 Longtime Priest Lakers know that when you see the Burger Express, you're getting close to the relaxed Priest Lake lifestyle we all love and enjoy. Make the most of your time by stopping in at the "Burger" and picking up one of our cold Huckleberry Shakes along with a burger or sandwich that is made 100% hot and fresh. Make it a Laura's Cruise Burger or maybe an order of Pacific Cod, hand breaded and hand cut each day. Quick, easy and puts everyone in the right frame of mind. That's the Burger Express!
