Seattle’s Best Chicken Fried Steak, Served 24 Hours Every Day

Seattle’s Best Chicken Fried Steak, Served 24 Hours Every Day

Foursquare just published their list of the best places to get a chicken fried steak in Seattle. And  The 5 Point is ranked #1.

A chicken fried steak ain’t chicken, which seems obvious by the name, but people ask all the time. It’s steak, hand pounded thin to tenderize it, coated with seasoned flour and deep fried. Then it gets covered with our country gravy, and served with eggs and hash browns, or mashed potatoes and veggies.

The 5 Point’s chicken fried steak isn’t just Seattle’s best, it’s Seattle’s biggest. Check it out. We serve it 24 hours per day, every day.

Eggs Benedict is the core to any American breakfast restaurant, and The 5 Point has some of the best. This Country Benedict with two half English muffins, sausage patties, poached eggs, smothered in our country sausage gravy, with a side of hash browns, is an awesome take on the classic. The 5 Point has several others including the Classic Benedict with Canadian Bacon and homemade hollandaise, a Corned Beef Benedict, and a Salmon Benedict.

The 5 Point Cafe is voted Western Washington’s Best Dive Bar

The 5 Point Cafe is voted Western Washington’s Best Dive Bar

The 5 Point Cafe voted Best Dive Bar

SEATTLE – The 5-Point Cafe was selected BEST Dive Bar by the voters of Western Washington in 2016’s Best of Western Washington contest.

The 5-Point Cafe boasts the title of the “Longest-run Family Eatery in Seattle” AND “Belltown’s Oldest Bar.” It’s known as one of the world’s best dive bars and diners.

The dimly-lit working class bar serves hearty, inexpensive, unpretentious eats with a usually crowded cocktail lounge serving up stiff drinks and raucous conversation.

The dive was first founded in 1929 by husband and wife team C. Preston and Frances Smith, but the bar’s most colorful history doesn’t come until the mid-70s when the couple’s son Dick took over the family business.

Dick Smith maintained the reputation his father built, for good food and large portions, but made the bar legendary through his own antics.

Dick was a notorious prankster, famously installing a periscope in the bar’s men’s room with a clear view of the Space Needle. That periscope is now in nearly every guidebook about Seattle.

Now the bar is owned by David Meinert. But don’t worry, he and his staff are keeping the tradition of The 5 Point alive with the same long-term employees, great homemade food at good prices, 24/7 service, and Seattle’s best jukebox.

Deep Fried Cheese Curds!

Deep Fried Cheese Curds!

If you haven’t had them at The 5 Point, you haven’t had them. We take fresh, hand made cheese curds, hand dip them in our own beer batter, and deep fry them. We serve them with a garlic aoli, but encourage you to try honey as well. It’s amazing.
