The Sixth Street Grill is a casual cafe serving affordable comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Tried this new New West spot a couple of Saturdays ago. The place was slammed. Looked like two very large groups in for dinner, one a birthday celebration, and every other table occupied. In short, the kitchen obviously couldn't keep up.
This is a smallish space but still big enough, if full, things could get sort of crazy in the kitchen. Clearly they were overwhelmed but dispite this our server tried her best with menu's quick to come, water re-fills and a few updates on when our rather simple order would arrive.
They serve comfort food here. Big dishes of lasagna with garlic toast, huge order for the price, all day breakfasts, chicken, burgers, etc. Nothing fancy but big plates for the price.
I went with the half chicken dinner with baked potato and veggies, my dining partner the salsbury steak.
My meal included a small salad that was just fine, my partners meal included a small bowl of some of the worst tasting clam chowder I have ever tried in my life. Watery, not clamy enough, just plain bad. I would re-visit the recipe for this one.
After that clam chowder I thought we might be in trouble but was pleasantly surprised when my half chicken dinner arrived after almost a full hour after ordering. Although I was given mashed potatoes when I actually ordered baked, I let it slide for the most part. My chicken was delicious. Fresh ,tasty, juicey, not at all dry and a very big portion for the 10 dollar something price tag. Everything was piping hot and even the mashed potatoes that I didn't originally order were hot and fresh.
They are new and working the kinks out in the kitchen so I am willing to cut them some slack. They tried hard and for the most part delivered. I'll be back to try them again, next time I will pick a night that is not quite as busy. But please, do something about that clam chowder recipe.
DH & I came here on Saturday night shortly after 6 pm.
The place was packed.
Luckily we got a table without waiting.
Spaghetti was on special for $ 6.95 so we both ordered it.
DH had the clam chowder which he said was good & I had an iceberg lettuce salad.
When the spaghetti arrived, the portion was noticeably smaller than before.
The garlic bread was previously soaking with butter but now you could see that they had just spread the butter on it lightly. It was still a good thick cut of bread.
Dessert was rice pudding or jello.
We both ordered the jello which turned out to be blue jello.
When you first enter the restaurant, there is a table with menus + newspapers & a sign listing the daily specials + the prices.
However, what they also need is a sign 'Please Seat Yourself'.
Newcomers will enter & stand there waiting for someone to seat them.
Puzzling thing is why the servers just walk around them, don't even tell them to seat themselves + ignore them.
I saw one guy come in, stand around for a few minutes...the server walked around him, didn't say anything to him & he left.
The 2 servers tonight were friendly & efficient.
I have eaten at this spot several times now. It represents excellent value. It is not the fanciest food your going to find but then the prices are not that fancy either.
I have had several breakfasts there and if you can get there before 10AM on weekdays the Early Bird Specials are hard to beat.
The other day I had lunch a Shrimp Salad sandwich that came with a small soup, fries and a small coleslaw. The sandwich was good and the coleslaw was very good. The beef barley soup should have been called spicy tomato barley soup. It was quite spicy and very tomato based and you would have to search far and wide to find any beef in it. The Fries were a total miss being soggy and not fully cooked. Terrible.
I have had the Liver and Onions dinner as well and it was pretty good. Had one vein in the liver but all in all it represented very good value. Of course you can detect the use of flour to thicken things up in several of their soups and gravies but it is still palatable.
This is a small diner and I will keep it on my list of regular spots to go.
We were excited when a new western cuisine restaurant first opened approx three years ago. We have been there numerous times since they opened and food has been average no matter what day of the week. Service is better during Monday through Friday. Sunday is the worst day to go to this restaurant as this is their busiest day and they find it difficult to deal with high volume of customers.On Sundays they bring in a family member an older gentleman to help with customers and he is rude and lazy. The restaurant is currently for sale hopefully the new owners will keep it western cuisine.
