Spud is the Restaurant of the Day
Check out Roadfood.Com's review of Spud Fish and Chips!
"Thank you, Wanderingjew! When our intrepid Roadfood friend offers eating advice, we pay attention; so even though we had a way-too-long hit list of Seattle-area restaurants and way too little time to sample them all, his suggestion that we head out to Kirkland for fish and chips sent other plans to the back of the eat-queue. We don't know how this little place previously eluded us. It has been a local favorite since 1935; and after a menu degustation, we'd rank it one of the region's musts...." -- Michael Stern

Spud Fish & Chips in Juanita has been a neighborhood, family owned landmark since 1969. We are located just across the street from the Juanita Beach Park and our meals are cooked to order. From our family to yours, we thank you for making our tradition such a success over the years.

Conquest of Seattle by Fish and Chips
For centuries past, fish and chips has been the popular stand-up-an-eat snack in England, similar to our hot dog or bag of popcorn. Street vendors and fish-and-chips shops, some of them doing business at the same old stand for a 100 years or more, have sold the delicacy to passers-by and after-theater crowds in Drury Lane and other colorful streets and towns of England.
Two brothers, Jack and Frank Alger, are credited with giving fish and chips its biggest boost in Seattle, however. The Algers formerly lived in Vancouver, B.C., and were familiar with the fish-and-chips stands at English Ban and Kitsilano Beach.
England-born Jack Alger wondered why similar stands wouldn’t go big in Seattle, especially along its beach drives. So, in 1934, he opened the first Spud Fish & Chips in a small, garage-type building on Alki Avenue. *

* Today the Alger's endeavor has grown to 3 Spud Fish and Chips locations; the original location on Alki Beach, Greenlake and Juanita Beach.
