I've been going to the TS since high school (I'm old now!) Top quality, fantastic customer service, great prices! The chicken and fish are a family favorite. Don't forget to ask for cocktail sauce if you get the fish! Thank you, Thrifty Scotsman, for never failing us and always getting our order right!!

Husband has many fond memories of coming to Scotsman with his family growing up. My expectations were high and surely exceeded. Accommodating for my gluten intolerance. Delicious burger and delectable strawberry shake! Thank you!

I went to tgis place as a kid and it has been tge standard by which all other burgers are measured. So glad that 15 years since my last visit to Spokane, they have not chanded a bit. Super ham is my favorite followed by tge super bacon. Tarter sauce amazing. Thick fries are alqays fresh.
