  • 1898 Public House

    2010 Waikiki Rd. Spokane - North

    509-466-2121

    When the Kalispel Tribe bought the former Spokane Country Club, they tapped Executive Chef Tyler Schwenk (former of Beverly's at the Coeur d'Alene Resort) to create a menu that captured an upscale gastropub feel, but that was also family-friendly. The result is a widely varying menu featuring Schwenk's take on youthful foods and traditional classics alike, like the lobster corn dog appetizer, or the honey-stung fried chicken entrée. With sweeping views of the golf course below, a cozy bar and sizable patio that offers spectacular sunset views through the trees, 1898 is a place for both special occasions and post-golf refreshments. Daily happy hours from 4-6 pm offer downsized versions of many of Schwenk's regular menu mainstays, and Tuesday night hosts "Burgers and Brews," where diners can choose between two featured burgers that come with a 20-ounce pint of beer, all for the cool price of $15. Portions at 1898 are hearty, and with so many options, no matter your reason for stopping in, you'll find more than enough to sate your hunger and slake your thirst. (CHEY SCOTT)

  • Black Diamond

    509-891-8357

    The Black Diamond — or the Diamond, as the locals say — is a one-stop adult playground, filled to the brim with pool tables, live DJs, food specials and a clear view of two-dozen or so craft brews on tap. This, truly, is the place to go if you’re partying in the Valley. On a Friday night, the place is packed with folks looking to either play some pool or try out the latest regional brews. (July 2013)
  • Boomers Classic Rock Bar & Grill

    18219 E. Appleway Ave. Spokane Valley

    509-368-9847

    Two things about Boomers Classic Rock Bar & Grill that you need to forget: it’s in a shopping center strip mall surrounded by grassy, empty lots; its next-door neighbor is an unrelated dive bar by the name of the Cum Inn. Once you’ve forgotten this, you’re free to enjoy the kind of place where bands play classic rock every weekend and the burgers are juicy and full-textured. The best seller is the Frankenstein, a burger decked out in fried Spam, fried egg, deep-fried onion, chipotle brown gravy and (says the menu) an ambulance. The Patty Benatar, Mr. Mojo Rising and Sublime burger each come with their own signature extras. (April 2013)

  • Cougar Cottage

    509-332-1265

    Let the Coug’s good, cheap beer and burgers inspire you to recall the simple things, like ESPN and the sense of camaraderie that develops only through jukebox sing-alongs.The biggest changes since it opened 80 years ago are High-Def screens and the volume of wall graffiti. It is the absolute essence of all that a college bar is and should be. (July 2013)

  • Dean's Drive-In

    210 W. Broadway St., Reardan Rural Eastern WA

    509-796-3911

    This unassuming little place, tucked beneath the massive grain storage buildings in Reardan, is a great road-food find. The deluxe bacon cheeseburger layers hot sizzling meat, gooey melted cheese and just enough lettuce and tomato to help one feel virtuous. Top it off with a huckleberry shake — and say "hi" to the regulars in feed caps. (AC)
  • 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)

    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.

  • 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.

    100 N. Hayford Rd., Northern Quest Casino, Airway Heights Spokane - West

  • Ferguson's Cafe

    804 W. Garland Ave. Spokane - North

    509-328-1950

    Ferguson’s is not a café or restaurant — it’s a diner. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in tasty, heaping portions, and there’s nothing on the menu that you’ll struggle to pronounce. Old-fashioned and straightforward, Ferguson’s is a reminder of a simpler time. The milkshakes are made to order out of the original machine — installed in 1941 and, fittingly, the only appliance not destroyed in the devastating 2011 fire.
  • Ferraro's North

    3022 N. Division St. Spokane - North

    509-325-7443

    Although the Dewey's Burgers and Brews name is no more, Ferraro's still serves up a lot of the same dishes that made the pub a hot spot. You might come here for a few drinks, but you have to try the hot, juicy, double-meat, double-cheese burger that ranks right up there on the burger nirvana scale. You’ll find a handful of other burgers on the menu, including a spicy jalapeno burger and the ‘Shroomburger, topped with Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms. Pub grub doesn't describe the food Ferraro's makes. It's more like perfection. (September 2012)
  • Five Guys Burgers & Fries

    10 N. Sullivan Rd. Spokane Valley

    509-927-2840

    The Virginia-based hamburger franchise is an old-fashioned kind of burger joint, complete with red-and-white-checkered tiles and barstool seating. Bulk bins of peanuts are placed around the store, free for patrons to munch on. The franchise prides itself on fresh, custom-made hamburgers and hand-cut fries. The menu is simple, with four burger choices (each is actually a double patty), a few hot dogs and a veggie sandwich. Fries come in two styles: Five Guys or Cajun. The Five Guys fries are hot, and lightly crispy with just the right amount of salt.

  • 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

    10929 N. Newport Hwy. Spokane - North

    509-465-2464

    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.
