Tacoma lunch recommendation?

Any affordable lunch recommendations for Tacoma would be greatly appreciated. Have dear friends with a long layover passing thru and we need to meet up near Tacoma (which I' m not familiar with in terms of best restaurant offerings). Friends like too not spend much but I would like to impress with good food . Plenty of time to kill, thinking along lines of deli or tavern? but any recs would be great. TIA

  1. Neither tavern nor deli, but this place is about 12 minutes from the airport, has fine fish & chips & a decent selection of draft beer:

    Sharps Roaster & Ale, 18427 International Boulevard

    We've enjoyed it a few times before & after flights.


    1. I would take them to Katie Downs on the waterfront on Ruston Way. Food is okay but the view is great - right on the water. Prices are decent.

      1. If it's a weekday, Indochine on Pacific Avenue, downtown Tacoma. Also, the Spar in Old Town for a fun tavern/food experience.

        1. Southern Kitchen 1716 6th Av - catfish and plenty more.
