My review of Yolo Grill, a new burger place at 803 N. West St., comes out in tomorrow’s Go! section. But you can read it now.

I decided to check out Yolo after receiving several glowing e-mails from readers, raving about the burgers. And they were good — and inexpensive. (Inexpensive is an absolute requirement for Wichitans when it comes to burgers.)

Have you tried it? Let me know what you think.

One restaurant opens, another closes

Good news for west siders: YOLO Grill, a restaurant owned by Aaron and Cindy Cline at 803 N. West St. that specializes in made-from-scratch food such as burgers, hand-cut fries, pork sliders, Reuben sandwiches, hot dogs, onion rings and more, is open.

Its hours are 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. For more information, call 316-260-8008.

But bad news for Derby-ites. It appears that Wheat State Pizza, a family-owned restaurant with a good reputation at 236 W. Greenway, has closed. Its last day in business was Tuesday, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. The restaurant had been open since February of 2011.

Opening soon on West Street: YOLO Grill

Another restaurateur is giving it a go in the old Sonic at 803 N. West St. that in recent years has housed La Reyna 2, Sloppy Joe’s, Si Senor, Takhoma Burger and more.

The sign went up this weekend for YOLO Grill, a restaurant that also has a Facebook page that says it will open very soon. It’s owned by Aaron and Cindy Cline and will specialize in made-from-scratch food such as burgers, hand-cut fries, pork sliders, Reuben sandwiches, salads and more.

YOLO stands for “You Only Live Once,” according to the page. The restaurant will have carry-out service and outdoor seating. There’s not much space inside the actual building, which recently got a new coat of bright green paint.

Once open, the restaurant’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

I’ll let you know when there’s a firm opening date.
