For nearly 40 years, The Onion has been serving gourmet burgers in Spokane, using fresh and local ingredients. According to their website, The Onion is “Spokane’s Original Gourmet Burgers & Brew,” and they’ve been “exceeding expectations since 1978.”
The Onion’s original menu had over 44 different kinds of exotic burgers, and while the number of burgers has gone down over the years, the number of other items has grown.
I’ve eaten at The Onion many times, both at their downtown and North Division locations. Most of the food has been pretty good, although I’ve had a few misses in the past, so I was interested to see if they could nail the food that made them famous: Burgers.
The Onion has a great philosophy, and I’ve eaten some food at the restaurant that I’ve really enjoyed. The Grilled Onion Burger, however, cannot be counted among them.
I’ll be back to The Onion in the future, and I’ll probably order burgers from them again (I’m looking at you, Cougar Gold Burger), but unless the Grilled Onion Burger gets a major overhaul, I’ll be avoiding it from now on.
