America's Best Burger Cities 2012
No. 20 Seattle
The Emerald City squeaked into the burger top 20, but it handily won the categories for both tech-savvy and smart locals. Suitably cutting-edge burgers can be found at Lunchbox Laboratory in South Lake Union, where the Dork features a house-blended patty made of duck and pork. But the city’s patron saint of techies, Bill Gates, has professed his loyalty to Dick’s Drive-In, which has been around since the 1950s and where a cheeseburger costs a not-just-for-billionaires $1.50.
