This reminds me of a country diner, which I love. Huge portions and low prices, combined with a laid back feel. Not a place to go if you're on a diet, but a good place to go if you're hungry!

If you are looking for American comfort food, this could be your place. I am biased against not being a meat eater and liking plenty of spice, but my wife wanted to go back here for old time's sake, so we did. I had a hot turkey sandwich and they did give me a choice of bread (rye). There was... More

I have been coming here since I was a child. The smell when you walk in the door is delightful. This is a come as you are diner that serves true home cooked style food. Breakfast served all day. French toast to die for, all served with a friendly smile. And, best of all, it won't empty your wallet. A... More

Only one vegan option, but many vegetarian options. Charming decor and fantastic service. We will be back!

The kids and adults stopped in after church for a fuel up. This Lakewood fixture is known for solid breakfast fare and our meals did not disappoint. The kids loved the bacon and pancakes while the adults favored omelettes or eggs Benedict. Service was fast, friendly and attentive. The place is loud so conversation has to be done over the...

Burs is a fantastic breakfast or late-night joint, and can accommodate large groups. Their menu is expansive -- plenty of salad, sandwich, and burger options, home-style plates like turkey and mashed potatoes, the occasional seafood special, and BREAKFAST ALL DAY. Plus, they'll make almost anything you ask for, if they have the ingredients on-hand. Service is always friendly and accommodating.... More

We were on a trip to Seattle for the New Year and decided to get out of the metropolitan area. Mid afternoon, we started looking for a lunch place and Burs came up as a top suggestion via Google. The outward appearance looked quaint and kitschy, so right up our alley! Inside was just as nice. Our waitress was great...... More

The South Sound Restaurant Group has bought up a variety of old diners in the area. If you go to The Poodle Dog, Knapp's, The Harvester or Hob Nob - you've been to one of their properties. Burs is the best of the bunch - with its pie case and much of its uniqueness still intact. The lunch counter and... More
