After many days on the road, we were delighted to find a lunch spot that served something other than a sandwich with fries. Both the chicken and beef kabobs were delicious. The meats were juicy and the vegetables fresh and tasty. Patrons can watch the assembly of the skewers, as well as the grilling process. A side of rice completed a healthy meal for a reasonable price. The restaurant is a few miles off the expressway (in town), but the short is drive well worth the experience.

On a Montana vacation we stayed in Butte at the historic Finlen Hotel and asked several locals about the best steakhouse in town. The majority local vote was for the Mesquite Grill and it was only 2 blocks from our hotel. After staying in a couple small towns we were hungry for some real food in a nice restaurant. The 4 of us ordered steaks and they were superb and cooked to perfection! Big delicious steaks that covered our plates, served with potato, salad, and great local beer. We will eat here whenever in Butte again.

I have gone here for occasionally for the past 7 years. The food is good, the kababs are great and so is the pasta. Their onion rings are the best I've ever had, however, I've usually looked at the healthier option which the kababs are and the ceasar salad is amazing as well. If you want a healthy dose of protein and some veggies, this is the way to go in Butte. However, the service is inconsistent, sometimes the waitresses aren't the best.

We stopped here for dinner during a long road trip. We were very happy we did. The steak and chicken kabobs were tender and juicy. I substituted the potato for more veggies and was very happy I did, lots more veggies. We sat inside and thought the atmosphere had an pub-style quality. It has an open air kitchen. We would stop here again when passing by Butte.

We ordered the steak sandwich with caesar salad, and a side of onion rings. We could not eat the caesar salad - the lettuce was ice cold and limp. No attempts were made to disguise the fact that it was made way in advance, and then put in the fridge. The steak was not seasoned, and the entire meal was cold within 5 minutes because the food was put on cold plates and the restaurant was cold. The restaurant was busy on a Saturday night, and the waitress made no attempt to come and ask us how the food was. Several attempts were made by other waiters to clear our table and shuffle us out, however we waited until our waitress eventually showed up with our bill so we could tell her how we felt about the meal.
