Skinny Legs

I have my favorite restaurants and then I have my go-to places; they’re not necessarily the best food or the most amazing service but they’re consistent, reasonably priced and they have a few menu items I enjoy.  Most of these places are pub-like in nature and are a perfect combination of bar and restaurant so you can go for a drink, or for food or both!

Skinny Legs, on Fairfield Avenue in Bellevue, is one of my go-to places.  When I don’t know where I want to go, I go to Skinny Legs.  When I don’t know what I feel like eating, I go to Skinny Legs.  See how this works?  I go here about once a month or so and I love it because I always know what to expect.  I have the same server every time, I can’t think of her name but she’s no-nonsense and gets us our food and drinks quickly. 

For a smaller establishment, Skinny Legs has quite a few flat screens that are visible whether you’re in the main bar area (smoking) or the smaller (non-smoking) area off to the left. 

For an appetizer my friend ordered the fried mozzarella. It's your basic mozzarella, no surprises here!

For an entrĂ©e I went with the Buffalo Chicken wrap and subbed a house side-salad with honey mustard instead of fries.  You can get this wrap with either fried or grilled chicken, I had grilled and it was delicious.  I always enjoy their house salad as well; leafy green lettuce topped with carrots, raisins and sunflower seeds and your choice of dressing.

My friend ordered the fried chicken salad, again, very basic but still a solid meal with a lot of that leafy green lettuce.

The drink special on Fridays after 7pm was $3 well drinks, I enjoyed a refreshing pineapple and vodka.

The bar room can get a little smoky, especially on a weekend.  I've never had a problem with smokiness sitting in the non-smoking area and the music selection is decent. On Friday and Saturday evenings around 10pm they move some of the tables out of the dining area for live music performances. 

If you're in the Bellevue area and hunger (or thirst) strikes, go to Skinny Legs!
