I have to admit that I am a total sucker for an old-fashioned hamburger and shake stand. Last month we attended a special event in Logan (the new documentary about Jim Boatwright, we featured an article about Jim’s Story in June) and afterward we were hungry. Just down the street from the theatre, we saw the Center Street Grill. Unassuming from the outside, once you enter, it is a blast from the past. The atmosphere is a lot of fun and the food was great. Juicy burgers served alongside delicious fries or onion rings. For me, the best part of the meal was the ice cream shakes. Yummy! In fact by the recommendation of the girl behind the counter we tried a new flavor that I cannot help but recommend. When I confusedly asked who would put avocado in a shake? Cause who wants to ruin a good diet cheat with a salad topping? She enthusiastically replied “Oh man, it is the best! You have to try it.” She said her favorite was Avocado Cinnamon! I am always down to try something new especially with that kind of recommendation and wow was she right! It was one of the creamiest and yummiest shakes I have ever had. The only mistake I made was to allow everyone to try a bite because I was barely able to enjoy half of it, it disappeared.
The restaurant features some wonderful burgers but also has fish and chips, breakfast and a few specialty sandwiches. It is worth an afternoon drive over the hill to Logan for a treat of a meal. I recommend you go right away before the snow falls.
If you are down for a challenge, the grill offers a special Man vs. Grill challenge every few months. All challengers get 45 minutes and the first to finish the 5lbs burger, fries and drink win. Entry is $20 and all participants get a T-shirts and the winner gets $50 gift card and a picture on the wall of fame. Follow them on Facebook to find out when their next challenge is and join in the fun!
To get there is super easy, drive into Logan and stay straight on Main Street as you drive in out of the Canyon. When you get to the intersection of Main and Center Street, you will see the restaurant on the Southeast corner. Enjoy!
