The Spokane Quality Inn is an unlikely place to find a restaurant serving great Venezualan cuisine but at Manna, you can find just that. The menu is tempered with typical American fare, of course, to please passing diners but there are gems to be had, including arepas (bite-sized corn cakes filled with a meat of your choice or cheese and served with dipping salsa), and an excellent chicken soup. For dessert, rather randomly, you can have the county fair favorite, funnel cake. Worth dropping in to but be prepared to enjoy a hodge-podge of cuisines.
Located on East Sprague in downtown Spokane, the Jones Radiator is set in a former garage and has retained much of its quirky decor. If you are looking for a classy bar to drink, then this place is definitely not for you. Whatever the bar lacks in its decor is made up by its extensive selection of ales, which many visitors and avid drinkers have proclaimed to be nothing less than divine. If you thought your visit to the bar will be restricted to just drinking, then you'll have to think again as it hosts a number of blues and rock concerts throughout the year. Open till late on most nights, you are in for a great time at this strangely charming bar.
Red Lion BBQ & Pub is the favorite among locals for great food and sports watching. Happy hour is a hit and can get pretty crowded but the service is fast and the beer is cold. Whichever team you root for you will always have fun with the lively, energetic crowd that frequents the Red Lion. Trip-tip, salmon, ribs and chicken are their specialty and their side dishes make you feel like you are at a backyard barbecue.
It's easy to be a fan of this American sports bar with its bit of European zest. Sounds of soccer and baseball games blend with trophies and flags from various countries in the pub-like atmosphere.

If you're in a hurry, get some barbecued ribs or chicken to go. Expect to spend between $10 and $20 for a satisfying dinner and a few drinks.

The beaming face of Luigi at the top of the menu perfectly encapsulates this restaurant - it serves decent, unpretentious Italian food at fair prices. The Sardinia Old Fashioned Spaghetti is a riot of flavor, and the Chicken Picatta, sauteed in garlic, shallows, mushrooms and butter is beautifully cooked. There is a list of tasty cocktails and no Italian restaurant is complete without a selection of moreish desserts. Luigi's is also available for events and special occasions; call for more details.
