Renton Update: Please post favorite places

utekai | Aug 24, 2008 07:59 AM

Not many recents posts on the Renton area. Would like to get some of your favorite eateries.

The Whistle Stop Ale House (did I get the name right?). Beer selection is great. Haven't had the food.

Saigon Pho (across from the coffee place in the old gas station with coffee so good it will wake the dead). I love this place and go here all the time, everytime I'm in town. Good pho, reasonable prices. Small seemingly family run.

Red Housee (name???). Plenty of beer varieties.

Stanfords: pricey but always good.

Azteca: Pretty basic stuff, nothing special, but ok.

California Pizza Kitchen: I like. Seems a little pricey for pizza, but a good menu.

Claim Jumper: Why do I even write about this place. Too high prices and almost a bad experience every time. From the warm tea that the waitress pee'd in to warm up, to the inchworm making it's way across my mashed potatoes. The Claim Jumper is worth the mention just to state how bad and overpriced this place really is. No kidding, when I pointed out the inchworm, the waiter said, "Don't worry, it comes from the Kale." He did take my plate away, then didn't offer to bring another. Nothing but a sorry from the manager. Uh no free dessert or meal, NOPE, nothing but a sorry. Apparently this type thing happens too much for them to comp a meal.

Newport Bay (name???). On the corner. This is a pretty boring seafood place. Nothing special.

Here's my short take on Renton, and you can see I'm woe-fully devoid of great eateries. I'll provide another update in a few days as we check out some more restaurants in Renton.
