After my experience at Durkin’s Liquor Bar, I knew I had to hit up their sister restaurant, Casper Fry. Casper Fry is known for their Big Time Southern cooking like Shrimp & Grits, Fried Chicken, Jambalaya, Hush Puppies, etc. I wanted DEEP south fried yum. However, they don’t serve most of these dishes on their Lunch Menu. They had a couple of southern favorites like their Gumbo, Po Boys, and Mac & Cheese so we settled for some of those. I totally get why restaruants offer a simplified lunch menu, I just wish I had known and I would have saved this outing for dinner. But that is my job right? To find these things out and tell y’all!
With that said, we LOVED THEIR BURGER. Please forgive me for I have sinned. Casper Fry’s burger belongs on my best burgers list. Just like Durkin’s, their burger is out of this world! It is oozing with cheese, flooded with flavors, and the sweet pickles add that extra crunch. If you are at Casper Fry for lunch, DEFINITELY order this burger. If you order the garlic fries, don’t expect them to be very garlicky. The Mac & Cheese comes out in a cute skillet dish so it stays warm and creamy. It doesn’t have any strong flavors, but a lot of people like their Mac & Cheese the classic way. Creamy and Cheesy and this is just that. The Gumbo was spicy with a nice smokey aftertaste and it was packed with shrimp. I also tried the Chicken Salad sandwich with pulled chicken, smoked pickled red grapes, candied pecans, shallot, mayo and molasses on wheat bread. It’s a nice, fresh, light lunch.
The decor in Casper Fry is Modern Rustic and it is gorgeous. It has a great Ambiance for a night out. They serve a large assortment of cocktails and drinks and they come highly recommended by a lot of the Spokane South Hill community. There is something about Perry Street that makes my heart swoon.
How did I not know they serve pecan pie?!?! As if I didn’t already make it clear that I need to go back for dinner, now I HAVE to! Pecan Pie is the way to my heart. Fried chicken and Pecan Pie… and this is why I created my favorite smoothie list. Everything in moderation, right?
Keep eating, Spokane.
And don’t forget to tell them we sent you!
