Huge Burgers

This place is known for their colossal sized burgers. Portions are large and the shakes are tasty. It is quite costly though! We spent over $50 for our family. We all shared 2 burgers and a basket of fries and chicken tenders and each got a small shake.

This drive-in restaurant is amazing! Over a hundred years old, Miner's has served delicious food without a break. Huge, juicy hamburgers are just the beginning. So many things on the menu! You order/pay and your food is delivered to your table. I don't visit Yakima without at least one meal at Miner's. And, I know at least a couple of... More

My mom and Aunt have been going to Miner's since the 50's. I took them there to get a small pineapple shake. It cost us 11.00 for two. To add pineapple to the shakes we were charged .89 for each shake. The small shake starts at 3.69. I won't be going back. There is better food elsewhere.

Locals will quickly tell you that this is the place to get the best burger in town. Not only the best but the largest. You do not leave the table hungry. They have a good selection of burgers and salads on their menu. The line up may look long but that gives you a chance to make your choices so... More

What happened to the home of the Big Miner? The burger got smaller and the price went up ! It use to be worth the money now it's just ordinary!!

This restaurant has been around for 30 years BEFORE I graduated from High School in the early 70's! The food is pricier than it used to be, but isn't every place like that? The Big Miner burger is awesome, and you have to try the Onion rings. It's all made fresh, no heat lamps, and the Miner family still own... More

The food was both quality and quantity. We ordered burger combos and nobody was able to finish, even though it was so good. The shakes are wonderful.

We love this place when we go through Yakima. I grew up going to Miner's after sports games and it hasn't changed much (other than the higher prices😉). The hamburgers are huge and they give tons of fries or tater tots with your order. They charge an extra $1.50 to upgrade your drink to a shake and they are yummy.... More

If you go to Yakima - you have to go to Miners. Get the peanut butter shake with a big miner meal and fry sauce. If I ever had to choose a "last meal" that would be it.
