Last July, I wrote a review on Jack N Grill, the original location, on Federal Blvd in Denver. That blog posting received a lot of traffic. Now I know why. Everyone was googling “Jack N Grill Westminster” and anxiously awaiting the opening of the new North location. Today, for a belated Cinco De Mayo celebration and early Mother’s Day celebration, I had the opportunity to visit that location. And true to form, it was a great experience. I would even argue that it is better than the original Jack N Grill location on Federal Blvd. This location is much more spacious so if the parking lot is full, fret not- the wait is still only about 10-20 minutes, and the service is quick- amazingly quick. They state on their menu that they are not known for fast service and at the original location, I would have to agree with this. But at the Westminster location, the service was amazing! We brought the kiddos with us and were nervous that it would take long but they did not. They were turning tables around pretty quickly and with people waiting outside by 7pm, we knew their motivation to do so. The Westminster location is easy to get to and park at, and there is ample parking because of the Babies R Us Parking lot as well.
Now… onto the main course! The food was the usual tasty fare you expect and love from Jack N Grill – spicy salsa with chips so ask for ketchup for the kids. Their Happy Hour is weekdays from 3 to 6pm so if you plan on having a margarita, read my original review here and be forewarned- they are strong! In any case, the red chile is the vegetarian substitute for their green chile and it is spicy as expected. If you do not want it smothered on your food, ask for it on the side. Many people love their burgers and it is a popular fare- the size of these things are monstrous and I saw most who ordered it could not finish. Of course, many of you may also know Jack N Grill from its feature on Man v. Food. Food won– the monstrous, 7Lb, spicy breakfast burrito could not be conquered. But their menu is very extensive and has something for everyone including the kids. The kids meal are $6 and include a lot of food. If you have kids who do not eat much, I am sure they can split one. The prices on the adult entrees are reasonable and comparable to most other family restaurants. I have to say that for families, this location beats the Federal Blvd (original) location – there is more room, there is more light, the service is stellar, and there were a lot of families at this location. Check out their menu and other information here and visit this family-owned and operated business and let us know what you think! Share your thoughts and experiences here.
