Some little-known Seattle trivia: The original owner of Sam’s Tavern went on to found a national chain of burger restaurants called Red Robin. The burgers here are kind of like the ones from Red Robin, only a million times better, and not eaten next to children sticking crayons up their mothers' noses. We especially love the 50 burger, which comes topped with bacon, avocado, gouda, and a creamy bacon ranch. Just in case there wasn’t enough bacon, there’s some blended in the patty for good measure. And as an homage to Red Robin, you better believe you get bottomless steak fries with that beautiful thing. Also important: you can get a Bloody Mary topped with a slider.
