The Tipsy Cow may serve some awesome and loaded, grass-fed beef burgers, but it certainly spreads the love over the entire animal kingdom. Chicken, turkey, tuna, salmon, and pork are also along for the ride (and vegetarians can leave happy as well). Equally important are the truffle fries, obviously. Round out your meal with a boozy milkshake and you've covered all the major food groups. Right?
Although this casual, old-school joint is wedged in a strip mall, it can easily be considered the definition of American eats. Wibbley's simple menu offers fresh burgers (100% ground chuck beef), fries, and milkshakes—the holy trifecta.
Lunchbox Laboratory is a down-to-earth eatery that reinvents classic, American comfort foods. Every week, they concoct new "experiments" -- menus that add an inventive twists to old favorites, ranging from mac & cheese to burgers to shakes (including boozie ones). You're in for surprise nearly every time you stop in, but don't worry, their creations are consistently tasty.
Feed Co. Burgers, a modern, neighborhood burger joint from the Staples Restaurant Group, offers a variety of signature beef, turkey, and bison burgers (the Classic Feed Burger can and should come with an extra patty) as well as sandwiches, sides -- including fries, salads, and a seasonal vegetable tempura program -- and hand-dipped shakes from local vendor Snoqualmie Ice Cream. The 2,000sqft counter service spot is replete with big booths and a full bar, including craft beer on tap, cider, kombucha, and wine.
BeachHouse Bar + Grill serves up burgers, seafood, salads, and sandwiches using natural and local Ingredients. A stunning waterfront view, paired with handcrafted cocktails, make this eatery a perfect spot for weekend brunch.
With menu items like "Addict Burger" (caramelized Walla Walla onion, and garlic aioli) and "Pastrawesome" (fresh pastrami, cheese, cracked black pepper sauce, and mustard seed slaw), this aptly-named dive will keep you coming back for more.
Grab lunch at John Howie Steak and let your taste buds score one of the best prime beef bacon cheeseburgers in the country. For dinner, this restaurant is the go-to for dry-aged steaks. Also try the foie gras with caramelized honeycrisp apples and, for dessert, the Grand Marnier crème brulee.
