Pinky's Westside Grill – Restaurant Review | Condé Nast Traveler



Tell us about your first impressions when you arrived. The restaurant is fun and rollicking. Between the dinosaur in the parking lot and the Volkswagen Beetle on the roof, Pinky's Westside Grill seems like a perfect candidate for Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives," and for good reason—it's been on the show twice.
What is the crowd like? Families, locals, tourists; they're all here to chow down on some good old-fashioned comfort food.
What should we be drinking? There are well-priced cocktails, but you should embrace the kitsch and order a Sparkle Pony, a homemade Italian cream soda.
What's the food like? Waffle fries drenched in pimiento cheese, burgers rising three patties tall, fried pickles, corn dogs, hush puppies—if you can eat it, Pinky's will fry it.
How's the staff? They're as cheerful as the space itself.
Who should we bring with us? Bring the kids and let them eat whatever they want—you'll earn parent-of-the-year status.
