Food Porn: Fremont’s Uneeda Burger

Delicious gourmet burgers, shakes, and a summery atmosphere.

Summertime warrants late sunsets, enjoying the great outdoors, and BBQs and burgers. Burgers are one of my favorite foods. Burgers + fries? I’m set. In fact, that might be my last meal. Uneeda Burger does their burgers right with all-natural Painted Hills beef and fresh, creative, and flavorful toppings. The atmosphere is laid back and carefree with a year-round wooden deck and picnic tables. Even if it’s a gloomy Seattle day, grab a friend and order a burger and shake and your day will be turned around!

They have 10 burgers on their menu, ranging from the #1 Classic with romaine lettuce, tomato, pickles, and a special sauce to #9 Medi-terra with a lamb patty, charred peppers & onions, manchego cheese, tempura lemons, arugula and cilantro. The medi-terra is a tall burger with a lot of complex flavors and the tempura lemon is unlike anything we’ve ever tasted. Be prepared for a mouthful!

My favorite is the #8 Crimini Mushroom with porcini and black truffle salt, shallots, gruyere cheese and this amazing truffle mayo. Every burger comes with the option to add a fried egg or bacon (yes to both, please). The patty is cooked medium and the balance of juicy and savory flavors is phenomenal. #4 BBQ Smash with charred onions, bacon, cheddar, and BBQ sauce is a close second.

For those who come with their families or friends and may not want a burger, there are other menu items, including Buffalo-style chicken, Chipotle chicken sandwiches, Carolina Pulled Pork, and salads.

Save room for the hand-dipped Snoqualmie Gourmet ice cream shakes in vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, black & blueberry, salted caramel, and Oreo. They often have a special too like lemon bar or pomegranate, depending on the season.

They debut burger specials every few weeks (no rhyme or reason when they change, more or less due to demand or whimsical creativity). You can bring your dog and they offer gluten-free buns!

Open daily from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm.
