Red Mill

September 1st, 2008 · 33 Comments

Red Mill (Burgers)
1613 W Dravus St (Map)
Seattle, WA 98119
(206) 284-6363 “The 3 or 4 times I’ve eaten there were all the same – great burger, good price, ‘nuf said!” “I always forget how much I love this place until I get a hankering for a good, old-fashion hamburger that is made fresh.”

    Absolutely the best milkshakes in town! Love the Mandarin Chocolate or Mint Chocolate. But, remember to bring a check or cash. No credit cards.

    Try the obama burger, it is awesome.

  • C.J.

    There isn’t a better burger joint between here and Chicago (unless you count their Phinney location). The shakes are thick, the onion rings are crisp and tangy, and the burgers are worth risking arterial sclerosis.

  • D and C

    Just dam good burgers and side orders – great “malts”. A good buy for the money.

    My brother, a Magnolia resident, took me to the Red Mill on my last visit to Seattle. It is the greatest burger place on earth. I can’t wait to come back to Seattle, so I can go to the Red Mill again.

    I swear they put crack in these things. There are some great burgers to be found in Seattle (Nickerson, Bad Alberts, Ballard Brothers), but for “not quite fast food” this is the best.

  • Joe

    Great food, but the no credit card rule is irritating and keeps me away (because I rarely carry cash). I bet a letter to the IRS would do the trick. They can’t be claiming all of their revenue when it’s just cash, right?

    • Brandon

      They're just stupid. They think they're saving 20 cents plus 2% by not taking cards, but really they're driving away at least a handful of customers who don't want to go to an ATM before dinner.

  • christine

    The best I have had yet in Seattle. I make sure I go to the ATM now before I go there. Love it!

  • Val

    According to, at last surprise health inspection this restaurant got 5 points, with 1 high risk violation.

  • Susan Greenstein

    I came 3,000 to eat here again. I was not disappointed. Can they open a place in Syracuse, NY?

  • John

    This place is a true gem in our city. Sure, there's other burger places, but its the food, the ambience, the quick service that keeps me coming back all the time. Its amazing how fast you get your food when there is a long line ahead of you. The young staff is on the money and I appreciate the no cell phone rule. The toughest decision is whether to get a chicken club or a Red Mill deluxe. Hmmmm, I'm getting hungry right about now.

    Still one of the best burger deals in Seattle. There are “gourmet” burgers around that are great, and expensive, but for your get-down-and-dirty burger, Red Mill is hard to beat.

    yummy yum yum. love the basic burger with all the veg. delish. oh, not that in to the onion rings (weird off-putting spice for me) but lots of folks love 'em.

  • Tareyton

    I just thought the burgers were ok and personally I think they are just 1/4 frozen pattys. They are deffinetly not hand made fresh pattys.

    With every little thing which seems to be developing throughout this particular area, all your viewpoints are actually very exciting. On the other hand, I am sorry, but I do not give credence to your entire idea, all be it stimulating none the less. It appears to everybody that your commentary are actually not entirely rationalized and in reality you are generally your self not wholly confident of your point. In any case I did appreciate reading it.

  • roguesteele

    They call this a gourmet burger joint when in fact the meat its self is nothing more than another frozen patty. I dislike the cell phone rule you phone nazi’s, as the phone is how myself and many others use to make the money that I spent on your over priced average burger.

  • Rahul

    Nothing special, meat is mediocre, the fries are barely make it to mediocre .

  • VueZone

     Love the burgers here. The bacon is so epic.

  • Tim Sale

    not very good anymore. Time for them to spend some more time on a decent burger patty

  • Marlin

    I agree with Tim.  The quality of the food at Red Mill at Interbay has declined to the point that I probably won’t bother to go there anymore.

  • ksd

    Long wait, expensive burgers, not that great of food.  I probably won’t be going to Red Mill anymore.
