I am surprised how many people don’t know about Mr. Grill. I tell people where it is and they say, “Oh, the ice cream place?” Yes, they do have ice cream there, but that is not all. They also have some crazy delicious sandwiches served on hot, fresh scones (got your attention there, huh?) and some scrumptious hand-cut fries. Mr. Grill is a family-run business owned by Ron and Mary Spann, people who are passionate about making delicious, one-of-a-kind food.

One thing that makes Mr. Grill stand apart is the fries. Mmmmmm … the fries are exceptional. The fries are handmade fresh right when you order them. And they are addictive. I love them because they are a bit thinner than the usual fry, more like shoestring fries. They are crispy and soft and hot and just yummy. Tyler Oliverson, my accountant friend, said, “It is like In-N-Out Burger’s fries but better to the power of 10.” I believe that he meant that these fries are way better than In-N-Out.

r

I got the Philly CheeseSteak and it was beyond yummy. It had big strips of ribeye steak, diced peppers, provolone cheese and some exceptional sauce. What made it really delicious was that it was served on a fresh, hot scone. The scones are soft with a crispy outside. And let’s talk about the meat. Everything is fresh and local from Springville Meat Company. The burgers are made with ground sirloin … you get the picture.

r

Nick got the Spanish Pork Philly (love the name). It is Philly Cheesesteak made with pork and it has bit more spice and heat to it. Nick got his with banana peppers and Ron said some people even put jalapenos on it. The pork was tender and tasted delicious with the zesty sauce.

r

Megan and Tyler Oliverson both got scone burgers but each one had a unique flavor and style to it. I love how you can customize your burger. Tyler got his with Ron’s signature raspberry spicy sauce that I could honestly pour on anything. It is just sweet and spicy and delicious. Ron also makes a pineapple relish that is to die for. Dustin Harrow got the brat with sauerkraut and it was pretty delicious.

r

Christie got my favorite item on the menu, a grilled chicken sandwich on a scone with raspberry spicy sauce and ranch. I know that sounds a little bit crazy, right? Ranch and a raspberry sauce, but wow! Those flavors just blended and it was delicious. Christie was a little hesitant to go for the scone bun, but she thought it was perfect. The grilled chicken was a good-sized portion and was very moist and tender.

rMary Spann Working the Magic of the liquid nitrogen to make ice creamr

After we were done with our meals, we had to try the Sub Zero Ice Cream. They take a cream base and using liquid nitrogen create amazing ice cream. The really cool thing about it is that anyone can have a frozen treat. They offer bases that range from cream base to low-fat base to non-dairy bases like almond or coconut. Then you can choose your flavor and mix ins. I really like Crazy Monkey Banana with banana, cake batter, peanut butter, marshmallow, Butterfinger and almonds and caramel on top. Yummy banana overload. I loved the combination of flavors and the crunch from the Butterfinger.

r

The ice cream that blew my mind was the Raging Cajun. It has Mountain Dew, Fire and Ice (spicy), gummy bears and marshmallow cream. The flavors just explode in your mouth. You have the citrus of the Mountain Dew with the spicy fire and ice and then those gummy bears. You eat it and then a second later you have a little burn from the fire and ice.

r

So the moral of the story is you need to go to Mr. Grill. Mr. Grill is located at 788 N. 800 East in Spanish Fork between Café Rio and Papa Murphy’s. They are open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
