Legendary Restaurant to close after 70 years of business
One of Seattle’s oldest and most loved restaurants will soon shut its doors for good. Unfortunately for customers of Burgermaster, its flagship U-Village location won’t be around for much longer. This is because the Safeway next door is due for redevelopment.
Rather sadly, the land used by Burgermaster is owned by the same company, meaning the land will be prioritized for Safeway. According to the owner, this arrangement had been in place for the past 10 years. With this being said, its closure was always a possibility. This news won’t go down well with the local student population, whom the eatery has served for decades.
As of right now, Burgermaster has not announced the impending closure on its social media accounts. However, it is believed that this venue will close within the next few months, depending on how quickly the process takes from the landlord. With this in mind, for locals the chance remains to visit before it shuts.
Founded in 1952, Burgermaster is a classic, old-school burger joint in Seattle. This simplistic menu involves burgers, fries, and shakes. The burgers are hand-formed, grilled to perfection, and served on a toasted bun, with your choice of toppings. Sporting a retro vibe, Burgermaster has a classic neon sign and its red-and-white decor.
