not being from the area we initially had a difficult time finding Bushfire Grill as it is tucked in and just west of Trader Joe's. I will say that the menu board is not the easiest thing to read partly because of its location, the amount of information and the lack of light for the menu board. the staff is all pleasant and an asset to the restaurant. there are more than plenty of options. we had the lamb curry with brown rice and it was very tasty but i was not expecting shredded lamb meat, in my opinion it would present better with chunks of lamb which may, therefore, necessitate a higher grade or cut of lamb. the short ribs were mildly spiced and closer to a good cut of beef stew as it was lacking the typical short rib cut. the amount of rice they give you is a lot, those carb counters will not be able to finish it all. the bushfire special was a sandwich with their tender beef but the meat was devoid of flavoring and the meat is cold; it would be best served warm/hot unless we missed out on something. the side plate of 4 options turned out to be very good but probably ended up being more food than the 3 of us could really eat. prices are reasonable and there is indoor and outdoor seating. in this area of temecula there are a lot of eating options but if you want something casual with tables/chairs and not a big chain restaurant i would highly recommend Bushire Grill. we also noted a lot of take-out orders and this was at 8:30pm.

Found this great place and keep going back. The staff are SO nice and professional! The food is wonderful! Chicken/rice bowl or hamburger.....best we've had! Sitting outside is very relaxing and cool with the mist. GO, you'll be glad you did.

This restaurant serves some of the healthiest food in Temecula. Natural chicken slowly prepared by rotisserie. Natural beef dishes are slowed-cooked until they simply melt in your mouth. All are available separately, or served with some of the most delectable sides this side of Paris. If you want cheap food, don't come here. But if it's top quality and superb taste you're looking for, look no further.

Just so you know...this is not a sit-down and order restaurant. It's cafeteria style, with wait staff bringing you your meal in most cases. And that's fine by me for what I was looking in for in a lunch meal. We ate outside the main restaurant and it was very pleasant. The person who took our order was very patient with our questions, and the server who brought our meals was friendly and helpful. The lamb curry was awesome, and the sweet potatoe fries (more like homefries) were tasty, maybe just a bit over-cooked, though. The chicken and rib plate was great also. The portions of both meals were good, there was just enough food, and the pricing was fair. We will be back when we are in the area for sure.
