#1667 #S990 - Pete's Fremont Fire Pit, Seattle - 1/24/2012

Update: Pete's Fremont FIre Pit closed sometime in the third quarter of 2013.

The theme here is classic Fremont weirdness, with items from the Solstice parade and signage like a back bar at Archie McPhee's.  The barbecue struck me as mediocre, but serviceable, and the help is very friendly.  Pete, the owner, also owns Roxy's and the Backdoor at Roxy's across the street (his son informed me that he proposed calling the latter "Roxy's in the Rear," but this may have been just to needle his wife).  The bar is fairly limited.
The vibe of a place like this only seems to work if you attract an equivalent sort of eclectic regular patrons.  I'll be very interested to see if that happens.
