The best food i ever had! – I have been there three times and it just keeps getting better! the food was and is great! and the price for the food is perfect. There steaks are the best! I am planning to return soon! Thank you G W Hunters!
It takes a special talent to make a burger chewy – We were having lunch with some friends who live in post falls, they first wanted to go to "The White House", which we respectfully declined. (see my review for the reason) Well they said 'the second best place was G.W. Hunters' it was then that we knew we might be in trouble.
Walking in G. W. Hunters reminded us of the Ace Ventura movie where Tim Carrey looks around and says "What a lovely room of Death." My wife was visibly taken aback at these 'trophies' on the wall and while I would not decorate a restaurant with a bunch of dead animals hanging on the walls but it didn?t really bother me. Just beware.
First of all they are $$ expensive $$ for coffee shop food that features an array of elk / buffalo / duck entrees. However, keeping an open mind we ordered, my wife had the lunch special a grilled prime rib sandwich for $12.99. What came out was a paper thin sliced of overcooked / burnt on the grill prime rib, it was placed on a piece of sourdough bread and au jus had been sprinkled on top of it. If we had purchased the meal by the pound it would have been over $40.00. On the side of the plate was warm but grease laden French fries and a piece of lettuce with tomato on it, presumably some sort of garnish????
I tried the elk burger since our friends highly recommended it. Elk like buffalo are both lean meats and should be cooked slowly so as to not dry them out. This was not the case it was grilled over high heat and ended up dry, chewy and tasteless. It takes a special talent to make a burger of any meat chewy, but they succeeded.
Our friends raved about the food while we picked at ours and made polite conversation. The Bottom line is that this is the quality of food that was served 30-40 years ago and many places in Spokane/Post Falls/CDA have not evolved with the times. If this was the 1970's G.W. Hunters WOULD be a top notch diner/coffee shop, the difference is that it is 2008 and the culinary express has passed these people by.
gw hunters – By far my favorite place to eat, hefty portions and descent prices. I recommend their steaks. Very tasty
