Best of Seattle

Best burger in Seattle

I know, it’s a big statement. I still think about this burger since the first time, and am now as I’m writing this. Meet Loretta’s Northwesterner. Thanks to our friend and chef, Brian Walczyk of the Tom Douglas fam and his wife Bea for taking us.

Located in the Seattle neighborhood of South Park, Loretta’s is like a cool cabin in the woods with a with wood paneling, icy frozen glasses of beer, vinyl and board games to play, and an open-air patio with an Airstream trailer to hang out in.

There’s a few burgers on the menu, but we went for the Tavern Burger ($4) with its charbroiled patty, American cheese, chopped onion, sliced pickles, and a special house sauce on a buttery toasted bun. Up it to a double tavern (shown here) or deluxe for a little more. Handcut fries are available for $3 and their icy cold beers were so cold that there were ice chips on top. We liked the Lucille from Georgetown Brewing. The vibe is mellow, full of locals from the neighborhood.




Loretta’s is located at 8617 14th Ave S, Seattle, WA. Check out their full menu here.

What’s your favorite burger?
