Stepping into a restaurant is no longer just for the food, it's also about the experience. So, if you ever find yourself driving down Highway 101 in the Evergreen State, you should stop by this unique restaurant in Washington state, where you can not just order double-decker burgers but see walls covered in actual money! Fat Smitty's is truly something you've got to see to believe. 

Located in Port Townsend, Washington, this roadside diner serves up quintessential American food like loaded burgers and cheesy steak fries.

But that's probably not what people flock to this establishment for. It's for the quirky walls and ceilings dipped in $1 bills!

Customers are the ones who leave the currency behind. They're filled with funny things scribbled on them and it's definitely something to keep you entertained while you wait on your food. 

The peculiar tradition started in the late 80s when a salesman pinned up his business card and a dollar to the wall. Ever since most customers have carried on the tradition.

When the falls filled up, people began hanging money from the ceilings too! 

In fact, nearly 27 years after the incident, the owners took down the money (a whopping $10,316!) and donated it to charity. So, don't get any ideas to pocket some cash.

As if this isn't a quirky photo-op enough, there are also gigantic figurines of burgers, potatoes, cutlery, and a Pepsi bottle all carved out of wood standing right outside the door for you to fill your IG with. 

Although this spot is dipped in cash, the food is pretty affordable.

You can get an assortment of burgers, hand-cut chili cheese fries, chicken wings, onion rings, grilled cheeses and fish & chips ranging between $5.50 and $16. 

There's no booze on the menu, but you won't complain when you're sipping on their milkshakes and root beer floats. 

Either way, it's a fun roadside attraction to check off your bucket list. Because, how often can you say you ate inside a pile of cash and felt like a millionaire?
