Steamboat Annie's Compliment - Great Food From A Hole In The Wall
GRIFFIN, WASHINGTON -- We had a craft sale on Saturday, December 13, in Griffin, WA, just outside Olympia. They had a listing of nearby places to eat and drink, and Steamboat Annie's was listed. When we pull in, we thought there had to be a mistake, because the place was the size of a Tuff Shed. The prices were reasonable, so we ordered. I got the Swiss Bacon Burger, and Crystal got the Chicken Strips. I had told Crystal about a place I hung out at in 1966, called Jack's Burgers, in Hobb, NM. When I bit into my burger, I was taken back in time to those wonderful burgers. Crystal said there were four huge strip in the dinner, and our fries had been combined. She said she was almost unable to eat all her dinner. She showed me the cardboard 'boat' the fries had been in, and there was not a speck of grease. The boat looked unused. We will be going out to Steamboat Island to eat at Annie's every time we get the chance. It might be hard to find, but is well worth the hunt. We both had all we could eat for $12.
You can't do that at Denny's. Yes, it is often true that the little mom & pop burger stand beats the big chains and sit-down restaurants all out.
