Any Happy hour food deals in Tacoma area?

cacheinhand Feb 10, 2011 04:44 PM

I'm looking for some deals we can enjoy for happy hour since money is a little tight. I perfer Tacoma area, but Puyallup, Federal way, Fife is ok too. Any food will work for me, but I perfer Mexican, Greek, and greasy bar food. I'm told that BJ's has good HH prices. Anyone been there?

      There is quite a few in Tacoma el gaucho has a nice one, varsity grill in tacoma isn't that bad. In FW azteca if you like a little grease food, red red robin for that case has one. There are a ton on urban spoon just type in Tacoma happy hour. El gaucho is all day in the bar on Sunday.

        If azteca is food for you and red robin in tow , good for human consumption then nothing left to say... Are you kidding ?
        Red robin is one of the worse kitchen in the earth , and aztec a is a shame for any Mexican standard .

      There are several nice waterfront restaurants on the north shore, between Ruston and Old Tacoma. I've been to Katie Downs a couple times and they had a very nice HH- 50% off food, I don't remember about the drinks. Check out the area on Google Maps, call a few of the others down there.

        The Melting Pot in Tacoma has a great happy hour from 4:30-6:30 and 9-11 every day. Half off all their cheese and chocolate fondue pots, salads and appetizer plates.

          The Crown Bar has very tasty food at happy hour prices at the appropriate time: http://www.crownbartacoma.com/happyho...

            A little late to the game, but here are some options and a link to more


            Pacific Grill downtown has 50 percent off happy hour. The meat candy is just a few bucks, bacon wrapped around dates, and it's really good. Mussels and fries is a great deal at $5 or $6 and the cheeseburger sliders with herb fries is another bargain for something like $6

            Masa on Sixth Avenue has an awesome happy hour deal, all day sun-tues in the bar. The tacos are taco truck authentic good. This place is a scene on the weekend nights, so avoid it unless you are 22 and like standing room only and people spilling their drinks on you

            I also recommend Crown Bar burgers, which are half price on wednesdays.

            Down on Ruston, which someone mentioned, Duke's has a great happy hour. Half off.
            All good. Great bloody mary deal at $5

            Pacific Grill
            1502 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98402

              Try The Matador, downtown on Pacific Ave. they have a few locations, I go to the one in West Seattle frequently, as it is the best HH around here. No specials on drinks, just food.

                The food really was executed poorly the last two visits I paid to the Tacoma Matador (in Nov and Dec). I'm sure most people would agree that cheese on a butternut squash quesadilla really should be melted.
