Has anyone heard about this restaurant? Any idea when it may open?

    Looks like it may be open. I was driving by last night and the sign was lit up. I'll check it out later this week.

      Has Kimchi & Sushi closed? That's the same address (650 Newman Springs Rd)...

        No, it's between K&S and Luigi's, where Curves was.

        It's not open yet. From what I could see of the seating it looks like it will be a Baja Fresh clone. Looks like it may be open in a week or three...

          Place is scheduled to open on Apr 27th. They didn't have any menus for me to post...

            Thanks for looking! Did look like a Baja Fresh clone.

            Stopped by and managed to nab one of their Take Out menus. The guy who gave it to me sait it's essentially a draft, and there are a few mistakes with prices and wording (see if you nd one...), but it should give an idea of what they are shooting for.


            It does appear to be sort of a Baja Fresh type setting, but it includes a seriously kick butt Salad Bar.

              Well, we tried it for dinner tonight. Service was very friendly, but a few small glitches that I expect are due to its being brand new. I can forgive them as I expect the kinks to be worked out quickly.

              We got a barbacoa (shredded beef) wet burrito, a steak burrito bowl, and a shrimp burrito bowl. Mixed reviews. The shredded beef was pronounced amazing. The burrito bowls were ok, but will be ordered a little differently next time. I'd like to see them with lettuce like Chipotle.

              I sampled the hot rojo salsa and the habanero smoking hot salsa. Both were very good. The habanero one had a decent kick, and also had flavor.

              Bottom line is that it's on a par with Chipotle, some things a little better, some not as good. It's slightly more expensive, but that's for the extras. It has more variety than C.

              I don't really understand why the salad bar half, but it looked worth trying if I weren't up for Amer-Mexican.

                They've set up a website: http://www.quesogrill.com/

                  Sigh. Coupons on the site expired in December...

                  I hate it when a business does not maintain its website. Tells me that they don't really care about the customer experience.

                    Ive eaten here a quite a few times last year. I'd say the food is pretty good especially considering the immediate area. Lots of options. However, I probably wouldn't make a special trip from far away especially for Queso Grill.

                    I also dislike that Luigi's doesn't have an area to sit an eat slices.
