  • Penny's Pit

    14319 Hwy. 53, Rathdrum Rural Idaho

    208-687-2052

    Penny's Pit Pub & Lounge operates out of what was once a video store sandwiched between a car wash, laundromat, Dashco convenience store and gas station. Penny's serves salads, wings, and similar grub, plus burgers named for screen icons: John Wayne with pepper jack, the Classic Marilyn cheeseburger, the Bogart smothered in chili and cheese. The 6-inch tall Gosman, invented by a regular customer, is two patties, each topped with pepper jack and bacon; jalapeno; onion rings; buffalo sauce; a fried egg; and bleu cheese dressing. (May 2014)

  • Post Street Ale House

    1 N. Post St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-789-6900

    Post Street’s prime downtown Spokane location, across from the Davenport Hotel, draws a mix of businessmen, concertgoers, sports fans and college kids.

  • Prospectors

    12611 N. Division St. Spokane - North

    509-467-6177

    Prospectors’ natural log interior and granite fireplaces give this north-side restaurant a mountain lodge feel. So of course what you want here is comfort food. And that’s what you get at Prospectors. In epic portions. Burgers, brick-oven-cooked pizza, po’ boys and “Mom’s Meatloaf” are served up at lunch and dinner, and hearty country-style breakfasts start the morning right. (July 2013)
  • Ram Drive In

    34608 N. Newport Highway, Chattraroy Rural Eastern WA

    509-292-8959

    To most people, Chattaroy is just a little stretch of civilization between Spokane and the lakes up north, but the Ram Drive In has made it something worth pulling over for. The Ram Burger is what keeps the line out the door most mealtimes, stacked with two patties, two cheese slices, ham and “special sauce.” Just so you cover all of the food groups, try some crispy onion rings or seasoned curly fries and their huckleberry ice cream, served all year round for all who just can’t live without it.

  • Red Lion BBQ

    126 N. Division St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-835-5466

    Red Lion BBQ is known for strong drinks, great wings and an incredibly casual atmosphere (not exactly a first-date venue). This legendary sports bar also is a non-official gathering place for University of Montana alums... unless there are other people who go to a bar to watch the Grizzlies. Unique in that this place stays open well into the late-night hours, the Red Lion serves barbecue standards like tri-tip and ribs, but they also do salmon and a long list of hot sandwiches.

    208-765-2421

    With tall, chocolaty malts, bottomless fries and burgers you can hardly wrap your lips around, this gourmet burger joint will satiate your cravings for a big, juicy, American burger. Though being sung to by a herd of clapping, grinning servers is probably obnoxious to an adult, what kid doesn’t want that attention, not to mention the free ice cream for their birthday? Or their “birthday,” if you catch our drift.

  • Roger's Ice Cream and Burgers

    1224 Sherman Ave. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-930-4900

    While Roger’s looks like an average ice cream stand on the side of Sherman, it stands as a staple of the Coeur d’Alene summertime tradition. Homemade fries, a menagerie of ice cream flavors, and a good burger have fed sun-tanned and sweaty resort-goers for years. Outdoor seating in the summer and a heated tent in the winter aren’t the usual sit-down dining setting, so make sure to bring a jacket and an appreciation for downtown Coeur d'Alene.
  • Ron's Drive-In

    12502 E. Sprague Spokane Valley

    509-924-4660

The Big R burger makes for a tasty specialty. The Big Big R is even bigger — thus, better. Did we mention their shakes? One sip of the chocolate will send you to the moon. In the valley for more than 50 years, Ron's has been serving up some of the best fast food around and is certainly a staple in the Inland Northwest. (August 2012)
  • The Rusty Moose

    9105 W. SR 2 Spokane - West

    509-747-5579

    It may only be five minutes west of downtown Spokane, but the ambience of the Rusty Moose makes you feel like you’re in a cozy, mountain resort. The restaurant serves up 16 different types of burgers, as well as sandwiches, wraps and seasonally served fresh fish. You can leave with a full belly, but don’t leave empty-handed. Rusty’s sells three exclusive varieties of spices, as well as glassware and coffee and signature wine. (July 20130
  • Salty Dog Eatery

    718 S. Main St., Deer Park Spokane - North

    509-276-1990

    The fried fish is some of the best around: In season they use fresh halibut, hand-cut and dipped in a light batter then served with tartar sauce made on the premises. The burgers are hand-formed with extra lean ground beef from Eggers Meats. Get past the humble exterior and enter the warm, wood-paneled sports bar within.
  • 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)

  • Seasons of Coeur d'Alene

    209 E. Lakeside Ave. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-664-8008

    This 200-seat, 9,000-square-foot space is a massive undertaking for a city the size of Coeur d’Alene, and it has an equally outsized menu of some 30 options (grilled cheese to a New York steak), aimed at the entire spectrum of price points ($8-$29 respectively). (July 2013)
  • Stacks at Steam Plant

    159 S. Lincoln St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-777-3900

    You could argue that Stacks at Steam Plant is Spokane’s most iconic restaurant: what other eatery has giant smokestacks sprouting from the top of it? There’s a range of steak, fish, poultry and pasta dishes on the menu and, of course, lots of beer-infused recipes, inspired by its on-site craft brewing operation, Steam Plant Brewing Co. (July 2013)
  • Steelhead Bar & Grille

    218 N. Howard St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-1303

    With good prices, better burgers and fantastic shoestring fries, the Steelhead has long been considered one of the cornerstones in downtown Spokane’s dining scene. The menu also features seafood and other entrees. From 3-6 pm, world-weary 9-to-5ers are known to congregate over a $2.50 pint (or $5 schooner if it’s been an especially hard day) for happy hour. (July 2013)
  • 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)
  • The Swinging Doors

    1018 W. Francis Ave. Spokane - North

    509-326-6794

  • Thrifty Scotsman

    12024 E. Sprague Spokane Valley

    509-928-2214

    They weren't joking with the thrift thing. This place is cheap. Inside the small, unadorned block building are a smattering of old-fashioned arcade machines, but the real fun is going through the drive-thru. Trust us. Try a Scotsman Burger. You'll be glad you did. (May 2013)
