John Howie Steak (address and info)
John Howie’s a familiar face in the Seattle area due to his handful of restaurants and TV ads, but people on the West side of Lake Washington should also be familiar with Washington’s best burger by now. Available only during Mon-Fri lunch, this thing is like a Minnesotan’s wet dream: it starts with a massive patty comprised of 60% Prime chuck and 40% Kurobuta bacon, stuffed with New York cheddar and Jack, which then gets crammed into a brioche bun and topped with fried onions, all of which combine to ensure that people from Seattle, and everywhere else, know where to go for a sweet burger.
