$13 at Fat Smitty's: The Most Republican Burger You'll Ever Have

Actual burger pictured after the jump.
What: The Fat Smitty Special (Double bacon cheeseburger with an extra bun, stacked high. Served with steak fries.)

Where: Fat Smitty's, 282624 US Highway 101 Port Townsend (This is the tip of Discovery Bay. You drive past it between the Hood Canal Bridge and Sequim/Port Angeles on your way to the Olympics.)

When: 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Thursday to Monday

Cost: $9.95

Note: I overheard a man in a wolf t-shirt talking about his buddy, Steve, who ate two Fat Smitty Specials the last time he was in.

A few words about Fat Smitty's: It's legendary. Next time you're driving to the Olympics, it's definitely worth a stop. Not only is the burger delicious -- I felt better after eating a Fat Smitty's Special than I've ever felt after a burger -- but the joint is a shrine to the military, the GOP, and the conservative cause. These photos tell the story better than I can.

The Fat Smitty burger is a life-size version of the monument out front.

And is served with steak fries.

The burger's height can be an issue for some people. But not this guy.

Mmmmm.

The restaurant's walls are covered in dollar bills.

And the odd family photograph ...

... and the occasional stray driver's license.

The staff of Fat Smitty's deserves a dozen of these for various victories.

If you think you've got what it takes, apply within.

But beware, they keep rather strange hours: 10:30 a.m to 6:30 p.m., Thursday through Monday.

As if there was any question.
