Saturn Grill

So we’ve been doing this for a while now. Every Sunday night it’s the same routine. We go out, order some pizza, and get down to business. It’s nice. Nice and routine. We’ve read in several places that to keep a relationship like this working, there needs to be some variety, some spontaneity. In an effort to break the routine and spice things up, we decided what we need to start having quickies.

What? Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about reviewing pizzas! This is a family-friendly blog! Wow, you think you know your readers. Anyway, we figure that there are so many places that serve pizza in Okc that if we do a place a week, we’ll be at this forever. So to cover more ground and keep you informed we’ll be breaking with routine every so often and writing up places that mainly do things besides pizzas. Expect the reviews to be fast and dirty (instead of usual, methodical, scientific approach), and maybe even a bit weird (curry pizza, anyone?).

So without further ado, our first quickie.

We stopped by Saturn Grill (the N. Meridian/WEST Memorial location) for lunch today. We should point out that the ‘we’ we use is the editorial we, not the royal We or the plural we. We hope that made sense. Anyway, we ordered the #22 Grilled Veggie Pie, which is the standard Saturn Grill crust with a spinach pesto sauce, topped with grilled zucchini, red onion, bell pepper, portabella mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. The crust was thin and flavor-neutral with a rather nice texture. The spinach pesto was flavorful, although a bit bitter, but not too greasy. The grilled veggies were fantastic. True, they were a bit large and unwieldy, but incredibly tasty. The cheese would have been a bit “meh,” but was saved from that fate by thin sheets of parmesan cheese covering up most of the pizza. Overall, it gets our (editorial 'our') seal of approval.

Non-pizza Note
Saturn Grill also makes sandwiches, or rather, “Saturn grill makes sandwiches and also pizzas.” We heartily recommend the Spicy Turkey sandwich and the Seared Caribbean Jerk Chicken sandwich. Trying to decide between those two has caused many a sleepless night, and contributed to the formation of several ulcers. Trying to choose between them is just that stressful.
Also, the Sweet Strawberries and Spinach salad is great.
Oh, and don’t forget the Cannoli.

We hope you are as satisfied with our new approach as we are, and as always, thanks for reading.

  1. I ran across your review. I'm going to go check it out. It is close to my house and I heard an advertisement and thought I would check it out. Thanks for the info.

  2. I'll try it too. I'm really on a hunt to find a Fabolus Philly Cheese Steak Jersy Mikes is very good but for a foot long it's $13. If you know of a killer Philly let us know.

    Jersey Mike's is the standby for Philly cheese steaks for us, but we'll definitely keep our eyes open. I have a couple ideas for non-pizza related reviews, but we probably won't deviate from our stated goals. That said, we're more than give our readers what they want.
