Lunchbox Laboratory – delicious, comforting, juicy, eclectic, gourmet. I know I will definitely be heading back to Lunchbox Laboratory, with an empty stomach… and will try the Dogsticks and the skinny fries. There is a happy hour menu as well as a separate kids menu. The main menu offers a number of appetizers, salads, a slew of burgers (Lunchbox Original Burgers and Build Your Own Burger), Hand-Dipped Shakes (some with booze), a nice selection of innovative cocktails, dessert, and a bit more. A suggestion? Maybe more game day type snacks. There are weekly experiments…food and drink (like The Upstate New Yorker or The Miami Heater). What did we try for our first visit? On this night, we started with cocktails and crispy tots and then we built our own burgers… I chose the Super-beef patty and my husband (the Dork, he said), as he chose the Dork patty (Duck,Pork combo). 🙂 See pics below. The burgers come with lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onion…and then you have choices of numerous sauces, toppings, patties, bacon, and cheeses (extra charge for some). Also, you get a choice of a side… like skinny fries, sweet potato fries, mac & cheese, crispy tots, potato salad, and chips. And yes, you will use lots of napkins. All this deliciousness will cost you approximately $13-20 per burger – and well worth it!
Vegetarian? Or looking for an other alternative? Well, they got that too! Choose a bean patty or maybe a pan-roasted turkey?
So remember to come hungry…because you’re going to need it. Located in the Elements building in Bellevue off 112th – Open 11-11 daily. Deck seating. To follow the restaurant name, there are a variety of lunch boxes adorning a wall or two (a wish of mine would be to find a Welcome Back Kotter lunchbox). Check out the About Us page on their website for more interesting info and facts. And how about seeing what these delicious concoctions look like? View the Photos page. Mmm Mmm!
