I had The Dub which is basically a bacon cheeseburger. Nice big patty, very fresh lettuce and tomato, and condiments. Very tasty...and I'm pretty fussy about my burgers. I would definitely stop again the next time I'm in Packwood and I'm going to tell my buddies who ski at White Pass to be sure and give it a try.

What a fantastic burger. They close at 7 so I can't take too much time talking about the place. Lots of options and few good beers as well.

You order at the counter and then sit down and they bring the food out to your table. The service was good, was not a long wait at all. The seating is a little different, not a lot of tables inside and not setup for large groups. There was more seating outside on picnic tables, that's where we ended up,... More

So we are camping at mossy rock lake campground and we wanted a family drive to Mt Ranier. So we drove through the entire town of packwood looking for lunch. The sign says "best handcrafted burgers in town" They were spot on! Great burgers! Fresh hand crafted burgers of all kinds! The owners were friendly, the food was HOT off... More

We stayed in Packwood two nights visiting Rainier. We ate at Cliff Droppers twice. Burgers are delicious and fresh. The staff we interacted with was very friendly. I don;t understand all of the signs commanding customers where to stand, sit, and not move tables. The food was great though.

We've eaten at this place a few times and keep coming back for two reasons: 1) absolutely scrumptious, hand-formed hamburgers with fresh ingredients; 2) delicious hand crafted milk shakes available in many flavors. The staff is pleasant and the inside and outside dining areas are exceptionally clean. If heading across Hwy 12, or attending events in Packwood, don't miss this... More

Ate at a different Packwood restaurant the previous night and the Cliff Drppers' burgers were SO much better for the same price. Good coleslaw and shakes, nice staff.

Had the elk burger. It was fresh and very tasty. The service is quick and efficient, and they offer a variety of burgers and sandwiches.

There are lots of burger places around, but this place gets it right. Lots of good choices, including a veggie burger and grilled cheese for vegetarians. You have great choices for sides: Fries, tater tots, or coleslaw. The burgers were perfect...had those crispy edges and melty cheese; I had one with bacon which was great. Everything was delicious and so... More

There is nothing like a great burger and fries when you are done skiing and super hungry and you know you need to stop and eat something before you get home. We love the Cliff Droppers burgers and fries and the fence made of skis is cool, too!
