This place is owned by a local rancher and cowboy, hence the name "No Brand"..... as in branding cattle, you know? It also makes for a good rhyme!
It's a tick hard to find, even though it's directly on Main Street, but that's because it's tiny. It's tucked next to some large industrial buildings on the south side, just before you enter the business district. Look for the American flag and (of course) an old saddle out front. You know you found the right place when you see the "Cowboys Welcome" sign :-)
The burger stand looks a little different now than it did in 2011, when some of the older TA photos were taken. The sign is white with black lettering, and the inside has changed a bit.
The entire customer area inside can't be more than about 6' x 10'. When we were there, there were two other customers, and yes it was just a tad tight. Don't be surprised to be mingling with farmers, ranchers, 4-H kids, and truck drivers, all wearing cowboy boots. Ferndale is a rural small town and this place is heavily supported by locals. We learned that many regulars phone in their order and just nip in to pick it up.
They use only fresh local grass fed beef. Everything is made to order so it takes longer than a corporate fast food burger place. The menu is on a blackboard and they serve . . . hamburgers. Oh yeah, they also have a hot dog on the menu!
The burgers come with 'everything' on them, but it was no problem to get them without onions. I had a bacon cheeseburger and my husband had the blue cheeseburger. They were about $6 each. The very generous portion of fries ($3.75) were fresh and hot. They don't have a soda fountain, but they do have a good selection of canned pop. They serve *real* milkshakes.
The food here is nothing fancy, so don't expect Red Robin. These are just good old fashioned burgers. There is a counter inside with a couple of stools, but we sat outside on one of the picnic tables.
Good burgers here, and that's no bull ;-)
