And we mean that in the best possible way. Here are a few places where the food's sloppy good. Your dry cleaner will love you for dining there.
Ginourmous portions of home-cooking faves are a BIG draw at this wildly popular place. Come hungry!
Dry cleaners have got to love this place, home of the wonderfully messy sandwiches gushing with flavor. The plates of chicken with rice and beans are big enough to share. Take your meal down to Golden Gardens for a pretty near perfect picnic. Cash only.
A little slice of the South on Capitol Hill, complete with biscuits, grits, collard greens, fried chicken and country ham from the famous Benton's in Tennessee. On Friday evenings, supper is served family style.
Flavor with a capital flav! Love the latest from these ladies, leaders in the food truck revolution in SEA. Try the tacos, of course, but if you're a fan of sausage or/and kimchi, get the link that combines the two. It's so incredibly good. Fish and chips are awesome, too. Wonderful location in West Seattle with a knockout view of the city.
I am a French fry snob and these taters are tops! Fat and crispy and salt and peppered!! There's all sorts of stuff you can order to go with those fries, including the super fine fried veggies. And Vitamin R on tap, too!
Hot dog! This is a carnivore's sweet dream, part-butcher shop, part-cozy cafe, where meats are treated with reverence. Try one of the classic sandwiches or get a mess of sausages to take home and grill. Wish this gem was in my neighborhood. No, wait. If it was, then I'd no doubt be living in my fat pants.
Come on carnivores! This brand new killer bar from the winning Matt's in the Market team is a meat lover's dream, especially if you're into offal. You know, like cow's lips and beef heart and -- the show-stopper! -- half a pig's head, smoked and served whole for the table to pick on. It's quite a sight! If you're into something a little tamer, there's a mighty fine meatloaf sandwich, roast chicken done right and daily specials that are nothing short of spectacular. Like that bacon and egg, pictured here.
And, oh, yeah, let's not forget the cool cocktails, including barrel-aged treats like a Martinez. That old-fashioned drink pre-dates the Martini, believe it or not.
The stellar selection of booze includes a local "Moonshine" created just for Radiator by 2Bar Distillery in Georgetown. I'll drink to that!
