In celebration of National Burger Day, May 28th, and the official start of burger “search season”, Yelp compiled a list of the Top 100 Burger Spots across the US. They rounded up Yelpers favorites, ranging from fast food to classic burgers, outrageous ingredients, fusion flavors, and more. The most exciting part is that a burger from Bellevue made the top 10 of the best 100 burgers in the US. Let’s check it out.

The delectable local burger is from Facing East – a Bellevue Taiwanese restaurant that describes itself as serving “classic Taiwanese comfort food.” While the name may be new to you, the restaurant has actually been open since 2006.

One Yelper described it as “fatty, delicious… perfection.” It’s a small burger but its rich ingredients pack a flavorful punch. Yelpers were also fans of the general menu which has items ranging from things like sweet milk teas to “heartwarming” beef noodle soup.
