This is a tiny place but in my estimation, one of the best burgers I have ever had! Ellensburg is a college town and the grounds on campus are very beautiful. It is worthy to find yourself at 810 E. University Way ordering an excellent burger!

It is a small place but serves up big burgers...etc. I did the carryout as I hit it just a lunch time so was packed. Well worth the wait.

I have been visiting Campus U-Tote-Em for about 27 years and I have always had steady service and exactly the burger, fries etc..I have ordered. I am not rating this place based on health or how good their food is for your body, but more based on what they are offering and their service. This is a solid bet if... More

We don't do the fast food scene often but when we do most often it is a trip to Campus. When my daughter comes home, this is her most requested dinner. Always nummy

My boyfriend and I come in regularly and have never had anything other than superb service! Their burgers are amazing, and I LOVE their chicken strips! Wonderful environment and wonderful food!

After them being closed for the weekend was happy to seem them open for the holiday, so, of course I had to get a burger. Quick service tons of choices and fresh made each time, what else could you ask for. Campus always delivers, every time, no wonder it's always the popular place to go.

I used the FullestParkingLotEqualsBestFood method of choosing my burger on this night. It was just lovely - juicy and hot with fresh, crunchy veggies. My only disappointment was returning for another later in the week and discovering that they closed so early. Odd for a college town. Edit - had to go back and downgrade the service rating. Auto play... More

My families favorite for burgers, fries and shakes! So much variety for burgers and flavors of shakes! The fry sauce is good too! Friendly service and small area for sitting inside or outside to eat. Also has a drive thru.

Get a fry basket to share and a burger each or else you'll over spend. It's good food but you could easily spend way too much
