Billerica- Newtowne Grill
I passed by the place this morning and the sign said it was open already, very curious, has anybody tried them yet? what specialties do they have?
I was there on Monday (opening night) and the place was hopping. This is a casual place with lots of big screen HD TVs and easy dining. They featured appetizers, pizzas, burgers, salads, as well as entres such as steak tips and chicken/ziti/broccoli. I had a great 1/2 pound burger with fries for under $7 - definitely not your standard patty variety. I didn't see anything on the menu over $14 and portions appeared generous.
The bar area was loud and busy with a 25 - 40 age crowd. There is plenty of seating in a lower area where one can escape the bar atmosphere.
With low(er) drink prices and inexpensive food, this place should become popular quickly.
The owners of Newtowne having taking a sagging dirty building and practically gutted it. The food is wonderful with choices different than we have at other places in Billerica - Turkey Tips and warm spinach salads for example. The gourmet pizza I had last night was just wonderful. The bartenders are neat and pleasant - I am pleased to find this- after being treated so poorly at the Garrisons in town.
Prices are great - atmosphere FUN and parking behind the building and across the street.
Congratulations to the new owners - this is a winner.
We just went there for dinner. Waited 20-25 minutes for our food and then my meal was cold. We will never go back.
