When you think of the Granada Theater, what do think of? Let me guess, fun venue and awesome shows. You’re absolutely right but you’re missing one key item; food.
I had a great opportunity to taste a lot of items on their menu. I didn’t know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Here is a recap:
The Black Angus BBQ Sandwich was my favorite out of all the food I tried. It literally melted in my mouth. Their homemade brisket is slow roasted in Shiner and herbs for 12 hours and topped with their legendary BBQ-chipotle sauce on top of a toasted bun. This is a MUST try!
If you’re like me, I’m addicted to mexican food so it made me so happy to see black bean nachos on the menu. These nachos had creamy queso, fire-roasted salsa, savory black beans and all the “fixins.” You can enjoy these with or without meat and customize them to your preference. I tried them with no meat and had no complaints, I would suggest you do the same.
Yes, another mexican item – I was in heaven! These “Granada” tacos were to die for. The ingredients included pulled chicken, diced pineapple, queso fresco and sriracha. To be completely honest, I wasn’t that enthused about trying these. I’m not a pineapple person, and the idea of mixing them with chicken on a taco didn’t sound appetizing. I was proven wrong, the diced pineapple and sriracha mixed strangely well together.
Is your mouth watering yet? The Granada has two different pizzas to try – Margarita and Buffalo. Both are delicious, I prefer the Buffalo Pizza (pictured) which has a blend of hot sauce and ranch topped with spicy fried chicken, mozzarella, red onions and scallions.
Scoobie Snack! This isn’t your average cookie, it tastes like a mix between a cookie and cake. It’s thick and has the texture of cake but tastes like a cookie. There were lots of chocolate and M&M’s to go around. This should be shared with a friend unless you have a big sweet tooth.
Chef Patrick Stark is the man behind all the menu and culinary changes at The Granada. Chef Stark “always recommends the blackboard special. It’s something fun and playful. One thing we always have is the Pineapple Express. It’s a taco with pineapple, queso fresco and sriracha sauce. You can get black beans, chipotle-roasted chicken or Shiner-braised brisket in it.”
Next time you stop in for a show at the Granada be sure to grub out and give their food a try.
Granada Theater is located at 3524 Greenville Avenue, Dallas 75206.
