The Grinning Mule
Bart and Beth (the owners) impressed me. They were extremely welcoming. First time I been there and I felt I was with family. The food was delicious, the environment was cozy, the drinks were tasty. Wait staff extremely pleasant. Not a single negative thing to say. Ordered: Chili app, garlic bread, artichoke dip. Oxtail Bowl and Prime Rib (horse radish sauce was immaculate) and Brussels sprouts were perfectly crispy. The pineapple coconut mule and song of the south were AMAZING. This will be a normal spot for me.
I ordered pick up and it was pretty fast, next time, I need to sit in and enjoy some yummy drinks.. I ordered the loaded chilli bowl which was VERY HEARTY and yummy, it was served with cornbread and chips. Ill say this, take away the cornbread, or fix the cornbread..it was very dry and no flavor..the chips were so yummy my daughter ate them all.
My husband and I went with 2 of our friends and we ordered lots of shareables, every dish was amazing could not recommend more highly. The cocktails are creative and so so good. And the service: everyone seemed genuinely happy to be at work. They made it fun for us as guests. Go here!!
This place is amazing! Highly recommend the grilled caesar salad and tuna poke tacos - but also everything Ive tasted has been PHENOMENAL. And the cocktails are amazing as well. I cant wait to come back and try the french onion mac and cheese!
The Grinning Mule is a hidden gem in Plaza Midwood. My husband and I eat here regularly and always love every drink and food item we order. Service is also great.
