The Tav in Ellensburg is great, and I eat/drink there often. The brick courtyard in back is a gem. It's not the best burger in Ellensburg though. That would be the student run restaurant at CWU. It's called Wellington's. As far as I know it's the only place in Eburg that makes a hand formed patty. The ambiance is bad, but the burgers are huge and delicious.

Thanks on the tip for Wellington's....I will sacrifice ambiance for better food most of the time! Although sometimes I want to wash it down with a local brew! ;)

Nice to see you made it out to my
neck of the woods.

Hard to go wrong at Big Bubba's! Another obligatory stop on the peninsula is Fat Smitty's at the Jct of 101 and SR 20. Great food and fun to check out the walls and ceiling.
Perfect ends to end a day of chasin sea runs,,,or silvers...or....

Know Big Bubbas well, we have family place on Mason Lake and it is on our route. Liked the Crow's Nest while it was there, but don't try driving and eating a chili dog on that highway.

A lot of good salt and fresh stuff in the area.

Fat Smitty's has changed a bit - last time I went through, remodel, and I think they took down all the wall "decorations".

I know what you mean. A hungry mother burger and iron horse brew in the brick courtyard is hard to beat.

And for those folks who like to fish Titlow in Tacoma for cutts and rezzies, don't hesitate to walk across the road from the parking area and grab a meal at The Beach Tavern. Great burgers and I absolutely love the chicken "drumettes"! Highly recommended!

If you are down in Grays Harbor fishing the Wynoochee or the Satsop, I highly recommend taking the 25 minute roundtrip side venture out to Clark's on highway 101. Great burgers and fries, and the best milkshakes you'll find (blackberry and pumpkin are favorites)

If you're fishing the salt near Allyn on Case Inlet, you can't go wrong with a burger and rings from Big Bubba's.

Yo, I've driven by that place hundreds of times. Littorally! I'll have to stop in next time!

If your are clamming in Grayland, a good burger can be had at the Local Bar and Grill (formerly the "Local Tavern"). Just order the "deluxe cheesburger." The "Local Burger" is rumored to be too huge for a normal person to consume in one sitting. I have believed the rumors, and never ordered one.

However, I usually opt for the cuisine at Bennet's. (Rated # 1 on the Harbor). Last time I checked, the waitresses were better looking in there, too.:D
