Spokane, WA

I don't have any idea why anyone would visit this town, but I've lived here all my life and so I figured I'd share the good places to eat.

There are a ridiculous number of Oriental restaraunts here, so I'll share the three that not only pass health inspections, but are good:

Cathay Inn
3714 N Division St
Large portions and a large menu.

Peking North
4120 N Division St
The best quality chinese in Spokane.

Kim Do Restaraunt
2018 N Hamilton St
A Vietnamese restaraunt.

Goodtymes Bar & Grill
9214 E Mission Ave - Just off exit 287
Simply excellent American food. Minors are allowed in before 8 PM. There is also stand up comedy at 9 PM on Sundays.

Catacombs Pub
110 S Monroe St
This place is almost literally a hole in the wall. There is a small door that goes to it on the street. Look for the Montvale. This place has excellent calazones and pizza, and has a lot of German foods. Minors are allowed in.

Tomato Street
6220 N Division St
An Italian restaraunt so good and so popular it's always packed. Try to get in at odd hours or call ahead to see what the wait is.

Rancho Chico
2023 W Northwest Blvd -OR- 9205 N Division St
Awesome Mexican food. Inexpensive & large portions. Food comes out so fast you barely have time to chat.

Flamin' Joe's
11618 E Sprague Ave
An awesome american place with ribs, wings, and burgers.

The following are the chain restaraunts that are good and in town:

Anthony's
510 N Lincoln St
A relatively expensive seafood restaraunt with a beautiful view of the Spokane river and the waterfall.

The Old Spaghetti Factory
152 S Monroe

The Onion
302 W Riverside Ave -OR- 7522 N Division St

Outback Steakhouse
5628 N. Division St., Suite B-6 -OR- 14746 E Indiana Ave

Cyrus O'leary's
516 West Main

ColdStone Creamery
9502 N Newport Hwy -OR- 3011 E 29th Ave
You must get ice cream here at least once.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
15401 E Indiana Ave
You know, donuts.

It sports a pretty cool view of the Spokane River, but be warned that it's not a cheap place to eat. The service is awesome but the food isn't exactly a testament to the cost - the food is still good though!

Steam Plant Grill 159 S. Lincoln, Spokane, WA
Another cool dining experience. Built inside a historic landmark - a steam plant, who would've guessed??? - there's brick wall and black iron girders with subtle lighting. The food is tasty and the service is usually good. The food isn't cheap, but about standard.

Krispy Kreme.

There's an Old European there, best breakfast place ever. The abelskivers are amazing.

I went to some little Italian place there last month, unfortunately I don't recall the name or where it was. I do remember I got a picture of Alaskan Amber Ale for only $8 (and they wanted $3.25 for a glass)

I don't know about the one down in Pullman, but up in Spokane I get tired of the staff made up of nothing but 16 year olds who wont stop asking if I want coffee every 3 minutes and spend 5 minutes at the register ringing up my order.

Yeah I've never been to the Spokane one but the Pulman one is great. On the weekends everyone coming in there is hungover. All the sorostitues are just wearing sweatss, or whatever outfit they partied in the night before. And the staff is made up mostly of college students who've been working there a few years at least. Plus we know the guy at the front so we always get seated first

'sup northwesterner! The Onion ftw, I love that place.

Sushi wise, there's nothing in Spokane.

If any of you guys are in Pullman/Spokane after the 15th of Jan, we should hang out.

It's not that bad. I like it better than where I am now (Pullman). At least there's good food in Spokane.

We've got a full bar at our place, so we can probably handle having everyone meet here. I don't think there's more then a half dozen people here in Pullman.
