While waiting to check in at the Emerson Resort and Spa in Mt. Tremper, Mike & I need a fill in as we arrived a bit too early to check in. We hadn't ate lunch yet, so we opted to drive 5 miles over to the nearby town of Phoenica.
We drove around Main Street until we came across a cute looking pizza place called Brio's Pizzeria. After scanning a menu, we decided Brio's would be the perfect place to kill an hour prior to check in.
We decided against pizza as we had our share on our trip to Chicago (just 3 weeks prior to this vacation). I ordered the Black Bean Burrito and Mike ordered a Deluxe Grilled Cheese sandwich.
We were both satisfied with our lunch entrees. The serving were big and the food was pretty decent for a small town restaurant. My serving was so large that I had to split it with Mike.
The menu includes a variety of everything you can think of, which will satisfy even the pickiest eaters. Prices were decent too: our bill was under $20!
Brio's Full Menu
The woman working behind the bar counter doubled as our waitress, so the service was a bit slow. We had a bit of time to waste before check in, so we didn't mind the wait. In fact, after the 4 hour drive we were more than happy to relax for a bit!
The inside of Brio's is your typical family diner style atmosphere, cozy and casual. Brio's is very popular for their pizza; you can watch and smell pizzas cooking. Very tempting!
Overall, Brio's is a good choice for visitors to Phoenica. The town is small with only a handful of choices. Brio's is a safe bet with a crowd pleasing menu, featuring decent food at affordable prices.
