Local Dining in Ellensburg, WA
You know the feeling. It’s Friday night, you’re hungry, and your not in the mood to cook or have campus cafeteria food. Thankfully, when you're living at our CWU off-campus apartments, dining out is as easy as driving down the street. Here are a few of our favorite locals to help get you started.

Kabob House Ellensburg 
If you’re gearing up to get your Mediterranean fix, look no further than this spot. Of course, you’d be remiss not to try one of their namesake kabobs — there’s beef, chicken, lamb, and veggie to choose from — served on a bed of Greek rice, but that’s not all there is on the menu. You’ll also find falafel, gyros, and souvlaki, among other plates.

Cornerstone Pie 
When it comes to firing up some stellar pizza pies, this place does not mess around. The homemade dough is hand-stretched into 14-inch creations that include mouth-watering topping combinations like the tre fungi (a mix of portabella, cremini, and oyster mushrooms), Carolina pulled pork, and even a Thai pie (with sweet chili sauce and herb-roasted chicken).

The Red Pickle
It may be a restaurant on wheels, but don’t let that fool you: This place turns out some top-of-the-line sandwiches. (And they’re always parked at the same spot, so don't worry: You won’t have to go tracking them down at a different location each day.) On the menu, you’ll find sandwiches featuring crispy buttermilk-fried chicken, bratwurst, and juicy burgers. Don’t forget to throw on a side of rosemary french fries!

The Early Bird
Breakfast and brunch is the name of the game at this cozy eatery, complete with outdoor picnic table seating (that includes built-in “fireplaces” to keep warm on cooler days). Make sure you arrive hungry because you’ll find hearty dishes on the menu like biscuits and gravy, breakfast burritos, and Belgian-style waffles topped with Nutella and berries.

The Porch
Using the best, locally sourced ingredients lets this restaurant take American-style cuisine to another level. The menu is jam-packed with all your favorites — pasta, steak, burgers, salad, and more — cooked to perfection. For those with dietary restrictions, they’re even able to accommodate special requests, like gluten-free pasta.
