(If you didn’t read the subject line in the voice of Homer Simpson then you failed. Now go back & start all over again.)

Guys guess what? Today I actually left Capitol Hill. No, this is not a joke. Some friends dragged me away from my cozy little bubble & down to South Lake Union for some bomb ass burgers at Lunchbox Laboratory.

I’ve heard about this place forever and now I know I’ve been missin’ out. At it’s new location it’s within walking distance from the hill. I was tempted to make my own custom burger but instead ordered the ‘Homage to Dick’s Deluxe’ with sweet potato fries. DAMN, THAT SHIT WAS GOOD! I will actually be tempted to venture away from my comfort zone more often just for this place. (also partially just to stare at the massive lava lamps everywhere, NGL.)

But did you hear we are getting two more burger joints here at home?

Blue Moon Burgers comes to Bway

& Li’l Woodys too! Deets here.

But what is the best burger already on the hill?

  • Dicks is perfect for your drunk walk home after the bar.
  • Linda’s sliders are a classic & at a buck each at HH it’s a no brainier.
  • Charlie’s big beefy guys have always sedated me in a blissful food coma.
  • Uni’s In&out inspired burgers hit the spot especially topped with melted onions.

But what am I missing? What haven’t I tried? Are burgers at The Deluxe good? Should I stop hating on the fancy pants-ness of Quinns and actually go try theirs? Leave a comment and let me know because I want to overdose on BEEF & KETCHUP!!!

    i don’t eat meat (all the time), but when i want a burger, i turn to Quinn’s (don’t cringe!). or Red Mill on Phinney…two completely different locations, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do if you’ve got a craving.

    You’re making me huuuuuuuuungry. You’re not missing ANYTHING at Deluxe, sadly. And I’ve tried enough times to be sure. I haven’t tried Quinn’s, but I consider myself a burger aficionado, and Unicorn has my favorite on the hill. Twilight has really good burgers, too.

    The “Floozy Burger” at Tin Table is blissful, and during happy hour it’s a steal at $9… AND it comes w/shoestring fries. The name’s a little kitschy, but on a weekend afternoon it’s a pretty good way to shake a hangover (or to get drunk all over again).
