They are worth the wait!

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... read 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 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

I just moved away from Olympia a few months ago. One of the things I miss most is Van's Burger. The gals that work there are amazing and always remembered me and my dogs even though I don't go there very often. They seriously have the best burger in town. And their fries and fry sauce is out of this... More
