For today’s edition of “We’re Open,” we visit a new locally-owned restaurant in Flour Bluff that can pretty much make anything.
Flour Bluff is a growing community and getting bigger all the time and more restaurants are also popping up. One of the new ones is The Bar & Grill at 2148 Waldron Road that is right down the street from the high school.
They have a wide variety of menu options specializing in American staples with a Texas twist. They have chicken fried steaks and chili cheese dogs and even a Philly cheese steak egg roll.
And there’s more.
“We are doing unique burgers that no one else is doing anywhere in the area,” said Robert Flores, co-owner and chef for the restaurant. “Like a hot and spicy burger that has queso and chorizo with hot Cheetos on it."
His restaurant business partner takes his hand at the grill, too.
"Between me and Rob,we can cook anything so we want to be able to accommodate anyone,” said David Lee, the co-owner of The Bar & Grill.
The restaurant in Flour Bluff has only been around since late December but they are already making a huge impact.
They offer discounts when it comes to catering for schools.
They recently cooked up 150 enchilada plates for teachers at Veterans Memorial High School.
The drive to Flour Bluff was well worth it, according to Vets mom Judy Herndon.
"The quality of the food is great and the service is great and you can always count on that here,” Herndon said. “We were on a limited budget and of course they were able to work with us."
The Bar & Grill has a huge heart for those struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We are all local and we are all in the community so we are able to help out so we are,” Lee said. “Every Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. we are giving free meals to anyone affected by COVID-19. It's sponsored by all of our restaurants - Rock & Roll Sushi Lounge on the Island, here at The Bar & Grill and at Mudbugs Cajun Icehouse. That's the pickup location and we are just making a bunch of meals and giving them out. No strings attached. All free."
The Bar & Grill in Flour Bluff is open seven days a week.
