The Blue Canyon Grill was founded in 2004 by Ted and Jolynn Johnson as a downtown sports bar and grill specializing in great burgers and fresh, exciting appetizers. The Blue Canyon has been in it’s current location at 1301 Washington Ave since early 2010.
The current location is part of the old Foss Drug building, which has been renovated multiple times in the last few years. With lots of wood and stone, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, with a large fireplace in the main dining room. The restaurant also has a full-size garage door that opens onto Washington, with a few tables placed on a patio in front. In all, the atmosphere is contemporary but homey, and very comfortable for a pleasant lunch.
All this is good, but what about the food? If you order one of the two most popular burgers, your taste buds will be thrilled with some of the best flavors one can imagine. The Poblano Pepper burger and the Bacon Cheddar burger are culinary masterpieces, and the cooks at Blue Canyon do an expert job of giving you the best food in very short order. The food was presented a mere 9 minutes after placing the order, and it was cooked to perfection, exactly as ordered. With such joyous flavors executed so well, these burgers are sure to please even the most discerning palettes.
While one might reasonably expect high prices for such quality, they would be pleasantly surprised that Blue Canyon is competitive, charging $9 before tax for their classic burgers. Considering that these burgers are not only fabulous quality but are also huge at ½ lb, and come with a nice heap of fries, that’s a steal! As one in possession of a very large capacity stomach, you can be assured that these burgers will keep you comfortably full for many hours.
If you are hankering for a great, big, wonderful burger at a decent price, stop by the Blue Canyon Grill. Friendly staff, very fast service (at lunch, anyway), and great food combine to produce a local treasure. Visit the Blue Canyon Grill, and tell them you want the best burger in town!
