grub Burger & Bar new Butler plaza winner
It had been a whirlwind week of lunches and dinner for the GLOB Master. It seemed like every meal was better than the last. There I was standing in front of the new grub Burger and Bar dreamily thinking of burger with unique names like: Bacon Love #9, Mac 'N' Cheeseburger, You're My Boy Blue and the Hippie Chickpea Veggie burger.
I like to think of myself as a good student of today's lunch time menus. After a serious perusal of the interesting online menu the day before lunch I quickly picked out my Friday birthday lunch. We will talk about my lunch order later on GLOBer
No doubt about GRUB being a big box corporate lunch stop. Celebrating five years since starting their first burger place in College Station, Texas.
From the GRUB BURGER & BAR website:
"You can go to a bunch of restaurants and get a burger and fries," College Station grub manager Jimmy Loupe says, but it's Grub's fun, laid-back and creative atmosphere that's really worth celebrating. He credits this positive atmosphere to the great people Grub employs. From the cooks and dishwashers to the servers and bartenders."
It must be working GLOBers. Walking into grub for lunch I was warmly greeted by every grub burger uniform I encountered. And the GLOB Master felt like each friendly greeting was an honest, friendly, considerate.
I was early and had the pleasure of Meeting Zachary at the bar who possessed a vast collection of IT, computer Tech ideas, and online web design.
That was just the start as we stood in line waiting out turn to order when Jordan, image left. gave the impression she was a long lost friend. That was when grub Manager Jared lizak walked up with Nina wanting to know where was Mike, the Birthday boy.
OMG with all the special attention we moved through the food line quickly and found a table close to the windows.
The grub menu is categorized into burgers, sandwich & tenders, salads, sides, shakes, snack and drinks.
This was lunch with my Entomology / Nematology pals Jane medley, Kathy Milne, and her husband Dave. And I appeared we cover the entrees well with three burgers and a salad between us:
I started us off with a bowl of delicious Brussels Sprouts topped with ancho lime vinaigrette, and queso fresco. ($4.95). The image above does not fairly treat what were perfectly cooked sprouts with a tangy sauce, tart queso flavor, and magnificent tasting Sprouts.
Dave opted for the Ahi Tuna Bowl of seared Ahi Tuna, bacon, black bean & charred corn medley, lettuce, campari tomatoes, avocado, queso fresco, sprouts & ancho lime vinaigrette. ($10.95(. Dave was generous enough to share his tuna that was absolutely heavenly. That is an impressive, electable looking salad to consider for my next grub lunch. How good was the Ahi Tuna GLOBers? It was eaten BEFORE I could grab this image . . .
Kathy chose the Jive Turkey Burger. an awesome looking melted cheese delight sandwich with Jive Turkey ground & pesto seasoned turkey burger, bacon, Swiss, sprouts, avocado & chipotle aioli on a wheat bun. ($8.50). Kathy's lunch included some of the biggest, yummiest looking Onion Rings I have seen in some time.
Jane ordered the Wild Caught Salmon burger with hand-chopped wild caught salmon and ancho chili burger, avocado, black bean & charred corn medley, tequila lime aioli & fresh cilantro on a white bun. ($8.50). Kudos to grub and their tassty Sweet Potato Fries.
Being adventurous Jane and I decided to share sammies and I gave her half of my California Chicken Sandwich with grilled chicken breast, bacon, Swiss, sprouts, avocado & chipotle aioli on a wheat bun. ($9.95).
Finally be sure to check out the Milk Shakes list of hand Spun, and Spiked shakes including the Dirty Kitchen Sink with chocolate vodka, pretzels, peanut butter, salt, butterscotch sauce, caramel sauce, chocolate chips, coffee grounds & potato chips. Great Gosh A mighty! It was my birthday so the GLOB Master tried the standard chocolate shake. ($4.95).
There is a complete menu at the restaurant link at the bottom of this page.
There was some spectacular flavors on our table including the Ahi Tuna, crunchy, yummy onion rings, and the chipotle sauce on my chicken sandwich. Jane Salmon sandwich was tasty, however I think she got the better deal as my chicken sandwich was a fives tar winner in my book. The Chipotle sauce must have been home made because it screamed my name in every bite. NOTE TO DIABETES GODS: I only, reluctantly. Ate half of the hamburger bun.
grub was busy for lunch. The lunch entrees were excellently delicious. We had a nice table and friendly service that kept us in a very good mood.
I'm going back to GRUB Burger & Bar. It is right on Archer Rd just past the SW 34th St., Archer Rd intersection.
