Greg's Grill - Bend Oregon
Greg's GrillCould there be a bigger restaurant than Greg's Grill in Bend? Who are the ad wizards that came up with this one? I'm a big guy but I feel like Gimli walking through the Great Hall of Minas Tirith when we are escorted to our table. It's that big.
These photos are from our first visit to Greg's Grill and we have been there once more since. On our first trip we tried the lettuce wraps. I know that it looks like we have already dug in here but that's how they serve em. In two of the lettuce cups you have rice and the lima bean salad. I actually can't remember if that was BBQ Pork or Chicken but it had mushrooms in it. Eh. Not a huge fan of fungi in my food.
How lame is it that I can't remember what it was yet I'm writing about it? Pretty lame, don't listen to me. I liked the wraps, I remember that. They weren't as good as at PF Changs by any means but they were pretty good.
I also had a cup of chowder. After a bite I asked the waiter (who looks like a young Hugh Grant ... not that I am in the Hugh Grant fan club or anything .... damn it) if it was low fat. He assured me that it was, he said that there actually are zero calories. So there you go, eat all you like.
The chowder was so thick and creamy, I could feel the fat on my thunder thighs multiplying with each delicious spoonful.
While we looked over the menu we almost got two dishes that were NOT off the grill. Then we realized that we couldn't do that. Not on our first visit. I mean why go to Greg's GRILL if you don't get something off the grill? Reminded me of when Jerry ordered "just a salad" at a steakhouse.
So the wife go the chops with potato pancakes and I got the NY strip and the baked sweet potato.
That's a lot of food. For the money I think Greg's Grill is a great deal. Greg's Grill - Great Deal ... print it. I could go without the obligatory vegetable ensemble but I get why they add it. While the wife liked her potato pancakes, she couldn't keep her damn fork out of my brown sugar butter that was quickly melting away into the sweet potato canoe. Maaan, that shit is like crack! Sorry for the cursing but it really is that good. I started getting the junky itch ten minutes after all the crack butter was gone...and I'm pretty sure the wife had cut some lines while I wasn't looking.
Our meat was prepared perfectly. My steak was rather good and the wife's chops were as well. All in all the meal was pretty good. For the money the portions are huge and I think it's worth it. I'd probably skip the appetizer menu the next time and save a few bucks since your main dish will be plenty.
