Sorry to see Everett’s Burgermaster close

Over the weekend, my husband and I went to eat at Burgermaster on Evergreen Way at 75th, having read that it was closing.

There were a couple of muscle cars in the parking lot to stage the scene. Seated at a large table in the middle of the room were a group of cruisers of a certain age, wearing car club colors. Grandparents with 5 grandkids, and other groupings filled the booths, tables, and counter.

The menu was limited as pulled pork was sold out. I settled for a burger with no pickles, also out of stock, and my husband had his favorite fish sandwich with lots of tarter sauce. So sorry to see the restaurant closed. Thanks for the great food and memories of simpler years.
