salads instead of fries etc.
    Downside, rather limited seating.

    +1. Was at a convention and ate at the one just South of the Tulalip Casino (& Cabelas) in Marysville. Outstanding.
    Always interested to hear of other quick stops elsewhere. Sometimes they let me out.

    After the raw pile of crap on a bun I got from them at the Charlotte, NC airport...for which I had no time to go back and get another...never again. Even the 23 lbs of fries in the bottom of the bag were shit...WAY over rated in my book. Try Michael D's in CDA, ID (off 15th Street exit) -- awesome breakfasts and burgers!

    Eureka Burger should be in Seattle by the end of the year. They have amazing burgers and a great selection of craft beers on tap. I love the one here in Bakersfield, CA.

    You know Ive that when you grill an excellent burger at home anything you get in a restaurant is going to be second rate .I remember those pineapple stuffed burgers you made along the shore of Lake Sidley nobody make a burger like that. I like the burgers at the Onion on the north side the mushroom swiss is a favorite of mine, but the real reason I went there was to order the thick cut beer battered onion rings, they are the best ever. I am on the search for Onion rings that good anywhere within a hundred miles of Show Low Az.

    Jesse, those burgers were made with Painted Hills Natural Beef grown in Wheeler County, Oregon. No antibiotics and no hormones, pure vegetarian diet with no animal parts. Hard to dupicate at your average burger joint but should be available at some of the higher end places. Like all cooking, starting with the best ingredients makes the job a hell of a lot easier. I'll look up that Onion place, some rings and a cold ale would make a mighty fine snack.
