My husband and I stopped here on President's Day. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food here. I had fried clams and fries. The clams were not like rubber bands as they can be. They were crispy fresh fried in clean oil....More

Don's is in downtown Puyallup on Meridian right across from the fairgrounds and it's open...I ate there today May 15, 2014. Great double cheese burger for a good price. I'm going back.
