Burgers and Pizza
Chomp into one of the thick, juicy hamburgers at EZ’s Burger Deluxe (1950 N. Wenatchee Ave., 509/663-1957, 10:30 a.m.–10 p.m. daily), but don’t forget to leave room for the house specialty—the olive oil and garlic fries are a rich and pungent dish of goodness not to be missed.
Or head to Bob’s Classic Bar & Grill (110 2nd St., 509/663-3954, 6 a.m.–10 p.m. Sun.–Tues., 6 a.m.–midnight Wed.–Sat.), where you can sidle up to the counter and enjoy burgers served in a flashy 1950s decor.
The Cottage Inn (134 Easy St., 509/663-4435, www.cottageinn.com, 4:30–9 p.m. Sun.–Thurs., 4–9 p.m. Fri.–Sat.) has been serving chicken, steak, and seafood for dinner only at this location since 1940.
For the best local pizzas—made with a distinctively spicy sauce—head to one of two Abby’s Legendary Pizza locations, one in Wenatchee proper (5th and Western, 509/662-2226) or the other in East Wenatchee (702 Grant Rd., 509/884-7211). Both locations are open 11:30 a.m.–10 p.m. Monday–Thursday, 10:30 a.m.–11 p.m. Friday–Saturday, closed on Sunday.
