The Three Faces of Jak’s Grill

Buzz-Worthy Happy Hour

The doors aren’t even open when the crowds start to gather for happy hour at Jak’s Grill. The West Seattle location only has 20 seats, and come 4:30 p.m., the scramble can resemble a game of musical chairs. If you’re lucky enough to nab a seat, you’ll be treated to a full hour of food and drink specials. The Jak’s burger is the top-ranking item on this truncated menu, described by the Seattle Times as “the kind of burger your neighbor grills on the Weber during the July Fourth weekend.” The smokey half-pound patty is topped with the basics: tomato, lettuce, and onions, with cheese available for an extra dollar.

Beef Done Right

Burgers aren’t the only well-grilled treat on Jak’s menu. You’ll also find prime top sirloin, new york strips, and even filet mignon—all aged a minimum of 28 days and cooked simply without pretension. And while you won’t get an elaborate plating or fancy garnish, you will get a bearnaise or demi-glace, a large cut of steak, and hearty portions of salad, veggies, potatoes, and fresh bread to round out your meal.

Weekend Brunch

Weekend brunches also bring long lines to Jak’s reservation-free dining rooms. During this time, you can nab a burger, a steak sandwich, or a jazzed up breakfast benedict served atop Jak’s famous potato pancakes. As if that weren’t enticement enough, a brunch happy hour rewards early birds with discount mimosas and breakfast basics.

Fatburger's gourmet burgers range from 2.5 oz. single-patty "baby fat" burgers ($2.49) to the XXXL 24 oz. thrice-stacked "triple king" ($9.69), with three more moderate options in between. Made from 100% lean beef, Fatburger's gourmet burger combos start at $4.99 (beer/burger combos start at $5.99), and all of the grilled goodies come topped with fresh veggies, while optional add-ons ($.59–$.89 each) are available for a custom chow-down. Plop a scoop of chili on your burger and cover it with a slice of cheese for a decadent dining experience, or create a breakfast-themed burger with bacon and an egg. Fatburger's chicken sandwich ($4.99 alone or $8.99 for combo; grilled, fried, or spicy), turkey burger ($4.49 alone or $7.99 for combo), and veggie burger ($4.79 alone or $8.49 for combo) offer awesome alternatives to bovine-based meals. Homemade onion rings ($2.89) or skinny fries ($2.39) act as lovable sidekicks for your brooding, misunderstood burger without a cause, while a sweet Maui-banana or cookies-and-cream milkshake ($3.79) can double as the skankified Olivia Newton-John it wins during the final musical number.
