Diamondback Grill: Sandwiches and More

Taking advantage a restaurant gift card, we asked some friends to meet us for dinner at Diamondback Grill, located in the heart of the Buena Vista neighborhood. We met DG and MG at the restaurant and we chose the casual side of the restaurant. (There is a more formal dining room adjacent to the bar/grill area).

DG and MG ordered an appetizer, the steamed Prince Edward Island mussels with fresh ginger, curry, lemongrass, and coconut broth. They described the broth as being deliciously sweet and gave a nice flavor to the mussels. A crunchy crostini accompanied the mussels and was good for dipping in the broth. (DG is pictured, proudly showing off his mussels)

Joe had the Vegetarian Black Bean Burrito  with spinach, mushrooms, red peppers, corn, cheddar jack cheese, pico de gallo, sautéed asparagus, basmati rice, cilantro lime sour cream, pineapple salsa.

 From the appetizer menu, MG chose the Carolina Flounder fingers with lemon aioli. They were lightly breaded, tender and flakey. The lemon aioli was a refreshing change from your average tartar sauce.
I enjoyed the Monterey Grill, a marinated chicken breast with bacon, melted Monterey Jack, lettuce, tomato, avocado and purple onion on a toasted brioche bun. Lots of applewood bacon and the avacado makes this sandwich extra delicious.

DG had the Diamondback® Sloppy Joe, a masterpiece of a sandwich. made with lean freshly ground chuck that is pan sautéed with red peppers, onions and their homemade southwestern Diamondback® BBQ Sauce. It is served open face on a toasted brioche bun topped with blue cheese apple cole slaw and melted pepper jack cheese. DG highly recommends this sandwich, which his favorite item on the menu. It is unlike any Sloppy Joe you have ever had and it is magnificent.
