Seattle >Food & Dining > Deluxe Bar and Grill
Conveniently located right next door to Harvard Exit Theater this old school Seattle room has a well priced happy hour everyday from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. but the best time to visit is on Wednesday when a juicy & hearty burger & fries sets you back just $5.59.
really, it will make you sick. Stomach felt upset almost immediately, was sick in about 3 hours. Thanks, but I work in the industry, and I know that it was Deluxe that made me sick/ Violently sick. And as I said, I had been a customer for years.
The Joy of Cheeseburger.
The Deluxe makes one of the best cheeseburgers you'll ever have. The drinks are strong, the service pretty good, and the half-price appetizers during happy hour delicious, but the real draw is the transcendent burgers.
Sure, there's fantastic macaroni and cheese, the second best in Seattle (sorry, i gotta give the nod to the Icon Grill for best)....but you'll come back for the delicious, perfectly grilled and creatively sauced burgers. Just tonight, for $6.95, i got a burger with cheese, bacon, garlicky relish and sauteed onions, along with a pile of fries. Maybe people have some issues for shelling out .50 for tartar but my it's so good.
Actually, don't miss the desserts, either. I've never had a proper entree at this place (though the "bi-Polar Chicken" looks interesting....) but i've eaten every burger on the menu and i've never been disappointed. Just watch out for the drinks...two will mess you up pretty good. Certainly the strongest pour on the Hill, though the Rosebud and Charlie's deserve props there too.
happy hour at noon makes me happy. My favorite rainy Saturday or Sunday in winter: breakfast at the Deluxe B&G followed by a matinee at the Harvard Exit.
Comfort food and a laid-back neighborhood bar make this a Capitol Hill classic..
Straightforward cocktails, a diverse microbrew selection and rich pub food draw a relaxed neighborhood crowd for post-work happy hours. The burger is one of the most popular in town, covered with pepper bacon, cheddar and two big slices of tomato on a multigrain bun from Grand Central Bakery. Other offerings include pan-seared salmon with mashed potatoe and thick-cut pork chops swathed in chipotle glaze with a side of mashed sweet potatoes.
awesome happy hour. Not sure why everyone is complaining about the prices: this place has AWESOME specials! Happy Hour every day from 3-6 and half-off all appetizers and $1 off beers (true about tap beers being flat though, but good bottled beer selection). Appetizers like onion rings (which are VERY good with a spicey sauce) korean ribs and much more. Wed night is Burgerama ($5 amazing burgers). Salads are good and the service is good too. Breakfast on the weekends are cheap and good. Some items on the menue are pricey but they're pricey everywhere (like fish and chips). I love the place.
It is what it is.. If you are looking for burgers and comfort food; salads, mac and cheese, and other American fair. You can stop here. The burgers are great and the mac and cheese is out of this world. Avoid the Picknic Chicken sandwidth, its a little underwhelming. If you order the mac and cheese, take 2/3rds of it home. Avoid the tapped beers, they always seem flat. I eat here once or twice a week. It the perfect standby joint.
Price gouging.. I use to be a big fan of this place until recently. I had a drink and a sandwich and it cost me $20 including tip. I ordered tarter sauce they charged me $.75. I know Seattle is expensive but this is ridiculous. I won't go back and pay that much for average food.
OK, but not great.
I've eaten at the DeLuxe twice. The first time, I had fish and chips--hard not get right. It was good, but not stellar. Unfortunately, it was winter and we were seated close to the fireplace (which rests on a section of wall/booth seating) so it was far too hot.
The second time I was there for lunch, for crabcakes and cream of mushroom soup. The crabcakes would have been good had they not been cooked on the same surface as the hamburgers, which left them with little bits of charred beef and that overwhelming burger taste. The soup tasted exactly like the flour and butter used to make it, a sign that the roux was undercooked. The potential was there for good food, but silly mistakes made it very underpar. The bar is nice, the drink selection good, but the staff isn't exceptionally friendly or outgoing.
Chicken tender heaven.
OMG! They are soooo good!
As far as bar food goes, this place is tops, but dont order anything that takes some culinary skill. You WILL be disappointed... but I heart their burgers!
I am not even a vegetarian, but I have gone to De Luxe twice for the salads alone. I have also seen their burgers and need to go back since they looked so good.
It is a little pricey, but the ambiance and location is good.
