Slow service considering how dead it was but I didn't have high standards for a sports bar in the middle of the day. Everything besides their onion rings was frozen, including their burgers which were not only frozen but way over priced. Back to the onion rings...they were decent but you better order two orders if your hungry...they were tiny and I might have had five of them on my plate. The place was decorated like a normal sports bar and looked pretty clean. Take a left or a right out the parking lot and within half a mile you'll pass sonic or burger king...either would a better value and quality.

Sorry that you had a bad experience on the day mentioned. Our servers are trained to get orders taken and delivered quickly, sometimes mistakes happen. As far as price we are priced for a burger, fries and salad....burgers are average +/-$8.00.....which is pretty reasonable considering food costs. I do apologize for your bad experience and will talk to everyone working June 15. Oh and our burgers come in fresh not frozen :).

The atmosphere at M&R Grill is relaxed sports bar. They have games on, but the volume of the TV's does not drown out everyone trying to have a conversation at the tables. The food is very good, I would say they have a very good cook, who can fry food, without having grease on everything when it comes to you. The wait staff are all college students, who seem to know the menu quite well. Give it a try.

My wife, two year old daughter and I have eaten here a few times. The kid's menu has good options with a great price. It is nice to go eat somewhere where kids can eat for several dollars. The menu variety is awesome. You can eat sandwiches, seafood, salads, chicken, hamburgers and so much more. We have never had to wait on a Sunday for lunch. The service is great even though the servers are younger- late teens and early twenties. Try it out- I am sure you will like it!

Pulled off I70 for lunch and decided to give this a try. Ordered the lunch special for $6.00 and rec'd a delicious chicken salad sandwich and fries. Food was great and service was excellent. Owner stopped by to check on us. Highly recommend this place.

Okay this place seriously needs to be on diners drive ins and dives. Nothing fancy in the furnishings which is just as it should be..High booths, beers and burgers to die for. Two of us got the pork tenderloin sandwich and 2 got wonderful burgers and we all got the cheese fries appetizer (which we NEVER do but saw them go out to another table and we had to try some!) A salad comes included in the price with your burger! Unheard of, right? There was no grease present on our food which again is unheard of when one orders burgers and pork. We were there for llate unch on a saturday. Next time we are going back for dinner and trying the steaks~they too looked amazing as they were coming out of the kitchen. Nice efficient employees....excellent prices!
