(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!!!


burger me asap

as i sit here on my couch trying

desperately to break my caffe vita addiction,

i am pondering my lunch options.

piecora’s is close, endless pho and thai¬†options are all over but what i really want is a juicy ass burger with all the fixin’s. problem is i don’t want to have to go to a sit down place like broadway grill or costal kitchen.

what i want is a casual place i can walk to and order, get my shit and peace out. remember when kidd valley was on 15th?

so it seems to get burger on the fast up here on the hill only leads me to dick’s on broadway-which is great-but not what i am looking for. i can eat one of those suckers in 45 seconds no problem.

the only other option is the honey hole which is good for sandwiches and beer but not a favorite of mine for a burger.

it seems there are places all over other neighborhoods in seattle that serve up this kind of thing but not here. why?!

i’m thinking we could squeeze something in somewhere within the trifecta or down broadway. a place that offers burgers and fries at a good take-out price. they can crank out a special sauce and offer some cool options like pineapple, avacado¬†or grilled onions. mhmmmmm.

damn, i’m hungry.
