Emerald Downs, celebrated for its exhilarating horse racing and unique T-Rex and Bulog races, is now becoming renowned for its scrumptious food offerings. Good Day Seattle dispatched Brian MacMillan to delve into the culinary wonders available at the Emerald Downs racetrack.

During his visit, MacMillan met with Sally and Joe Steiner, proprietors of the Quarter Chute Cafe at the racetrack since 1996. The Steiner family has a long-standing association with horse racing, tracing back to 1933 when Sally's father triumphed in his first race at Longacres racetrack. Over the years, various family members have taken on roles as jockeys, trainers, and even contributed to the production of the movie Seabiscuit.

Over time, the Quarter Chute Cafe has evolved into a favored spot for both regulars and first-time visitors to the racetrack. Sally and Joe have cultivated a welcoming environment where the public can interact with the individuals behind the thrilling races. The menu offers a diverse selection of delectable options, ensuring all patrons find something to their taste.

When questioned about her top dish, Sally recommended the Country Fried Steak, accompanied by eggs cooked to order, a choice between hash browns or home fries, and bread or toast. MacMillan eagerly sampled the dish, exclaiming that it was 'so good' and brought back fond memories of home. He was particularly impressed with the crisp hash browns and impeccably cooked eggs.

Apart from taste-testing the food, MacMillan also had the chance to converse with some jockeys and interact with the horses. Despite the horses' reluctance to participate in media interviews, MacMillan eagerly anticipated posing some challenging questions to them. Good Day Seattle's feature on Emerald Downs not only showcases the action-packed races but also the delightful food options available at the Quarter Chute Cafe. If you're seeking an enjoyable day out this summer, Emerald Downs should undoubtedly be on your radar.
