Li’l Woody’s (Ballard) – Burgers and shakes

Li’l Woody’s menu is limited: burgers, French fries and (massive) onion rings, plus shakes made with Full Tilt ice cream. I’m a fan of little restaurants that focus on getting a handful of dishes right, and Li’l Woody’s does just that.

My personal favorite is the Li’l Woody – hold the onions. For $5.00 I get a perfectly balanced cheeseburger that fits in the palm of my hand. It’s also my 8 year old’s favorite thing to get there, and it’s the perfect size for her. For a few more dollars, get the “Big Woody” – it’s a bigger cheeseburger and comes with bacon. When I’m not in the mood for their grass-fed beef, I get the salmon burger, which is delicious and loaded up with Mama’s Li’l peppers, which add a LOT of flavor. (You can also ask for them on the side. They’re very tangy with some spice.) They usually have a special burger that changes every week. And for vegetarians and non-dairy folks, there is a very good bean burger, and root beer floats with vegan ice cream.

You can also get Mexican Coke, beers, ciders, and other drinks.┬áThe staff is friendly but you don’t get full table service here – they expect you to bus your own. But for under $8 you can get a really great, no-fuss burger that will hit the spot!
