    The little red cooler on the tail gate of my Pickmeup truck. The one with the bologna and yellow mustard on dark rye bread sammishes and the snickers bars and apple. Oh yeah, a cold soft drink also.

    I have eaten there but it was several years ago. Good burgers. Nothing really special about them other then they were fresh made, good ingredients all around. Place could have changed hands since I was there last.

    I like the old burger dive bar in Fall City. Can't remember the name, but it's right where Rte 202 turns 90 degrees to cross the river.

    To be fair - The two times I ate at Birdsview I was coming out of the woods after after long hikes through the North Cascades. 5 or 6 days of freeze dried and I'm beyond ready for some real food. Still - pretty good burgers and onion rings.

    Evan, actually it's a few feet from there: Last Frontier Saloon (so western sounding).

    We will often stop at the Snakepit on the CDA river. The buffalo burgers with steak fries then a scoop of huckleberry ice cream does just fine.

    For the Skykomish crew . . . those funky old school buses in front of the Reptile Zoo between Sultan and Monroe actually have some of the best BBQ I've found in the state. A couple from Texas operate the joint (can't even remember the name) and it's worth a stop on the way home. Or the taco wagon directly across from the Monroe prison on main street - great tacos and burritos.

    Why not eat on the river? Like fried oysters and corn. :)

    Yeah, they are one of only two decent BBQ places I have found in this part of the world. I'm still partial to what comes out of my own smoker, but they do a damn fine job.

    On my way home from the Chehalis tribs/Grays harbor tribs, I like to stop by the BBQ place on the hwy west of Olympia. They're also doing it right.

    I don't eat out often following fishing but I've eaten a few times at Rhodies Smokin' BBQ at Exit 34 in North Bend since I spend most of my time on the South Fork. But I know they've moved to Preston since I last ate there when the gas station they were collocated with closed. The other places I've gone occasionally too are the Issaquah Brewhouse and the Snoqualmie Brewery

    RIP Rhodie's at exit 34! The Popeye's there at Truck Town now provides a small amount of solace.
    North Bend Bar and Grill is good.

    Oh the other place I was recently after four days of camping with the family and a tiny amount of fishing was the Mazama Store. I had one of their sandwiches on a fresh baked roll with a local beer on tap. Got there just as the Germany-Brazil Trashing started. :)

    Can't beat Prime Rib at the Calder Store on the St. Joe on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Growing up in Montesano I've been there quite a few times. My mom still lives there so I will often stop in there when driving by. Really well done.

    I haven't ate there since it changed to a BBQ place. Usually by time I get to that point I just want to get home. LOL. I may have to try it one of these days.
