We've seen a lot of turn over in the small space at 26 E Kiowa St in downtown Colorado Springs, most recently the opening of a fresh new restaurant, the Cheese Grill.
Over the years, the space has included everything from a quaint high end dinner restaurant (Bistro De Pinto) to a very short-lived tequila bar called Salud Tequila Bar. Other tenants tried the bar theme too, like Whiskey Dicks and the Downtown Bar-n-Grill.
But the new owner at The Cheese Grill is taking a different approach with fresh cheese sandwiches, salads, and of course Mac & Cheese entrees. The setting hasn't changed much, but already the food is a huge step up from Salud Tequila Bar. Cheese Grill prices and moderate with sandwiches ranging from $6 - $11 which are served with fries. If you're looking for something on the smaller side, macaroni balls and jalapeno poppers are great options around $6 each. Our favorite part is the local, high quality food including products from Ranch Foods Direct and tap beer from Rocky Mountain Brewery.
We tried the Caprese Grilled Cheese, made with balsamic marinated tomatoes, fresh basil and whole milk mozzarella on italian bread ($7.95). Perfect light sandwich with a fresh taste, but still enough to fill you up with the side of fries. If you're still hungry, you can always indulge in a fried snickers with vanilla bean ice cream for desert ($6.25).
If you're going to dine in, make sure you hit happy hour from 3pm-6pm for $2 domestics and $3 premium beers. Otherwise, carry our and lunch delivery are available.
