This is an original Spokane Restaurant, and it has quite a history. The building itself, built in 1907, was originally a hotel, the St. Regis. It became the Onion, in 1978. It is filled with nostalgic things, like this 1937 Harley Davidson motorcycle, which, when it was new, cost $395.0o! Times have changed, but the Onion is still one of Spokane's favorite places to eat. We have two locations in town. This one is at 302 W Riverside Ave.
On to the food.....
Being as it was a chilly day, we ordered cider. I ordered apple and she ordered huckleberry. This was a nice treat on a chilly day!
Being as I was at the Onion, I figured the French Onion Soup was in order. I ordered the soup with a wheat roll, and a side salad with Blue Cheese dressing..
The soup was very cheesy.
My friend ordered a Roast Beef Sandwich... with cole slaw and fries. The fries were skimpy on the plate, but you could order more for free.
