Breakfast with the wife, we hadn't been here in years. Breakfast was good, the biscuits are humungous so if you get them bring your appetite. Good chicken fried steak.

Mr. T's is an institution in the Skagit Valley, famous for their generous portions and down home feel. Unfortunately, the house keeping has taken a huge dive in recent years. The carpet is shinny and glazed from all the grease from the kitchen and the...More

Went here for lunch on a recommendation from a friend. This place doesn't look like much from the outside. However, the food is yummy and portion sizes are huge. If you're looking for a down-home greasy spoon local spot this is it!

This local favorite is packed. Expect a wait. Often the line is out the door. Not a fancy place. Rather noisy. But the staff is friendly and attentive. I have never been able to finish a meal here. Thank heavens for take-home boxes! The homemade...More
