MUST EATS at THE GROWLER:
Served on a pizza tin and foil this MOUND of fries is almost a mountain. Roasted and covered with cheese and bacon, this sinful appetizer is over the top. Get some ranch and ketchup for dipping and find your self closing your eyes and finding your zen. We almost did yoga in our plate.
—THE SPICY PULLED PORK PIZZA:
Unique idea of pulled pork pizza, but they kicked it up a notch with heat. This pig pizza is on fire with flavor and just the right amount of kick. Nice innovation, Growler.
—THE SWEET CHILI WINGS:
A Sweet and Spicy saucy sauce, that is sticky and finger licking good.
—THE ORGINAL SUB: A nice 2 piece sub, with Italian style lunch meat. Salami, Pepperoni, Capiccola, Marinara, Mozzarella and Banana Peppers make this sub a popular choice. Served with potato chips it is a filling lunch or dinner.
Nice and hearty, these breaded mushrooms, are a big order and they taste great.
