1. Tipsy Cow Burger Bar 16345 Cleveland St, Redmond, WA 98052

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?
