At only three years old, Stoke's Grill has built a devoted following on a foundation of friendly service and a menu that blends classic with creative. Like the batter-dipped stoplights of Venice, Stoke's fries come in a palatable palette of colors such as red fries covered in chili, cheese, and sour cream ($6.75), green fries with pesto, artichokes, and brie ($6.85), and yellow fries ($5.95) with cheese, bacon, and ranch. Soups ($3.45/cup, $4.25/bowl, $10.25/quart) are homemade daily, and Angus burgers ($7.45–$7.95) are cooked fresh to order. Pay homage to simian amputees with the Monkey's Fist pretzel sandwich, featuring ham, bacon, provolone, lettuce, tomato, and homemade ranch ($7.65). Mollify bovine dinner companions with the Saveacow specialty sandwich, a chicken, pesto, bacon, tomato, and swiss cheese concoction on a kaiser bun ($7.45), or opt for the classic fish sandwich, which presents fish breaded and paired with cocktail or tartar sauce ($8.95), just as it's found in nature.
