Great State Burger

Great State Burger recently got purchased by the Sea Creatures team (a la Bateau, Walrus And The Carpenter) and it’s way better than it used to be—at least when it comes to the Ballard location. The crinkle fries are hot and crunchy, the burgers are well-salted and juicy, and the milkshakes are thick and frosty. If you’re desperate for a double stack with gooey yellow american cheese alongside a chocolate malt, you can feel good about grabbing that here.

Bateau on Capitol Hill is the place to get a unique steak in Seattle—and they happen to serve the best burger in town, too.
