Best of Spokane 2013: Best Guilty Pleasures

#SpoCOOL / Spokane /

Oh, you know what you like, and you voted for your favorites with glee in your heart. But! You also scored places you did not like, to the point we could almost smell the hatred.

Or was that actually hate?

Aren't these spots places you at least check out now and again? Don't you do so with just a little bit of guilt and a little bit of pleasure? Hey, we all do it. So with further ado, here's your top picks for top guilty pleasures.

Best Guilty Pleasures
1 - Hop Jack's
2 - Maya Earth Coffee
3 - COSTCO Pizza
4 - Lalo's Pizza
5 - Screaming Yak
6 - Pizza Pipeline

Their mugs are so frosty you have to wear a parka to drink beer from them. That was enough for Hop Jack's to receive the lowest average score. But hey, you still scored it, so you must have tried it, right? Right!

And high as pizza places scored overall -- two out of six hit the overall best of list -- three spots ended up at the bottom. (COSTCO is of course not a pizza place, but whatever.)

We're actually a bit surprised seeing Lalo's here. It's not a downright stellar spot, but it sure is better than the Pipeline. I guess the people has spoken, though, and we kind of respect that.

As for the others... Maya Earth Coffee is... Well, it is what it is. And the Yak isn't what it used to be, at least not after Winggate 2011.

Hey, these might not be great places, but we go there now and again, and we enjoy-ish them, and that's OK. No need to be too snobbish!
