Ask Tom Yenne what's on the menu at his Huddle Bar and Grill in Caseyville, and the first thing he'll tell you is that the food is better than the name implies.
"It's not bar food at all," Yenne said.
He just opened for business at 1101 Caseyville Road, Suite J, located near Collinsville High School. Inside the Huddle Bar and Grill, you'll find steak kabobs, teriyaki kabobs, fish tacos, philly cheese- steaks, pizza and ribeye steaks. On Thursdays, the special is a 14-ounce new strip with mashed potatoes.
The Huddle opens at 11 a.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Call 618-855-8555 to find out more.
