“A must eat for your bucketlist”
The original Red Mill was located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle and opened in 1937. It closed in 1967. It was known as a diner and ice creamery with table and counter service. The current Red Mills were opened first in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood in 1994 and the second location in the Interbay neighborhood in 1998. In its first year of operation the Red Mill received honorable mention in the best burger category in the Seattle Weekly's annual Best of Seattle issue. It has subsequently won the best burger award every year since, along with numerous other accolades. Featured on United States of Bacon!
The best burger joint in Seattle, and one of the best in America. That's not even an exaggeration. This place proudly hangs an article by GQ magazine that lists Red Mill's bacon cheeseburger as one of the 25 burgers to eat before you die. I used to live right down the street, and I can tell you it's the truth - I gained a considerable amount of weight thanks to Red Mill.
They aren't fancy and they don't offer a huge selection, but for five bucks you can get an excellent burger with the best bacon you've ever had, and for a few bucks more add some onion rings that are as big as your fist.
If you're going at a typical lunch or dinner hour, expect a wait, because these places get packed.
