Hurley's American Grille


I caught an episode of Restaurant Impossible which featured Hurley's American Grille (formerly Edibles before Robert Irvine changed the name) and since we pass near it on the way to our daughter's I put it on the short list of places to try. I have a soft spot for places that are trying to turn themselves around and I find that the ones featured on Kitchen Impossible tend to be more inclined to succeed.

Like a TARDIS, it is bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. The bar area and entranceway seemed untouched by the remodel, but still quite nice and inviting. The dining area has that Robert Irvine look of budget trendy, but tastefully done with an aeronautic feel to reflect the proximity to the Naval Air Station.

We both ordered the bacon bleu cheese burger at nine bucks. Mine was ordered medium and Teresa's medium well. Both arrived well done, but were still rather tasty having been seasoned properly. They were not dry at all. In fact, it was a darn good burger for the price. The bacon was a bit overcooked, but not bad though, and the blue cheese sauce was very good, either home-made or from a good supplier. The fries seemed fresh cut and were well executed. They were also ample.

The service was friendly and prompt. Overall, a good meal for two for under twenty bucks. I'd say they are better than average and definitely a good value. Stop by sometime and help keep them going.
