Here’s to the tastiest fungus among us. Who knew it would reach its flavor peak when grilled, seasoned, and piled atop a beef patty? When you’re in Seattle and craving a burger with a little something extra, make sure these joints are on your radar.
Blue Moon Burgers | Multiple locations
Stop in at any of Blue Moon’s four Seattle locations in South Lake Union, Fremont, Capitol Hill, or Alki Beach and go for the Blue Shroom: a Washington black angus beef patty is stacked with fresh grilled portabella mushrooms, cherry wood smoked bacon, blue cheese crumbles, lettuce, sweet red onions, pickles, and special Blue Moon sauce on a fluffy brioche bun. Or, feel free to venture beyond the set menu and add grilled crimini mushrooms to any burger of your choice.
The Lodge Sports Grille | Multiple locations
The Lodge honors Pac-12 collegiate teams with a tribute spanning its entire burger menu. Both the Husky Big Dawg and the OSU Mushroom Swiss feature our star ingredient paired with more favorite toppings that complement a flame-broiled beef patty. The former entry includes caramelized onions, mushrooms, lettuce, bacon, melty Tillamook white cheddar, and garlic horseradish aioli; the latter works its magic via Swiss cheese, more grilled mushrooms, lettuce, and roasted garlic aioli. No matter your choice, enjoy it with fries or house potato chips on the side.
The Pike Pub at Pike Brewing Company | 1415 1st Ave | 206-622-6044
What goes well with an ice-cold Pike IPA when hunger strikes and peanuts and pretzels won’t do? It’s gotta be a thick ‘n juicy burger alongside hot, salty fries. Wander back from Pike Brewing’s beer bar to the dining room area and order the High Stall Mushroom Burger. You’ll be greeted with a toasted Macrina Bakery bun, local Foraged and Found wild mushroom and dill cream spread, Emmenthaler cheese, roasted High Stall mushrooms, red onions, lettuce, and a 1/3 lb. ground beef patty.
Teddy's Bigger Burgers | 6900 Greenlake Way N Unit C | 206-582-1885
Teriyaki-coated mushrooms might be the only true contender of classic grilled mushrooms. Teddy’s pairs them with grilled onions, Swiss cheese, and its signature 100% ground chuck flame-broiled patty in the Kailua specialty burger. You can also opt to simply add mushrooms to any other burger of your choice.
Uneeda Burger | 4302 Fremont Ave N | 206-547-2600
Fremont’s Uneeda Burger offers up two shroom-centric menu items, one for sworn carnivores and one for veggie people. The #8 features a 1/3-pounder, crimini and porcini mushrooms with black truffle salt, shallots, and gruyere cheese, while the #10 swaps the patty for hearty portobellos topped with romaine lettuce, tomato, and red onions on a bun smothered with special sauce.
