Scooter's Burgers

Hungry in Ballard?? We've got great food, at a good price, with quick and friendly service. Burgers, shakes, sandwiches, fries and hand-battered onion rings and mushrooms! And at a convenient location, just 2 blocks off of Market, next to the QFC.

Ballard is quite different than it was 17 years ago. For better or worse, expansion has greatly altered the landscape as businesses folded, buildings were bulldozed, and condos were constructed at seemingly every corner. Scooter's Burgers and Shakes remained.
Put simply, Scooter's is the best in the business. It has been that way for nearly two decades. The plaques and awards that decorate our walls, the ones that read "Ballard's Best Burger", speak for themselves. Its signature burgers, sandwiches, and shakes keep Scooter's ahead of competitors who fail to capture the unique Scooter's taste. As the saying goes, "Often imitated, but never duplicated.”
To sum it up, Scooter's Burgers and Shakes stands alone atop the mountain of burger locales in Ballard and beyond. As the late journalist and television personality Charles Kuralt once sarcastically quipped, “You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigator uses stars.” What Kuralt means is that market for burger joints is a crowded one. To stay in business, you have to shine brighter than the competition. Scooter's has been doing it for a very long time. And the future looks even brighter.
