  • Saranac Public House

    21 W. Main Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-473-9455

    This is the type of restaurant that does it all, and does it well. Need to place for a quiet lunch? Done. Excellent happy hour? They've got it. A place to start a raucous night of partying? Covered. Their thoughtful vegetarian and gluten-free dishes are clearly marked on the menu. But their buffalo chicken sandwich is killer, as is their beer selection. And there’s nothing wrong with staying there all night, if that’s your scene. Sunday is all-day happy hour, so most drinks are $5 or under, and it’s a comfortable spot for drinks with friends or a beer before a movie at the neighboring Magic Lantern Theater. (July 2013)

  • Scratch

    1007 W. First Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-456-5656

    Scratch originated in downtown Spokane with a full bar, a larger menu and location, and the connected Rain Lounge bar, compared with its sister restaurant of the same name in Coeur d’Alene. The chic vibe of Scratch Spokane and its convenient location near several performance venues makes it an ideal stopover before or after an event.
  • The Screaming Yak

    118 W. Francis Ave. Spokane - North

    509-464-3641

    With wings so hot they could make a yak scream, this North Side staple is a straightforward sports bar, with TVs, pool, videogames and pull tabs. Try the Screamin’ Demon wings, but only if you dare. You need to sign a waiver before you attempt to consume these bad boys. If you can’t take the heat, try the sliders or their decidedly upscale burgers. (July 2013)

  • Spike's Phillys & More

    718 E. Francis Ave. Spokane - North

    509-489-3647

    Tucked away in north Spokane is a place that can give you one of the more authentic cheesesteaks in the region. Spike’s Phillys and More, which opened in early 2011, serves a total of nine beef Philly options (and another seven chicken choices), all of them served on Amoroso rolls, made in Philadelphia. Spike’s beef features traditional cheesesteak seasonings and oils and, perhaps most notably, they offer most of these sandwiches with Cheez Whiz, the quintessential cheesesteak ingredient. Of course, you can also substitute provolone. (May 2012)

  • The Surf Shack

    356 E. Appleway Ave. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-669-6966

    The burgers at The Surf Shack are made Southern Californian-style, with crisp lettuce, a thick slice of tomato and Thousand Island dressing slathered on the bun. The goal of owner Gary Kender, a surfer originally from Long Beach, Calif., is to serve up wholesome burgers with a '50s surf culture theme. No high-fructose corn syrup here — just sauces made in house like the huckleberry ketchup and "love sauce." (Nov. 2013)

  • Sweet Lou's

    477272 U.S. 95, Ponderay Rural Idaho

    208-263-1381

    Chad and Maggie Foust now own two outposts in North Idaho: the Sweet Lou's in Hope and this new location in Ponderay. Emphasizing family recipes, they churn out house-made items like it’s nobody’s business, including hand battered onion rings and daily soups. Their ribs are smoked St. Louis-style, but you can choose from one of three homemade sauces: the house, bourbon or chocolate. Their popular bison ribs would make even the likes of Fred Flintstone jealous, they say. (Nov. 2012)
