“best burger in Seattle”
Owners John and Babe Shepherd named the Red Mill in honor of their two late sisters, Kathleen and Monica Shepherd, both of whom worked at the original red mill as waitresses and would bring home french fries and other goodies for their younger siblings including Michael and Mark Shepherd. Numerous Shepherds are or have been involved in running the current stores. The Red Mill mural painted by noted local artist Tom Brady on the Phinney Ridge location features two faceless girls picking flowers under the Mill. These girls represent Kathleen and Monica Shepherd.
This is the best, greasiest, absolutely wort it burger in all of Seattle. You're probably going to wait for half an hour to get it but who cares, you'll be glad you did. The place is always packed so just try not to visit during lunch or dinner times and you'll get a seat.
GQ once wrote that Red Mill makes one of the 25 burgers you must eat before you die, and they're right. There's no frills here, just huge burgers with the biggest, crispiest bacon you've ever eaten. You can't go wrong with the Red Mill Deluxe.
Decent burger. Not sure it lived up to the hype
