( – Pioneer Square Neighborhood, Seattle, Washington


How I heard of this place: An article on Thrillist listing the best neighborhood burgers in Seattle appealed to me; I shared it with friends and we began a monthly mission to sample all of the burgers in Seattle, starting with some of the best. This month, it was time to try BRGR Bar.

Type of cuisine: Burgers. Fancy schmancy ones, but burgers nonetheless.

What I ordered: As we awaited the fifth in our party, we started with one Blackberry Lemonade ($4) and a Spring Soda ($4) with housemate cucumber, sage and lemon syrups with soda water. (Each included one free refill.) One order of Garlic Fries ($7) with olive oil, minced garlic, garlic sauce, parmesan and parsley,

and one order of Bleu Cheese Fries ($7) with bleu crumbles, house bleu sauce, parsley.

Our burgers, the main show, (local house blend beef patties from Pasco, WA and organic brioche buns fresh from Grand Central Bakery): for me, the BMB ($10 burger only) with smoked bacon, sautéed mushroom, melted bleu crumble, house bleu cheese sauce.
For my husband, the Bacon Brie ($10 burger only), a beef patty topped with center-cut bacon, melted brie, caramelized pear, arugula, and sweet date aioli.

And one Root Beer Float ($5) for dessert!

What I loved: Number one: The Garlic Fries. Number Two: The Oaxaca Burger. Number Three: refreshing Spring Soda.
Why I loved it: Not at all crowded on this Wednesday evening at 6:30 for an early-ish dinner.  While small and unaccompanied, a great burger!
Cost: Average to high for a well-crafted and constructed burger ($9-$12 each)
