If you want to trick someone into thinking that you’re cooler than you are, take them to Dottie’s Double Wide. Behind a janky trailer door in White Center, this place is like a weird ’70s mod trailer park garage sale with twinkly string lights and portraits of naked women, only indoors. From the De La Soul vinyls playing to their horchata white Russians, we could spend hours here, especially because the crowd is fun without getting too rowdy. Plus, the snacks are like what would happen if a combination KFC/Taco Bell were run by Culinary Institute grads who smoke a ton of weed. Get the fried chicken tacos and a basket of curly fries.
