Get it while you can – Get ther while you can, The Little Holland Drive inn is closing it's doors on July 25th and the building is being demolished. We eat there maybe every couple of weeks and love there burgers. We call in our order and it's ready when I get there. If they are very busy they take the phone off the hood. They will be open July 16th, 17th, 18th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th then they close possibly for good. They are talking about maybe re-opening somewhere in a year or so. Sure hope they do. I'm really gonna miss them!!
Im not a burger person but I LOVE this place! – SOOO good and soo worth waiting (even in the winter.) I dont eat much beef or necessarily enjoy eating hamburgers. But I always see this place packed so I thought I would give it a try...AWESOME!!!
Pretty Darned Good Burger – Finally made it to the Little Holland on one of the days they were open. Ordered the Big Mike with an order of fries. The burger was outstanding and the fries were some of the best I've ever had. The burger was nice and juicy with swiss cheese, canadian bacon, and just enough lettuce, onion, tomato and special sauce to make it memorable. The fries were hot and fresh and cooked a little more on the brown side...just the way I love them! An order of fries is advertised as "about a 1/2 pound" and they weren't kidding. I can eat a large meal and I could not finish what I ordered! Didn't try the custard or a fresh made shake, but that will be on the list for next time.
An update on the window states that the restaurant has been able to lease a pad at the new construction site, so hopefully the Little Holland will be around for a lot longer. I was impressed by the smiling faces, the friendly service, and the patience of everyone in line. The food is not fast as it is cooked to order but it certainly is fresh, tasty, and a great bargain for the money! I will definitely be back. Hours Wed - Sat 11-7. Menus are avail to take home for those who want to phone in an order in advance.
Best hamburgers in Tacoma! – I love Mikie Burger! the only bummer is that is only open Wednesday through Saturday. But it is a great place to eat! it is a lot faster if you call in your order and pick it up versus going and ordering there!
Best burger in the USA? Maybe, I have only visited 40 states. – A legend among Puget Sound area burgers. The little Mikie is one of the best burgers you will ever have the pleasure of eating. I've travelled all over and nothing comes close to it. As for local 'competition' there is none. Frisco Freeze is decent but nowhere near as good, and D1ck''s up in Seattle? Pfffft. (stupid word filter)
Pros: best greasy burger you could ever ask for. DO NOT ORDER A LARGE FRY, as the "small" still fills up half a lunch bag. Fries are big and greasy and delicious. Friendly awesome service from the ladies who run it. Shakes are great old fashioned style.
Cons: waiting outside in the cold for your food with the cooking smell driving you crazy. Traffic in the area is bad. The weird hours is kind of disappointing, but understandable: this is a family business. If they aren't working, they don't trust someone else to do it. Food is excellent as a result.
Better Hours For All – Why don't you have the same hours as all the burger joints around? From the reviews I've read, you rock so why limit your times?
Feel free to reply to my email address with an answer. Also, do you take debit?
The Mikey – Perhaps the hype made my expectations a bit high; however, I must say that this is an average burger. It's decent, and I might even frequent this place again. It's an okay burger, just like the majority of them out there.
User review by jenbaby9193 – Great burgers, fries, and even the cook rocks too! The food might take a while (when there is a line) but it is WELL worth the wait.
To DIE FOR BURGERS!!!!!! – OUTSTANDING, BURGERS,FRIES & MILKSHAKES, NOT fast food, but worth the wait, just follow the crowd of returning customers . I have traveled all thru the North west and NO ONE comes close to this burger stand, from Spokane, Yakima, & Seattle. Tacoma has a real winner in this one. Outside seating, always crowds of people that know good food!!! Highly Recommend!
Loved IT! – I never had such a fresh and BIG burger that tasted so good. It took a little longer to get our food but it was worth the wait. Loved the onion rings and my butterscotch shake. Will be back!!!!!
