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.
You'll find the Post Street Ale House at the corner of Sprague and Post, on the ground floor of the Hotel Lusso.
