The new King’s Grill at Snow King Mountain is open, and you need to check it out. After a fun day hiking on the mountain or taking a spin down the Cowboy Coaster, King’s Grill is the perfect spot to stop for a great meal. Dishing recently sat down with chef Christian Bustamante, who is bringing a fun twist to traditional American cuisine, to find out more about his menu, summer specials, and the future of King’s Grill.
Bustamante, originally of Los Angeles, wants the restaurant to have a simple yet unique American comfort food menu. King’s Grill showcases great burgers and hot dogs, including the LA Street Dog, which is a bacon-wrapped beef frank with grilled peppers, onions, jalapeño and garlic aioli. Pair a sandwich, burger, or dog with one of five different fry options. Bustamante suggests the carne asada fries as a must try when dining at the grill.
Instead of pizzas, King’s Grill is serving up flatbreads that are perfect for sharing or enjoying to yourself. Try a speciality flatbread like the wild and domestic mushroom or create your own. Everything on the menu is house-made, including the flatbread dough. Bustamante’s top five picks on the menu include the chicken katsu sandwich, the carne asada fries, mushroom pizza, the street tacos, and the chili cheese fries.
This summer there will be $2 taco Tuesdays featuring street tacos (coming soon), a two for one beverage special (including milkshakes!) running until June 10, and the menu will be seasonal featuring the best of what summer has to offer. The patio will be a great spot to hang out after playing on the ropes course or riding down the alpine slide. If you are on-the-go and planning a hike throughout Snow King, stop by the grill for some great grab-and-go options or box lunches. After your hike, grab a cold beer and enjoy the views of Snow King.
