When the original Red Mill closed in 1967 after 30 years of great diner fare and ice cream, Seattle was left with but a few places to get really good burgers, crispy onion rings or butterscotch malts. Fortunately, John and Babe Shepherd saw this need and opened this Interbay gem in 1994. It was an immediate success. In fact, so popular is this burger joint that the lunch line tends to stretch outside, and the likes of Al Bundy and Darth Vader (actors Ed O'Neil and James Earl Jones, respectively) have been seen enjoying a burger or two here. A word to the wise: the Red Mill is not cell phone tolerant, so make sure your ringer is off. An additional location is at Phinney Ridge. A sister restaurant, Red Mill Totem House, has now found a home in Ballard, across the locks.
- Best Value: "The Travel Channel's Adam Richman and the Food Network's Guy Fieri have both stopped in to check out this local landmark, and each proclaimed Red Mill's culinary merits after indulging in its beefy delights."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: Red Mill Burgers has gotten national press for its quality burgers and delectable malts. Choose from several locations, and enjoy!
