Seattle Burger Company opens today

The Seattle Burger Company, which offers “gourmet burgers at affordable prices” opens today at 2008 NW 56th St, next door to Malena’s Tacos.

The new burger joint has no signage out front just yet, except for a big yellow sign that says “Coming Soon.” Don’t let that fool you. As of 11 a.m. on Friday, the place will be open for business.

The restaurant pledge is, “We use the freshest and highest quality ingredients to make our ‘burgers’ taste great,” the menu reads. Your basic burger starts at less than $4 with the All American Double (double meat, cheese, smoked bacon & finxins) is just over $7. They also serve garden burgers, chicken burgers, salads, sides and hand dipped shakes. (Thank you Marika for the tip!)

Why the quotes around the word burgers? Is that a euphemism for something?

yes. it means 'hamburger'

I'm excited about this place–sounds good.
although I don't want anyone dipping their hand in my shake!

Maybe because it's short for hamburgers?

I don't know. It's weird though.

it's scares me that they put quotes around burgers. are they serving dog or horse? and their menu smacks exactly like the counters. i for one will not be dining here. no originality.

I look forward to trying a burger from here. You know the saying “Don't knock it till you try it”!

Uh, what do you mean by “doube meet”? Will they feature speed dating?

Oops, I meant “they”. I didn't proofread, just like the author of this piece.

Do we need “another” “burger” joint in Ballard? Meh. Even if it's GREAT, Zak's and the Counter already have my heart (and filled it with juicy lubrication)

Actual businesses are always better than empty store fronts. Besides, the Counter sounds pretty expensive.

my guess would be “burgers” is due to the fact that they have hamburgers, veggie burgers, and chicken burgers – but still, it's weird

My qualm is with them using the word “garden burger” to describe their vegetarian option. Does it mean that they hand-craft a patty out of vegetables freshly harvested from the owner's personal garden? Or does it mean that they use the world's cheapest name-brand frozen veggie burger, gussy it up with some toppings, and add $6 to the price?

Instead of complaining about punctuation, let's here more from folks who have actually walked in and tried it out. I agree with whoever said an open and occupied store front is better than an empty one.
I am curious about the sweet potato fries. They are typically not my favorite but I will have to give them a try.

You said doube, writer said double, you said meet, writer said meat.

Looks like you're the one who needs to proofread AND get glasses!

I just tried it and it was among the best burgers I've ever had. It compares well with Red Mill and is miles ahead of Hamburger Harry's. The meat is juicy, fresh & excellent. The bacon is among the best I've had on a burger in a long time. The fries are fresh and crispy and remind me of the ones i used to get at Gordo's.

The word hamburger itself is odd because as far as I know, most hamburgers have no ham in them. They're more like beefburgers.

And proper grammar and punctuation is in everyone's best interest.

It puts a light upon a business if they don't care enough to write well.

Just got done with a late lunch. Thought I would try a simple chese burger and onion rings as a test. The chese burger was flat and uninspiring. It had the same consistency as a burger from Scooters. Although Scooters taste better. The Onion rings were outstanding however. My wife had the mini burger which were way better then the normal size burger. So all in all kind of a ho hum experience. Nothing to go out of your way for
