The grill gurus at Eureka! Grill exhibit their flame-wielding prowess while preparing made-from-scratch dishes devoid of MSG, high fructose corn syrup, or trans fats. Varied dinner and lunch menus offer scrumptious selections that appease palates pining for poultry, like the smoked half-chicken ($12.99) brined for moisture retention, cured over fruitwood, and served with potatoes and a vegetable medley. The grilled New Zealand lamb ($24.99) sates sheep eaters hungry enough to devour singing sock puppets with flavorsome flock fare marinated in herb-heavy red wine and sprinkled with a mixed oil concoction boasting mint and basil. Those less interested in fire-licked aliments can muffle the moans from their digestion sacks with a pasta dish like the penne giardiniera ($8.99), a coiled amalgamation of imported noodles, garden vegetables, garlic, olive oil, basil puree, and asiago cheese. Regale fellow diners with the best ways to hunt and filet ferocious Romaine lettuce over a walnut and gorgonzola salad ($7.99), a leafy dish featuring sliced apples paddling in a sea of mixed greens soaked in balsamic vinaigrette and specked with oaky nuts and Italian cheese. Or, bolster meals with one of the many lively libations from the extensive drink menu.
Eureka! Grill boasts three different dining environments, including an intimate bar, an open dining area with many windows, and a sheltered patio for outdoor noshing. The modern décor lend this eatery an atmosphere of progressive elegance, perfect for a family meal, work outing, or propane tank juggling contest. Eureka! Grill claims there is plenty of parking, so diners can leave their quantum leaping pogo sticks home.
- I love this place! Been here several times. The atmosphere is pleasant. The staff is friendly, and most importantly, the food is great. – Ralph G., Yelp, 10/17/10
- A welcome spot on the west side. Friendly people trying to make a go of a non-chain restaurant in an often hostile environment. The food is good, and now there is live jazz on weekends. – Stephen Noe, Urbanspoon
