Located downtown, Grill is a favorite among our readers for its food, its 24-hour service and its festive, retro décor. Grill junkies rave about the properly named "freakin great tortellini" and the burgers, as well as the delectable milkshakes. Also a hit is the nightly entertainment the Red Room offers, including record-spinning, live music shows and video-game nights. No matter what time of day the mood hits you for a giant bowl of tater tots or a grilled-cheese sandwich, you can count on a fun, laid-back atmosphere and great food.
