Roadhouses and Chinese (but not at the same time)

<p>Restaurants in Renton range from many locally owned places to national chain type ones. The Melrose Grill is fantastic for steaks and consistently gets great reviews. Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse has peanut shells on the floor but serves up a great burger and should be visited. Great diner food can be found at Tommy's Cafe which is the local favorite for value and service. Because of the Asian population in the Puget Sound area, you can expect to find any number of very good Chinese, Thai and Japanese places too.</p>
