The BEST Fries!

We stopped here after reading how this was rated one of the best burgers in the Northwest. We loved our burgers, but I thought their fries were what should be earning awards. Mmmm. We sat outside at a picnic table. Not much ambiance, but good food.

Their burgers are delicious, and pretty much the best "cheat meal" you can ask for! I go to Campus for hangovers too.... Nothin beats a good greasy breakfast sandwich!

We enjoy their Campus Burgers, Chicken strip basket, homemade potato salad and fantastic milkshakes. Always fast friendly service with a smile. They have inside seating as well as a drive through. You won't be hungry after a meal at the U Tote Em

Over the past 4 years we have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The Campus burger is the best! Service is great every time and it's a good value.

I have been enjoying food from this place for many years and I am never disappointed. The staff is always friendly and quick, the food is always fresh, and the fries are amazing.

This is a burger joint, plain and simple. But, a darned good one! These are the burgers I looked forward to when traveling with my parents in the late 1950s. They're not wagon-wheel sized, and they don't come slathered in exotic sauces or smothered in strange toppings. I consider their burgers to be about as traditionally all-American as any I've...

Very good fries, onion rings, and burgers. Hot, large servings, and fresh. Can't go wrong. There's a drive through and walk-up that is popular, but my buddy Alex and I also sit down and eat. Seats are comfortable enough. The location is close to CWU campus and the county fair grounds. Easy parking. Access from the interstate highway is not... More

You cannot go wrong here. If you want a burger (and fries) you will not be disappointed. No frills, just great priced and tasty grub. If you find a flaw, it would be a feat as this place sells quality valued well above the price point they are asking for.

Enjoyed my first visit here. Have been by it many, many times and today I decided to try it. Got the campus burger(bacon cheeseburger) and fries with fry sauce. Both very good. Very friendly service. Seemed a bit high with a drink at about $12. Enjoyed it and glad I tried it.

Campus U-tote-Em has the best burgers in town. Locally owned for more years than I can count. We came in 75 and it was going great then. When people come home they always have to make this a stop.
