Palm Beach Grill and Night Club

A grill / night club? What does that even mean? No comments on the night club side of the business here, but plenty to say about the grub side of things.

The Looks

Located in the building previously known as Joe's / Memories / others, it seems another local business man is willing to roll the dice on this off-the-beaten-path location.  It looks pretty much the same on the outside, but the interior has been completely remodeled.  There is a very modern, industrial sheet metal look. Similar to a Chipotle Mexican grill (but less corporate). As you walk in, you are greeted by a burrito/taco bar, with all fixings. The seating area is spacious and comfy. And they are quick with the service.

The Cost
Pretty standard for this type of place. All the main entire menu items run $6.00 (for you vegetarian and chicken eaters), to $6.55 (for you big spender beef and pork types). A soda will cost an additional $1.60, chips and salsa will cost another $2, and chips and guacamole will be another $3.  Not the cheapest lunch in town, but pretty reasonable.

The Grub
If you're indecisive in high pressure restaurant situations, this menu is for you. Not too many many decisions to make before you've got chow in your hands. Choose between one of the 4 following options: Burrito, Tacos, Bowl, or Salad.  Then pick Veggie, Chicken, Steak, Beef, or Pork. Then select toppings to your content. You've been to Pancheros or Chipotle right? Similar stuff. When this corpulent individual dinned here, the meat was of a good quality, and the toppings were plentiful. Chips and salsa were acceptable. Soda was well mixed (right amount of sugary syrup). You'd think the last thing Marshalltown needs is another Mexican place, but the Palm Beach Grill fills a needed Niche (if you ever remember to visit that part of town).
