Pretty good burger but have had better

Loved the fact that you can eat outside on their special reserved guest area with pic-nic benches. Ordered nachos as a starter and the Miners burger with fries and sodas as a main and had a banana milkshake which I loved! Luckily the nachos never showed up, they forgot them or maybe wanted to do us... read more

This is a Yakima institution. Must visit if you're in the Yakima valley. Old school burger joint. It tastes like Whataburger burgers if you've ever eaten there. Be warned that the portions are huge though!

Some places are considered institutions because they've earned it. Others -- like Miner's -- are institutions, I don't know why ... because they're there? Miner's isn't bad ... it's just that it isn't all that good either. The burgers are big and sloppy, but then so are Burger King Whoppers at about a third the price. The curly fries are... More

I always try to stop at the old time burger/shake places. Miners is an institution in Yakima and now I know why. It is mass production in there so you know the locals love it. I ordered a burger and shake and knew not to order more because the amount of food is just HUGE. The burger was great. The... More

Great variety on the menu and nobody will go home hungry! Portions are huge and the food is actually really good. Curly fries were awesome and all of the burgers we ordered were really good. Well worth trying if you're in Yakima!

The restaurant was recommended to us by my son's teacher and we were not dissapointed. Off the chart size burgers, crisp bacon, fresh tomatoes and lettuce. My older son ordered the salmon basket and it came with a large portion of grilled salmon on a bed of fries and toast. I recommend splitting the burger with a spouse or teen... More

I like a great meal, dressing up, anticipation of fine dining. And then it's a hot long day and I want a great burger and fries. Go to Miners for the great burger and fries. My husband and I split a double miner burger with fresh cut condiments, though why they don't serve a burger with tomato and cheese without... More

We stopped in here with several kids from our son's baseball team Friday night before our tournament. Felt a little rushed into ordering as there was a fast moving line and lots of people taking orders. We've never been here before but always hear people rave about. Was a little shocked that 3 meals cost us $42. Found a place... More
