Old Neighborhood Grill
Long-time Fort Worth restaurateur Peter Schroder opened this old-fashioned diner in 1998. Located in the hospital district near downtown, the restaurant draws local residents, as well as hospital employees for lunch. Counter ordering from a chalkboard menu are reminiscent of days long ago. The intimate restaurant has limited seating and is fills quickly during peak hours. Breakfast offerings include the staples of pancakes, biscuits and gravy, waffles and omelets. The lunch and dinner menu includes everything from Chicken Fried Steak to Grilled Catfish and Meatloaf. Other favorites include salads, as well as a large variety of side dishes including Cheese Fries, Onion Rings, Hush Puppies, and even Black-Eyed Peas.
I love this place. Best CFS, it is huge, but they need to dish out more mashed potatoes. They also need to change the bread, dry wheat toast has got to go. Parking is kinda of messed up at this time due to road work.
Meh, it's not really all that great. I give it one star cause the waitress that took my order was super nice. However, I ordered my food like a fast food restaurant but I paid a pretty penny for it. I would rather go somewhere like Babe's Chicken and actually enjoy my meal and make it worth the money. They could do a lot better job with the atmosphere too, kinda a hole in the wall type place. I almost didn't want to stop there cause it looked kinda run down.
We live down the street from ONG and it is usually our first stop on Sat mornings. This particular Saturday was our anniversary and we told Peter when he greeted us as we walked up to the front door. Shortly before our food was delivered to the table, Peter came in with a Black Forest cake from Swiss Pastry Shop.(This is our all time favorite cake and we don't remember ever mentioning that to Peter) This is the typical atmosphere at ONG. Peter and his staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and important. The food is ALWAYS good and there is never much of a wait, but if there is, it is worth the wait. We highly recommend ONG for a great meal and wonderful service. I still want to know how Peter got that cake at 8:00 AM since Swiss Pastry wasn't open yet!
Breakfast at the ONG is a treat. The biscuits are some of the best you'll find. Places like this make you wonder why you ever eat at a chain like IHOP or others. You deal with an owner who is a guy living in the neighborhood just like you and get a better deal than at a chain. Support your local restaurants!
we were looking for a place to eat while a friend was undergoing surgery. Not knowing the area, we drove down 8th & turned on this side street where we came across the Old Neighborhood Grill. When we walked in an employee (poss Manager) greeted us warmly, welcoming us to the restaurant. We ordered burgers & fries. The food was brought to our table in a timely manner and it was fresh, hot and very delicious. We will definitly return to enjoy some other foods there
I've been a burger connoisseur all my life and I just don’t see how a burger could be made to taste any better than the ones served at ONG. My favorite is the (and it makes my mouth water just thinking about it) Bacon Cheese with Pepper Jack Cheese! Mayo on the side, fresh homegrown tomatoes, fresh lettuce, onions and pickles on a toasted bun! The burger patty itself just can’t be described other than pure ambrosia! You’ll never want to buy a fast food burger ever again. As for the décor and hospitality, you’ll swear you just stepped back in time to 1957. The” Old Neighborhood Grill” is a part of true Americana! Do you, your children, and/or grandchildren a favor and experience it for yourself. You will be glad you did.
I have been going to Old Neighborhood Grill since it opened and have never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and the service is great. The food is just what you would expect from a neighborhood grill. Old time comfort food and it never disappoints. While other places try to deliver Old Neighborhood Grill does! I moved out of the neighborhood some time back but still venture there at least every couple weeks. I hope they are around for a long long time!
