We couldn’t have a list of the best burgers in Seattle Southside without including Dick’s Drive-In. Locals know, but visitors might think of Dick’s as Seattle’s version of In-N-Out (although to loyal Seattleites, there is no competition). Dick’s features a simple menu of burgers, fries, soda, and shakes and they’ve mastered their craft. Dick’s is opening up in our area on Pacific Highway in October, but if you can’t wait to try it, ride the light rail up to the Capitol Hill station and look for the famous “Dick’s Hamburgers” sign.

Bowlero South Seattle is home to this classic, American burger with the dial turned up to 11. Two patties, american cheese, lettuce, pickles, grilled onions, and Bowlero's special "monster" sauce. I assure you, after eating this burger, you won't be hungry for the rest of the night. You might even have some trouble standing up for your next turn...it's a hefty one!

The hole-in-the-wall burger and teriyaki shack on the border of SeaTac and Des Moines holds the rare distinction in fusion restaurants at succeeding at both sides of the spectrum. The teriyaki is great, and the burgers are classic. A bacon cheeseburger and some crinkle cut fries will have you coming back for more, and sure…grab a side of shrimp fried rice while you’re at it.

The Habit opened in Tukwila a couple years ago to huge fanfare. The lines have died down a bit (thankfully), but the flavor of their world-famous charburger is still as spectacular as ever. In 2015, Consumer Reports named Habit’s Charburger as the best burger in America, beating out IN-N-OUT, Shake Shack, and Five Guys. Take one bite into this caramelized onion covered creation and you’ll see why. You can also try different variations of the charburger like the popular Santa Barbara Char with two patties and avocado on sourdough bread. Learn More
Sharp’s Roasthouse knows a thing or two about meat. So, when you stop by and aren’t in the mood for brisket or prime rib, try one their prime grade marble "hamburgs," like the Seattle Classic. Using many local ingredients like aged Columbia Valley cheddar, the Seattle Classic takes the bacon cheeseburger and turns it up a few notches with their marbled beef, peppered brown sugar bacon, and Jim’s Special Drive-In Sauce.
