Bonfire Grill & Bar: Happy Hour Report Card
Charred jalepeno poppers with gooey marscapone and tender belly bacon ($6).
The Hours: 11am - 10pm, Wednesday through Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday). That's right, all day, every day-- in the bar area only.
The Details: Cozy up to this happy hour bonfire with 1/2 off well drinks, $1 off drafts, $5 house wine and an extensive list of bar eats that range from $5- $13.
We opted for the Charred Jalapeno Poppers ($6)-- skewered and grilled to gooey marscopone perfection--, Chips and "Bonfire Whiz" ($5), Deviled Eggs ($5), and the Smoked Chicken and Grilled Artichoke Sliders ($9).
Bonfire gets a Happy Hour grilling, after the jump.
The Interior: Warm, cozy, and inviting-- like the bonfire at your favorite summer camp, only with way better music than your camp counselors acoustic Kumbaya and way better fire charred snacks.
The staff was downright adorable, relaxed, welcoming and full of enthusiasm about menu items and our overall Bonfire dining experience.
The Cost: Two draft beers and four sharable and genurously portioned bar menu items came out to $33, before tax and tip.
The Conclusion: Seconds after stepping inside this newish Old Town Scottsdale Grill-house godsend, the smell of their pecan woodfired grill, alone, had us wondering what took us so long to get over to Bonfire.
Propping ourselves up on cozy bar stools, joking with their charming staff and mowing down on heart-felt southern style cuisine, we were left with the sensation that sitting next to a bonfire with our closest friends would give. Bonfire's warm hospitality, love for good food, and good company, can literally be felt in everything they do-- whether its a dish, a smiling staff member, or a killer happy hour price.
We cant stop thinking about the grilled jalepeno poppers-- warm melted marcopone cheese, a delicious charred flavor and a subtle kick of spice, delighted our every taste-bud, and their housemade Idaho potatoe chips served with a mind-melting cheese dip formed a new habit we love but our love-handles may hate.
Its safe to say, this Bonfire is one we can't wait to revisit.
