10 Famous Restaurants In Washington That Are So Worth Waiting In Line For
No one likes to wait in line when they’re hungry, but sometimes the meal at the end of the wait is well worth it. The restaurants on this list are either known statewide or well-loved spots in their cities. And while it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll have to wait for a table, you’ll be glad you did.
1. Easy Street Records and Cafe, 4559 California Ave. SW, Seattle
This classic record store in West Seattle is known for their mouthwatering breakfast and brunch. The cafe is small, but charming, and there's almost always a wait for seating -- but once there's a plate of food before you, you'll understand the hype.
2. Clinkerdagger, 621 W Mallon Ave., Ste 404, Spokane
You can make a reservation for dinner at Clinkerdagger, and even if you don't, there isn't always a wait... but if you show up spontaneously and there's a line at the door, stick around for one of the best dining experiences in the city.
3. Yakima Steak Company, 221 W Yakima Ave., Yakima
Yakima's newest steakhouse is already a popular place, so you may want to make a reservation, especially on a weekend. With an elegant but laid back ambiance, delicious food and friendly service, it's no wonder people love it.
4. Beaches Restaurant & Bar, 1919 SE Columbia River Dr., Vancouver
The best time to enjoy Beaches is obviously in the summer, and that's when you'll find the longest waits for patio dining. But as you can see, the waits are worth it.
5. Bizarro Italian Cafe, 1307 N. 46th St., Seattle
Once featured on Diner, Drive-Ins and Dives, this eccentric restaurant serves some of the best Italian food in the city. They also don't take reservations (ever), so prepare to wait awhile to enjoy it.
6. Southern Kitchen, 1716 6th Ave., Tacoma
Southern Kitchen is another spot made famous by the Food Network. Everything is made from scratch, and it's amazing -- and needless to say, it gets pretty crowded.
7. Hart’s Mesa, 903 Rogers St. NW, Olympia
Unless you live in Olympia, you've probably never heard of Hart's Mesa... but those who do know that there's usually a wait for these epic Tex-Mex breakfasts.
8. Frank’s Diner, 1516 W 2nd Ave., Spokane
While it's true that Frank's sees some pretty insane wait times on the weekends, the end result is a hearty breakfast inside an old train car.
9. Andreas Keller,
829 Front St., Leavenworth
Andreas Keller serves authentic German food in a beautiful setting in a Bavarian village... so, naturally, it remains perpetually packed. The dining experience is worth the wait.
10. Silverwater Cafe, 237 Taylor St., Port Townsend
There may be a bit of a wait to enjoy a meal at this Port Townsend gem, but that's probably because everyone stays for dessert (or at least they should).
While these restaurants are definitely worth the wait, the fact is, sometimes you just done have time. And that’s when you should head to one of our
charming neighborhood gems.
