Dekker’s Mesquite Grill is a little gem in the Flusher area. We’ve been here on several occasions with and without kids. They have a great outside sand play area for the kids. On the weekend they have bands play so when the weather is really nice it’s great to sit outside. They don’t take reservations so be sure you get there before the crowd, because once people show up it’s hard to get them to leave.
This time we started out with Spinach N’ Cheese Dip $9 (Spinach, bacon, and our cheese blend melted to gooey perfection with crispy tortilla chips.) as well as Calamari $12. The spinach dip was really nice and thick and creamy and I would recommend trying it. As for the calamari it fell short. I did appreciate that the serving sizes are larger than most places so they are great for sharing.
D had to try a cup of their Poblano Soup $5 which was on their list of specials. The soup hit the spot and we both agreed it’s worth ordering again.
For the main dish we each ordered something off the specials I had a Red Snapper with Ettoufe topping $35 and D ordered the Redfish $33 also adding on fried asparagus for $4. Both of our dishes where excellent and cooked really well. We where able to take home leftovers with the portions being so large.
This is a great date night, family restaurant, group setting all rolled into one. Can’t wait to head back.
