We’re not sure it’s a secret anymore, but for those not yet in the know—Georgetown is too cool for school. Located in what was (and still is) an industrial area just west of I-5 and the train tracks, just south of downtown and just north of Boeing Field, the hip, bohemian, just slightly grungy-in-a-good-way neighborhood of Georgetown offers more than antique stores, crumbling brick buildings and hipsters sipping cappuccinos; it’s also home to some seriously satisfying grub! Click through for our round-up of the best eats this happening little ‘hood has to offer.

Anything But Fast Food

Katsu Burger
So…we know what katsu is (Japanese breaded, deep fried cutlets of meat), and we know what a burger is, but what are the two together? Delicious, that’s what they are! Located just west of the main Georgetown area, Katsu Burger is a cheery little restaurant started by well-known Seattle sushi chef Hajime Sato, also owner of Mashiko Sushi in West Seattle. Antibiotic-free beef, pork, chicken and organic tofu are your options, breaded in panko bread crumbs and served with toppings like Japanese mayo, cabbage, tomatoes, red onion and pickles on a locally baked bun. Do you want fries with that? You better, because with options like sea salt, nori or curry, you’d be crazy not to try some taters.

Chew on this: For newbies to the Katsu Burger phenom, try the Tokyo Classic to get your first taste of the creative combo of Japanese-American deliciousness, and for the adventurer, the Ohayou Gozaimasu (“good morning” in Japanese), combines a katsu beef patty with cheddar, egg and bacon. The burgers may be too big for your little’s mouth, but they’ll love the Banzai Bites (Japanese-style chicken or pork nuggets), and the cool desserts and hand dipped milkshakes will top off what’s sure to be an excellent meal.

Matt’s Famous Hot Dogs
In the same tiny, iconic Georgetown location for over 20 years (directly across from Katsu Burger), Matt’s Famous gives hot dogs (and burgers) a good name. The hot dogs are made from Matt Jones’ 100% pure beef recipe, and there are styles that will impress Chicagoans, New Yawkers and Southerners in equal measure. Not into dogs? Try his equally good burgers (100% beef) and Italian style sandwiches on French rolls. You kiddo won’t leave this place without a smile on her face.

Chew on this: Try the Matt’s Classic Chicago Dog, replete with mustard, white onion, sweet relish, tomatoes, hot pepper, celery salt and a whole dill pickle spear nestled next to the dog. We don’t know why, but the celery salt just makes the whole thing come together. He doesn’t forget the kiddos either, offering a Kid Dog (a smaller hot dog with less toppings), and his plain burger goes for only $1.99. Ka-ching!
