Chef and owner Vic Amereno crafts Southwestern-influenced comfort fare including juicy burgers, sandwiches, homemade chili, and gourmet salads that have earned the casual eatery hidden gem status by CTbites.com. A side of cilantro-lime slaw quells oral infernos after a bite of the grill’s eponymous burger, which is laden with fresh-roasted jalapeño, avocado crema, and melted cheese ($7.50). Egg sandwiches ($2.50–$7.95), omelets ($4.75+), and wraps ($6.50) roust appetites during breakfast, and lunch options include cooked-to-order cheesesteaks ($5.95+) and a bountiful salad bar ($6.95+) that boasts more than 40 toppings and eight homemade dressings.
Catered fare can be delivered directly to the office or home for those glued to computer monitors or velcroed to coworkers. At lunch, marinated chicken and steak mingle in a fajita bar and make googly eyes at fixings such as shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, and salsa all giggling in the corner ($12.99/person). A breakfast buffet with assorted pastries and bagels, fresh fruit, and juices ($7.99/person) boosts morning-meeting productivity and provides people with the energy required for a full day of squeezing tears out of ballpoint pens.
