When you’re looking for generous portions and fast-casual dining that will please everyone in your family, Backyard Grill is the place to go. With a nod to Greek-American cuisine, the Backyard Grill takes fast food to another level – you’ll find creative, healthy ingredients that are never pre-cooked, always fresh and prepared to your liking.
One of the most popular items on the menu is the roasted Greek chicken, served with rice pilaf, roasted potatoes, fresh veggies, pita bread and a choice of soup or salad. There’s also a variety salads and wraps, with a number of healthy proteins including the grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon or sirloin; traditional or chicken gyros; quinoa; chicken salad; and albacore tuna salad. Look around and you’re sure to find someone digging into the Backyard Grill’s most popular salad, the black quinoa salad, which is tossed with edamame, cucumber, avocado, red pepper and green onion and a poppy seed dressing. Another hit are the burgers, because the beef is 100% all natural prime beef, ground fresh daily.
The Backyard Grill also offers family packs that serve anywhere from four to 12 people, along with a catering menu, making it ideal for those nights you have to feed a crowd. The Backyard Grill opened in Highland Park two years ago, with the original location in Chicago going strong since 2004.
