Ask a Seattleite from the Southend whether this iconic red- and yellow-painted drive-thru is called Zest or Zesto’s, and get ready for an inductive argument worthy of winning first prize at a debate team competition. No matter what you call it, come here for the hotlink burger. Things start out normal enough with a charred patty on a sesame seed bun alongside fixings like american cheese, pickles, and lettuce, but then they go and add a red hot link. The salty-spicy sausage is sliced the long way, thrown on the grill, and makes the burger taste like a summer BBQ.
