In your own words, how would you describe yourmenu?
Patriot Grill offers a variety of familiar American grilled and fried items with a common theme: healthy portions of delicious food cooked to order and served hot. The menu includes fresh-cooked traditional and gourmet cheeseburgers including the Patriot Sausagecheeseburger, bite-sized boneless fried and grilled chicken, fried catfish and cheeseburger steaks, fresh cut fries, home-style okra and other sides, and drinks such as sweet tea, frosted mugs of root beer, cherry limeades, and black cow shakes.
Are there any dishes on the menu you consider to be a hidden gem?notnecessarily the most popular, but surprisingly delicious?
The Breakfast Melt is a breakfast buffet stacked on a plate. It is a sausage burger topped with grilled ham, bacon, three kinds of cheese and an egg that is served on Texas toast and covered with pepper gravy. We are also one of the few places in the area to offer freshly grilled Siegi's Bratwurst, served with our own grilled onion and sauerkraut topping. Another is the Swamp Sauce Boneless Chicken Wings, a smokey jalapeno sauce that is made locally and is very unique to Patriot Grill. Lastly, I would add the Black Cow milk shake. It is made with root beer and a touch of chocolate. The Black Cow tastes like the bottom of a root beer float after the ice cream has melted and mixed with the root beer.

Patriot Grill is simple and clean with white walls and a couple of old neon signs that we have refurbished. Our decor is based on traditional American patriotism, which includes flags, tributes to our veterans and Founding Fathers, and some Route 66 memorabilia.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn'tcover?
We love the big eaters and offer double- and triple-stacked burgers and sides such as chili cheese fries and bacon cheese tots, but we also offer delicious grilled chicken salads, chicken sandwiches and a low carb plate for those who eat lighter.
At Cafe USA, chefs pay homage to the hearty, fried fare of America, but not the heavy grease of some of the country's signature grub. In oils free of unhealthy trans-fats, the cooks sear pure ground beef into burgers before packing them between toasted buns or the crispy ends of a Davy Crockett patty melt. Their USA specials actually hail from beyond domestic borders, including stir-fry and spaghetti with meatballs. At breakfast, they flip fluffy pancakes and press tasty waffles or load plates with Country Debris, a m?lange of biscuits, home fries with gravy, bacon bits, sausage, eggs, and silver-dollar pancakes. A party room and banquet room accommodate private festivities, such as celebrating the number of rooms that exist with a cake that hilariously displays a square with five toes protruding from one side.
It’s been a long time since Jack Kerouac or Ken Kesey’s band of merry pranksters made their way down Route 66, but at small, cozy points along the way, driver’s can get a glimpse into the past. Fat Charlie’s Grill is one of those spots. Old-fashioned diner fare and friendly service welcome visitors each morning as line cooks scramble up three-egg omelets and assemble their signature crashes—hash browns topped with eggs, veggies, meats, and AAA cards. Their artful arranging of toppings continues into the lunch and dinner hours, with a host of quarter- and third-pound burgers hoisting traditional bacon, mushrooms, and homemade chili or unconventional fried eggs, peanut butter, and country gravy. For the young at heart, or the sweet at tooth, they blend handmade ice-cream shakes with any ingredient you choose.
The first IHOP?the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin?opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001. Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.
Since 1982, the pie architects at Simple Simon's Pizza have assembled casual Italian and American fare at 240 locations scattered across 10 states. Fresh veggies, quality meats, and blankets of cheese spread atop pizzas and fortify the golden-brown walls of Calizones. Breadsticks sheathed in even more cheese accessorize meals, and a smattering of mild-to-spicy wings helps to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the girls from the boys if they get too rowdy at coed canoe camp.
At Chisum Trail BBQ, smokers churn out delicious barbecue fare and Cajun cuisine ranging from pulled pork and sliced brisket to boudin sausage and jambalaya. Specialty platters populate the menu, available in combinations of choice meats such as bologna, smoked sausage, and ribs. Pit chefs also pile proteins together to craft signature sandwiches such as the hulking Widow Maker, which mixes hot links, bologna, beef, and pork with Chisum Trail’s uniquely seasoned barbecue sauce.
