JR’s Grill in Colleyville has been open a little over a month now so we figured it was time to give them a try. Given that we are huge fans of JR’s Steakhouse (located about a quarter of a mile away) we could not wait to get in there.
The amazing thing is JR’s Grill manages to capture some of the same feel from the Steakhouse. The lighting is somewhat dim. There are tons of booths to sit in and enjoy dinner. And like the steakhouse there are two distinct areas of the restaurant. There is a main dining area and also a separate bar area which is filled with flat screen televisions and two pool tables in the back. We love the pool table idea by the way. No one else does this (at least no one that we can think of).
Even though JR’s Grill is a bar and restaurant we found it to be very family friendly. The overall menu is great. It is exactly what you would expect with burgers, sandwiches, BBQ ribs, and tons more. The burger list is long and diverse. The list includes the Monster, Tijuana, Diablo, Prime Filet Buger, among others.
We love a good burger around here so we gave JR’s Cheeseburger a try. We were not disappointed. The burger we had will definitely be in the running for the best burger in the area when we update our best burgers in the Grapevine area article. We also tried the Smoked Baby Back Ribs which were great as well. These are not fall-off-the-bone ribs. They are different, but are very good. The ribs had a great smokey flavor that we loved. And the kids meal which was just grilled chicken and veggies was also very well prepared.
Part of the appeal of JR’s Grill is that is a locally owned (non-chain) establishment with a lot of personal touches. It is really hard to describe, but the feel of the restaurant is so unique. JR’s just has a way of providing a high quality meal in a great atmosphere.
We are not really into ranking our favorite places, but if we did JR’s Grill would be on that list. We can not wait to get back and spend some time exploring the rest of the menu. I’m thinking the Prime Time Filet Burger is up next.
