If you ever drive through the Las Colinas area you may have noticed they’ve been building a 54th Street Grill right off 635. While I was not exactly ecstatic they were opening another sports bar chain in the area, I decided to give it a try now that it’s open. While the food isn’t life-changing, they have some great happy hour specials I couldn’t help but share with you….
My husband and I arrived right before 9:00 to a packed restaurant and standing room only bar. The bar area is covered but opens up to the outside where there is additional couch-style seating around a fire pit. There are about ten high top tables next to the bar ideal for watching a game. They have giant flat screen TV’s that align side by side along the wall and also scattered throughout the restaurant. Once we realized 9:00 started their “reverse happy hour”, the ordering began. I went for their $4.99 White Sangria that was very sweet and tasted like it had a little too much peach schnapps in it while my husband had a large draft beer that was a little flat. They have a very large selection of cocktails that are reasonably priced (most around $6.99) but one of the best happy hour deals is their “house cocktails” for only $3.35. Vodka soda, whiskey coke, whatever your poison, that’s a pretty good price.
Now for the food… we started with the Red Canyon waffle fries and Gringo Dip. The Gringo Dip is a creamy pepper jack cheese dip blended with pico de gallo and the “Street’s secret spices”. The waffle fries tasted fresh and they had a nice seasoning on them. Next were the “Shrooms” that were the biggest mushrooms I have ever seen filled with herb and garlic cream cheese, battered and fried with a side of creamy horseradish dip. They were very flavorful and filling.
By the time we snacked on those two apps we were almost full but wanted to try their boneless buffalo wings and 54 sliders. I thought the portion of boneless wings was generous (there were a dozen) for the $5.49 price. The meat was good but I wasn’t crazy about their wing sauce. It was a little on the smoky flavor where I prefer something tangier. This is just a personal preference. Lastly were the 54 sliders. They come dry with grilled onions and a piece of American cheese. Not the most beautiful presentation but they were pretty good.
I would imagine since this place just opened it will get better with time. All of the staff were very nice and helpful and I look forward to going back to try other items on the menu! Have you been here before? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
