Walla Walla Golden Rings

Sweet Onions Sourced From Family Farms

Here at Burgerville, our Walla Walla Onion Rings might as well be gold– and we aren’t just saying that because they are fried to golden perfection.

We source these sweet onions from the fertile soils of the Walla Walla valley, where family farms like Locati Farms tend the land year-round to produce our favorite summer treat.

Although an icon of Washington State, Walla Walla onions originally were brought to the PNW by a French soldier in 1900 and were first farmed by an Italian immigrant named Joe Locati. For 4 generations, the Locati family has hand-selected the biggest, sweetest, and roundest onions to carry on the lineage.

The result? The perfect onion (in our own humble opinion).

Like how sparkling wine can only be called “Champagne” if it hails from the region in France, the Walla Walla’s name is exclusive to the valley at the base of the Blue Mountains. The valley’s snowy winters and oh so sweet summers contribute to the terroir of these incredible heirloom onions.

Plus, the joy of sourcing local produce means that beautiful Walla Walla onions arrive in the restaurants just days after being pulled from the fields!

From the farms to the fryers, Walla Walla onion rings are a labor of love. In the hands of our awesome Burgerville crews, the onion rings are battered, breaded, and fried, every single day.

The Walla Walla season is ending soon, so get ‘em while they’re hot and crunch down on some onion rings to support local family farms of the Pacific Northwest!
