Good Burger and Fries

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.

Can't go wrong when eating at the u-totem. Burgers are tasty, love the fries and sauces. Umyummy milkshakes. And you can take your food to go to the park with kids or friends. If you are craving a good burger go here. Be reay to spend a little money but totally worth it

I grew up in Ellensburg, but have only been back a handful of times in the last 20 years. My brother and I have fond memories of the ice cream, the shakes, the burgers and fries from this place. We were headed to a memorial service and all I wanted was an oreo shake, so I got one. The food... More

One of the top 5 places I believe in the State to get a burger, the Dagwood burger basket is the best in my opinion. Eaten there a lot over the years, now that I'm older I avoid fast food more, but still love to once in a while spoil myself here :)

A great place to stop for some old fashioned burger love. The fries were wonderful. The service had a smile, and we left with a smile. They hooked us up with a the campus burger special...yum. We will be returning for this quality tastiness.

They do burgers right. They have lots of great choices. Onion rings are great, too. French fries could be better but they aren't bad.

In the sea of hamburger joints which is the general Ellensburg food scene, Campus U-Tote-Em is the best. Oddly enough though, it's the fries and sauces I love most. They make the sauces in house... the ranch, tartar, and fry sauce are all really good. The burgers are well above average and have plenty of fresh vegetation. Buffalo is an... More

This locally owned and operated family restaurant has a drive-through, a kitschy foody totem pole, popular hamburgers/fries/drink and excellent garden burgers. Pretty fast for cook to order. Seating inside and out. My favorite things to order include the aforementioned garden burger, with deep fried cauliflower and a milkshake. They usually have a neat flavor of the month and the shakes... More

I had to meet someone in Ellensburg this past weekend. I saw the glowing reviews for this restaurant, and decided to check it out. It was average at best. The burger was not bad... but lacked flavor. The onion rings were over-cooked and lacked flavor. The malt was great. This specific restaurant has inside and outside seating. The outside seating... More
