  • Craft & Gather

    4403 S. Dishman-Mica Rd. Spokane Valley

    509-795-1825

    Owned by two restaurant industry vets, Craft & Gather offers classic pub burgers and handhelds, including a lamb burger, fancy grilled cheese, and fried chicken sandwich. Executive Chef Steve Jensen, who has previously worked stints at several other well-known local eateries, regularly creates fresh sheet items using seasonal ingredients that are regularly advertised on the restaurant's Facebook page. A patio installed not long after Craft & Gather's spring 2017 opening offers a relaxing spot to enjoy a meal and drinks, as the restaurant overlooks a green on the former Painted Hills Golf Course. Bordered by a small stream and shaded by the nearby hills, Craft & Gather's location makes you feel much farther from the city core than you really are. (CHEY SCOTT)

  • Dick's Hamburgers

    10 E. Third Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-2481

    What would Spokane be without Dick’s Hamburgers? Our city would be lost, with only chain hamburger places remaining for fast-food junkies, off-the-wagon vegetarians and the bar crowds. But thankfully Dick’s low prices, as well as their comforting food, have kept people coming back to this drive-in since 1965. The menu is varied, but the items are simple. You won’t find anything too complicated on the hamburger — no bacon or ham, just condiments, pickles and cheese if you ask for it. Buy these guilty pleasures by the bagful and remember Dick’s is sticking with their old-school, cash-only approach. (July 2013)

  • Dickey's Barbecue Pit

    12628 N. Division St. Spokane - North

    509-465-9999

    Eastern Washington's first location of this Texas-style chain sports an Old West theme, with wagon wheel chandeliers, vintage posters and black-and-white photos of Travis Dickey opening the restaurant’s first location in Dallas in 1941. The food is quick-casual, and customers pick what they want on their tray as they mosey down the line. Chopped beef brisket, southern pulled pork, spicy cheddar sausage and Virginia-style ham make up some of the nine different meats on the menu. Then there are 12 sides to choose from, including coleslaw, potato salad, mac and cheese and fried onion tanglers. Sandwiches, potatoes (“bakers”) and salads add to the barbecue fare, and for dessert, free soft serve ice cream, every day all the time. (Feb. 2013)

  • The District Bar

    916 W. First Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-244-3279

    The District Bar takes traditional bar food in a new direction, with influences from Executive Chef Gary Evans’ love for Southern cooking and appreciation for local favorites. Think “beef patties smothered in BBQ and bacon, paired with Walla Walla onions.” Think “apple cider and brown sugar pork chops.” Think “beer braised short ribs with horseradish and truffle oil.” The bar also features 42 different beer selections. That might be daunting at first, but you can bite into the tap list by ordering a beer flight ($6) with your choice of five three-ounce draft beers. (Feb. 2013)

  • Domini Sandwiches

    703 W. Sprague Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-2324

    The sandwiches are huge and untainted by anything remotely green or grown from soil. Ham, corned beef, salami, liverwurst and turkey are all sold by the sandwich, the basket and even the pound. Hot mustard, sweet mustard, horseradish, popcorn, RC Cola. Does it get any better? Service is quick, but these behemoths are built to last. They are also the foundation of a food dynasty, winning their 19th Best Sandwich Shop award in the Inlander’s annual Best Of readers poll. (July 2013)

    703 Hwy. 2 Sandpoint

    208-263-4300

    A slice of Americana, this rustic burger joint has all the fast-food goodies, with burgers, fries, fish, ice cream and huckleberry milkshakes made with real fruit.

