Local Burger, located on Main Street, is set to close this Saturday. The premium burger joint opened in July 2014 by the same ownership group as Local 360, located in Belltown.

The menu included organic burgers, appetizers, salads, desserts and cocktails. According to a representative at Local Burger, it was a management decision to close the restaurant this week.

What new restaurant do you want to see come to Main Street?


  1. I want Local Burger to stay 🙁

  2. Also can we get more info here…? Why is it closing? Why so sudden?

  3. Oh maybe another nail salon. There just aren’t enough!!

  4. high wages will do that.

  5. Nail Salon? Really? What we really need on main street is another Jewelery store! ?

  6. Sorry to see Local Butger go. Our family will continue to dine at Local 360.
    I wouldn’t mind having a Tipsy Cow in Bellevue.

  7. They have literally the worst service… sadly I am not surprised at all. I would love a Mexican spot or thai

  8. French Vietnamese

  9. I agree with Jefrus. Local Burger was a disappointment from day 1. I have tried it on at least five occasions – brunch, at the bar, with family, date night, alone – and never felt satisfied. Uncaring service and middling food are not ingredients for restaurant success. Other neighborhood restaurants thrive. Another burger place would be great to see.

  10. How about a parking lot so we can get to the rest of the Main Street restaurants without walking a mile?

  11. Would love to see another vegan restaurant on Main.

  12. Vegan would be great if we needed another failure… go with what works. An adult only Cactus… Bai Tong… sports bar but 520 would be competition but something like the pump house would get my business

  13. I always thought that local burger was not designed to take advantage of Main St’s unique atmosphere. Main St is a great place to people watch, mingle and meet with friends/neighbors. Hard to tell why they closed or if any business could make it in such a small.. bar oriented area with high operating costs. I hope a new well designed concept can be added to enhance Main St.

  14. Bummer! I really liked the food and people. I assume this was a simple business decision to close? Anyone have any insight?

  15. Gonna miss this place a lot. Best burger I’ve had since I moved here from the midwest and wasn’t pretentious like so many other places in Bellevue.

  16. Oh, how sad. What a great place it was! Now we will get another jewelry store.

  17. This doesn’t surprise me, we tried many times and were always disappointed. Local Burger and Local360 parted ways some time ago from what I was told. Local360 in Belltown is excellent. Would love to see a casual tavern or a bbq joint.

  18. I would favor a nice Mexican restaurant like the one in Southcenter mall or Upscale Thai like Noi
    Steak house like the old Keg

  19. Won’t forget the time we noticed the buns (bread) on the rack behind the counter were moldy. Ugh…they told us they would pull them and that those buns were used for a sandwich that was seldom ordered. But still!!

  20. Bummer! I loved the low-key atmosphere and the badass burgers… how about a dive bar!?

  21. I would love to see a specialty place like Melt Shop (https://www.meltshop.com/) or a Mac&Cheese place!

  22. Please open local burger again. We loved their food and ambience. Its unfair for such an awesome place to close

  23. Rumor from McKee resdients is that employees were running illegal business out of LB. Cannot verify veracity.
