The Grill on Main has been thru several transitions, and the most recent is a winner in my book. Opened in 2010, and now managed by former Arnold Palmer’s Restaurant Executive Chef, Brett Maddock.
My husband Bill and I have been back several times (restaurant reviews are hard work after all), and we’re happy to report we recommend The Grill On Main, especially with a new summer menu.
Classic American Fare In Old Town La Quinta
The Grill On Main features classic American fare, specialty microbrews, a nice wine list and a full bar. Open Tuesday thru Sunday during the summer season, The Grill serves lunch, dinner, and on the weekends features a Sunday Brunch. The Grill offers live music on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Happy hour is a big draw between two and seven every night. The Happy Hour menu features everything from Tempura Cauliflower with a Lemon Aioli, Carne Asada Nachos and Hot Wings to Fish & Chips and Burgers. My favorite is the Chicken BLT Salad with Greens, Avocado, Onion, Grilled Chicken & Blue Cheese Dressing. It’s a very generous portion and at eleven bucks it’s a bargain!
I’ve also sampled the Bacon-Mac and Cheese in the past and do I have to say anything more? Bacon? Mac and Cheese? It’s all good!
Fish & Chips In Beer Batter
Bill has enjoyed the Fish & Chips in beer batter. Light and crunchy served with Fries, Coleslaw and Tartar Sauce. The Grill Burger is an excellent choice served with Cheddar, Grilled Onions, House Bacon and Fries. The Albacore Tuna Melt with Cheddar and Tomato served on Toasted Sourdough is also tasty.
We usually enjoy our dinner with a nice Acacia Unoaked Chardonnay or the Rombauer Chardonnay. Both are excellent choices on a warm summer evening.
6 Kinds of Taco’s On Taco Tuesday’s
Locals love Taco Tuesday’s. The Grill offers a choice of six types of tacos for just $2 each. A very tasty deal!
