Seatac to Olympia

Hi 'hounds,
I'll be visiting your area, driving from seatac to Olympia/Sheldon at the end of this week; midday on Friday, and back lunchtime on Monday.
Any recommendations for sampling the bounty of the NorthWest along the route? Dives/rustic is preferred, but by no means essential.

  1. Rather than food, mount rainer is not far if you have some time.

      I know the terrain is excellent and I hope to see some; being from the arid lands of Southern California anything resembling an old growth forest is prized.
      I am hoping to find edibles that meet up with the land's high standards.

    2. Duke's on Ruston Way in Tacoma has the best chowder in Seattle.

      1. So I'll be in Shelton on Sunday night, and unfortunately Xinh's is closed on Sundays.
        Any suggestions?

          Ranch House BBQ is about 20 miles and is open on Sunday and is good if you like BBQ/Dives/Rustic as you mentioned
