Red Hot is Tacoma through and through, from the Murray Morgan Bridge Brat to the Destiny City Slaw Dog. Red Hot also has a selection of sandwiches and Vegan selections. The tap list always has a great variety of craft beers and a variety of bottled beers. While not really a sports bar, it has a couple of TVs that... More

Comfortable little pub with a good selection of house-made dogs and a very good selection of craft beers and ciders. Friendly staff, no worries about sample tasting, very tasty dogs. One small complaint, only one restroom on site, so plan your potty break.

So many options, easily adjustable for food allergies/ sensitivities. Peanut butter bacon was incredible. Oh but the beer and cider options... Piña Colada cider, who would of thought. Just try it!

Let's get this out of the way first: IRISH. DEATH. This place offers 30 microbrews on tap. Just go straight to Iron Horse's Irish Death. Look no further. My favorite microbrew. I generally don't like dark beers, but this is the bomb! I look forward to my next trip to Seattle just to get some more! The dogs and brats... More

I'm not hugely into hot dogs, but my friends recommended The Red Hot for a post-hike meal, and it sounded like it would hit the spot. So glad we went - this was one of the most satisfying meals of our trip! I stuck with water, but the beer menu was massive, so that's a big plus. We started with... More

Fun dog selection, and even vegan if that's your thing. Three of us and we got a Tacoma, Rainier Reuben, and hubby got the Tideflats. And shared a Frito pie. Really good food, good prices, great waitress and nice casual environment. Bummed because we live three hours away!
