Hello, summer! The season is ripe for sunglasses, a cold drink and ... burgers. Picnic burgers. Backyard BBQ burgers. Balcony grill-out burgers. To celebrate the joys of this summer classic, we thought it'd be fun to feature the burger spots around town, and let readers decide on their favorite, in a multi-round burger bracket competition.
Given the sheer number of burgers in Seattle, we narrowed down the parameters: Each of the restaurants listed here is based in the greater Seattle area and is burger-centric (or best known for their burgers). And we've rounded up some of their attributes, from their most-popular burgers to their vegetarian options. May the best burger restaurant win.
