1. Brgr Bar 111 Occidental Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104 (Pioneer Square)

Pioneer Square's home to this outpost of BRGR Bar. Along with their famed meat patties, the revamped burger joint also serves korean tacos and Kalbi rice bowls, which'll definitely have you agreeing that vowels are totally overrated.

2. Henry's Tavern 1518 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134 (Sodo)

At this beer- and brew-slinging tavern from the guys behind Cutters and Palisade, don't miss the burger that combines three of our favorite things: the bacon mac-and-cheese burger.

3. 8oz Burger & Co. 1401 Broadway, Seattle, WA 98122 (Capitol Hill)

8oz Burger & Co. emphasizes local and sustainable ingredients more than the average burger chain -- the house-blended patties are made from grass-fed beef that’s sourced from cattle farms in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, and the brioche buns are baked daily at a nearby bakery. That said, you can’t go wrong with the signature 8oz Burger, a fanciful combination of arugula, balsamic onions, bacon, cheddar, and truffle aioli. There’s also the option to build your own burger that, when tailored to your personal tastes, can be as sophisticated (aged gruyere, fig jam, prosciutto) or basic (white American cheese) as you like.

4. Red Mill Burgers 1613 W Dravus St, Seattle, WA 98119 (Phinney Ridge)

This cash-only Seattle staple lives up to the national level television hype, and is cheap to boot. Make sure to grab a shake ad fries too!

5. 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.

6. Uneeda Burger 4302 Fremont Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103 (Fremont)

This Fremont burger joint serves up everything from the fancy to the messy, and if a burger doesn’t suit your fancy (why are you even here?), Uneeda Burger also has a hefty selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads. Equipped with a patio out front, you can chow down and tan at the same time.

7. The Swinery 3207 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116 (West Seattle)

The Swinery’s signature burger highlights one-third pound Painted Hills ground beef, caramelized onions, tomato, fresh greens, house pickles, red onion, and your choice of bleu, cheddar, provolone, or Swiss cheese… or in layman's terms: the works.

8. E J Burger 4510 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105 (University District)

Cheap, fast, and chock full of options (the menu consists of 16 different ways to enjoy your favorite food, including teriyaki or in fish form), this burger joint just off the Ave is a fail-safe spot to score tasty lunch or dinner that won’t break the bank.

9. Rain City Burgers 6501 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, WA 98115

Try the 12th Man Burger (two beef patties, four slices of bacon, and two slices of American cheese on a Kaiser bun) or the Sonics Burger (cheddar & Swiss cheese, caramelized onion, and Rain City hot sauce on a Kaiser Bun). Just try to avoid this spot during lunch because the little kiddies over at Roosevelt High School love to raid this place during their daily break from class.

10. Zippy's Giant Burgers 9614 14th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98106 (South Seattle)

Decamping from their tiny West Seattle digs, this beef-slinger's got a new primary-colored/pinball-equipped space adorned with vintage photos in which to serve its beloved comestibles, including the slider-style Lil Zips, and full-size meat discs (the Mam

11. Burgermaster 3040 NE 45th St, Seattle, WA 98105 (North Seattle)

The best burger off Aurora is as easy as a flick of your headlights -- this Seattle area chain is at your beck and call when it comes to burgers. Since 1952, this drive-up spot has contributed to the fry mountains forming underneath our car seats, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

12. Dick's Drive-In 111 NE 45th St, Seattle, WA 98105 (Wallingford)

This drive-in brings you back to simpler times with great eats, we suggest getting a Deluxe with fries and a shake.
