Movies, dining and things to do / Spokane and North Idaho

Half the price. Twice the tasty.

My old buddy (and editor) Joe met for lunch at the Post Street Ale House on Friday afternoon. Not surprisingly, the place was packed – as in, there was a line out the door. Post Street is offering an amazing deal: All food half-off, all day, every day in April – and fans are showing up in droves.

This was Joe’s first visit, so when we finally made it to a table and picked up the menu, he asked, “What’s good here?”

I started ticking off my favorites … fish tacos, pork sliders, fried pickles, black bean soup, halibut & chips, Caesar with chicken, cheeseburger, tuna melt, French fries … And then I said, “Pretty much everything’s good here.”

I went with something new (to me), the patty melt and Joe decided on the pork sliders. We started with a basket of fried pickles, because they’re awesome.

Joe’s plate was tiny. Two sliders and a side of cole slaw (which reminds me, I LOVE the cole slaw here – it runs a close second to Dave’s). Thankfully my basket of meat and marble Rye and fried shoestring potatoes was more than my belly could handle, so I shared.

The place stayed packed the whole time we were there. Still, food made it to tables relatively quick and we only had to wave the waitress down once for a soda refill.

My entire bill – for fried pickles, patty melt with fries and a soda – was $8.50! Delicious at twice the price.

There’s still a week left to this awesome deal, so get yourself down there. Be prepared to wait for a table, no matter what time of the day you go. Because if there’s one thing Spokane loves, it’s a bargain. If there’s one thing Spokane loves even more, it’s a bargain that tastes good.
