My wife and I stopped by Vans after a trip to Northwest Trex. We both chose the Fair Burger, I ordered fries and my partner ordered onion rings. We were pleasantly surprised when we were told that it was customer appreciation day and got a great deal on our meal. After receiving our food we drove a few feet and... More

We knew it would be a wait, but it wasn't so bad. The burgers tasted fresh, and the fries and onion rings were crispy and delicious.

It is a 20 minute drive to Van's for me and I have made the trip a couple times. I was satisfied with burger and fries, but not enough to make the trip very often. Clean place and friendly staff. Above average burger for sure. Price is right. A good choice if you are in the vicinity. It is all... More

I was drawn in by the clever roadside advertising and the lines indicating good food. I tried to get some of everything to give them a really good try. I was tempted to ask them to change the condiments on the burger, but decided to have it with their 1000 island type sauce just as they intended. Wow! It was... More

I drove all the way from Germany for this burger and it was amazing. I've even been driving around Europe for years with one their stickers on my car just to confuse people.

We came to Washington to drive the 101 and Highway 1. When we arrived in Olympia we were ready to eat! There were some great options but we noticed that we just happened to be here when Van's Burger was actually open!! We went a little out of our way to make sure we could be there before they closed... More

We always order "Big Pete Doubles". Fries and chocolate shake. Where do I begin? The fantastic service? Fresh local beef? All the fresh ingredients? It's nothing like a "Double Double" at a popular chain down south. Van's "Big Pete Double" is so much better. Just give it a try. You won't be dissapointed. FYI, the hours are totally wrong on...

Best day to go is on a weekday if you have it off, otherwise be patient, but so worth it. Love that the dog can get a treat
