I am so greatful every time I'm out on a burger prowl with meat eaters and we end up at a place that sells veggie burgers. A recent trip to Alki beach with friends from out of town landed us at Pepperdocks in order to satisfy the desire for what the meat-eater-Seattlites swear is a special hamburger, and for me the surprise satisfaction of a lunch that consisted of more than fries.
The Pepperdocks veggie burger was Garden Burger brand and was grilled on the griddle (not just microwaved) and made up with all the fixins: chopped onion, lettuce, tomato, pickle, some kind of mayonaisey sauce, soft bun. I ordered mine with cheese, and it came with a couple of slices of American cheese melted on top.
The fries were fresh and good enough, and the onion rings had chopped green herbs in their coarse batter that made them look especially good.
In addition to the regular types of condiments (ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper), Pepperdocks also has Tabasco and garlic chili sauce, which I used as a dip for my french fries and it was delicious.
An afternoon at Alki Beach is always fun, and it is even more fun to be able to eat lunch out while you're there. A big thanks to Pepperdocks for including the vegetarians.
