Up in the PNW there is a popular fast food seafood spot called Ivar's. I'd say it's the go to for the majority of people, but if your in the city of Graham in Pierce County, WA, then this is the place to go. I must first start off by saying that I've only been to Ivar's once. It's not bad, but it wasn't very impressive either, which is why me and my wife only have gone once.
The portion sizes at Oliver's are excellent. They don't overdo it, but they definitely don't skimp out on you. The fish tacos as seen up above are a really good size. I eat a ton and these 2 tacos will fill me up. This is usually my go to, but this was my wife's order. My order was the shrimp sandwich that I tried for the first time on this occasion and did not disappoint.
This fish or whatever other dish you order that fried always comes out crispy and even after taking it home when we order to-go (it's about a 10 minute drive), it still stays pretty crispy. I'm particular about my fries...i mean chips...and Oliver's are alright. Wife likes them, but if I had to choose, give me some of them Golden Arches fries.
Anyways, if you find yourself out in Graham, WA heading your way to hike the trails of Mount Rainier (Oliver's is on the drive up there), then this is a spot to definitely consider.
Hope you enjoyed!
