You never know who you'll be sitting next to at Grill, it could be a down-and-out slacker or it could be a senator. Maybe that's because it's open at all hours or maybe because it's an attraction in its own right. Just about everybody comes here. This is the kind of place where nobody thinks twice about ordering a bowl of Cap'n Crunch cereal and a beer for breakfast. Then you can stop in again at dinnertime for Smoked Salmon Pasta in a Shallot and Dill Cream Sauce. You'll also find those and everything in between.
The tator tots are awesome and the Pesto omelette's are excellent! Definitely worth the dough. Not to mention the free live entertainment while dining. I recommend a Pesto omelette with tator tots while listening to The Lemon Drop Gang. Jeff Justice. Born to judge.
The Grill is simply a terrible eating experience. During the annual Gem Show that takes place in Tucson, I was walking downtown and decided to go in with my girlfriend, but boy was that a mistake. What really got me was the staff. My server came off like he kinda had a screw loose. He was dirty, unattentive and just seemed really phony. I had to keep repeating myself, asking for a refill, which only came until we were nearly done eating. A lot of really deadbeat people congregate in there. It seemed like a drug deal was going on at the table behind us.
The quality of food to me was about average. I had a basic ceasar salad which ran me nearly 7 bucks and my girlfriend had a hamburger, which she said was tasteless and too soggy like it came out of a freezer. My chocolate milkshake was also really clumpy, like whoever made it didn't know how to mix it right.
What also concerned me was the cleanliness of the place. It did seem pretty dirty, even by my book, when I can most often ignore a dirty window or a few crumbs on the ground. The Grill is just plain dingy and slimy. I was kind of expecting a rat to crawl along one of the baseboards.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. It's a real weirdo place and the service and food just plain suck. I guess if you like eating expired, freezerburned food along with the company of a lot of posers drugheads and nuts, this is your place. For the rest of you who want to eat decent food with decent service, I'd avoid going to The Grill.
My wife and I went here on vacation and were warned that the staff can be rude by our hotel staff. There was about a 10 piece country band playing that had some fine musicians so we wanted to stick around for awhile and I wanted to find out the name of the harmonica player. This was about 10 PM not 3 AM. First we ordered iced tea and it had some kind of stringy slimy tea strips in it that the waiter tried to tell me was from being refrigerated too quickly after brewing. I've been drinking iced tea for over 40 years and have never seen tea like that. We had Coke or RC instead. Then we ordered burgers medium well. They served us the 2 rarest burgers I have ever had. For my coke refill they gave me cherry coke which I hate the taste of. Our waiter was very friendly so either they are very incompetent or they didn't want us there or both. I really wanted to like this place but I got the feeling that other drug related stuff was going on and they didn't want people they didn't know hanging out even though I've got long hair. My wife got sick and didn't eat red meat for 2 and a half weeks when I don't think she's gone 2 days without eating red meat in the last 27 years. This place is dirty and sleazy without being hip and the food is bad and the staff was friendly but horrible.
My friend took me here one day because I was hungry and I was about to faint. I should have fainted because the food made me want to expel. The establishment is freakin dirty and the service is HORRIBLE!!! I had to wait like an hour just for someone to come over and take our order. This place is also real shady. It's like eating in a ghetto Denny's. There's all sorts of stuff that goes on inside that I noticed. Lots of drunks and drug addicts. This place is like taking a tour through Compton, except it is much more cheesy and nasty. Don't come here!!! Everything about this place is like wanna-be bohemian alternative lifestyle crap. It is just a shitty hovel that serves crap from Fry's.
like the review says, you never know who you will meet, and occasionally you might see a couple bums asking you for money, but the food is awesome,the staff is awesome and the food is too die for, and cheap.
you just gotta go there to read the back of the menu. and attitude is okay there, and for friends who still smoke, they have a place, and they finally fixed the bathroom, at least the woman's, and it used to be a classic 50's diner, but is darker now. great food, and good coffee. sometimes music too. open all night. good value. and it's not THE grill, it's grill, just like it says up top here! don't you be askin' for cheese on your tater tots.
For God's sake, don't ever, ever, attempt to order Cheese Tots here. There is a warning on the menu not to attempt to order them, however, many uniformed visitors think this is some cute quirk. My limbs were severed and I was left to fend for myself after I ordered Cheese Tots. Save yourself! For God's sake, don't order Cheese Tots. I can't say more, as there are people listening now to everything I say, just save yourself and do not fall prey to the trap.
