    Taco Wagons: In Burlington, next to the McDonald's just before you climb onto I-5 south; In Monroe, across from the Ace Hardware coming out of Reformatory; across from All About The Fly coming off the Sky; In Ellensburg, in town, near the KFC coming off the Yakima.

    Fill your stomach and get gas all at the same time.

    These days its a ziplock of hippie mix (trail mix), perferably with dried fruit and chocolate, and a ziplock of the jerky made from the deer I arrowed this year. And yes the hotcase is usually on the menu at some point.

    I haven't seen a taco wagon in Fall City. I hit up the burger joint every once in a while, but their fries are bunk. Good to know about those stands in Burlington and Monroe. There's also a good sit down Mexican joint just down the street from AATF. Also, Diehard and his pops introduced me to a great BBQ spot in Burlington called Double Barrel BBQ; right on the side of the road in Burlington, can't miss it to/from the Skagit.

    Back to the gas station. I fall victim to the "fresh" sandwiches in the cold case when there is no hot case. These are even worse than the things in the hot case.

    Leland, you spilled the beans (pun alert! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: ) on that bit of gold! A lot of those taco wagons deliver some serious grinds. I've been to the one in Ellensburg, and it is very good. Don't forget who are cooking on the inside of those coaches. You're getting the real deal!

    That aside, for me, Hotcase = Cringe! If I look, it's out of morbid curiousity.

    Used to fish the HELL outta the snocrummy, so the mandatory stop was at "Small Fryes"...that place still around? That used to be the "11am bite"

    On trips north of town, the Arlington AM/PM was the first stop...south was the AM/PM past Tacoma, before oly...

    The cheeseburger, aka the Puck or a MurdaBurga, was De Rigeur for early anadromous denizen missions. 2 of those Bad Larrys, with as many condiments and soggy pickles/onions that would fit back in the wrapper, and away for Aberdeen we would go.

    Now my weakness is chicken wings...not the sectioned and basted crap, but whole, deepfried wings. Along with the waterjug, a victory beer, and a half-gallon of gatorade, I pack 8-10 wings into the drysack for all-day boat-trips...but if I had an AM/PM around...

    There is a burger place there still and I am almost positive it is Small Fryes. Good burgers, horrible fries. I hit that up a bunch for dinner in the fall when fishing ended at 7:30PM. Damn I miss that.

    Standard trip consists of the bagel/croissant mystery egg sandwich. It amazes me how perfectly round the egg substance is… Next followed up by a tall boy of Rockstar, Pimp Juice etc. When you pee phosphorous green after the energy drink don't be alarmed! It wasn't the food but the energy drink itself. To ensure that the entire day will be free of gut twisting interruptions next insert a pinch o Grizzly or Husky (8 or 9 bucks is too expensive for a can).

    Once purged on the road again :thumb:
     
  11. :beathead: I also have fallen victim to the place in Fall City across from the gas station, it's a red and white stripped building. There motto is "we specialize in salt, grease and fat." I think that's correct??? I stopped in there one day and got a burger, fries, a diet coke and a shake. It was a long ride home!

    The chemical reaction that occurs when urinating what looks like perfectly good Rockstar back into the watershed not only attracts steelhead to your fly but ladies as well. Also a benefit of the mystery meat/eggs is that you know after eating it in the morning that by afternoon your pipes will be be clogged and you will not have to worry about dropping that duece in the bushes. Sorry for the visual.

    I always keep one of these in the garage for early mornings road trips, its cheaper than antifreeze and a great mixer with Jeagermeister.

    I really like the mac and cheese out of the hot case. There's just sonething about it. Chicken strips and Jalepeno poppers are always tasty. And a breakfast sandwich from the hotcase is a great way to start the day. I used to really like the hot-case burritos for some reason, too. Crucnchy on the outside and beany in the middle. That was until I had a run in with a BBQ burrito. I don't know who invented it but they should be shot. Maybe it was the shock of sweet when I was expecting savory, but, It was one of the most horrid things Ive ever had.
