So, it's a no-frills grill that makes Arabian-influenced American & Mexican fare with Halal meat? I had no idea what to expect from M & M Grill... but a reader recommended it as a hole-in-the-wall with great burgers. And since I love hole-in-the-wall restaurants and recommendations... we went to M & M Grille this week!
The lot is small and the restaurant is small... but it is very very busy. We parked on a side street and walked over (and when construction is done on Almeda, I don't know if you can park on Almeda or also have to look for a side street).
As we walked up, the staff was setting up extra tables in the parking lot and there were tons of people in scrubs, in business casual and just casual. We ordered at the counter and then tried to politely watch tables for people to leave.
Just as our number was called, we snagged a table inside!
The food was great and I don't think we spoke the entire time we ate. Also, I have to tell you about the fries...
At this point the table next to use started to laugh.
Not discouraged, we continued on... since they were crispy with a good bite of potato and a light seasoning, we gave them a 4 out of 5. So, there you have it... at least until we get better at judging and are forced to revisit and re-try the fries.
Remember, this is a hole-in-the-wall that is very very popular... so we expected this!
