The 5 Best Burger Restaurants In Yakima
Famous Burger pride themselves on having the best food in Yakima, and when it comes to their burgers, we might have to agree. They offer a number of burger combinations beyond the cheese, bacon, and onion rings found elsewhere. At this burger restaurant you can order combinations that include mushrooms, egg, jalapenos, and more. All of their burgers come with lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles.
We highly recommend ordering their Famous Bonsai burger, especially if you have a monster appetite because on top of the meat patty you’ll get ham, bacon, two slices of swiss cheese, avocado, juicy pineapple, and grilled onions to boot!
On top of the numerous burger combinations on offer at Famous Burger, this burger joint also offers a range of other sandwich options such as the sirloin steak sandwich, Philly steak sandwich, Teriyake chicken sandwich, pork rib sandwich, and cod fish sandwich.

The Chop House At The Old Warehouse
If you are looking for good quality hamburgers using fresh ingredients, the Chop House is the restaurant for you! Located in the agriculturally-rich town of Zillah, this unique eatery and bar also hosts live music and furniture auctions.
Anyway, back to their delicious burgers… All of their beef patties are locally raised, fresh, and seasoned with a herb and pepper blend. The all-natural beef here is then flame grilled and served on a toasted brioche bun.
Want to know what style of burgers you can order? Well the menu offers some real gourmet options such as the Guinness Mushroom burger (grilled mushrooms and onions finished with a guinness reduction topped with swiss cheese), the Firehouse (grilled jalapenos topped with pepper jack cheese and chipotle aoli), and our favorite, the Blue Gouda, a tongue-tingling blend of blue cheese crumbles and smoked gouda.

2nd Street Grill
The 2nd Street Grill restaurant located in the heart of Yakima’s downtown area has been a gathering place of locals for over ten years. This establishment offers a casual dining experience with a contemporary menu in a beautiful brick building that is nearly 100 years old! There is a bar which features over 24 draft beers with a heavy emphasis on craft beers from the Pacific Northwest as well as local wines should you need an alcoholic beverage.
Okay, time to discuss their burgers. The 2nd Street Grill definitely has burgers to suit anyone’s taste buds; from the Black & Bleu (a blackened burger patty with bacon, blue cheese, and sauteed mushrooms), to the Queso Burger (with fried egg, avocado, tomato, lettuce, tortilla strips, and jalapeno queso), and the Toasted Avocado Sandwich for vegetarians (avocado, fresh mozzarella, tomato, fresh basil, and pesto). But our favorite would have to be the Chicken ‘N Waffle; chicken with cheese, egg, bacon, and maple glaze on a Belgian waffle.
The burgers here are a little on the pricey side but you really get good quality food here. All burgers are served with your choice of fries, potato chips, or Italian penne pasta salad.

This fine dining restaurant takes your request on how rare or well done you would like your meat cooked seriously and bend over backwards to keep their guests happy. On top of that, the restaurant has a really elegant interior and friendly atmosphere.

Miner’s Drive-In Restaurant
Miner’s Drive-In Restaurant offers all American hamburgers plus hotdogs, chicken sandwiches, and milk shakes in very generously sized proportions. They offer drive-thru or seating inside their huge establishment which can easily seat a couple hundred people.
This burger joint used to be Yakima’s most beloved burger restaurant and even though it has been surpassed in favor of more modern options, they continue to attract loyal customers who come for the nostalgia. Oh, and for the large serving portions… which is definitely an understatement.
