Seattle Weekly's Description

Beth's is the archetypal greasy spoon—a Peter Pan restaurant that opened in 1954 and never grew up. Nearly sixty years in business means that, if you've got some generational history in the area, your grandmother probably behaved badly at Beth's back in her day—tooled up on corn mash, running with a rough crowd, climbing on the tables and showing bikers her lady business. It survived a fire 13 years ago. Every night is like a riot on the floor. Nothing will ever kill Beth's, despite the fact that the menu (full of 12-egg omelets, huge plates of hash browns and pancakes the size of placemats) seems, in certain places, custom-made to kill you. Come to Greenlake for your late night dining needs.

    As seen on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives -- Beth's 12 egg omelet makes for an interesting end to anyone's night out!!

    A Seattle Institution, I can't vouch for it during daylight hours, but at 3am it's the perfect place to cap off a night of heavy drinking.

    Home of the Southwestern Exposure challenge; 12 eggs packed with chili, salsa, sour cream and cheddar cheese. As seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food Nation.

    One of our favorite restaurants -- draw us a picture and hang it on the wall!

  • Alana L. on 01/20/10

    Hangover food since 1954. Don't forget to write on the walls!

    Don't be surly, be nice to the staff, and put your goddamned crayons back in the cup. Also, make friends with everyone who works there.
