Hollister Grill

Hollister Grill is a good place to go for comfort food and a friendly server.  The eatery is simple in design and the service is great.  The sandwiches and starters are what you need to feel contended and cozy.

We started with the Artichoke & Spinach Dip, served with homemade tortilla chips ($5.95).  BIG YUM Factor.  It was really white queso with artichoke and spinach.  Thin strips of Parmesan cheese criss-crossed the top.  Creamy.  Gooey.  Crunchy fresh chips.  Delicious.

Our table tried the Hollister Signature Burger ($7.95 + .75 for cheese).  It was a satisfying burger complete with an excellent chargrilled flavor.  The cheese was succulent with melted goodness.  The bun was soft.  The veggies were fresh.  The french fries, while not homemade, were still very tasty with good seasoning.

Next up, the Deluxe Club ($9.50).  About what you would expect in a Club a good club sandwich.  The bread was thick and soft, yet lightly toasted.  Fresh ingredients.  The potato chips were homemade. Light and crispy.  No seasoning, though, so my mouth was left waiting for the pop or pizazz that never materialized.

Finally, the grand finale of a Sweet Temptation.  We opted for a slice of Chocolate Cake.  Moist.  Light.  Subtle sweet flavor.  Drizzled with a chocolate espresso sauce and cream.  It satisfied our chocolate craving without leaving us feeling yucky from an overly rich cake.

Grill is a quaint, little neighborhood restaurant.  Small parking lot and just a handful of tables.  The service was excellent.  It is what you'd expect from a special little place.
