The Grid Iron Grill and Sports Lounge

There's something for everybody at Grid Iron Grill and Sports Lounge. Whether you've got a hankering for burgers, chicken, pasta, sandwich, salad, steak, or seafood, Grid Iron has them all.

I told owner Burke Risetter the wide selection at the Grid Iron is one reason I'm a frequent patron. I like to head over to the restaurant on the east-side of Webster City and grab some dinner and watch a game. If I'm still busy at the office, I like to order out a wrap or salad and head back to work.I told owner Burke Risetter the wide selection at the Grid Iron is one reason I'm a frequent patron.

If I'm still busy at the office, I like to order out a wrap or salad and head back to work.

Even with the variety of foods available, I usually can't resist ordering one of the great burgers at Grid Iron. Of course, not every burger craving is the same. Sometimes, the stomach calls for the classic combination of mushroom gravy and swiss cheese on an angus beef patty. That's when I go for the Mushroom N' Swiss burger. Other times, I'm feeling the need for a spicy kick to a burger. The Grid Iron Five Alarm Burger, topped with hot sauce, pepper jack cheese and jalapenos served on grilled texas toast sure packs a strong kick. One of my friends always goes for the Lynx Burger. It's a half-pound beef burger with homemade chili, shredded cheese and diced onions served on Texas toast.

Whatever kind of burger my stomach demands, I can get it with a quick run over to Grid Iron.

One of my favorite dishes to get on-the-go is Grid Iron's Chipotle Bacon Chicken Wrap. If you're a bit of a bacon fiend like myself, you'll like the combination of chicken strips, barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, Swiss cheese, bacon and chipotle sauce. It's got just enough kick to it to be noticeable, but not enough that I'm sprinting over to the office water cooler.

That wrap just isn't complete without a great side, and Grid Iron sure has some great ones. The first time I ate at the restaurant, the waitress told me about their fantastic waffle fries. They did not disappoint. They're not too crispy or too tender. They're just right. I ordered them with almost every meal before Burke told me about their sweet potato fries. I hadn't had many sweet potato fries before, but I never would have thought they could be so flavorful.

There are many more things I have yet to try at Grid Iron. Burke says I have to try their award-winning tenderloin, which they hand-bread and prepare fresh every day. He said they're always trying out new dishes and I look forward to sinking my teeth into them soon.
