Joe's Real Farm Grill

Thursday night Scott and I went on a little date to Joe's Real Farm Grill. Neither of us have ever been to the farm grill before, but considering we love all of Joe Johnston's other restaurants we just knew that we would love it as well.

Well, needless to say we did end up really loving the farm grill and their great food (and also the cute surrounding landscape).

We were both kind of in awe of the building that this patio sits in the back of. I unfortunately didn't snap of photo, but I can tell you that it was the owner's childhood home that he turned into a restaurant. The room that we sat in after we got attacked by bugs outside was the Johnston's living room, and the original mod fireplace was still en-tacked. They even had neat mid-century modern chairs in there that I swear came from Modernica.

Scott and I had: Onion rings, pesto burger (his), portabello mushroom burger (mine), and french fries.

The farm grill also has one of the most unique bathrooms I've ever been in, complete with a television playing old-skool claymation cartoons, and barbies/GI Joe mounted in shadow boxes on the wall.

Have you tried any new restaurants lady? Or maybe just visited an old favorite? If you live in the Phoenix Metropolitan area, do you have any suggestions of restaurants that I should go too? I would appreciate the suggestions very much! Scott and I are always looking for new places to try!

Happy Sunday!


  1. I'd love to go there sometime! I've been to the coffee place nearby, but not there yet. Looks so amazing and full of character! If it weren't so far away I'd go tonight :)

  2. i love taking pictures in bathrooms... but it seems so scandalous.

  3. Ooh I love the view! Those are huge onion rings! Haha. I love the last photo of you, you're beautiful!
