How I heard of this place: My friend Rocky posted a photograph of the Seattle Burger Co. chalkboard menu on his Facebook page. I figure if Rocky goes, I gotta go. Plus, it just opened on February 19, 2010, so why not be one of the first to partake of one of the three new burger joints that have opened in Ballard this year?
Type of cuisine: Burgers. Plain and simple.
Ambiance: Casual and small. Dine in at one of the booths (with wooden bench) or bar style raised tables and chairs. Or order to go and take away a thick, made-to-order ice cream shake, sweet potato fries, onion rings or one of the beef, chicken or vegetarian burgers.
What I ordered: Two of us dined here. I ordered the Jr. Blues burger ($6.49) with blue cheese, peppered bacon, lettuce, tomato and red onion. My dining companion, who hadn’t eaten all day and was craving burgers (yes, plural), ordered the Bacon Cheese Deluxe ($5.99) with melted orange cheddar, peppered bacon, lettuce, tomato and red onion as well as the Sauteed Mushroom ($5.79) served with melted Swiss cheese and soft, sauteed mushrooms. Instead of ordering a side of fries or onion rings, both of us opted for a hand-crafted shake. I chose the peanut butter chocolate, on a whim, after my dining companion ordered the Oreo shake.
What I loved: I loved the blue cheese and I enjoyed the sauteed mushroom burger the most of the three burgers. While the beef patties were large, they were somewhat dry. The fresh ingredients of lettuce, tomato and red onion were nice and crisp. The show-stopper, though, was the peanut butter chocolate shake! A smooth blend of soft, creamy peanut butter and the light hint of chocolate to offset the saltiness of peanut butter.The Oreo shake, while I was too slow to sample it, I was told was great!
Why I loved it: One co-owner and gentleman who took our order was very friendly and pleased to take our orders, offering suggestions for the best burger option between two. The interior is quaint and cozy and very friendly, as you are seated immediately next to your neighbors if you are sitting at one of the three booth tables.
Cost: Mid to high for a burger ($3.85 to $7.39), shake ($3.79) and sides.
