Snuggled next to Blue Ribbon Sushi, Bonnie’s Grill has the feel of a college diner, flavored Buffalo-style by western New York native Mike Naber. AC/DC blares from the speakers and photos of the Ramones and other Bowery punk bands overlook the counter. Park Slope singles, couples and families fill the laid-back, though often crowded, boxcar space, which proudly shows all the Bills games during football season. As the “Grill” would suggest, meat is the focus here, and most diners go for the Spiced Black Angus Sirloin Burger—a giant sandwich that tastes like a well-cooked, zesty steak, topped with wedges of fresh tomatoes. Another favorite, the pulled pork sandwich, is heaped so high you need a fork to eat the tangy yet sweet meat that could sway a Texas barbecue fan. The vegetarian chili is chock full of cheddar cheese and beans, without too many veggies to detract from the down-home flavor. Unfortunately, the skimpy wings aren’t the city’s best, but Buffalo enthusiasts might indulge instead on roast beef on weck—a regional hard-roll sandwich.Beer
There’s no bar, but just like back in a college, the beer bottles lining the walls are just a sampling of what’s in the fridge. The list includes four bottled Brooklyn choices as well as Brooklyn lager and two rotating guest draft beers on tap.Recommended Dishes
