    You can get enormous, super-customized burgers (pictured here is the Truffle Love), tater tots with a variety of seasoning blends, and amazingly delicious milkshakes. Read more

    The “lab” serves about a dozen chocolate- and vanilla-based shakes, plus a handful of eccentric, boozy ones like the Cinnamon Toast Crunk spiked with Fireball Cinnamon Whisky. Read more

    Get the James West - beef patty cooked with a cowboy steak rub, with Guajillo cream cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce and onion rings. 😵 add a fried egg - you won't regret it.

    It's a great little spot for burgers and the customer service has been good the 2 times I've been. I'm not much of a beer drinker but these were 1.25 and they were good. Burgers were good and filling.

    Modestly named “Burger of the Gods,” this heavenly burger is a mix of freshly ground sirloin, prime rib, and rib eye, topped with sweet onions and sharp Gorgonzola sauce. Need we say more?

    Almond Joy. Weekly News, and with use of local Snoqualmie Ice Cream and homemade chocolate ganache, there's no question why shakes like Boston Crème Donut took home the prize. Read more

    The burgers and milkshakes are really good. There's almond joy, all the Neapolitan flavors, banana crime pie, different candy bar flavors, and Nutella milkshake are all good.

    The Tribute to the Dicks Deluxe is pricier than the original, but also bigger, messier & comparatively loaded. I like the natural light at this location. It was what I wanted when I wanted it.

    Great selection of unique burgers made to order (or build your own) plus tasty cocktails and shakes.

    The smokey burger is more bacon than patty and that is not a put down. Not only do they offer the best burgers, but they have tater tots! For adults. I love the place.

    Great place to hang out! Burgers are HUGE and I recommend sharing or taking half home. Request your shake to be in beaker to look SUPEEEER nerdy!

    I tend to do a make your own burger version, but the veggie patties are good. I also am a sucker for the peanut butter cup smoothie.

    The sweet potato fries with sweet chili mayo were excellent, but avoid the dork (duck and pork) and stick with the beef burgers.

    Helps to wait for coupons or specials, but it's one of the best burgers in Seattle. Shakes are great too.

    We were told the happy hour menu is "in transition". She handed us the specials menu (same specials all day) and said that's the new happy hour. No deals to be found. Won't be coming back for happy hr

    Try the "dork" (duck + pork) patty. Happy hour features $4 drinks plus discounted burgers, fries, and milkshakes. Read more

    as a patron of the original location, i am disappointed-don't care for the upscale ambiance & while the burgers still taste pretty good, the price went up to $14 & the patties went from 1/2 to 1/4lb

    If you're lucky enough to walk in on a day when they have the Snickers Shake, don't leave without trying it!

    This quirky restaurant uses local Snoqualmie Ice Cream in its shakes. (The Almond Joy is a favorite) Read more

    I had Santa FeSlammer. It was good but I was epecting more after reading all the reviews. The meat was good, bun was nothing special, but the additional ingredients excess the taste of the meat.

    Sad! After hearing so many wonderful things, we took an adventure to see the new location. Small burgers (nothing like the pictures online) small shots, red robinesque decor. I could go on...

    Excellent server, but the food was an explosive mess. Certainly not for those of you with families, as there isn't a clean way to eat the food. 7 dollars for an 8 oz milkshake is highway robbery.
