Summer Road Trip Menus Return to Kingfisher Bar & Grill (MENU)


May 29, 2024
By Matt Sterner

It’s that time of year again. The birds are chirping, the sun is scorchin’, and the dishes are taking shape at the midtown restaurant that’s known for its annual tour.

Kingfisher Bar & Grill’s 2024 Summer Road Trip, which is a culinary journey through different regions of the U.S., began on Monday, May 20.

It’s a road trip that doesn’t require much travel. It’s an excursion that dodges the awkward pit stops at tourist traps and not-so-clean restrooms. It’s the annual celebration of signature dishes from across the country.

From now until Saturday, June 8, they’ll be serving a Southwest & Baja menu.

Get it while it’s hot!
