The farmhouse patty at Blazing Onion is made with brown rice, cheese and roasted veggies.
I recently reviewed veggie burgers around the South Sound and Blazing Onion made my list for its farmhouse patty, made with brown rice, cheese and roasted veggies. The restaurant uses Painted Hills beef in its burgers. Soon, there will be a Tacoma outpost.

The Northwest-born burger chain Blazing Onion is looking to Tacoma for its next outpost. Blazing Onion CEO and co-founder David Jones mentioned a Tacoma location in tweets last week. He confirmed via tweet to News Tribune managing editor Dale Phelps, “Waiting for lease to arrive signed & executed and we’ll announce the location. They broke ground last week.” Jones also tweeted today he hopes to give News Tribune readers details in two weeks. The restaurant company already has an outpost in Gig Harbor, but this will be the first South Sound location on the other side of the Narrows bridge.

Also in Gig Harbor burger news, Travis Hightower is hoping to soon reopen his Gourmet Burger Shop. Read here for more details. Also on the way to Gig Harbor is Seattle-based restaurant Lunchbox Laboratory, which will open near Blazing Onion’s in Uptown Gig Harbor.
