As close as Ellensburg is to Yakima and as much as our radio stations reach Ellensburg, we certainly don't give it as many props as it deserves. Ellensburg is a wonderful town, a wonderful community that's more than just a row of gas stations off the freeway.

I'm trying to make it a point to find new restaurants for myself every time I'm in the area and I stopped by one that had amazing food and drinks and already can't wait to go back.

If you find yourself in Ellensburg, just off the freeway exit, once you pass all the gas stations and fast food joints you'll find Roadhouse Grill. This is where we went the other day.

The dish I wanted to focus on was their Prime Rib Dip.

There are several places in the Yakima Valley that do a French dip sandwich. And what's to love about a French dip? Sliced meat, melty cheese, sometimes they have caramelized onions on a roll or bun and you get the au jus for dipping into it. It's amazing and interactive.

This Prime Rib Dip at The Roadhouse Grill in Ellensburg is just next-level with the quality of meat and the bun it's on. the skinny french fries were an amazing touch as well as my favorite part about fries at any quality restaurant is the crunch and with these fries it's mostly crunch. It's great.

If you find yourself in Ellensburg, or maybe you live in town, The Roadhouse Grill has a great Prime Rib Dip you should try. Paired great with an IPA of which they have several.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
