Big Cheeseburger

Norma's Burgers [former owners of the Big Cheeseburger] closed last August. A new business debuted there in February named Smokehouse BBQ. They painted the burger black. Burger Noir!

Giant Cheeseburger, Norma's Burgers

A giant cheeseburger sits on the roof of Norma's Burgers. Also their "Duke" cheeseburger was voted best in Washington (double-meat and cheese plus ham, bacon, pineapple, etc.). And Norma is a guy!

June 2017: This photo is of the old location; the burger moved east 3 miles to a Norma's just off I-5.
