Red Mill is not where to go to get a half-pound bison burger with gruyere on an artisan brioche bun with pomme frites. It’s where to go to get a diner-style burger, a paper sack full of the best onion rings in Seattle, and a serious milkshake like s’mores or truffle mint. You’re not coming here for the ambience - you’re coming here to spread out at a picnic table while blissfully unaware of how many calories you’re consuming. This competes on the Lil’ Woody’s level for best casual burger in Seattle.
