The Day I Met Elvis

elvisDrop a quarter in the1959 Seeburg jukebox, select Hank Williams’ Hey Good Lookin’ and see what’s cookin’ at one of West Seattle’s best hang-outs, the Luna Park Cafe.

There are artery-clogging burgers and fries, heart-stopping hobos and piles, thick-slurry shakes and sweet, super-size sundaes.

The decor is an eclectic mix of 50s signage, old-school lunchboxes, artwork, advertising enamels and general junk and clutter.

The waitresses are smiley, patient and efficient and in some cases heavily pierced and/or tattooed.

It feels like the real thing, even if it ain’t, but the calorie counts mean you’ll have to ration your visits unless you’re planning on buying a whole new wardrobe.
