#2584 - Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse, Federal Way, WA - 7/27/2014

Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse, Federal Way, WA
Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse is one of a small chain of three Jimmy Macs in the area and part of a much larger group of restaurants in this style in mid-sized towns across America. The traditional American comfort food is pretty good and a pretty good value, and I wouldn't at all mind having a place like this somewhere in my neighborhood to help fill the Seattle steak gap (between crappy steaks and expensive steaks). The vibe is family-friendly, which is to say Pete-unfriendly, and the bar serves up candy flavored cocktails in 25-ounce glasses. (Beers are available in 25-oz, 16-oz or "Sissy 12 ounce.") The exterior is constructed to look like and old west town, while inside there are old signs and license plates on the walls, mid century diner vinyl seats, corregated metal, cutesy handwritten cardboard signs, and a big vat of peanuts (throw the shells on the floor!). The beef cuts are displayed under glass near the entrance -- and I'd be surprised if they didn't price out the possibility of having cattle wandering around that customers could select from like lobsters in a tank. If you are hungry and in a patient mood, it can be a fairly good choice.

P.S. If you stop here for food when it's nice out, consider slipping over the highway and spending a little time at West Hylebos Wetlands Park, which features some nice, short trails and the historic Denny Cabin.
