An unshakeable burger shack: Fremont's Uneeda Burger is serving up unique, great-quality hamburgers

Scott Staples has long been a fixture of Seattle’s restaurant scene, having made a name for himself with the fine-dining fare of Restaurant Zoë and his innovative gastropub, Quinn’s. If you’re looking for a more family-friendly offering of the chef’s stunning cuisine, head to Uneeda Burger on Fremont Avenue, where you and your kids can sample “seriously delicious” burgers, sandwiches, and more.

Staples opened the self-proclaimed “roadside-style burger shack” in 2010 in a converted auto and boat repair shop, and it soon began to climb the ranks of Seattle’s favorite burger spots. You can feel good about treating the family here; Uneeda prides itself on using excellent quality, locally sourced ingredients. The burgers are made with all-natural Painted Hills beef (for an additional $2 or $3, you can substitute pasture-raised beef from Gleason Ranch), and with its “classic” burger clocking in at only $5, a family dinner isn’t going to break the bank.

Uneeda Burger is serving up family-friendly burger goodness.

Menu options range from standard burger choices to the more adventurous, with weekly specials always keeping the choices fresh. The Medi-terra burger, a lamb patty topped with manchego cheese and the bursting flavors of charred peppers and onions, cilantro, arugula, and thin slices of tempura lemons, is a particular standout.

The Crispy Emmer burger is a hearty and delicious vegetarian option, and all burgers are available with a gluten-free bun. Sides range from fresh rotating seasonal salads to the decadent poutine, where hand-cut french fries are topped with beef gravy and cheese sauce; the things that dreams are made of.

Uneeda Burger gets a thumbs-up from a tough customer.

While the food is excellent, the thing that may have your kids begging to come back is a hand-dipped milkshake made with Snoqualmie ice cream. These come in a range of different flavors, and the sizes are generous enough for two or three little ones to share. With a number of microbrews and classic beers on tap, as well as wine options, there’s something for parents, too.

Make the most of these warm September evenings and bring the family to Uneeda’s sunny deck for an exceptional meal at a reasonable price. Uneeda Burger? I know I do.
