Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. Let a sandwich cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $7 you get $15 worth of soup, sandwiches, wraps, and more at Stoke's Grill in the North Hills.
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.
Grilled wraps, quesadillas, salads, and sides round out a menu of more than 50 items. A family-oriented outlook and homey atmosphere complement the edible enticements, distinguishing Stoke's Grill from the sterile, industrial soup-and-sandwich shops popular on moon colonies and at summer discipline camps for children and dogs.
- There is an art to making a really good sandwich, and two people who have mastered it are the husband-and-wife team of Jason and Amy Stoeckle. – Angelique Bamberg and Jason Roth, Pittsburgh City Paper
- Stokes is your modern sandwich shop. Lots of options and the food is awesome. I have tried about 6 sanwiches [sic] and I have loved them all. It's a must stop in the north hills. – Nate Dufresne, Urbanspoon
