In 2014, I set a goal of visiting every eating/drinking establishment in my neighborhood of Fremont, Seattle. Here are my reviews for the burger and pizza restaurants I visited. See more reviews.

**** One of my faves!
*** On my regular “go to” list
** I’d go if a friend wanted to
* No thanks

Blue Moon Burgers Fremont**** Blue Moon Burgers  My favorite burger place in the area. Hmm, maybe my favorite burger place overall! My fave is the blue cheese burger, but they have lots of interesting combinations on the menu and you can build your own. A big, fat, juicy burger…makes my mouth water to write this. They also have an outdoor area, which I love in summer. Beer,wine—it’s not a fast food place. (Downtown Fremont)
*** U Needa Burger  They’re just burgers, but really good burgers. I feel like I should branch out to other menu items, but I tend to keep falling back on the lamb burger and am always happy. Nice outdoor seating area, though the picnic table atmosphere is less inviting inside. (Upper Fremont)
**** Via Tribunali  This may be a strange recommendation for a pizza restaurant, but this place always brings back fond memories of Germany and the authentic Italian pizza place that I went to with friends from my German language school.This is delectable, thin crust, served whole (i.e. not cut in slices) Italian pizza. There’s nothing better than a good glass of wine, their salami pizza, and sitting at the counter/bar next to their open windows in the summer and watching life on Fremont Ave. (Upper Fremont)
**** Pagliacci Pizza  My fave pizza place for delivery. It’s fast, it’s really good pizza, and they have a standard pizza called “Extra pepperoni”—what’s not to love? (Stone Way)
** Tutta Bella  Pizza was good, but the wine choices weren’t all that exciting. Since I have other better pizza options closer to me, this place isn’t high on my list. (Stone Way)
** Alberona’s  It always looks empty (though there are only about three tables in there so it shouldn’t take much to fill up the place) and Yelp reviewers gave it very mixed/negative reviews. Since it seemed like more of a delivery place, I ordered pizza to be delivered. They were pretty prompt, the pizza was pretty good, and the crust was only the tiniest bit soggy from cooling off in the box on the way to my house (one of the biggest complaints on Yelp).It wasn’t so great that it would even come close to bumping my favorite pizza places out as my favorites, but I’d be willing to try them again.

Pizza Fremont* Kylie’s Pizza**CLOSED  I suppose my main problem with this place is that I’m a thin-crust-pizza sort of gal and this was Chicago-style deep dish. There was TOO MUCH bready crust. Really. Where’s the sauce? Where’s the cheese? And most important, where’s the pepperoni?On a positive note, their cheaper red wine was a lot tastier than their more expensive red wine. I always like drinking wine and saving money. (Downtown Fremont)
