Wally's White River Drive-In

Reviewed By Sandra S - Bonney Lake, Washington

We like the multiple dining options at Wally's - eat in your car, take out, or choose a table in the 1950's retro dining room. The food is great and includes burgers, all-you-can-eat fish and chips Monday through Thursday, and a large selection of shakes and soft drinks. We had the very tasty fish sandwich with fries and a blackberry and an orange sherbet shake and left full and satisfied.

Kettle

Reviewed By Randy K - Bradenton, Florida

Lots to choose from on a very extensive breakfast menu. Kids loved their Mickey Mouse pancakes with M & M's and whipped cream. My eggs-bacon-pancake combo was good, as well. Server was very friendly, attentive, and helpful. A welcoming place!

Sweet Necessities

Reviewed By Sandra S - Bonney Lake, Washington

Sweet Necessities is located in the heart of Enumclaw and offers abundant dessert options from coffees, to teas, to ice cream, to candies. They also sell local wines, honey, jams, art cards, and humerous cards. But this is no ordinary novelty shop. Their caramels are their specialty and the candy counter is filled with numerous delectable options, which they will box for you. The wall of teas and coffees can be bought in bulk and packaged. The ice cream counter offers numerous flavors for cones, or they will make sundaes or whatever you fancy.

We enjoyed our visit but not the ice cream, which was not very goid. When we return, we will go for a candy option instead.

The Local

Reviewed By h20ville2001 - Waseca, Minnesota

We were from out of state and came into the local looking for coffee grounds for our rental house. They were currently being roasted so, we couldn't getting any. We were told it would be ready anytime. We were asked how long we would be in town. They would call us when it was ready. They were so nice they brought it to our table when we were having lunch at a nearby eatery. We never expected such great service. We will back.

The best place on the mountain to eat by far. Great service, love this place. We went for xmas eve dinner. The food was very good and they easily accommodated special requests. We were so grateful for good service after the awful experience we had at Village Inn.

Rainier Bar & Grill

Reviewed By STEVE W - Enumclaw, Washington

Cold day in Enumclaw, so we started our meal with a small clam chowder, followed with appetizer STEAMED CLAMS (delicious) with ice cold Rainier draft beer. An excellent lunch. As usual the staff was friendly and efficient. Since I am 80 I really dont understand vegan or gluten free dining as I enjoy meat, fish, french bread and butter and beer made with wheat.

Mariachi Alegra

Reviewed By Renee002 - Hollister, California

I enjoyed the Jose Cuervo shrimp fajitas. The dish was a blend of shrimp and
vegetables, marinated in spices and, I presume, tequila. The roasted cauliflower and thinly sliced sweet potato were delicious, the broccoli a bit charred for my taste. The shrimp were tender and moist. We chose both corn and wheat tortillas. The pico de gallo was good and so were the rice and beans. Our companions picked the enchiladas, both the beef and chicken, with either Chile verde or chili colorado sauces. Dipping sauces for chips were flavorful as well. Portion size is large. My companion and I split an order and still needed a box for leftovers. The restaurant has wine and beer and what our friends say are delicious margaritas. Service was good for our large party. One of the kids and I didn't get a chance to try the dessert menu, because some of our party had an appointment after dinner.

Coffee Vault

Reviewed By Matt_Ries - Seattle, Washington

Delicious presentation of the popular Dillano's brand of coffee! My wife and I like their unique daily specials - we had a decaf white chocolate almond joy that left us speechless. Seriously. The staff are always super friendly - speedy yet not rushed. They have a great variety of pastries and breakfast sandwiches; so far we have only tried a few but they have all been really good.

Bootlegger's serves consistently good "bar food" and the wait staff is great. Good specials, large portions - a great spot for lunch!
