These are the kind of burgers that have the juices running down your arms! Great choices on the menu. Definitely not your average fast food restaurant

If you braught your appetite you are going to love eating here. The atmosphere and location to shopping is as good as it gets. You must try their burgers and specialty fries for a flavor you will not soon forget. There is room enough here for multiple bus loads of patrons as well as some cozy corners to fit you... More

This place has been in Yakima almost forever, and seems to be a popular eatery, but I find the food quality to be sub-par and the cleanliness questionable. I really don't enjoy fighting off flies while trying to eat.

Heard lots about this place and warned about long lines. Showed up for lunch and was first in line! Winner winner chicken dinner! Huge inside seating area. Can't believe it could ever be that full. Ordered the "Big Miner Burger" with onion rings. Burger was pretty big and on a ginormous bun. I like a bit more meat to bun... More

Order one miner burger and have them cut it in half. one order of french fries will serve both of you and order shakes or pop to wash the food down. This is not a meal you will want to eat after 5 pm unless you are ready to go to bed for the night. Lots of food and a... More

Stopped in on a Sunday night late - 10:30 maybe. We were traveling and just wanted something quick. Really didn't expect to find any place open, so we were very happy that they were, and the burger and fries we had were amazing. Made one mistake, should have ordered 1 and split it. Neither my wife or I ate more... More

Had the miner burger. It is large but still just a frozen patty. Ours was warm and not hot. Onion rings were good. This place is more hype than quality and I am sure Yakima has better.
