Dinner at the Range

A few months ago, Barbarella gave the lowdown on breakfast at the Range in Hillcrest at that all windows spot in front of the Ruby Room.

She covered the barbed wire and dairy crate ambiance and even captured the sideways steampunk fan things hanging from the ceiling.

My dad and I grabbed dinner and a beer at the cage free grass fed free range American eatery, the most promising restaurant I’ve yet seen at the ever-changing location.

We started with the brussel sprouts, a decent portion at $4. The sprouts were cooked perfectly – slightly softened , but retaining crispness – with bits of bacon adding saltiness.

Image

A pint of Sculpin IPA went well with the bacon Swiss burger which included homestyle pickle chips, onion, and spring mix.

Image

The quality of the meat was evident in its juiciness and flavor, which was enhanced by a dash of avocado ranch that came with the side salad.

Image

Pops got the mushroom cheddar burger and, like myself, a fan of most things food, he said it was good. The sweet potato fries are excellent.

Image

All told, the dining environment is casual and the prices (burgers $14) justified by superior ingredients that sit well with the conscientious carnivore.

With no less than 8 big screen TVs, the two-level Range holds regular free movie screenings with dinner.

The next screening is Dirty Dancing on the evening of Wednesday, February 8.

Call in reservations at (619) 269-1222.
