      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Good Food- Marblemount

Recommended Posts

What happened to Good Food? All closed down and looking sad. I know the burgers were gut bombs but it was a good place to go all dirty, stinky after climbing. Maybe the old lady retired.

never did like that joint - perhaps the shocking lack of beer? :)

This is the height of the travel season, so you would think Good Food would be open for sure.

 

Maybe they couldn't compete with the newish BBQ shack by Texaco and the bunny place.

At least one person I know got gnarly food poisoning from eating there, so there's also that...

That place was a disgusting health hazard. Based on the amount of trash piled up around the building and the filth visible in the kitchen I couldn't believe the state hadn't shut it down. Maybe they finally did.

 

Fwiw there is an really excellent burger joint in Concrete right where the speed trap starts. Great quick food.

The BBQ caboose is pretty good, plus cold beer.

Que Car BBQ :tup: +1

 

What about the burger joint next to the gas station in Darrington? Has anyone checked it out?

Good Food: used to be good. Until the husband/ trained chef left in 05. I remember sitting in there with Josh after the NPick traverse, the wife was taking the news of his departure well, leaving it "all in the lords hands" > The 10 spawn were only concerned with crowding around the 1 computer in the side seating. It went down hill after that. the kids tried but must have lost interest, and moved away. Burger Barn is fine the Marblemount diner is about the best right now.

Burger Barn = :tup:...so long as you're into good ole fashiond burgers/n/fries and such

 

You can sit at the picnic table with your grub and sip a brew from the gas station!

Indeed, "The Good Lord" apparently saw fit to do what the state of Washington did not, which was shut down Good Food. :noway::hcluv:

 

While TLC may glorify over-populating uber-christian nutbags (http://www.duggarfamily.com/), the reality of Marblemount displayed what is likely a more typical existance of this sort. :crosseye::mistat: 8D

 

On the upside, it's always possible the great gods of universal irony will see fit to placing a brewery with awesome food in its place? :rocken::brew: One can always hope...

 

R.I.P. Good Food. ::skull::

Who here remembers Mountain Song that used to be where the Buffalo Run is now? I still miss the salad bar and hippie vibes.

ah yes... who could possibly forget the "each entree delivered to the table on one hour intervals" vibe.... but on the other hand, lots of extra time for beer....

I always hit up Cascade Burgers in Concrete after a good climb. Their food and malts are the bomb diggity. Also their curly fries come in fryer basket size. Insane.

Just experienced this yesterday. A worthy $4.25. They cut the potatoes to order and use real peanut butter in their shakes.

Yikes, looks like they cut up a 10 lb sack for that order!! And their cones are generously sized as well.

Hmmm. It seems like they used to be fine. At least I've eaten there and never experiences food poisoning. Then again the last time I ate there was more than 15 years ago.

You can always hit up Birdsview Brewing, just west of Concrete. The wife and I try to hit it up on our way out of the North Cascades. Their food is ok, but they do have some good microbrew.

They may have been better 15 years ago, but the last two times I stopped (2-4 years ago?), it was no good at all.

I have read many a TR posted by strong, competent climbers who spoke of making it down to the mythical 'Good Food' before they closed for the day...

 

I never made it down in time.

The sign advertising "Good Food" was exactly half right.
