Eat This Now: Western Burger

Terry's Office Tavern's Western Burger

Terry's Office Tavern is a true tavern. The neighborhood hangout in Tacoma's Proctor District, by definition, serves only beer and wine. If a domestic beer, reasonable priced glass of vino or classic craft brew is your thing, Terry's has you covered. Suds and sips have served them well since they opened in 1936.

I visted on a weekend day and found a rail full of regulars watching the Mariners. Friendly conversation lingered in the air from both sides of the horseshoe bar.

Terry's menu consists of some appetizers alongside a hearty burger selection and chicken wings. Having established myself as an admirer of the hamburger and with us closing out the burger tournament last night it seemed only appropriate I opt for a burger. The Western Burger ($9.95) did not disappoint.

Upon a classic sesame seed bun was a charbroiled half-pound burger topped off with crispy beer battered onion rings, bacon, barbecue sauce and choice of cheese (pepperjack for me naturally). The burger smelled as smoky as it tasted - delicious.

It reminded me of burgers at a summer barbeque - nothing fancy or adventurous about this burger and there need not be. It's damn tasty. Don't fix it if it isn't broken!

Bonus: Terry's fries are hand cut, though you can choose tots, onion rings, soup or salad instead.

Service is what one hopes for from neighborhood digs: non-pretentious, efficient, casual and friendly.

Need a burger and brew with no fuss? Terry's Office Tavern is the place to go.

WESTERN BURGER, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday, noon to 11 p.m. Sunday, Terry's Office Tavern, 3410 N. Proctor St., Tacoma 253.752.6262
