B's crab cake po'boy.

The Dirty Dan at Wallyburger

Menu items at Wallingford’s new retro-western burger joint have names like Chili Nelson and Folsom Prison Bleu; the decor and soundtrack follow suit. But owner Gary Reynolds (the guy behind Revolver Bar) also appreciates a good SpongeBob reference: The Dirty Dan is a fiery-tart roar of fried jalapeños, torrential queso, and spicy lemon sauce, all within a traditional sesame bun cheeseburger. —Allecia Vermillion

Crab Cake Po’boy at B’s Po Boy

While West Seattle’s awning-adorned newcomer still has the bones of the Fatburger that preceded it (and the same optimal views of Alki Beach), the po’boy sandwiches therein are fashioned New Orleans style: on baguettes shipped in from Louisiana’s Leidenheimer Baking Company, traditionally dressed with shredded iceberg, tomatoes, pickles, and mayo, and stuffed with fillings like lump crabmeat with red peppers. Sides be hearty—like fries laden with chicken andouille sausage gumbo.  —Rosin Saez

Grilled Pork Banh Mi at Lan Huê

An uncle with decades of baguette-baking experience in Saigon. A nephew who makes everything from spicy aioli to ground-lemongrass beef in house. Grilled pork, big on flavor, with crunchy matchsticks of carrot, cucumber, and daikon inside a soft baguette with a shatter-ready crust. There are so many reasons to love this trim new sandwich shop on Jackson. Here’s another… sandwiches are just $4. —AV

The Seoul at Cheese Meats Bread

Amid the Chinatown–International District’s Uwajimaya food court offerings, this corner spot sounds like kids’ menu fodder, but Kevin Chung, who also owns 8oz. Burger and Company, knows how to embellish the classic grilled cheese sandwich. Take the Seoul, a blend of Beecher’s white cheddar, buffalo mozzarella, and fontina melded with kimchi and slices of rich pork belly. Even better—a counter full of hot sauces await. —RS
