Grease Monkey is a planned stop for me while in Arlington volunteering for Special Olympics during the Memorial Day weekend. I don't remember I found this place by mistake or looked it up after a recommendation (my neighbors granddaughter worked here). However, I love their burgers and FRIED PICKLES.

The food was ok but if I go back I'm trying something else as the blue cheeseburger and bean and cheese nachos were pretty average. Decent sized indoor seating and a small patio outside good for guests with dogs.

I ate here for the first time and I wasn't disappointed! The Philly cheese steak was huge and delicious, the kids burger patty was bigger than the bun and the loaded French fries had tons of melted cheese, meat and jalapenos. All was very tasty and they have a burger and fries special for $5.25 during the week.

Went here for dinner b/c they came up as pet friendly. We had wings and fried poppers. Both very good. The manager came out to pet our dogs and see if we need anything for them. The staff was great, nice outdoor area. Great beers!

They are on special currently and were yummy. Had them with lemon pepper seasoning. They have a pineapple cider on draft that was good as well. Looks like a cool place for when they have live music!

The Grease Monkey Burger Shop and Social Club team has a goal to change the Arlington Restaurant / Bar experience. “The Monkey” combines hearty burgers, wicked libations, serious music and a party deck destined to be the place to be seen on a beautiful Texas day. We are excited to be part of a new Downtown Arlington REVIVAL focused on bringing the people back to where Arlington Business and Arlington Cool were born.
