We went to the Grotto after church today. We had the blue cheese chips which are homemade and we also had a cheese pizza. Was a pretty decent afternoon spot.

We stopped by on a whim and were disappointed to see the "fast food" counter at the front. We were hoping for a good sit down spot to enjoy each others company and some delicious food... And that is just what we got! Don't let the fast food feel steer you away. The food was absolutely phenomenal. We especially loved... More

Came across this place when visiting a friend. Loved it ever since. We are from Edmond and whenever we travel this direction, we make sure to stop. It is affordable and is better than normal fast food fare. The blue cheese nachos are a must as you wait for your food. Just enough for a family of four to split.... More

Recently visited Springfield to see my sister we went to the Grotto twice for lunch. You place your order at counter and they bring to the table, the drinks are self serve. I enjoyed it. they have a great half pizza with salad as well as burgers and good sides. The sweet potatoes fries were really, really good!

My girl and I were looking for someplace new to eat while we were running errands in Springfield. I am glad we ran across this place. It was around 1 PM and it wasn't really all that slow. Getting through the order line was fairly fast and efficient. I got a Chicken Avocado sandwich and it was very good. The... More

This place has a good mix of American food and pizza. Nice atmosphere and a good place to take a casual date.

We picked it out of the 417 magazine and were not disappointed. We had pizza, chicken and flat bread with Hummas and salmon and all were really great. The place is really clean and neat but it's the food that stands out. We will come back.

Nice. Had a short wait as the place was pretty busy and had a line. You order, they give you pager to put on your table so they can find you. It was clean and staff friendly. I ordered the Margherita pizza which was good. Big enough for two or three, depending how hungry you are. Food was enjoyed by... More

Pulled up 8 minutes til close and the women was locking the door tried to stop her to ask her if we could get a Togo order and got nothing back but a terribly dirty look. Looks like my business will be going else where.

Great food. Nothing is bad on the menu. You have to keep going back just to try more things. Great for lunch.
