Who knew so many Hurricane establishments would grace the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list? Color me surprised, too. But here we are in Hurricane to try FireSide Grille. The restaurant, which opened in 2011, features new and traditional American fare - burgers, salads, sandwiches, steaks and chicken.
I initially thought this place was a chain restaurant because a standalone building, with nice finishes and branding is not a super common occurrence. The interior has brick work, cool hanging lights and some exposed industrial work inside.
I ordered the "Mega Mini Sliders," which is three slides with cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion served on mini pretzel buns and mini dill pickles. I also got a side of their beer and cheese soup.
The sliders are kinda tough to eat because the meat is less of a patty and more of a ball that a tower of veggies has been built upon. Once I unhinged my jaw, these are decent. The pretzel bun was a bit tough, and the meat could have used a dash more seasoning. But, I'm nitpicking. They were good. And the soup was pretty good, too.
