National mom and Pop Business Day is coming up on Thursday, but I couldn’t wait to salute my favorite Mom and Pop Business in Yakima.While Yakima has many family owned businesses that would fit the “Mom and Pop “catagory, my favorite has to be Famous Burger and Terriyaki at 4th and West Lincoln.

I’ve seen this place described as a “hole in the wall”, a “hidden gem”, and the “friendliest place in town”.  It’s probably all of those things and much more. The couple that owns and operates FB&T, Cambodian natives Steve and Lee, really work hard 6 days a week to serve a very loyal local following. From burgers that rival the gourmet burger chains at nearly half the price, to a variety of SE Asian inspired terryaki stir frys, to that Viet Nam signature soup,  pho’. All with an infectious, smiling hospitality. Just look at all of the well wishes and reviews people jot down and slide under the glass table tops.

Steve and Lee’s Famous Burger and Terryaki fits the bill as a true ” Mom and Pop” Business.

What are some of your favorites in the valley?
