Pegasus Restaurant

Review by: Allie Spangler

** THIS RESTAURANT IS PERMANENTLY CLOSED **

Pegasus Restaurant is a bright pink and purple diner off one of the old highways in Tacoma. It is located in the slightly run-down side of town, near manufacturing plants, the Tacoma Dome, and the Amtrak train station. Don’t let its surroundings dissuade you; this dive has been here since the early 70’s and continues to be a local favorite. The parking lot fills up at breakfast and when lunch regulars start to trickle in around 11 am. The feel is vintage diner, including friendly waitresses who call you pet names and constantly fill up your coffee mug and some seriously satisfying classic diner grub. Plus, there is a full service “Unicorn Bar” in the back.

One item you can’t miss? The chicken fried steak: it is gold and crisp, smothered in creamy, calorific gravy, accompanied by two eggs, crunchy hash browns, and a side of toast. The ground beef steak is another winner. It’s topped with dark brown mushroom gravy and comes with your choice of potato (fries, tots, or mashed with gravy), soup or salad, and buttered Texas toast. The coffee is adequate, although not strong enough to please a serious caffeine-hound.

Service adds special pleasure to a visit, for the staff treats you like family and makes the effort to tend to your every need. All fans of classic diner eats who travel by train to the area or attend a Tacoma Dome event should add the Pegasus to their itinerary – it will hit the spot.
