We are planning a trip to visit my daughter and her husband in Seattle.
Does anyone know of any good BBQ places, steak houses or just grill places to eat? They live and work over at the Microsoft complex. Any suggestions would be appreciated and I really want to look like I know what I am talking about.
Thanks for any and all help!

If I were that close I'd drive over to Mongo's place and make him cook for me.

I am to believe that there are a bunch of rib loilers up there? No BBQ or Steak Houses?

John, the MS campus is located in Redmond. The best Q in that area is 3-Pigs BBQ in nearby Bellevue. Here is their link (http://www.3pigsbarbq.com/).

For a steakhouse, you also need to travel to Bellevue to El Gaucho. Here is their link (http://www.elgaucho.com/El-Gaucho-Bellevue.html). They are not cheap.

Hope that helps a bit. :idea:

IMO, a trip to Seattle equates to awesome seafood of all types. BBQ is not the first thing I think about in Seattle....so sorry can't help you.

Where high way 599 and I-5 cross is a Union 76 gas station. In the parking lot is a BBQ trailer called "Sweet Bones BBQ". One of the only places I would eat at for BBQ

The best fish and chips I've ever had were at a place right next to a club called Neumo's on Pike Street. Also a good cheap burger at a place called Dick's, which is also near a couple good record stores.

If you have time, and are a Hendrix fan, the Experience Music Project is fantastic. There's also a great display of vintage electric guitars there as well as the history of Seattle music. That stuff is by the Space Needle.

I'm late to the party on this, but I used to work at the MS main campus. Dixie's BBQ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dixie's_BBQ) used to be the place to go. Gene, the founder/owner died a few years back. He would walk around the place bullying people with a sphincter-searing chili sauce called "The Man." It was great food back about 8 years ago.

Also, south of Seattle, check out Caveman Kitchen (http://www.cavemankitchen.com/). I used to eat there from the time I could first drive. Alder/cherry/apple wood smokers. Pretty good stuff.

Thanks for the suggestions. Seafood will be a given and we will eat our weight in crabs I am sure but I like to try and check out BBQ joints whenever I can esp when we travel to different regions.
