An option: Chef Mike’s Charcoal Grill

Chef Mike’s Charcoal Grill has moved into the former Abuelo’s on 86th Street. The new location has allowed an updated bar with Bottoms Up dispensing for rotating IPAs. The kitchen was expanded to include a huge charcoal grill.  Mike Atherton is a long time Pike Township resident, where their children attended school and his daughter is a teacher at Pike High School. Mike and his staff take pride in making their own sauces, dressings, bread, crust.

We started with the Buffalo Brussel Sprouts​ ​with gorgonzola cheese. The Brussel sprouts were delicious. Followed with Chef Mike’s Apple Onion Soup and Mandarin Salad with house made poppy seed dressing. Our entrees were Bar-B-Q Pizza with brisket and grilled onions. As a Pike alumni, I ordered the Red Devil Burger, spiced with fresh jalapeños and habanero Havarti cheese plus Chef Mike’s special hot sauce on a house-made bun and French fries. The fries are hand cut Yukon Gold, batter dipped and fried in lard. We enjoyed the sweet and savory flavors in our order. We finished our dinner with a shared Chocolate Chip Brownie Sundae, and yes the brownies are made daily.
