I found this place during my lunch break, its definitely different from regular lunch places. It's more of a dive bar/restaurant, I have to be honest the place kind of freaked me out when I walked in because it was dark and people were drinking around noon but I decided to stay and try their food. Let me say I am glad I stayed and tried their chicken fried steak and fries. It's delicious. Also their club sandwich tastes great. They also serve breakfast all day, which is cool. It's one of my favorite places to eat at lunch. The prices are pretty decent, it's ranges from $5-$12.

What other dive and Seattle Institution gives you the best tuna melt under the sun and a waitress who makes one hell of a good bloody mary? Mecca is one of the best things about living in lower Queen Anne. If you haven't been here, go.

Pros: Fantastic diner food everytime, generous drinks

Cons: Parking might be a problem if you drive

Oh, the coffee at the Mecca is like rocket fuel, only stronger.
The drinks at the bar are equally as strong.
The breakfast menu is heart-stoppingly awesome.

My last visit to the Mecca was my last. All my friends and I wanted was some food and drinks. But all we got was the worst service (thanks in large part due to the lying, dimwitted, neanderthal bartender) I've ever had. Then, when I complained to the manager (I'm not convinced he really was the manager, but he claimed to be), he kicked me and my friends out. At that point the s--- h i t the fan, words were exchanged and I may have poured out my beer on the service counter. Anyway, the staffs' response was to follow us out on the street and try to start a fight. Really? Anyway, the place was once great - a true mecca of dive bars and diners, but now your better off going grabbing a d i c k's burger and heading to the Streamline. If you do go, I suggest the old dine and dash - they don't deserve your money!

this place is great... stand in line with a friend on a busy weekend morning and they'll let you know that any four top that comes in behind you will be seated first. i love such honesty! also, their scrambled eggs come with not one but two pieces of hair. and it's long hair! i can't wait to go back. this is the hippest place i've been in a while.

You'll probably get on well on a stop to its sister in dive bars down the road, the Mecca. The food's just as good and is a greasy spoon lover's paradise. Real food, real drinks, no funny business. The bar side's tiny but adequate to get your drinks poured with a hefty dose of what'll cure what ails ya.

Pros: Food, drinks, lively atmosphere,

Cons: Parking?, Divey if that's not what you're looking for, small bar,

In a place like Mecca, I expected frozen mozzerella sticks and greasy fries...but its exactly the opposite! They have my most favorite fries in the world -- they're brown and crisp and you get a ton of 'em for cheap. My standard is the club sandwich: thick cut bacon. I also like the tuna melt & dig the cole slaw. Oh! Oh! And the open faced turkey sandwich is better than my mom's Thanksgiving bird and comes on homemade egg bread, with mashers and genuinely good gravy, and really good cranberry sauce with actual chunks of cranberry. Dont stray from the greasy spoon: even the waitresses have told me the salads su!ck..

People will rave about their breakfasts, and with good reason. I had an amazingly thick blueberry waffle and real bacon. None of the flimsey, microwaved crap. The staff and customers were so nice that we went there three times in two days. We felt like regulars.

Pros: No nonsense bar., Great prices., Really nice people.

Cons: Street parking., Not for the squeemish

The Mecca has a fair share of star visits. Bands, actors, and other random famous people show up here in the wee hours.

and the price is right. they must be doing something right, because they've had virtually no turnover in staff in the 2 years i've been going there.
