BurgerFew summer foods are as iconic and well-loved as the burger. Whether you’re a Kent resident or just passing through, here are a few places in town to get a fantastic hamburger.

Family Drive-In

Often considered the best burger joint in Kent, Family Drive-In on West Meeker Street is a small, no-frills diner with an extensive menu. For more than 20 years, Family Drive-In has been serving up delicious hamburgers, thick handmade milkshakes, crinkle-cut fries, and fry sauce. There’s a small seating area inside the restaurant and outdoor seating when the weather is nice.

Other items on the menu include fried fish and chips, bacon cheeseburgers, fish burgers, garden burgers, fried scallops, clam strips, and foot-long hotdogs.

The Habit Burger Grill

The Habit Burger Grill is a fast-casual chain restaurant with a location on Kent-Kangley Road. Burgers are 100 percent fresh ground beef chargrilled over an open flame. One of the most popular combo options at The Habit Burger Grill is the Double Charburger, which features two beef patties, lettuce, tomatoes, caramelized onions, pickles, and mayonnaise on a toasted bun.

Other great options are the Teriyaki Charburger with grilled pineapple and teriyaki sauce, the Roasted Garlic Portabella Char with portabella mushrooms and melted white cheese, and the Santa Barbara Char with avocado on sourdough. You can also order your burger lettuce wrapped for a low-carb option.

As the sides, The Habit Burger Grill features french fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, and side salads, but it’s the tempura green beans that are truly out of this world!

Country Burger and Teriyaki

A down-home joint on Meeker Street specializing in burgers and teriyaki chicken, Country Burger and Teriyaki is easy to pass, but it shouldn’t be missed. This friendly hole-in-the-wall restaurant produces some of the area’s tastiest burgers, including its Monster Burger combo with a patty that’s about 4 inches high!

The mix of Japanese teriyaki fusion and all-American fare is an unusual one, but it only serves to satisfy diverse taste buds. When ordering a burger, make sure to get a side of fries and a malt or shake to round out the meal. If you prefer the teriyaki menu, you can choose from spicy chicken, chicken teriyaki, and chicken katsu with steamed rice.

Yukon Grill

A family run restaurant on 68th Avenue, Yukon Grill serves a diverse menu, but it’s the burgers that keep everyone talking! Each burger is freshly made to order, which includes the beef patties and buns. Due to its location in a business strip, the lines tend to be long during lunchtime, but the wait is worth it!

Keep an eye out for Yukon Grill’s daily specials, which have consisted of meatloaf sandwiches, turkey croissants, Cuban sandwiches, gyro pitas, and meatball subs. You might also catch a specialty burger served with your choice of side.

You don’t have to go far in Kent to enjoy an amazing hamburger. With so many great eateries around town renowned for their juicy burgers, fresh sides, and creamy milkshakes, you can take care of those cravings in no time!
