King's Grill opens up at the base of Snow King

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Today, Snow King Mountain will open King’s Grill, a new family-friendly, all-American restaurant at the Rafferty lift base area. The menu is based on traditional American favorites infused with regional flavors from around the country. The restaurant's menu is led by Executive Chef Christian Bustamante, who enjoys the creative process of developing a menu from scratch and is looking forward to sharing his unique take on American classics with guests at Snow King Mountain. “I’m really excited to bring something different to the families coming through the doors of King’s Grill,” said Chef Bustamante. “While we have crowd-pleasers like pizza and burgers - or plain elbow macaroni with butter for the kids - we also give people the chance to try something new.” The menu includes a Southern Burger ($15) with crispy shallots, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and a tangy Carolina-style bbq sauce. The LA Street Dog ($8) is a slightly more sophisticated take on the traditional frank wrapped with bacon, and topped with grilled peppers, onions, jalapeño and garlic aioli. The menu also offers options like carne asada fries ($12) with grilled steak, cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, and guacamole. The Kids menu, ranging from $6-$8, features kid-friendly fare with a selection of housemade chicken tenders, a burger, pasta 3-ways, grilled cheese sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, and a fruit bowl. And don’t forget, there’s always room for ice cream! King’s Grill provides a place to stop for a hand-dipped ice cream sundae, a creamy chocolate shake, or a quick soft-serve waffle cone. Root beer floats as well as “The Avalanche” - ice cream blended with candies and cookies - round out the menu for diners with a sweet tooth. A soft opening to the public beginning today at 10 a.m. will provide an opportunity for Chef Bustamante and his team to put the finishing touches on the restaurant in preparation for a busy Memorial Day weekend. *Feature Photo: Chef Christian Bustamante. h/t Snow King Mountain /
