Are you looking for the best burgers in Yakima?

I don't want to be the Burger Police, but sometimes I feel like the price of some of these burgers is getting too dang high around here!


I feel like the burger is the canary in the coal shaft, so to speak.

If the burgers are getting smaller and smaller at the fast-food drive-thru and local restaurants yet the cost for one is getting higher and higher, I feel like something sinister is afoot!

*steps on soapbox* My biggest complaint isn’t just about burgers; it’s also about the cost of chicken mole enchilada dinners at my favorite Mexican restaurants. Don’t even get me started on how pizza prices are outrageous, too! *steps off soapbox*

Dining out at some of Yakima"s best restaurants is a fun experience. Just make sure you have enough to cover the tab!


This one guy was in for a shock when he ordered TWO burgers at a popular fast-food restaurant near him.


It seems that there is no ceiling too high! Now, I'm sure the snippy people reading this will just tell me (and other cheapskates) to just “cook at home” if I don’t like the price of today's burgers.

Hold on, player, it’s not that simple!

Buying groceries has gotten pretty expensive, too. Unless you are on WIC or SNAP, you are feeling the crunch, too.

Suppliers and restaurateurs tell us to blame the food inflation on the COVID pandemic, supply and demand, high minimum wage, pass the cost on to customers, blah, blah, blah, but I feel like that’s just a good excuse.

I know that I shouldn't be complaining because the cost of food is catching up to the times, but before COVID, things were a lot cheaper!
