Skillet: The Saga Continues

posted by on October 3 at 11:23 AM

Everybody loves Skillet (more here), Seattle’s mobile home for finer street-food dining (i.e., “The Burger” with bacon jam, blue cheese, and arugula; Thai coconut soup; crispy artichoke hearts with chipotle aioli). But no one can eat there.

First Skillet got shut down by the health department.

Then Skillet was away for a week catering a photo shoot for Harley Davidson in Los Angeles.

Now: “…this morning on the way to Terry Ave., the back end of the Airstream dislodged itself from the frame of the trailer. We are working on getting it fixed right away…. it looks as though this week is out. Our apologies for the roller coaster ride, and we will be up and running again as soon as we possibly can.”


Poor Skillet.

Screw you, Andy. I was planning on checking it out Friday in Ballard. Shit.

Maybe they're delightful as can be, but these:

- Handwashing facility not working
- Excessive red critical violations

do not a sympathetic situation make. Yeesh.

i'll stick with the roach coach in Shoreline, thanks.

Wah. I'd driven down to Terry Ave to find Skillet, and spent 15 min wandering around the Thomas/Terry intersection, wondering where the hell is it?

(I'm the kind of person who *does* miss big ass things standing right of him, which is why I was being particularly mindful.)

I'm not worried about health code violations. I eat at Ballet, after all.

no, not "everyone loves skillet"

a couple of your staffers do and decide to shove it down our fucking throats every chance you can.

Move on to a new darling, please.

The health picky! Come on, they're serving out of a mobile home...stop being so uppity and give us our crispy artichoke hearts!
