Seward Park’s ground round go-to ups the game with the Angry Bird burger, a grilled chicken breast with pepper jack cheese, covered with Bent Hot sauce. Don’t pig out. Hotheads like the Human Torch with a broiled beef patty, habanero, jalapeno, red, green and yellow peppers.

With three new burgers each week (they're called "experiments"), the lab stays sharp. Look for King Felix’s Heater right now, with jalapenos, bleu cheese and bacon. Also playing are the Dork & Beans (dork = pork and duck) and the Herb Bird #37 made with churken (chicken and turkey), Swiss, onions,roasted garlic and basil pesto mayos.

The juicy Sonics burger arrives before the team does, and it’s a doozy with caramelized onions, hot sauce, Rain City sauce, cheddar and Swiss cheese. $6.99 and so worth it.

Water buffalo – they’re not just for Italian mozzarella anymore. The $15 w.b. burger is an artfully ground beast (those critters are enormous) with taleggio cheese, some tomato, house pickles, lettuces and aioli.

The Elk Burger (the oversized deer, not your inebriated BFOE-affiliated aunt) is a menu regular but fixins change all the time. Right now the game patty comes with asparagus slaw, Havarti cheese, pesto aioli, greens and a tomato slice for $13. Vegheads like the Crispy Emmer Veggie Burger with portobello mushroom, romaine, tomato, red onions and some special sauce for $8.

The Giddy Up burger rocks Rat City at least through April. The beef meets bacon, grilled onions, pickles, lettuce and some Tillamook white cheddar cheese, and comes with BBQ sauce. That should just about do it.
