Pull Up Grill & BBQ 2412 E. Raymond Street

This joint has only been open since March. Pat learned of it from a teller at his bank. As you can see it isn’t that big and there was already a line at 11:30.

Their special on Wednesday was a Rib Tip dinner with 2 sides for $9.95. So that is what we both ordered but with different sides.

I ordered my special with greens and mac and cheese. I know I said I wasn’t going to order mac and cheese out any more but the pan they had on the steam table just looked so inviting and the weather was so rainy I could not resist. All of the portions were healthy.

The tips were really very good. Most of the pieces were plump and tender with a thin layer of fat that helped keep them moist in the cooking process and with a very nice flavor of smoke. A few of the pieces were very lean so they ended up a bit on the tough side. Still edible just a bit chewy. The greens were outstanding. The liquor had a nice peppery finish to it. As for the mac and cheese it was pretty good. Nice and cheesy and I got to it during the sweet part of the day. Before the constant heat on the steam table started working on it.

Pat’s green beans.

So for a new joint they really seem to have their act together. I am with Pat. I would like to return for some ribs and pulled pork and of course Brisket. They have so many good things to try. Here is a link to their website. https://pullupgrill.com/daily-menu

  1. I like how the logo looks like chicken and flames at the same time. You’re a sucker for mac and cheese!

    • I know. I am a firm believer that mac and cheese should be built with a roux generated cheese sauce and finished in the oven. No one does it that way anymore, but I keep on looking. This mac was pretty good, probably a sauce from a can but still belly filling comfort. You’re right the logo does look like a flaming chicken.

    • Sometimes the sides are the best part.
