So, I was out running errands in Ballard the other day, when I decided that I wanted to stop and get a little something to eat. I started by heading down Market, which anyone that has been in Ballard on a sunny Saturday knows is a mistake. Finally, by the time I got to 24th, I was ready to head home. I was tired of being in the car, and figured I could make myself a sandwich or something at home. It was at that point that I noticed a little burger restaurant behind some trees out of the corner of my eye. Being open to trying something new, I turned in.
When I walked in, I felt like I had stepped back in time a little bit. It wasn’t that it was old and run down or anything. Scooter’s Burgers just had this retro vibe about it. The menu board was very simple, black and white with red headers. The restaurant didn’t really have any tables, just chairs along counter rails. There were awards on the walls, most from at least 5 years ago. It was just the perfect little burger joint for what I was looking for.
So, when I got to the counter, what did I order? Turkey and Swiss naturally. I spent a lot of time trying to talk myself into a burger, but knowing that I was going to be doing fried chicken for dinner later, I decided I had to go with something lighter, and the turkey seemed like a good way to go.
