  • New to Maple Valley- MOD Pizza -modpizza.com/
  •  A+ on great crust, thin, soft, chewy, brick oven pizza done FAST and custom! The price is right and you can add WHATEVER you want! Don't miss a great(price) pitcher price. ANY PIZZA, SAME PRICE! I definetely am MOD!
  • Best Lemon Drop/Drinks- Hop Jackshopjacks.net/food/lunch-dinner/
    Ok, let's just talk about the martinis and lemon drops(yes, even a huckelberry lemon drop)served in the ice glass... let me just say you won't just get one. The guys won't feel left out with beer that is served so cold the taps are frozen over!
    The atmosphere is more like a strip mall than other Hop Jack's, but while you are there have the Chicken Quesadilla- chicken, carmalized onions, bbq and chipolte sauce ... I eat it for dinner.
  • Best Pizza- Toss Up! Well you name it, we have pizza! Farrellis, MOD, Frankie's, Papa Murpheys, Garlic Jim's, Papa John's.... And DO NOT MISS the Stella Fiori Wood Fired Pizza Truck when it's in "the Valley". 
  • So here are my favorite pizzas.
  • Farrelli's- James' Favorite (and the Fire Stix)
  • MOD- Lacy Sunshine (You want more cheese? Artichokes? Bacon? How about anchovies? Anything else is free!)
  • Frankie's- Do they still have taco pizza?  That's about it for me. 
  • Papa John's- Uhhhh, pepperoni.
  • Garlic Jim's- Sicilian, Queen Margarita, Chicken Bacon Ranch (Nutty Chipotle? Has anyone had this?)
  • Papa Murphey's- Ok, Im not huge on their tomatoe sauce, but oooooh jsut plain cheese with the white sauce.. you had me at garlic white sauce. On second thought, the Cowboy, is ok too. 
  • Stella Fiori- Wood Fired Pizza Food Truck-(Schedule)- Because it's good pizza, Good Ol' Cheese

  • Best Pho- Spring Kitchen www.springkitchenrestaurant.com/menu
  • Pho done right. I "might" have gone there two days in a row. Come gray days it soothes the soul. 

  • Best TeriyakiHimitsu  22125 Witte Rd SE, Maple Valley, WA 98038 (QFC Parking lot)
  • Sweet, great service. Great teriyaki. Nuff said. 

  • Best Mexican- Hacienda Del Mar 27433 Maple Valley Black Diamond Rd SE, Maple Valley, WA 98038
  • I love these people! The owners are so gracious, stop and talk to them for a second. Ask them about their amazing horses! And oh, eat too! Top notch standard dishes, but i love the Tacos al Carbon. Yum! 

  • Best Sandwich- Big Apple Deli bigappledelimaplevalleywa.com/
  • Complete with New York attitude and the stacked HIGH sandwich you would expect from a authentic new york deli, you won't regret hunting down this hidden gem! Pickles made in house, hot pastrami, knish... and paper towels at the table for the super chin mess, from such a huge sandwich. 

  • Best Breakfast-Gloria's 
  • Who knew that breakfast could be a fightin' words? But locals will tell you The Testy Chef is hands down the best. I have to tell you I'm partial to Glorias. Good ol' crispy hash browns, decent bloody mary's and breakfast like mama made. I ADMIT I haven't done breakfast at The Pancake House or Hop Jack's yet, both look great! 

  • Best Wine Bar-Davine davinemv.com/ 
  • When you talk about wine, you don't often get to mention the owners, but Ken and Cheryl Dunham are darling! They make the welcome felt! Their wines are outstanding and from cheese and meat platter to the Strawberry Blue salad, paninis you won't be disappointed! 
  • Honorable mention- Ristretto's www.ristrettoscoffee.com/ has a BEAUTIFUL building, great summer seating, and a better menu but the service is less personal and appealing.  

  • Best Beer Selection- Farrelli's
  • Where else can you literally pour your beer from you own tap at your table? Great selection, and assorted tables run a live tap! 
  • Try: Fire Stix(app), Gluten Free pizza crust, the Chop Chop salad, and "James Favorite" pizza www.farrellispizza.com/

  • I have a Million other recommendations in surrounding areas. Black Diamond, Issaquah, Enumclaw, and Covington all have some great eats! From the BEST Prime Rib(North Bend Bar and Grill), Steak House (Jak's), Brew Pups and more text or email me at anytime!
