I saw this place on TV and it looked good enough to check out. Unfortunately I was not too hungry when I dined here. I started off with the Buffalo Egg Rolls. They were unique and yummy. For dinner I had their take on a chef salad. This too was delicious. A co-worker had a burger and she loved it.... More

This restaurant is a little off the beaten track but definitely worth finding for an awesome burger! I had a blue cheese burger which was juicy and very messy to eat! It was very worth it though! The tots were crunchy on the outside and fluffy in the middle. I just wish I had more time in Seattle! Whenever I... More

Such a fun time with my two teenagers! Trendy, cool, tons of options to build your personal favorite burger creations. Plus, you MUST try the loaded Mac N Cheese. Best Mac N Cheese ANYWHERE! Worth the price! If we lived in Seattle, I would make it there for a meal several times a month!

This place is beyond amazing. Awesome music, great staff, and the food literally makes my mouth water! My favorites is the Tear Jerker burger with added bacon. Obviously bacon makes everything better! The other burger you need to try is the Burger of the Gods. Obviously, with bacon! Also, make sure you get a Cinnamon Cinnamon Toast Crunk shake with...

After seeing Lunchbox Laboratories on one of the food channels several months before our trip, I saved it as a must do while in Seattle. We arrived at about one on a dreary afternoon, and was told there would be about a 10 minute wait. We got sodas and my son got a shake at the bar while we waited.... More

A return visit is always a great pleasure. We have tried many of the best rated burger places in Seattle. None can beat the tastiest treats here. Always fresh, served hot and unique toppings make this a go to place.

Ouch! Took my 2 boys out for a burger and dropped $50 for 3 burgers, 2 waters, and 1 soda. Figure on $11 to $14 per burger, (includes small fries), and $10 for a tall skinny milkshake, $2.75 for sodas, and most condiment sides cost extra. Burger is small, thick patty with tall hard roll bun. Filling but not very... More

Definitely not the place to eat "light," but our family loved the shakes--especially the Banana Creme Pie shake--and the burgers were fantastic. I went for the Churken--a combo of ground chicken and turkey--so I could feel a little less guilty with the bacon, cheese and ranch spread on top. The Classic American was a big hit, as was the special... More

Tucked in a neighborhood away form the main Westlake strip of restaurants, this is a really good burger meal. I had the Mediterranean Burger - lamb with lots of fixins and enjoyed every bite. It was cooked perfectly. Lots of flavor. the appetizers are really fun. I forget what they were called but the jalapeno / cream cheese fritters are... More
