Red Mill

Ooh, we sure do love a Redmill Burger. They’re always extremely fresh and topped with fresh lettuce and tomato making them one of the most mouth-watering burgers in the city. And they also happen to have some insane onion rings and milkshakes if that’s something you’re into. (It’s DEFINITELY something you should be into, by the way).

Loretta’s Northwesterner

We hear you folks, after lots of feedback, it’s been suggested that we add Loretta’s Northwesterner to the list. What we love is that this spot is straight to the point. They describe themselves as “A neighborhood outpost where drinking is a priority, but also happens to have a really good burger”. You can’t go wrong with that folks.

We love this spot year-round but especially during their burger month in March where they invite chefs to create delicious limited-run burgers. That being said, they do run some pretty crazy burger specials throughout the year. So go big with one of those or opt for one of their equally delicious classic burgers.

It’s pretty safe to say this spot is a Capitol Hill classic at this point. You can’t go wrong with their half-pound patties and their signature burger has delicious additions like arugula and truffle aioli. Or you can choose from their 8 other burgers, whatever floats your boat.
