Every now and then a new bar opens that you just know will become one of your frequented locales. I drove by last week and saw construction on McKinney which piqued my interest, and after seeing The Patio Grill on Daily Candy, I decided I needed to try it.
When I walked into The Patio Grill there was construction all around as the owners prepared for the grand opening which will be in two weeks. I spoke with no fewer than three people at length before sitting down; quite a friendly bunch.
The workers outside were … wait for it, men … mounting a large screen for football games. As if strong drinks and sporting events aren’t enough, the waitresses and bartenders aren’t terrible to look at and are incredibly personable.
For the ladies: great people watching (it’s right on McKinney) and giant Jenga. I spoke with the “powers that be” and encouraged them to keep a Sharpie outside to break in the set – my block is pictured below! It’ll happen before too long anyway, ya?
While the menu is abbreviated until the official opening, we had the Portobello fries and they were delectable. They gave us a peek at the full menu and everything sounds incredible. The menu offers buffalo wings with DAMN sauce (among many others) – if you can eat all 10 wings with DAMN on them, your next drink is on the house; we tried some of the sauce … good luck.
Overall, a great night. I think everyone should make this porch a destination for the fall – and make sure you try one of their Three Olives Berry and Red Bull shots!
