Continental Grill Family Restaurant 3815 W. Washington Street

For some reason we don’t venture to the west side very often. I discovered this place by “surfing the web.” It started out as a Waffle House and opened in 1970. It changed identities recently and appears to be doing very well.

The menu is huge and they have different specials every day, breakfast and lunch and dinner. It would seem as though some of their lunch specials are menu items at a reduced price. However they did offer a Swiss Steak Manhattan which really intrigued me. They also offered an 8 ounce rib eye with toast and 2 sides for $9.99. That I couldn’t resist.

They aren’t much on presentation; as you can see. It didn’t matter. The steak was a perfect medium rare and delicious. They had an extensive list of sides but I decided on butter beans and potato pancakes.

Butter beans are not seen on too many menus. I enjoy them; and here they even serve them with a fresh buttery taste spread.

The pancakes were probably not made in-house but were pretty tasty. They were made with mashed potatoes and had a nice crisp to them.

So if you are hungry but not sure what you want than this joint may be just the place for you. Lots to choose from with big portions and good prices.

    We used to go here when it was still a Waffle House (the old sun/moon one) and never had a bad meal. Hearing that it’s still the same people and menu, and reading your review, let’s me know it’s time for another visit!

    I never go to the west side. Like, airport if I have to, but otherwise, nope.

    • My first wife’s family is from the Speedway area so I have been to the west side more than I need to. Though I am always looking for a good joint to eat and there is a very nice Asian store that way.
