Why I Love America, Reason #34: The Iron Skillet

I mean, just look at it…

Portions are not a problem here.

On a recent trip to Portland, we stopped off at the Iron Skillet in Sedro-Woolley. Our attention was grabbed by a road side sign stating “Good Food, Lousy Service”.  The food was good. The service was actually pretty good as well.

I had the Biscuit and Gravy + Two Eggs & Meat for $7.99.

Bacon, Eggs, Biscuit, Gravy, Heart Attack

Yup. All of that for $7.99. Tasted pretty great too. Of course, the heaviness of the meal pretty much put me out for the count for the rest of the day. I could have very happily gone to sleep immediately after I put the fork down.

Heartily recommend. Just don’t expect to do anything super active right after.
