Cheat Day Dining Guide
s Jr. Burgers & Gyros
5821 Evergreen Way
Cheat day pick:The “GCBC”(Grilled Cheese Bacon Cheeseburger)
Nick's Jr. Burgers & Gyros menu says, (and we quote) “One patty topped with American cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, and Nick’s homemade may all housed between two grilled cheese sandwiches.” Need we say more?
Since calories don't count on cheat day, why not add some of Nick's fried pickle chips or mac n’ cheese bites? And don’t forget to add one of their 11 unique sauces-- we suggest the wasabi mayo.
The New Mexicans1416 Hewitt Ave.
Cheat day pick:The Rio Burger
Ever watch those TV shows where a super charismatic host reviews giant burgers that need to be split up between four people? Well, this might be one of those burgers. Loaded with smoky bacon, cheese and all the toppings, the half-foot bun alone may make you want to cry (with tears of joy, of course).
Try to eat this monster in one sitting. We dare you. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, top it with green chiles for $2 more.
Strawberry Patch Cafe
2718 Colby Ave.
Cheat day pick:Hawk's Nest Poutine
From the bottom up: choose from their house-made french fries or crunchy tater tots. After that, it’s all a blur. Add sausage gravy and all the cheese in Everett plus mounds of bacon. Top with a fried egg and chives, if you dare.
Not feeling bacon for lunch? Strawberry Patch Cafe's monthly specials are usually an excellent avenue to an afternoon food coma. For example, who can say no to a platter of French toast topped with cooked peaches, poppy seed icing, and brie?
Philly Ya Belly12432 Hwy 99, Ste. 65
Cheat day pick:Original with Whiz
Don't mess around with anything else at Philly Ya Belly. Get the original cheesesteak, WITH WHIZ. Philly natives say it's the closest thing to home. Steamed bun, juicy meat, liquid cheese. Yum time is now.
Cheat day pick:Double Fish n’ Chips
Literally a bucket of Everett's best fish and chips. Ray's Drive-in serves up all of the drive-in classics like burgers, fries, and shakes but it's their fish and chips that make them famous. These babies are battered, not breaded and fried golden and delicious. The tartar sauce puts it over the edge. Be a serious rule breaker and get a peanut butter shake.
