It doesn't count til you make it in the big city is a maxim you know all too well from the time you brought your variety show to Broadway, only to get hit by a car, then think you're an advertising exec named Phil, up until your friends throw a tribute show and Miss Piggy shakes the sense into you in front of most of the characters from Sesame Street. For a diner taking over the big city sans Muppets, iBurger & Shakes.
After first setting up shop in far-flung Snoqualmie, this purveyor of greasy-spoon-style beefiness has brought its massive burger menu to Seatown via a tiny counter-service spot where -- aside from the smattering of seats in the narrow, angled dining room -- the grubbing is done street-side under a service-station style awning held over from when the space was a radiator repair shop, which is obviously a business model no space can contain indefinitely. The charbroiled awesome includes classics like the red onion/house sauce Double Cheese, and the sauteed Mushroom Burger w/ Swiss; plus there's specialty numbers like the bacon/onion rings/bbq sauced Western, which one would assume comes with
blue chips. Liquid is covered by real-ice-cream shakes and root beer floats in flavors ranging from basic (chocolate, vanilla), to fruity (strawberry, blackberry, banana), to indulgent (mocha, Oreo), all of which can be turned into malts, which were super popular back in the 1950's, when people spoke Olde English.
In addition to its namesakes, B&S also serves seafood & chips combos (with 6 fishy options including shrimp, salmon, and oysters), and sides/starters like fried zucchini, popcorn shrimp, and classic onion rings, which could really make it with the help of a side of Great Muppet capers.
