We had some friends visiting from out of town and the last time there were here (maybe 2-3 months ago) we took them to True Food on Camelback. It was our first time to TF as well, and believe it or not, we left there hungry and drove through Culver's on the way home for a burger, fries and a shake. But I digress.
So now it's a new year and we're on a Paleo diet (my girlfriend and me). We could've gone back to TF, but since we didn't care for it the first time, why bother with a second visit? We've eaten in (ie., haven't been to a restaurant) the entire month of Jan, so on Jan 30, we decided to find a place that would be decent for our friends and we could stick to our Paleo. After a bit of research, learned that The Grind had one of the top-rated burgers in the city--perfect!
First of all, it's primarily a bar, not a restaurant. Take that for what it's worth. I merely point it out because it's not really a family/kid-friendly place to go. We didn't take our kids (thank goodness), and I really wouldn't ever. It's in a strip mall, right across the street from North (one of our fave Italian eateries prior to this whole stoopid Paleo thing).
All four of us ordered burgers. Mine came with swiss cheese (I ordered it without--not Paleo, so it immediately went back to the kitchen), my girlfriend's was *WAY* underdone--she ordered it medium and it came out rare, and neither one of our company finished either their burger or their fries. My girlfriend and I split an order of sweet potato fries and grilled vegetables (both Paleo). Neither one was anything to write home about.
The burgers are supposed to be organic, but I couldn't taste any difference. I found the place to be over-priced and over-hyped. We won't be returning.
