There is a small shop in Fall City (East King County) that cranks out a very good product. The sign on the door says "If you are offended by grease, salt or ketchup, take your business elsewhere".

Is that the red and white striped shack on the Preston-Fall City Rd?

    Since we're talking about making our own, here's a recipe for sliders that I came up with over the Christmas holidays that turned out quite well.  Elements come from a couple of resources.  The Chipotle mayo in particular was derived from a recipe from the Bobby Flay website.

    Sean's Take on a Slider:

    December 27, 2010

    Take ~3 cups extra lean ground beef with a dash of olive oil, 2 chopped green onions, 3-4 crushed cloves of garlic.  Sprinkle with seasoning salt.  Add some Worcestershire sauce if you like.  Mix thoroughly.  Make six small patties.  Rest in fridge until firm.

    Fry on high heat for 4 minutes to a side.

    Place on perforated slider buns.  Garnish top with a slice of mozzarella, sliced red onion.

    Steam for 20-30 seconds on high heat on a bed of diced white onions.

    Rest for a minute and garnish bottom with a dab of chipotle mayo.

    Serve.

    The Sean version of chipotle mayo:

    Take ½ cup regular mayo and mix it with ¼ -½ tsp chipotle powder and a healthy splash of lemon or lime juice.  Rest in fridge.  Longer rest is better, but ¼-½ hour is fine.

    The Proud Cut Saloon in Cody, WY has some of the best burgers I've ever had.  Jalapeno Cheddar burger is my favorite there.  Or you can get a buffalo burger if you are on a diet.  About a 1/2 pound cooked medium.  Thank you.   :clap

    +1 on the Chuckbox!  Better burgers than the HAG even if the scenery isn't always so reliably awesome.  I've heard great things about Crown but gas @ $3.00/gallon probably precludes a road trip.  Home made gets my vote when time is not of the essence.  Favorites around here are meatloaf burgers with fresh jalapeno slices, sausage burgers with provolone on ciabatta rolls.  Ground chuck rules.   ;)

    I love Epic Mealtime.  Those guys rock.  Now, look at what they are cooking, and picture that on a normal scale... That would actually be a tasty burger.  Mixing in sausage and bacon into the beef... that would be awesome.

    Try my take on a 'Luther' burger named after Luther VanDross (sp?) the Gospel Soul singer.
    Carefully slice 1 large KrispyKreme doughnut in half.
    Make from 2 to 4 pre-made hamburger patties on a grill.
     Salt and pepper as you grill.
    Splash Worchester sauce on burgers for flavor.
    Place burgers one at a time on bottom KrispyKreme doughnut half, placing sliced colby-jack, pepper-jack, and provalone cheeses on each burger as you stack it.
    Place sauted onions, lettuce, and any other veggies on top of that.
    Add condiments, top with other krispykreme half.
    Enjoy!

    Something like a bazillion calories and hearing your arteries clog that makes it fun!

    Heh heh heh. That's ok. It's a big burger and I usually add several bacon slices on top of the burgers as I stack them. But that is just me.

    As the Ogre himself mentioned-  A burger at Bohemian Grill?  If you are between me and said burger sitting next to a "manly" sized glass of amber ale they call Viennese, your life is truly at stake.  

    Locally, for a much lower price than Bohemian, and for a more family/kid friendly burger joint - http://jcws.com/  NO heat lamps.  FRESH ingredients.  And they understand the difference between a malt and a shake.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    Not bad prices at all, and if half as good as you say, sounds like a very nice place.




    I think I'm going to have to start my own burger/bbq place. My town could sorely use an actual good place to eat (my town suffers from an effect...if we have a decent restaurant or "good" chain open up, within a month it's horrible).

    I've noticed that anywhere I roam.  It's like they sell the top-shelf burgers and fries for 6 months to get you hooked, and then switch to "alternative" meats.

    kinda like here,  one of the better places to eat is actually the local hospital.  The grill there is actually pretty good.  rather limited on your choice each day, but it's good and reasonable.   Rotary club meeting last Thursday, did not like the meal choice at the club meeting, so I walk down the hallway to the grill, got a full plate of Roast Beef, mashed potatoes and brown gravy, for $3.00.

    I think the reason for that is that when a new franchise opens up, they bring in experienced staff from other locations for the opening, most of which will be supervisors, managers, or other senior staff.  After they they leave, the location is left with something less than an all star staff.
