4. SPORT 140 4th Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109 (Queen Anne)

This memorabilia- and flatscreen-heavy sports emporium from the guy behind Seastar and John Howie Steak (quick, guess what his name is! No, silly, it's John Howie!) solidified its place on our list by recently improving its already awesome menu of dude-approved eats with the addition of apps like Crispy Corn & Jalapeno Fritter w/ honey butter, and breaking-fasts like the Canadian and regular bacon-topped Three Little Pigs, too many of which'll cause you to huff and puff and...god you're a fatty.

6. Sam's Tavern 1024 E Pike St, Seattle, WA 98122 (Capitol Hill)

Sam's Tavern is a tribute to an old bar -- the dive that became the original Red Robin -- and gets its old-timey roadhouse feel from an owner whose family started those colorfully descriptive bird-themed burger joints.

7. King's Hardware 5225 Ballard Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107 (Ballard)

King's Hardware is decked out with taxidermy and stocked with regional brews, but the rustic pub's main attraction is its tasty and creative burger options, like the peanut butter and bacon-based After School Special. Aside from classic and specialty burgers, there are hot wings, onion rings, and similar greased-up "sidekicks" on the menu. You can bring your beer and burger outside and chill on the patio, or stay inside and challenge your friends to a round of skee-ball.
