Route 56 Grill

Looking for a new dining experience on base besides your usual haunts? Why not try the newly remodeled Route 56 Grill at Thunderbolt Lanes. You can order anything from the “Big Lebowski” (double-sized breakfast burrito) to the half-pound grilled Texas beef melt for under $6. Route 56 Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

At Route 56 Grill, you can build an omelette, burger or pizza with an array of toppings to choose from to satisfy the craving for the day. Bacon chicken ranch and meat-lovers pizzas are two of the specialty pizzas that can be ordered.

The few times we have been to the grill we have not been disappointed. Whether you are eating in or taking out, the service has been quick, easy and affordable. So if you are looking for a quick, tasty bite to eat, try Route 56 Grill.

Willhite recommends the buffalo wrap

Welch recommends the breakfast sandwich with egg, ham and cheese
