Rizzo’s French Dip in Ballard
I had been looking forward to going to Rizzo’s for a long time. I adore a good French Dip. Sadly, it didn’t live up to the reviews I’d read or my expectations.
The bread was soft (though in the 3 minute drive to get home, got squishy on the bottom), the macaroni side dish was fair, and the meat was fairly tender.
Don’t get me wrong… I was starving. I ate the whole thing. But I wasn’t terribly impressed with their au jus. Nor was I pleased that in my to-go order, they dipped the bread for me, rather than keeping it on the side. In 3 minutes, the bottom of the bread was super squishy, and I still felt like I needed more au jus to dip it in.
It was okay, and it will do in a pinch if I have a wicked craving, but it wasn’t my favorite.
