    2501 N. Monroe St. Spokane - North


    Don’t be fooled by the exterior, which looks like a former hamburger joint. Azar’s serves up tasty Greek and Middle Eastern fare and offers a free belly-dancing show on Friday nights. Current owner Katy Azar continues to prepare tender kebabs and savory dips from her mother’s recipes. If you must choose, try the lentil soup, the gyro melt and, of course, hummus.
  • Baek Chun Sushiyama

    1321 W. Third Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    A sushi chef can have his fish sent from Seattle or Sydney or wherever. He can have it overnighted to his doorstep. But that’s not good enough for Charlie Yamamoto. To make sure he’s offering the freshest fish, he drives to Seattle every week to personally examine every fish he buys. So you know the sushi is fabulously fresh, and the bulgoki, yakisoba, udon, bibimbop and donburi are good, too.

    With its Alamo-meets-the-rainforest aesthetic, Casa de Oro is precisely what you want in casual Mexican food: fast service, generous portions, affordable price and a never-ending procession of chips, beans and salsa. We recommend the classics: burritos, enchiladas, tacos. And muchos chips. (March 2013)

    900 NE Colorado St. Moscow/Pullman


    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)

    The friendly staff and tasty food at this tucked-away spot make it a staple for downtown worker bees. All baked goodies - like scones and delicious apple-oat bars - are made from scratch daily, and they'll whip up a full array of espresso drinks on demand. For lunch, there are deli and panini sandwiches, wraps, a daily special, salads and soups like chicken chili and crab bisque. Try the Paulsen panino: roast beef, cheddar and horseradish aioli. The Daily Grind is worth the trek up to the skywalk level of the Paulsen Center. Eat there, or grab your to-go order and dine al desko. (SH)
  • Didier's Yogurt & More

    10410 N. Division St. Spokane - North


    An iconic destination for nearby Whitworth University undergrads, Didier’s has been doing the froyo thing for more than 25 years.

  • Dolly's Corner Cafe

    1825 N. Washington St. Spokane - North


    For more than a half-century, generations of truckers, church folk and hungover college students have been squeezing into Dolly’s booths, eager for a heaping plate of eggs and hash browns. We recommend the eggs Benedict, the avocado omelet or, for lunch, the gut-busting Guy Burger, a massive number that has to be held together with a steak knife.
  • Dub's Drive-In

    703 Hwy. 2 Sandpoint


    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. Worth the stop if you’re just passing through — especially for 45-cent doughnuts or $1 cones. Dub’s owner might even take your order himself. (July 2013)
  • El Que

    141 S. Cannon St. Spokane - Downtown


    Don't be fooled by the crosses, Catholic saint candles and sometimes-creepy pictures of the Virgin Mary, because this is a tequila bar. The intimate brick nook, attached to the back of The Elk in Browne’s Addition, serves hand-held Mexican food, Mexican beer and unique bottles of liquor. Enjoy a tall boy Pabst Blue Ribbon or a shot of ghost-pepper tequila. (July 2013)

    125 S. Wall St. Spokane - Downtown


    Nice enough to take a date or Mom, Europa is a good option for dinner or splitting a bottle of wine and ordering one of their appetizers (from calamari to hummus and spinach-artichoke dip). If it’s pizza you’re looking for, take a look at Europa’s 13 different Tuscan-style pies. The wine list is long, varied and features something for every oenophile. (July 2013)

  • Fireside Grille

    1095 SE Bishop Blvd. Moscow/Pullman


    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.
  • Fizzie Mulligans

    331 W. Hastings Ave Spokane - North


    This expansive bar transforms depending on the night: Sometimes it draws college kids from Whitworth and at other times a bunch of cowboys with large hats. You never know. Regardless, it’s popular. In fact, we know of one Inlander staffer who, frustrated with the wait to get inside, jumped the steel fence surrounding the outdoor patio. (Bad idea, by the way.) Try the broasted chicken for lunch (a house favorite), or pop in at night for entertainment, drink specials and quality bar food. Specials are always changing and menu choices are pleasingly varied.

  • Frankie Doodle's

    30 E. Third Ave. Spokane - Downtown


    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. (MCP)

  • Garland Sandwich Shoppe

    3903 N. Madison St. Spokane - North


    Located just off Garland Avenue, this little sandwich place should not be underestimated. Its menu is replete with sandwiches, ranging from gourmet paninis to well-executed classics like the BLT. Really hungry? Order the Dagwood. It weighs more than a pound. A rotation of soups and a salad menu round out the menu. (July 2013)
  • HaHa's Teriyaki Grill

    9331 N. Division Spokane - North


    On the outside, Ha Ha’s Grill House looks like the other industrial buildings on this stretch of Garland. Then you open the door and are hit full in the face by a lovely atmosphere of green and yellow walls, dotted with various (mostly classical) record albums and contemporary décor. Chef/owner John Ha plays with recipes inherited from his mother, Soon Ha, and only works with organic and natural ingredients. He describes Ha Ha’s fare as “Euro-Korean fusion.” (BT, 9/10)

    Hacienda Las Flores has everything you’d expect from a family Mexican restaurant. The interior is bright and busy. The custom of passing out chips is taken seriously. The enchiladas, burritos and taco plates are gargantuan. If you still want more, Tuesdays and Thursdays are all-you can-eat tacos for $7. They also have a $5 take-out special and a daily happy hour from 2-5 pm, when you can get two beers for $5 or two margaritas for just $6. (March 2013)
  • Herbie's Deli Shop

    4055 N. Government Way Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    This hole-in-the-wall deli shop has a lot of character. Herbie’s Deli Shop slogan, “mighty salubrious,” is backed by friendly service and large, delicious sandwiches — panini, deli, or specialty — with refreshing salads, homemade specialty soups and a comparable Chicago-style corn beef sandwich. The menu’s five varieties of daily fresh baked bread goes well with two house-made soups or homemade chili. (August 2012)
