Prime Rib Dip Sandwich at Issaquah, WA Malarky's Sports Grill Awarded a 4 of 5 DeliciScore™ (Nice one!) on this 27th day of March, 2017 - A solid and large prime rib dip











The Setup

I had a nail in my tire and time to spend so I walked to Malarky's in Issaquah during lunchtime.  It's a typical sports bar and it was really quiet in there on a Monday.  But the place is clean and I wound up having a pretty good prime rib dip.  Enjoy!

Tasting Notes


  • Sad side salad with kind of old lettuce but nice that the meal comes with both a salad and fries.  Nice feature.
  • The salad only gets a 2 of 5. 
  • The sandwich was a good size and wide
  • The sandwich was fair, a 4 of 5.  It was buttered, toasted and good standalone
  • The meat was medium well and got a 3 of 5.  It was fine, there was some visible fat on it and that is fine 
  • The jus was good and salty and got a 4 of 5.
  • The jus, on neither cup one or cup two, was hot and therefore it loses points.  It still got a 4 of 5, which was good but it needs to be hot.  In general, the jus was herby, with a bit of an oily sheen and had great flavor
  • The place where I sat at the bar had bad lighting for photography 
  • This dip overall got a 4 of 5, so pretty good.

Summary 

  • Bread 4 of 5 for its size and quality
  • Meat 3 of 5 no too fancy prime rib but good for this sandwich
  • Jus 4 of 5 really good jus that they needed to get hotter.  Even the second serving was not hot.
  • Overall 4 of 5 this is a good and generous prime rib dip and they have other versions of dipped sandwiches on their menu as well
