People's Pub (Ballard)
5429 Ballard Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98107
Every seat in the bar of the Ballard institution the People's Pub is occupied by congenial types hoisting pints of beer and eating, eating, eating. A plate of the deep-fried pickles and a pint will erase anything bad from your mind, at least temporarily, and when it comes to the kind of hearty fare necessary to power through dark, cold winters, this is the place. The goulash soup—thick, paprika-colored, with chunks of beef and pieces of spätzle suspended in it—is good; the Wienerschnitzel is epic. The decor is pubby, for the people; look for the flag (for a German soccer team, maybe?) depicting the extremely muscular rooster, glowering directly at you while feeling his immense bicep with a weird, feathered hand.
