Southwest Grill is a casual, limited service restaurant with great food and cool atmosphere.Our preparations are fresh, savoury and filled with great southwest flavors like chipotle peppers, grilled tomatoes, and lots of avocados and lime. We make our food from scratch, like boiling our chilis for enchilada sauce and rolling Moreour own tamales (that's alot of work!) But our food shows what a difference it makes.Our values are to serve great, high quality food for reasonable prices, respect our customers and our employees equally and treat everyone like we would like to be treated.

When closing time rolled around and I noticed that there were leftovers of almost everything, I knew something was up.Truth is, the food just isn't remarkable. Our Tex-mex style "make your own fajita" station has beef, chicken, rice, beans, bla bla bla. Everything was overcooked, and even the salsa wasn't spicy -- a real travesty! Full review

Be careful here!I was hoping to go to the Hawaiian BBQ spot next door, but they are closed on weekends. I figured, Southwestern food isn't so common around here, so why not give this place a try? Service was lukewarm … Full review

I should have trusted my intuition.The first time I went, I got a burrito, can't go wrong with that... it was just mehh... not too tasty. Then on my second trip I decided I would try … Full review
