We were excited for our son to try Mr. Beast Burger but the server seemed like he’s not in the mood to get our orders. MrBeast burger came in the plate not in packaging even tho we asked for it to surprised our son. But the food is good dont get me wrong. Server need to smile and py attention.

Had Tucker's Veggies two days in a row. The biscuit wasn't fresh.Also felt cheated on food quantity. Asked that I want only one biscuit but substitute it with more veggies and tofu however the tofu and veggies quantity was unchanged.The other day for the same order they didn't include the fresh fruit which comes with it.

The brief encounter has been a staple in Bellevue for 20-plus years. The staff is friendly, the food of the highest quality and the prices are great. They do offer takeout, which has sustained been through the pandemic. Additionally there are tables outside that can be configured in four top or two top configuration. Safety procedures inside the restaurant itself or excellent.
