Loretta's Northwesterner

Seattle

This hole in the wall doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it's home to one of Seattle's favorite joints for the simple pleasures in life -- that is, burgers and beer. Loretta's is known for its Tavern Burger, which, much like the bar itself, is simple and unfussy (it consists of a patty, cheese, raw white onions, pickles, and a bun), but its house-made sauce and overall juiciness packs a huge punch.
