Chuckless Cheese…


Anyone who has been to dinner at the ELLIOT BAY BREW PUB knows that it can be the closest thing to Chuck E Cheese in West Seattle 🙂   BUT in a strange anomaly, instead of the kids dragging the parents, it’s the other way around??? It goes something like this… "I sure would love a great BEER hmm and a hunk of meat to go with it? but we have the kids??? EUREKA, the light bulb has just turned on, THE BEAR FOUND THE HONEY". I kid the Bay! In all fairness this place has carved out a niche and is kicking some major $$@.

But I digress, I am here to talk about lunch! Lunch at the BAY is quiet, tranquil, etc… Grab a paper, get that booth you always wanted and get ready to enjoy… They have great burgers! good fries, and if you’d like a tasty salad instead of those nasty carbs… buck and seventy five, DONE! There are allot of other great things on the menu, some of my favorites are the Ahi Tuna Sandwich and the Greek Gyro but the bread and butter, it’s the BURG’s.

This is straight up pub grub done well.  The $$$ are on par with most pubs; not cheap but fair. STEVE says……. 3 and a half LUNCHBOXES! out of five.   


Note:  Elliott Bay Brew Pub is located at 4720 California Avenue S.W., Seattle.   Ph: 206-932-8695.

Better THAN you think!


Hi all, this is my first post on the BDB and I have decided I would write about something I know about… Lunch in West Seattle.

I have been plundering the restaurants of West Seattle since the early 90’s and I loves the lunch! In my posts I am going to be your amateur review dood, I am reviewing Lunch only, even though in WS the lunch and the Din Din are often the same… BUT THIS IS THE LUNCHBOX! I take into account the two most important Lunch elements, Taste and $. The atmosphere… maybe a little, Service… maybe—– ITS LUNCH! food and $ thats what matters. I am Single and I work at home so as you can imagine, lunch is the great escape! So here we GO. THAN BROTHER’S PHO This place has become a favorite! One word……. Simple,Simple,Simple Oh’ and very tasty! (one word three times and an emotion).  They have pho and thats it, although it comes in several models… Veggie, Chicken, Meatball and many varieties of beef. The other great thing is that you would have to try hard to spend $10 per person… I find that the small or the Medium is more than enough and both are less than $5… now that kicks $#%. They dont skimp on the basil and shoots either! In an effort to kick it up a notch, you also get a cream filled puff pastry? THAN BROTHERS gets 3 and a half LUNCHBOXES out of 5, I don’t know if their is a five so thats good! So thats my first go around:)

If you think I am correct please send your love letters, if not feel free to shred me! OUCH! Till next time… DON’T FORGET YOUR LUNCH
