Barbecue lovers such as myself certainly love smoked ribs or a good pulled pork sandwich, but our palates aren’t limited to the BBQ-sauce-slathered meats! We also appreciate a good burger, and today, I want to focus on the deliciousness of Seattle’s best Hawaiian burgers, which add the sweetness of pineapple to fill out the juicy burger flavors.  


Ballard Brothers Seafood & Burgers | 5303 15th Ave NW | 206-784-4440

Enjoy a burger of a whole other caliber at Ballard Brothers, where the burger meat is comprised of chopped steak instead of ground beef. Their Hawaiian burger is cooked to order in Ballard Brothers’ secret Hawaiian sauce and topped with a grilled pineapple in addition to the typical toppings.


Blue Moon Burgers | Multiple Locations

The burgers at Blue Moon are made with premium, locally-sourced beef for the best quality and taste. Their Blue Hawaiian burger is topped with a thick housemade teriyaki glaze, pepper jack cheese, grilled pineapple, lettuce, red onions, pickles and their house Blue Moon sauce on a brioche bun. Vegetarian? Get this burger with a black bean or falafel patty.


NYP Bar & Grill | Multiple Locations

With multiple locations scattered around the state, there are plenty of places to grab a yummy burger. They don’t have a Hawaiian burger per-se, but their John Wayne burger is a solid favorite for barbecue lovers. It’s topped with Swiss, aged cheddar, bourbon BBQ sauce, bacon, an over-easy egg, onion rings, and the classic toppings of lettuce, tomato, red onion, and their house BBQ aioli.


Rain City Burgers | 6501 Roosevelt Way NE | 206-525-3542

Rain City has two tasty burgers for folks who love barbecue, such as myself. Their Hawaiian Burger has two grilled pineapples, pepper jack cheese and teriyaki sauce in addition to the classic toppings. The BBQ burger is slathered with caramelized onions, cheddar and BBQ sauce.


Teddy's Bigger Burgers | 6900 E Green Lake Way N | 206-582-1885

Teddy’s Bigger Burgers is actually founded and based out of Hawaii, so you can bet their Hawaiian burger is a good one! At the Green Lake location, sink your teeth into a teriyaki burger that’s piled high with grilled pineapple and all of the classic toppings.
