Nice little deli tucked away

It is basically a little deli for the office building its located in, but it has good food at a reasonable price.

Josh the bartender was more than we could have asked for. We were the only ones in the place and he offered to stay (with a little tip involved) open for a while longer. I was very relaxing and we even got some awesome burger to take back to our room!

As this place is in the Lawrence Hotel where I'm staying I checked the online menu before going down to order something to bring back to my room. I went down & ordered the Philly Steak sandwich and was going to get a side of mac & cheese, however my server, Jason was more interested in ESPN and informed me... More

This place was amazing! They probably had the freshest vegetables I've ever had at a restaurant and everything off the grill was fantastic. The huge windows were great to gaze out of after a long day of sightseeing, and the waiter was incredibly nice. I was very impressed with Founder's Grill.

We pop in close to closing time and had burgers. They were good and prepared as asked. The server had been worked hard by previous guests but was polite and quick for us. This is within walking distance to the Holocaust museum and where JFK was Shot. We walked there afterwards. I would eat here again!

I had been traveling all day and did not want fast food or fancy food. I went to Founders Grill and had the most amazing Grilled Chicken, salad and a baked potato which was perfect! It was a fun atmosphere. I ate at the bar and met another traveler. The experience was fun and the food was great!

I visited Founders Grill twice because I was staying at the Hotel Lawrence, where Founders is located. I had a great burger and an excellent Deep Ellum Brewing Co beer while sitting at the bar. The bar tender was friendly and greeted me the next day remembering what kind of beer I liked and offering me a new one. Founders... More

The décor is slightly tired but the food and service were fine. A stone's throw from Union Station and about five minutes' walk from the Omni.
