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

First, let's get this out of the way. Vans makes a very good burger. In fact, it's just as good as an IN-'N'-OUT burger. In fact, if you close your eyes, it tastes identical to an IN-'N'-OUT burger. I gave it four stars for taste, but I would have given it three stars for overall value. A Vans burger is... More

The grilled hot dogs are to die for - have the dog with the works. Don't hesitate to try the "frings" either. Frings are a mix of onion rings and french fries (in the same bag). Erica at the grill and Kelsey at the window are an awesome combo. Check it out. You'll be back!

After years of eating at this wonderful little place...I flew back to WA to bring my family there. Let me tell you they couldn't stop raving about how good the burgers, shakes & frings were...I can't preach enough about supporting local businesses and this one my friends is a must stop!! The service is amazing and the view is even... More
