    My favorite burger place in Ballard. It's not a Red Mill burger, but it's so close and you don't have to travel far, wait in line forever, and have cash only. Very reliable food- have never been disappointed. Fries are always cooked perfectly. The burgers are so big I am full from the “mini” ones. Prices are very reasonable. They've got some big tables for large groups and a few comfy booths. There are a couple of tv's as well. To those who commented on the decor, actual customers bring in those license plates/road signs on the wall and they give you a free burger.

    Went in New Year’s Eve around 1pm. Poor poor service. Actually no service. After sitting about five minutes a server cleaned a table right next to us without acknowledging our party. We then asked at the counter if perhaps we’d made a mistake and should order there. No, no the second server said. I’ll be right over. A few minutes later his buddies walked in and were greeted with a warm welcome while he continued to ignore us.

    We walked. If that little tiny burger joint can’t even say hello within ten minutes. C’mon they don’t need our business.
