Seattle: The Greasy, Cosmetically Dubious Fare at Burgermaster Is Good Enough

AHT: Seattle Adam Lindsley 28 comments

In the battle for Seattle's fast-food burger supremacy, Dick's and Red Mill are the main contenders, at least in terms of popularity. A distant third, with just a smidge better burger if you ask me, is the epically named Burgermaster. And while their burger can hardly be called great, there's something about it that lifts it above the mire. Barely. More

Chain Reaction: Burgerville

Adam Lindsley 13 comments

Portlanders sure are proud of their Burgerville, and in some respects that's justifiable. As the slogan goes, it strives to serve food that's "fresh, local, and sustainable" as often as possible.

Chain Reaction: Fuddruckers

J. Kenji López-Alt 51 comments

Fuddrucker's slogan is "The World's Greatest Hamburgers," a phrase structure generally reserved for Grandpa's mugs and R. Kelly songs. It's an idiom meant to express "I know you're not really the world's greatest [grandpa/boss/burger], but you're mine, and you do a halfway decent job at that." My goal: to see if Fudd's burgers are at least as good at being burgers as my grandpa is at being Gramps. More
