It's not uncommon to hear that “the only decent food in Lake Forrest Park is at Briley’s.” But Briley's is much more than the least-worst spot in the area - they serve some very tasty barbecue worth biking on the Burke-Gilman to or from Seattle for (get the brisket), there’s a great patio, and the view of Lake Washington is pretty sweet. We’ll admit, though, that we’d rather just stare at the incredible cornbread all day.
