Happy Hour of the Week: Serratto

There’s no value like value

Hours to be happy

In terms of price, happy hour should feel a little like 1982. The best happy hours should feature high-quality fare at prices that seem out of place in the modern world: one where twelve-dollar burgers and ten-dollar cocktails are the norm. This is why there are few better places to spend your happy hour dollars than Serratto on the corner of NW 21st and Kearney.

This longstanding Mediterranean-themed neighborhood eatery serves up high-quality fare in entree-sized sharable portions every day from four to six for prices so cheap they seem unreal. For six bucks, Serratto’s burger is in a class of its own with giant slab of ground beef, Neuske’s bacon, thin fried onions, white cheddar, and giant mound of housemade fries. Another four bucks gets you a generously portioned housemade Caesar salad dressed in a perfect balance of anchovy, garlic, and lemon. There’s also large wood-fired pizzas, manilla clams and fennel sausage in a sop-worthy garlic brine, and a giant portion of hummus and flatbread for four dollars.

Serratto features happy hour every day of the week. Trust me, you can do no better.
