Black Rock Bar & Grill
Steaks sizzling on volcanic rock heat up the Naperville dining scene
Black Rock Bar & Grill at 2740 W. 75th St. in Naperville (630 445-8648) is literally heating up the steakhouse scene.
Thanks to a sizzling 755° Australian volcanic rock, diners get certified Angus beef ready to eat in a matter of seconds.
“Every bite is as hot and juicy as the first, and it’s always cooked the way you like it,” says Assistant General Manager Kevin Jacobs. The stones, which stay hot for 45 minutes to an hour, are heated overnight in one of many kilns on the premises.
Popular appetizers at the 220-seat restaurant are the dueling pretzel and cheese fondue and bubbling shrimp. A noteworthy entrée is Taste of Black Rock — a 4-oz filet and 5-oz sirloin.
There’s also a multitude of conventionally prepared choices: burgers, sandwiches, ribs, lasagne and desserts. And there’s full bar service, with some 34 beers on tap.
With venues in Michigan and Florida, this is Black Rock’s first foray into Illinois. Hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, with midnight closing on Fridays and Saturdays.Edit Module