  • Eat Good Cafe

    2100 N. Molter Rd. Liberty Lake

    509-210-0880

    Located in a commercial area of Liberty Lake, this cafeteria-style restaurant is dedicated to offering fresh, local and healthy ingredients in all their items. Serving just breakfast and lunch, they serve a wide array of foods: egg sandwiches, pizza slices, wraps, burgers and more. Eat Good’s atmosphere is utilitarian. The hours are a bit odd. But they provide office workers and retail employees options beyond food courts and the restaurants on Third Avenue. (July 2013)

  • The Elk Public House

    1931 W. Pacific Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-363-1973

    While many restaurants and bars toss the words “pub” or “public house” after their names, The Elk lives up to the spirit of the pub by serving as much as a gathering point for the Browne’s Addition neighborhood as it is an eatery. That’s not to say the food isn’t special, because it certainly is. The menu includes sandwiches, burgers and salads, but if you’ve ever tasted The Elk’s marinated pork soft tacos, that will likely become your go-to menu item. (July 2013)

  • EPIC

    100 N. Hayford Rd. Airway Heights

    509-242-7000

    In June 2013, Northern Quest’s sports bar, the Q, was gutted, rebooted and injected with a big dose of — you guessed it — epicness. The massive 10-by-30-foot TV still stretches over the top of the bar, but everything else is new — from the bar back to cushy chairs to a couple of 12-person booths and a dark, woody color scheme.

  • Fiesta Mexicana

    1227 S. Grand Blvd. Spokane - South

    509-455-7117

    Family owned and family friendly, Fiesta Mexicana is frequently packed, but don’t let the parking lot scare you off. You never wait long here. Service is fast and attentive and the food is everything you’d expect from inland Tex-Mex, but with better-than-expected offerings of fish and vegetarian options. If you want to eat dinner amid a hive of activity with bottomless chips and salsa, this is your joint. (July 2013)

  • Fireside Grille

    1095 SE Bishop Blvd. Moscow/Pullman

    509-334-3663

    Fireside reminds us exactly of what would result if a sports bar and mountain lodge had a love child. So if you happen to enjoy watching your favorite team by the fireplace, then you have found your cozy oasis. The dynamic menu and location next to Pullman’s cinema makes the Fireside ideal for the classic “dinner and a movie” night.
  • Floating Patio

    34128 N. Lakeside Ave., Bayview Rural Idaho

    208-902-3321

    At the Floating Patio, you never have to leave the water. As the name implies, the restaurant floats, providing views of Lake Pend Oreille as you sway to the gentle wake of incoming boats along Bayview's waterfront. Go for the patio or duck inside to watch the sunset, catch a game on television or hunker down with a burger — they use seasoned, grass-fed beef — and expertly crispy fries. (August 2016)

  • Fountain Cafe

    610 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. Spokane - Downtown

    509-625-6656

    The all-outdoor-seating cafe is located in Riverfront Park just a few dozen feet from the Rotary Fountain, but its menu goes beyond the regular concession-stand fare. You can get a burger or grilled cheese sandwich, or turkey dogs for the kids, but the menu also includes appetizers like flatbread with sun-dried tomato and feta ($6.95) or a hummus platter with grilled pita, kalamata olives and cucumber. Entrées are served with chips, fries or salad and include Cajun Andouille Sausage ($6.95) and four shrimp tacos with Cusabi dressing ($8.95). Pair your meal with a beer or a glass of wine. The cafe is open from spring into the fall, as weather permits. (July 2013)

  • Frank's Diner

    1516 W. Second Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-8798

    Regular winner of the Inlander‘s Best Of readers poll for diners, Frank’s Diner — from the owner of The Onion — is famous for their breakfast, of course. Silver-dollar-size hotcakes. Spicy Creole benedict. Classic oatmeal. But the Diner’s dinner options are just as good. Try the meatloaf. There are our two locations, but our favorite is the train-car style location on Second, near Browne’s Addition.

  • Frankie Doodle's

    30 E. Third Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-9267

    There’s no explaining the life-sized fiberglass albino deer in the front window. (We asked.) Choose a booth, a table, or sit at the long counter — there’s a reason this downtown eatery has been going strong for 35 years; the hours are long, the food is simple tasty fare, and the prices are right for any budget.
